Why Travel by Sea? Luxury on the High Seas

Posted August 7th, 2014

Thinking about taking a holiday? Cruising is one of the easiest and most convenient forms of transport around and the options of destinations are endless. From luxury river cruising in Europe to something closer to home, once you've done one, you'll understand what all the hype is about. 

Read our blog on why you should consider taking a cruise on your next holiday. 

Value for money

Cruising is becoming more popular than ever and it's not hard to see why! Cruises are great value for money and they allow people to visit world-wide destinations for much less than they might pay for a land-based holiday.

Once accommodation, food, roaming costs and transportation have been added on top of your flights, a holiday can become quite pricey. Cruises often come as a one-off cost which includes accommodation, on-board Wi-Fi and transportation all in the same price. Another bonus is that many ports are located in the centre of the destination you're visiting - meaning you can get dropped off right in the centre, avoiding additional transportation costs. Most cruises also have main meals included and selected beverages making it even more affordable!

After you have indulged at the buffet or finished that midnight snack, why not take part in one of the many leisure activities the cruise has on offer or take a quick visit to the fitness centre? Cruiseabout's luxury Europe River Cruises with Avalon Waterways include all main meals, entertainment, port charges and gratuities! Contact a cruising specialist today for more details or to view more of our latest deals.



Do you find it hard sleeping on a plane? Do you want to explore different countries without having to move and unpack between each destination? A cruise holiday allows you to have a decent night sleep during the entire journey and you only have to unpack once! No more rushing through airports and waiting in endless queues.

You won’t have to spend hours planning your trip before booking a cruise either. They come fully prepared with everything in one place and with staff ready to serve you. Our cruising specialists can cater to your travelling needs. Ask one of our cruising specialists about our Fly & Cruise packages if you are planning a cruise departing from overseas.



In need of a romantic getaway? Secluded beaches, spa services for two and dining with an ocean view are just some of the options available on a cruise. Enjoy the privacy and luxury of a cruise where you can do as much or as little as you want. Relax and rejuvenate or stay up and dance the night away!

What better way to spoil your loved one than taking a romantic river cruise through Europe?  Celebrate your nuptials or rekindle the romance as you sail past the beautiful and often historical sights.


The experts at Cruiseabout can recommend a cruise specifically to suit you. For more information on cruise holidays, contact a Cruise Specialist or call 0800 22 11 14.
