    Going on holiday is the closest thing we have to an existential pause button which allows us to temporarily break free from the everydayness of our lives. In this bewitching limbo, far away from any regular routine, we can flirt with other versions of ourselves, trying on lifestyles, sampling activities, and tasting food that we would never encounter as our regular selves. 'Office you' can't wake up at 11am, knock back a cocktail and hit the spa, take an afternoon trapeze class then eat an elaborate seafood dinner before watching a water-based acrobatic show on the pool deck against the backdrop of a vast ocean, milkily rippled by moonlight. 'Cruise you' can do all this and a ship-load more. Cruises still offer the traditional entertainments - casinos, live music, West End style theatre shows, swimming pools, themed dances - but years of one-upmanship from the cruise lines means that what passengers can now do on-board reads like the world's most ambitious bucket list. This towering mountain of memorable experiences is too humungous to cover here in totality, so we'll just give you a blast of the highlights. It's worth remembering that entertainment on British ships is low-key when compared to the razzle-dazzle of American ocean liners and that bigger ships have more options to help you fill those sea days. Through the clever use of simulators, you can now skydive in 100mph winds in the calm of a neon-lit night, surf actual waves on a FlowRider, try Formula 1 racing with all the bumps and whining engine noise, and watch films in uncannily realistic 4D - all whilst floating in the middle of an ocean. If you're keen to learn a new skill the choices are endless and include glass-blowing, jewellery-making, painting, learning a new language, SCUBA diving, acting classes run by RADA, and cookery. For a physical challenge you can try dance classes, laser tag, bungee trampolining, rock climbing, submerged spinning classes, yoga on deck and ice-skating below on a rink that transforms into an ice-theatre at night. When you feel like a cerebral work out solve puzzles to make it out of an escape room, attend a lecture, enter a crossword tournament, or visit the planetarium and let Tom Hanks be your guide to the stars. You can even unleash your inner star and become part of the entertainment by participating in game shows, mystery dinners, karaoke sessions. Singers can compete to become the Voice of the Ocean in a floating version of the hit TV talent show that comes complete with those iconic spin around ‘I want you’ chairs. Children will never forget having breakfast with Snow White, or training to be a Jedi and fighting Darth Vader before watching a Star Wars-themed stage show (complete with that unforgettable theme music) which ends with a dramatic firework display. Those of you brave enough to commemorate your holiday with an on-board tattoo will have to wait until 2020 when the Squid Ink Tattoo Parlour opens aboard Scarlet Lady.

      Before motorways tore across the land and passenger planes doodled vapour trails in the sky, the number one way to travel was by water. Cities grew up around rivers which provided a vital source of drinking water and later served as convenient trade routes. For a low-stress way to see some of the world's most fascinating cities, packing your bag and heading for the water is still the best option. A river cruise will free you from traffic jams, airport security queues, and the cumbersome burden of trying to follow your sat nav whilst simultaneously getting your head around driving on the right. You can visit multiple cities without the hassle of making a string of accommodation bookings, and instead of worrying whether your next night's sleep will be in a rat-infested box-room in the dodgy part of town you will have the comfort of returning to the same clean and well-appointed cabin each night. Cabins on river cruises come complete with built-in blue-tooth speakers, flat screen TVs, USB charge points and mood lighting. You'll also find an on-board spa, gym, cafe, and plenty of activities to enjoy like yoga classes on deck and wine tasting sessions. All-inclusive city to city river cruises means no nasty surprises in your holiday budget and the guarantee of a good meal made fresh every day on board after a trip ashore for adventure. Authentic excursions are at the heart of modern river cruising giving you the chance to visit a floating Cambodian market, take a guided tour of an Egyptian crocodile temple, try bee-keeping for a day, and share a traditional meal with a local Italian family in their home. Your cruise operator is the key to accessing attractions and museums after hours and will often be able to arrange queue-jumping privileges, discounted tickets, and behind the scenes tours for you. They can save you hours of waiting in line or trawling the internet for deals. You can sail into the heart of some of the world's greatest conurbations including Amsterdam, Budapest, St. Petersburg, Cairo, Shanghai, and Vienna. Alongside the delights of the city, you will also experience the magical atmosphere and rich history of the rivers themselves. Rivers like the Danube, the Elbe, the Volga with its caviar-creating sturgeon, and the Yangtze, are cultural icons in their own right, inspiring countless pieces of art, music, and literature. River cruises take the trouble out of travel by transporting you overnight to your next destination which you can then spend the day discovering. Your itinerary will include some daytime sailing too allowing you to kick back with a cocktail as a beautiful and constantly changing shoreline vista of Gothic castles along the Rhine or verdant vineyards along the Rhône unfolds before your eyes. You don't have to choose between a fly or drive city break and a river cruise because a cruise can easily be added on to the start or end of your trip for a truly unique perspective of your destination.
