Which Cruise is the Cruise For Me?

Which Cruise is the Cruise For Me?

26 Aug 2022 Travel Tips
Travel in this day and age can be complex. Cruising, on the other hand, is a total breeze. The saying that ‘there’s a cruise for everyone’ has never been truer. While travel was suspended for much of the last few years, cruise companies have been building new vessels showcasing breakthrough designs, implementing new technology to take your experience to an even higher level, and developing new itineraries offering access to new destinations. So make the most of Cruise Month and explore the many choices on offer when it comes to taking your next holiday to the water!


Take to the high seas onboard an ocean cruise and you can expect grand ships, an incredibly wide range of onboard activities, dining options galore and destinations that span the entire globe. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being welcomed aboard a floating hotel that rivals any land-based resort and feeling the ocean breeze caress your face as you leave all your worries behind. The sense of escapism is unmatched, as you unpack once then relax to enjoy your time away to its fullest. We love an ocean cruise for:

A wide range of destinations across the globe, from local sailings to ocean-crossing voyages and fly-cruise packages
Options for all budgets, but always promising excellent value for money
Family-friendly environments for a family of four or the multi-generational clan
Extensive onboard dining, from casual to a la carte and celebrity chef-inspired
Entertainment, all day and all night round!


While we love the open ocean, there are so many places that ocean ships just can’t reach. The world’s great rivers are crammed with delights and hold an irresistible lure as they flow around bends, through dramatic gorges and across entire continents - there’s no such thing as an empty horizon on a river cruise. With 360-degree panoramic views from open decks, you’re enveloped by lovely landscapes as you arrive right into the heart of a region where all you need to do is step ashore to start exploring more. A river cruise is our pick for:

Intimate settings with less guests
Closer proximity to your destinations
Regular scenery changes on iconic waterways
Extensive and unique off-ship experiences to really get to know a place


A world of incredible possibilities opens up when you cruise expedition style. Much like traditional cruising but with an adventurous, educational twist, this is the choice for those wanting total immersion in destinations you simply can’t reach by road, rail or air. Picture kayaking in the shadows of icebergs in Antarctica or having up-close encounters with the wildlife of the Galápagos Islands. Make the most of your exploration with onboard expedition teams featuring science-oriented guest lecturers to share the secrets - region specific - on all things culture, history, geology, biology and more! We recommend an expedition cruise for:

Bucket list destinations not easily reached by land or air
Unique activities in remote destinations
Onboard experts that enrich your experience
Intimate, smaller-scale ships
A real adventure without compromise on creature comforts


Demand for luxury cruising has never been stronger and there’s now an incredible range of options across ocean, river and expedition cruising for those who seek out a truly extraordinary experience. Luxury means different things to different people. Whether it’s the offer of submarine and helicopter tours straight from the ship or service that far exceeds expectations, whatever your preferences are, there are certain elements that all ‘true luxury’ cruise lines have in common. These include:

A high crew-to-guest ratio 
The luxury of personal space and privacy
Exceptionally attentive, professional service
Truly all-inclusive amenities, dining and drinks
