    Cruises in the Mediterranean >

    Probably one of the most exciting cruise destinations in the world, the Mediterranean Cruises are for those looking to explore fascinating ancient cities while resting up on the sparkling calm Mediterranean sea in-between stops.  Of course the med is not short of beaches, and being virtually an enormous lake the calm seas make for a refreshing dip in the blistering summer sunshine. With so many fascinating destinations the cruise options are endless so you can generally break a Mediterranean Cruise route into two destinations, the East of the Med and the west of the Med. We've highlighted some of the top cruise destinations and pointed out a few must see's.

    Cruises in Dubai >

    A relatively new idea, Cruising in Dubai offers great value for money if all you want is to get out to the sunshine and enjoy the sights.  Dubai itself can be quite expensive to stay in a hotel for a week, as well as fairly expensive to eat out, so a cruise offers you a leisurely pace of Dubai holiday with your hotel included in the price as well as most meals included. This means you can splash out on a posh restaurant or two in Dubai and take in a few activities once you are there.  It's easy enough to head to the beach and drink in that Vitamin D from the incredible sunshine.  The added benefit of a cruise is of course you get to visit a few other destinations, which is quite handy as there's only so much you can do in Dubai - you'll have the opportunity to see the other big Arabian tourist attractions of Abu Dhabi and Oman. See our Dubai Cruise overview for more info.

    Cruises in the Far East >

    By taking a cruise in the Far East you'll be saving yourself flight after flight if you attempted to visit all these Far East destinations on land. So save yourself all that check in time and waiting around, and wait around on deck watching the splendid views with a cocktail in hand instead! It's a bit of a trek to the Far East by anyone's standards, so often holiday makers would rather see several destinations rather than a trip to just one country meaning they would need to keep making that trek again and again. The Cruise Lines have set up some seriously great Itineraries to get the very best sights in for your enjoyment. We've picked out a few of the best Far East Cruise options and highlighted the main ports of Call to help you with your planning.

    Cruises in the Indian Ocean >

    If you are thinking of taking a cruise across the idyllic Indian Ocean, then you'll be floating across some of the deepest blue ocean on the planet. And right out in the middle of this ocean you'll find busy little islands of markets, old colonial towns, huge green palms and soft deep white sandy beaches. This is probably one of the most laid back and relaxing cruises you can take, with a few large sea journeys between islands allowing you to soak up the cruise atmosphere and be spoilt for choice with the ships all inclusive menus and restaurants, as well as theatre shows, cinemas, casinos, swimming pools and cocktail parties.

    Cruises in the South Pacific >

The experience of a lifetime and all securely viewed from your toasty warm cabin if you choose!
