Cruising is one of the most popular activities for holiday-makers because they offer the opportunity to travel to several destinations in one go whilst enjoying a relaxing break. There are so many different cruise options to choose from and it’s possible to travel to many exotic destinations around the world.
From the Mediterranean to Alaska, taking a cruise is a great option for couples, individuals or groups of friends. There are many benefits to taking a cruise, not least of which is the value for money that comes from being able to visit multiple destinations in one vacation.
What are the Best Cruises to Take this Summer?
And the real bonus when cruising is that you only have to unpack your clothes once (when you reach your cruise cabin!)
There are hundreds of different cruise ships available – whether you opt for a bijou option or a large, expansive cruise ship.
There is really something for everyone, most come equipped with swimming pools, tennis courts, casinos and more. You can also learn a new skill on a cruise ship, from pottery to languages or dancing, which is ideal if you are sailing on your own and want to meet new people.
If you dream of visiting the beautiful Mediterranean, an MSC cruise where you can explore exciting destinations such as Barcelona and Santorini is definitely for you.
One of the top cruise ships you can sail on is the MSC Meraviglia, which is also one of the swankiest cruise ships around. Features include an indoor promenade complete with LED lighting, a water park and an incredible variety of restaurants.
Like the cold? Cruising isn’t always about the hot destinations as you can also visit cold places like Alaska. Guests can enjoy watching the stunning Alaskan landscape from their private balconies or observation decks.
You can also take a cruise around Scandinavia and travel to the likes of Norway, Finland and beyond. Not only is it a chance to see the beautiful scenery, but you might even catch a glimpse of the incredible Northern Lights too!
If the chilly weather is not for you, you could consider a trip to the Caribbean for a fabulous, rum-tasty treat.
From exploring volcanoes in St Lucia to getting to know stingrays in Antigua, there is certainly a great choice of Caribbean cruises for everyone. And we all know how amazing Caribbean beaches are!
One of the coolest places to go in the Caribbean is the fabulous Paradise Island in Nassau, where you can enjoy some incredible cocktails at one of the biggest casinos in the Caribbean, but there are so many to choose from! Definitely, one to add to your to-do list if you are looking for some late night action!
It’s no secret that I have a real passion for cruising and definitely plan to take a cruise this summer. I think that cruising ticks all the right boxes when it comes to meeting my travel requirements. The big question is, will you take a cruise this summer?
