Where does the time go? Nearly another year has gone by and always lovely to see our regular, loyal clients, but I do have to say we welcomed lots of new clients this year and a large proportion of them are ‘cruisers’.
Our very own cruise expert has great expertise in this area and is happy to assist with enquiries, or for those of you who have not cruised and think this is something you might like to consider, but need steering in the right direction, please come in and talk to Sarah.
One area which is growing fast is the ‘River Cruising’ market and so much is on offer to passengers of all ages. Companies are introducing new ‘family’ cruises along the Danube timed for the festive season, plus new ships are offering a Nile Christmas Cruise. Is dance your thing? Strictly always brings dance to the forefront at this time of year and we have river cruises offering live performances, which not only makes you feel good, it helps you connect to a destination in a way that nothing else can. Of course, you can also join in, because apart from anything else, dancing is great fun. On the beach or in the bar, whether you are a toe tapper, an enthusiastic Dad dancer or you know exactly how to strut your stuff, everybody is welcome. All inclusive options are increasing with Operators and this includes shore excursions not only food and drink.
You can take to the dynamic waterways of Southeast Asia in style and navigate your way through a tapestry of colour and culture. Cross country borders and see the river banks come to life while indulging in the luxuries of modern day cruising. Some ships are specially commissioned and offer state of the art standards. Most are like luxury floating boutique hotels not just a conventional river cruise ship. Each perfectly appointed suite benefits from its own balcony, en-suite bathroom and living space, so you can be sure your stay on this mighty waterway will be as comfortable and luxurious as it is culturally stimulating.
With the introduction of direct flights from London Heathrow to Nashville (domestic flights from Manchester can be included); this opens up the South of America and Steamboat cruising. Once onboard you will find a relaxed, warm and welcoming atmosphere and a highly trained crew. Elegant staterooms offer comfort and when it comes to dining there is a wonderful array of culinary experiences.
There are an increasing number of UK travellers who are choosing to explore the world alone and some operators are offering new destinations ‘For Solo Travellers’. We have an abundance of brochures to assist in finding the right river cruise which can be extended pre and post cruise.
