Then this summer a cruise and stay holiday could be a good option for you!
Cruising may not be your first choice of holiday but we certainly think you should consider it, and here’s why:
Holidays to the Western Mediterranean are proving to be very popular again this summer, but one way to secure your place, escape the crowds and at great value too, is to go there on a cruise.
There are many cruise lines with huge luxury liners and amazing itineraries across the Mediterranean this summer, not only accommodating you in style, but at prices which we think may surprise you.
So, how about a nine night Travel Republic Barcelona and Med cruise holiday, starting with two nights in a hotel in Barcelona – great for city and beach, and then on to a seven night full board cruise on the Norwegian Epic, with all drinks included, plus flights to and from Barcelona, from just £899pp.
Surprised? You have to admit it, this price is similar to what you’d pay for an all inclusive holiday right? And with an all inclusive holiday you wouldn’t get to see all those different places.
During the cruise, the ship will visit Naples, perfect for seeing the incredible sights of Pompeii, Vesuvius or Capri. It then heads to Rome, for all those famous landmarks! To Livorno, for Pisa or Florence. Cannes, for beach, shopping and people-watching, and finally Marseille, for a beautiful taste of France – quite literally when it comes to the ports, as they have wonderful seafood restaurants!
But of course, you don’t have to disembark the ship, you can can simply choose to lie back and relax, surrounded by facilities which are second-to-none! Just like a hotel.
The Norwegian Epic is a holiday destination in itself and is perfect for couples or families.
With 16 Bars, 23 Restaurants, ten pin bowling, a spa, swimming pools, rock climbing and Las Vegas style shows, oh and did we mention the free all inclusive drinks packages currently available?*
Or, take a look at this ten night Venice Stay & Jewels of the Mediterranean cruise, also a cruise and stay holiday. Enjoy Venice for three nights in a hotel and then cruise around the beautiful Mediterranean destinations of Dubrovnik, Kusadasi on the Turkish coast, taking in the ruins at Ephesus, and finally Santorini and Katakolon in Greece. From just £699pp, including flights to and from Venice, hotel and a full board basis on the cruise.
So this may well be the year to consider a cruise for the first time – the perfect way to enjoy the Mediterranean from a different view point! You won’t be disappointed.
