Choose from a pre or post-cruise stay in a destination of your choice, at the hotel of your choice. From the laid back rhythm of the Caribbean, to the cultural richness of the Mediterranean and many, many more; the wide range of options give you the opportunity to experience the places you’ve always dreamed of.

Many cruise and stay holidays will also allow you to choose the number of nights you'd like to stay over, for example a week in the Caribbean or 2 nights in New York. Fly out to your destination and spend some time there first before cruising, or vice versa. It’s really up to you.

The flexibility that cruise and stay holidays offer makes them popular with first time and experienced cruisers alike. First time cruisers enjoy all the pleasures and luxury a cruise liner offers, whilst being able to delve deeper into their chosen destination with a stay-over. Experienced cruisers also enjoy the flexibility of being able to extend their holiday by spending several days ashore to get the most out of their cruise experience.

Relax on deck

With a tantalising array of cuisine, lots of entertainment to choose from, spa treatments and much more besides, you can sit back, relax and feel all your troubles melt away.

Explore the destinations

Experience the feast for the senses that await you at your destination. Kick back and relax out on the beach, or taste the spirit of adventure exploring your destinations with cruise and stay.

Stress-free travel

Forget lugging your baggage from place to place, stressing about timetables and dealing with the hassle of driving abroad: cruises are one of the most convenient, stress-free forms of travel.

Cruises are becoming more and more popular every year with an estimated 1.25 million Britons holidaying at sea last year. Part of the appeal is the fact that cruise and stay holidays include so many elements - like food and entertainment - that other land-based holidays do not provide; making them excellent value for money.

The choice that cruise and stay holidays offer also gives them huge appeal. If chilling out with a good book on deck or on the beach is your idea of heaven, then an Island cruise may be ideal for you. Those with a thirst for adventure will love getting under the skin of destinations like South America, whilst those with a desire for the ultimate in luxury cruising may be more at home on an Azamara cruise.

Whatever your holiday tastes with cruise ships in all shapes, sizes and styles there really is something for everyone.
