It’s coming up to that time of year that the summer and all its fun and frivolity is nothing but a fading memory into the colours and chill of the autumn air, and so you might start finding yourself fantasising about travelling somewhere warm and sunny with some sea and sand rolled into one. If you aren’t sure where to head off to, why not consider a few places by way of a cruise? The perfect answer to those who are looking for a bit of luxury and a little taste of a number of places!
The Ultimate World Experience
If you’re an avid traveller already but you’re looking for something containing a bit of luxury with everything you need taken care of, you might find that a round the world cruise is exactly the kind of thing that is up your street. With a number of options for routes, the only question left to ask yourself is “which one?”. You can embark on a world cruise by way of several routes: London to Singapore, London to Hong Kong or London to Auckland to name but a few. What could be better than jetting off for 60 to 120 nights aboard a world class luxury cruise liner?
You might be wondering what types of things are included in a trip around the world on a cruise liner, and that’s an excellent question. You would be surprised to know that most cruise lines offer full board on their ships, including self serve tea and coffee and snacks throughout the day (including late night!). Also included are shows and entertainment, and occasionally (on some cruise liners) even your alcoholic drinks are included – but check prior to boarding to see if this is the case with your specific package.
Ports of Call
Ports of call vary from route to route and liner to liner, so choosing the right route for you and what you want to experience is the best bet. Some routes take smaller cruise liners due to interest or the ports that they will be calling into, so booking well in advance is essential for some cruises. A lot of companies also offer early bird discounts, and other fantastic benefits for booking early. Additionally excursions while in port are a fee on top of your booking, so make sure you take this into consideration when booking your cruise. The benefit though is that you can add them on after you’ve made your initial booking in many cases, so don’t think you need to pay for everything in one shot up front. That’s the benefit to cruises as a whole, usually – the ability to create a booking account and add to it in advance of the trip so that you can essentially make payments toward the trip.
So overall, taking a world cruise is a great way to see a number of the amazing sights of the world without having to pass up luxury and quality. Cruises are fast becoming a favourite mode of travel for many people around the world, and you can easily see why. So take a chance on your next trip and book a cruise – you won’t regret it.
