Not all cruises are created equal. Whether you’re completely new to cruising or a veteran cruiser from way back, it’s important to choose the right type of cruise to suit your travel style and needs. Here are four, different styles of cruising worth considering for your next trip:
A slow-paced, gentle way to experience a destination, river cruising is popular for a good reason: it’s such a relaxing way to see the world. A good option for seasick-prone travellers who may want to avoid ocean cruising, river cruising is all about elegance and sophistication. Offering luxury amenities and a rich program of cultural and culinary activities such as wine tasting, private concerts and museum visits, river cruising is a popular way to see a different side of Europe and South East Asia.
From huge ships complete with kid-friendly waterparks, arcades and mini-golf, to boutique vessels home to fine dining restaurants, private lounges and day spas, there’s an ocean cruise to suit every type of traveller. Whether you want a quick break in the sunshine with your family or hope to circumnavigate the globe on a blockbuster journey to celebrate your retirement, whatever you want from a holiday, there’s an ocean cruise company that can deliver it.
One for lovers of nature and adventure, expedition cruising to the far reaches of the earth is the type of expansive journey you’ll never forget. From forging through ice floes in Antarctica to exploring the remote islands of Papua New Guinea, an expedition cruise is a rewarding trip for curious, hardy travellers who yearn to discover something new.
How does a classical music cruise through the heart of Europe sound? What about a wellness cruise that includes a daily program of meditation and yoga sessions? From country music themed cruises to voyages that celebrate everything from fashion to wine, there’s a themed cruise to suit all types of special interests. A fun way to meet likeminded people and enjoy a holiday that includes your favourite hobbies and interests at the same time, themed cruise itineraries are offered all over the world. Book well ahead to avoid missing out!
