The Cream of the Cruises; Some Prefer Fun in the Sun, While Others Prefer a More Exclusive Holiday Experience. If You Are Struggling to Make Up Your Mind, Browse through Our Bestselling Cruises for Vacation Inspiration; Advertisement Special


With so many different types of holiday on offer, it can be difficult to decide where to go.Take inspiration from our four bestselling cruises to make your decision that little bit easier; after all, hundreds of happy customers cannot be wrong.

If it is sun, sea and sand you are after, then an all-inclusive Mediterranean escape with Island Cruises is just the ticket. You'll spend seven nights at a Majorca hotel before embarking on the Island Escape for a further seven nights cruising the Mediterranean.

The best part is that all your drinks, meals and gratuities are included, so once you've booked, you won't have to pay for a thing either ashore or on board! Majorca provides the ideal destination for relaxation: sunny beaches are the main attraction for most visitors and the island has them in abundance. For a more exclusive Mediterranean getaway, choose a cruise on Oceania's five-star Marina. Two nights in Athens provides the perfect start.

You can marvel at the magnificent Acropolis, sample the outstanding local cuisine or simply choose to relax before your sumptuous cruise taking in the mesmerising beauty of the Greek islands.

Your adventure concludes with an overnight stay on board in Venice. An engineering marvel, characterised by charming canals, gondolas, marble churches, wonderful piazzas and fabulous culture, Venice is a must-see that offers the perfect opportunity to unwind.

GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL

IF YOU choose to visit the faraway lands of Australia and Indonesia on board the mv Discovery, few itineraries will be able to compete with this exotic blend. We've put together a wonderful package that begins with three nights in Sydney, where you can choose to soak up the sun on the world-famous city beaches of Bondi and Manly and enjoy unparalleled views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge before embarking on the mv Discovery for 21 nights. As you cruise up the east coast of Australia, you'll have wonderful opportunities to explore the unspoilt beauty of the Whitsunday Islands and the natural wonder that is the Great Barrier Reef.

Stunning Indonesia boasts aquamarine water, tropical islands, powder-white beaches galore and a vibrant culture. Your journey concludes in cosmopolitan Singapore.

FOLLOWING IN DARWIN'S FOOTSTEPS

IF YOU have a passion for flora and fauna, why not set sail for the Galapagos Islands? Nowhere else in the world can you get this close to such a vast array of wildlife concentrated in a small location: penguins can be seen only feet away from flamingos, and giant tortoises amble freely among the sea lions of the island.

The wonderful zoology of these magical islands helped Charles Darwin to form the theory of evolution. You'll take in this unrivalled wildlife adventure on board Celebrity Cruises' specialist exploration ship, the Celebrity Xpedition.There are just 92 guests on board. Onshore excursions are in small groups led by highly experienced guides, while daily naturalist-led briefings prepare you for the creatures encountered on each of these unique islands.

Enjoy two nights in Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital city. This beautiful place with its strong European influences offers terrific dining, shopping and, of course, tango-dancing options. Then embark on the Oceania Insignia for your stunning 12 night cruise. On board you'll be treated to terrific ports in Uruguay before arriving at Brazil's spectacular Atlantic Coast.

With powdery white-sand beaches lined with palm trees stretching for thousands of kilometres, this coastline is characterised by tropical islands and enchanting towns as you cruise to Rio de Janeiro. Against the backdrop of steaming tropical jungles, gorgeous sand beaches and a constant samba beat, be sure to take in the famous Copacabana and visit the statue of Christ the Redeemer during your stay here.
