Some people are adamant that they will never take a cruise. “It’s not for me.” “Why would I want to be stuck on a ‘boat’ for 7 days with thousands of people unable to get off?” Having been cruise specialists for over 20 years, we’ve heard plenty of excuses why people don’t like the thought of cruise holidays. We know once people have experienced a cruise, they’ll never look back. In fact cruising continues to be a growing type of holiday with over 1.9 million Brits taking a cruise last year. Because of the years of expertise and knowledge in the cruise industry, we know there’s a cruise out there for everyone…even if you’re wanting to bring your pet! Here are just a few cruises you may not have thought of when you first think about taking a cruise holiday.


Sail on a wonderful teak-decked boat as you cruise around the stunning coastline of Croatia. Spend 7 nights on a luxury yacht catering to just 38 guests. Enjoy an intimate, uncrowded feel and the sense of exclusivity as you dock in the small harbours that populate the Dalmatian Coast. Relax on the sun deck, wander ashore or discover a local bar. With longer stays in port and short scenic coastal sailings, you’ll have the freedom to see the ports on your terms, or take an included excursion to the must-see sights.

A cruise around the Galapagos will change the way you see the world. Experience the most diverse wildlife on planet Earth in their natural environment. Snorkel with sea lions, admire the majestic ancient tortoises.
