Cruising is one of the most elegant ways to travel – it’s a way of seeing the world in absolute comfort. From evenings spent in cocktail dresses and tuxedos to waking the next day in a new country to explore, cruises are great ways of discovering new favourites and experiencing new things.
Cruises exist for more or less any destination you can imagine. Whether it’s the Mediterranean or the Caribbean you’ve got in mind, cruises offer a stress-free way of seeing everything the region has to offer. We found that researching the available excursions before you depart is the best way of deciding what trips are most suited to you. Also be sure to check the boat dress-code.
While everything is very casual during the day, at night things can be a little different. Most will have formal nights, so planning outfits ahead of time is crucial. Men, invest in a tuxedo or dark suit, and ladies, be sure to pack those gowns and cocktail dresses.
The amount of luggage you can bring with you depends on the type of cruise you’re about to depart on, too. For cruises that depart from your home country, you have a fairly open scope – but be sure to check the limitations before squeezing those five huge suitcases into the car. A fly cruise, however, means that you’re slightly limited by the amount of luggage that the airline transporting you to the port allows.
Start the adventure straight away
With this style of holiday, you fly out to meet the ship in the originating country. This means that you don’t have any wasted days at sea. By flying out to your starting destination, you can travel further, and reach further-flung places in much less time.
While you can organize your flights and cruises separately, the easier option is to book with a company like MSC cruises who offer fantastic fly cruise packages. These typically include your flights, cruise, transfers and something arguably even more important – peace of mind.
This offers a simple, yet luxurious way of traveling the world – it’s no more complicated than that, but is reason enough for why it’s fast becoming the cruise method of choice.
