Cruising with your local specialist

If you are looking to take a cruise for your next holiday, there has never been a better time to book. The cruise market is one of the fastest growing areas of the travel industry; and whilst you may expect this to mean high prices due to high demand! Not in this instance, as the industry has been building ships at a rate of knots never seen before, with each new cruise liner claiming to be bigger and better than the one before. P&O Cruises have announced that it will expand its fleet with a 141,000-tonne cruise ship, scheduled to enter service in March 2015. The as-yet-unnamed 3,611-passenger vessel will be the largest in the P&O Cruises fleet, as well as the largest cruise ship built specifically for the British market.
This has meant that despite the market growth there is still a massive amount of capacity to fill and the only way to do this is by offering deals to good to miss. Not wanting to miss out on their share of the market, Amity World Travel have employed their very own Cruise Specialist in Elaine Puddicombe, Elaine has over 30 years in the Travel Industry, much of which has been selling to the cruise sector.
With such a wide choice of cruise options it is easy to tie yourself up in knots trying to make the right decision and this is where it pays to speak to an expert such as Elaine who can help point you in the right direction, giving you clear choices and making sure you are looking at only the cruises that fit with your requirements.

So many new ships has bought with it the challenge to find worthwhile new destinations to visit; The Far East and Australasia seem to be winning this one with many operators now running services between the likes of Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and Auckland, making for a great addition to any planned trip down under. Closer to home the Middle East has some great winter sun itineraries, taking in the ports of Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, Bahrain and Khasab amongst others, and with prices as low as £700 for a 7 night cruise it all makes for a great alternative to your more traditional Dubai Beach holiday. For those who are looking to do something a little different, adventure cruising is a great option with a diverse choice, the Polar bears in Canada are proving very popular and the all inclusive cruising offered by Silverseas makes it a very cost effective way of witnessing the Polar Bears in their natural habitat. If an Arctic experience is a bit too chilly there is plenty to offer in warmer climes, such as a Polynesian experience where you will discover the culture of these beautiful South Pacific islands or why not retrace the adventurous footsteps of those first explorers to the lost paradise of Papua New Guinea.
Cost is always going to be a major factor and with the recent changes that have been made in the Cruise industry and the way they pay agents it means that your local agent ‘Amity World Travel’ can now compete with the web based operators and call centres allowing clients the chance to have a very personal experience when booking their cruise at a highly competitive price.
With so much choice it is easy to get lost in the myriad of cruise companies and offers, so whether you’re looking to book your first cruise or your 50th your first port of call should be Amity World Travel, where we will endeavour to find the perfect cruise for you.
