Top 10 Cruises to add to your bucket list

Posted December 3rd, 2014

Thinking about going on a cruise holiday? How about journeying on the world's biggest cruise ship? Or having a picnic on a real lawn in the middle of the ocean? Check out our top 10 cruises to add to your bucket list.

A World cruise

Don't limit yourself to a cruise of the South Pacific or Australasia if you can do it all. Once you do one cruise, you're bound to be back for more and with all of the inclusions and on-board facilities, it's one of the most cost-efficient ways to travel the world. Tick travelling the world on a cruise off your bucket list and do it all, while only unpacking your suitcase once and letting the destinations come to you.

World

Cruise in a glass capsule

Experience views from a glass capsule high in the air while you sail through the Pacific, around New Zealand or further abroad. Royal Caribbean International’s new Quantum of the Seas ship features a glass capsule, originating from the London Eye. The capsule suspends itself up in to the air to give its passengers picturesque panoramic views of the ocean and surroundings. This unique ship experience sets itself apart from the rest with all kinds of activities to keep you busy or to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Cruise the Greek Islands

Holiday in the Greek Islands the right way, on a cruise! A Greek Islands cruise is the best way to relax and see the islands. Think glittering sunshine, amazing food and beautiful golden beaches.

Greece

World’s largest cruise ship

With the ability to carry over 6,000 passengers, Allure of the Seas weighs 225,282 tonnes, is 16 decks high and nearly 4 football fields long, making it the largest cruise ship in the world – by 5 centimetres! Although it carries thousands of people you will not feel crowded on this ship.

Experience a brand new ship

Breathe in the smell of new furnishings, admire the view through shiny new glass and sit in brand spanking new spa chairs where you can enjoy the thought that no one has sat there before. Ask our cruising specialists about new ships that are coming out soon.

Cruise

Antarctica cruise

Be one of the few people who make it to Antarctica in their lifetime. There are many cruises available to Antarctica with expedition experts on-board to help you along your way. This isolated yet significant location will offer an experience that you will never forget and will find yourself remembering stories about it for years to come. This trip is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Antarctica

Visit the Galapagos

One of the world's premier nature travel destinations, the Galapagos Islands are full of wildlife including sea lions, whales and wild giant tortoises. Swim with the island's sea turtles or explore the beautiful volcanic landscape. This paradise has something for all nature lovers with its relaxing atmosphere, exceptional wild life and educational aspects of where Darwin's Theory started.

Cruise

Lawn party at sea

The grass is really greener when you're in the middle of the ocean. Enjoy a picnic with a glass of bubbles, feel the wind in your hair with the sun gazing down at you or read a book on the soft grass while you look out to the waves as you sail on by.

Celebrity Solstice is one ship that offers an on-board half-acre lawn which sits above deck. With its many amenities on-board including a sauna, gym, observation deck, jogging track, theatre, Martini and sunset bar, you will not be short of something to do!

Lawn at sea

Cruise down the Nile

If you have ever wanted to visit the pyramids, then this is the cruise for you. Spend your days visiting tombs and temples with the luxury and convenience of being able to go back to your cruise ship for a refreshing dip in between. A Nile river cruise can be hectic with all the amazing excursions and day trips that you will want to go on so make sure you plan your time carefully and organise what you want to do on your holiday.

Sail under the Golden Gate Bridge

What a view! Lots of people have seen it, driven and even walked across it but not everyone gets to experience sailing underneath it! See the bridge from a whole new angle and explore the states while you are there.

America
