Cruising has become one of the most popular holiday choices in recent years and it’s easy to see why. What could be better than a floating luxury hotel, shopping centre, health club and spa, not to mention gourmet dining and poolside cocktails!
We decided to ask our resident travel experts at Idle Travel for more information and here’s what they told us.
These new coastal cruises are very popular – sailing around the UK, usually for three, four, six or seven nights. You can sail from Southampton, Liverpool or Portsmouth around the beautiful UK coast, waking each morning to a new view, bringing a new appreciation for the beauty on our doorstep.
Excitement is definitely in the air across the UK as cruise lines welcome guests back onboard to experience the joy of sailing once again. There really is nothing like a cruise experience where your every need is expertly taken care of. You can relax on deck, indulge in boutique and designer shopping, enjoy a spa experience or visit a live music and theatre show.
We’ve all missed that holiday feeling and now is the time to start enjoying life again in a safe environment. Cruise companies have worked very hard to put safety measures in place, with an emphasis still on enjoyment.
There are a number of cruise companies offering UK Coastline Cruises, P&O, Iglu and MSC to name a few, and with so much to see and do whilst on board, you will be spoilt for choice.
If you are a foodie, there are gourmet restaurants with celebrity chef menus and demonstrations. You can also discover new and exciting wines with wine tasting classes.
Maybe you prefer those fun, onboard activities, spa experiences, live shows, going to the cinema or just watching the world go by with your favourite novel, whatever you prefer, it is made available for you on a UK cruise.
With cruises returning and being so popular, guests are kept safe by only being allowed to disembark at ports of call on organised and approved shore excursions. Guest safety is at the forefront of the return to cruising. With strict vaccination and testing requirements, stringent onboard health and safety protocols, and amazing ships packed from bow to stern with entertainment, activities and delicious dining, you are bound to have the time of your life.
