Types of Cruising
There is no such thing as a typical cruise. Cruise liners range from an intimate group of passengers to thousands, catering to all ages, interests and expectations. Spoil yourself with choice with a range of cruise itineraries, indulge yourself on a luxury cruise, have a cruise wedding, or holiday like royalty while you cruise on a budget.
Wherever you may roam
The type of cruise you choose to embark on doesn't only affect the style of holiday; it also determines what destinations you travel to. Adventure cruises charter the roughest seas to reach far off places such as Antarctica and Alaska, but can also take you to exotic and hard-to-reach places including the Galapagos Islands.
No destination is unreachable, especially thanks to the Fly & Cruise packages, which allow you to access cruises from all over the world without having to spend too much extra on getting to them. If you'd prefer to not roam too far or for too long, there are short cruises that give you a generous taste of the exciting cruising lifestyle, before taking you back to the comforts of home.
Open your eyes to the world
A cruise holiday doesn't have to only be a chance to relax and escape the thralls of everyday life; it can also be an opportunity to discover new parts of the world including fascinating cultures, wildlife, locations and people. The world is enormous and some of its most exciting parts are only accessible by crossing kilometres of ocean.
The variety of cruise types lets you choose what kind of world you want to see, whether your passion resides in the cold and hazardous environment of Antarctica, wild seas out on the infinite ocean or even the native tribes on exotic islands.
Become someone new
Holidays have been known to transform people, even if they've only been away for one week. Cruises remove you from your usual surrounds and introduce you to an array of environments and cultures over a short period of time. Choosing a specific type of cruise can tailor the experience towards who you've always wanted to be, whether that's an adventurer, a prominent businessman or a jetsetter who lives without boundaries.
You may find yourself in the same parts of the world made famous by documentary makers and historians, or you might be sharing drinks with famous faces and renowned industry leaders at a bar on your cruise ship.
