Make your way from the calm waters of the Nile to the steps of the Taj Mahal, from the awe-inspiring ice caps of the Antarctic to tropical paradise and everywhere in between.

Industry leading organisers present their their unique offerings; from the luxury liners to intimate river journeys. Discover your dream holiday and we'll take it from there.

    One of the biggest appeals of the cruise holiday is being offered the chance to wake up in a new and exciting destination almost every day. You may go to sleep as your ship sails from Antigua and the following morning, you’re on the vibrant island of St Kitts. It is a fantastic way to explore so many places while only ever having to unpack once. It’s also a great way to sample destinations that you may decide you’d like to visit for longer at a future date. If you want to visit some lesser-known parts of the world, such as Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, then a cruise ship is waiting to take you there. I’ve visited many destinations that would likely never be on the radar for a land-based holiday, yet they’ve turned out to be some of the most interesting places I’ve ever been. The small Estonian island of Saaremaa being one of them. I bet you’ve probably never even heard of it. I hadn’t until I cruised. Another appeal for many is having the chance to experience things that you only can experience via cruise ship: transiting the Panama and Suez Canals, and sailing the stunning and majestic fjords of Norway, New Zealand and Chile, for example. Even sea days are a highlight as you stand on the open decks and look for dolphins, whales and many other sea creatures. During a recent world cruise, I went to bed on February 19 and the next day it was February 21, we lost a whole day because we crossed the International Date Line. There was a big party onboard to celebrate, you’re not likely to get that at 36,000 feet. Destinations such as Norway and Iceland are very expensive to visit as a land-only option, so a cruise lets you see the key destinations for a much lower price. You can select your shore excursions and experience the best that each port has to offer, without paying huge costs for hotel accommodation, in-bound travel, food and any other expenses that may arise. Not all ports are only visited for one day – which many people believe - there are dozens of cruise lines now that focus on real destination-based experiences, so you’ll often find several places in one itinerary where your ship will remain in port overnight, thus allowing you the freedom and opportunity to explore key sites during the day and local life by night. Cruise ships are designed and built to explore every inch of our world and the destination choices are more impressive every year. I’m almost certain that wherever it is you want to go, there will be a cruise ship that can take you there. If you want to spend time immersing yourself in one place, that’s also an option, as numerous itineraries focus on taking in the very best of specific regions and countries, Australia and South America being prime examples of this. You really can have it all. Smaller ships also offer other advantages, such a river cruising experience and the chance to visit hidden destinations that larger ships simply can’t access. You’ll also find that many of these places are off the beaten track and would likely never pop up in a holiday search. So, you can have the typical island-hopping itinerary in the Caribbean, or you can choose something more specific and indulging. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you’re going to have the time of your life.

    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.
