What Are The Different Types Of Cruise Deals

There are many different variations, with something for everyone. It is not as simple as, sail to your destination, explore said destination, sail to the next destination, rinse and repeat. Cruise deals offer lots of extras on top of your package, such as hotel stays, vouchers, flights, drinks included, tickets to special events or even themed cruises.

Cruise and Stay Packages

Most cruise lines offer a cruise and stay option, where you can combine a cruise with a hotel stay in a particular destination. It's the best of both worlds, with a cruise holiday and a regular holiday rolled into one. You might like to stay a night or two in a destination of your choice, or decide on a longer stay making this a holiday to remember. Enjoy the best of both worlds with all that a cruise has to offer, before finishing your holiday with an extended stay in one place. The top three ports of call have been revealed as Barcelona, Venice and New York, with the combination of Barcelona, with the lure of the glittering Mediterranean coastline, proving the most popular.

MSC Cruises offer a varied choice of cruise and stay packages including seven night stays in a holiday resort of your choosing. For example, you can choose a two week Canary Island cruise plus a seven night stay in either Gran Canaria or Tenerife. Cunard offers transatlantic cruises from Southampton to New York which include a three night stay in The Big Apple. With no stops along the way, this options suits those who prefer spending more time at sea and all that a cruise has to offer.

Cruisetour Packages

A cruisetour package is just like a cruise and stay package, only better. In that, you get to stay in more than one destination. These include longer stays as well as on land travel to non-coastal destinations. Ideal for visiting destinations that bit further from the coast or that don't suit one night stays. Excursions and activities are also on offer during your stay.

Princess Cruises offer a wide choice of cruisetour packages including Europe, America, Australia, Canada and South America. A popular choice is the Ring of Kerry tour offering a four night stay taking in Limerick, Cork and Kerry after which you cruise from Southampton to Paris, the Channel Islands and more.

Adventure & Activity Cruises

Walking cruises are a firm favourite with those who enjoy gentle exercise.
