The cruise market continues to grow at a pace, with more ships than ever before, the choice can be bewildering. At Amity Travel we have our very own cruise expert; Elaine Puddicombe who has amassed a serious amount of knowledge thanks to over 30 years of selling to the public as well as being a battle hardened cruise enthusiast herself. So whatever type of cruise you may be thinking of taking, you can be sure of getting the right advice and help at Amity Travel.
And to get you started, we have come up with a few suggestions, to help you along the way.
If you have a special occasion coming up and are looking for a romantic break, Princess Cruises could be an option for you. It owned the original Love Boat and still clings to the notion that cruising is the ultimate in romance and often helps you celebrate those “special” occasions on board. With a choice of midsized and larger ships, Princess turns on the charm with alfresco balcony dinners for two, adults-only sun decks with spa-like atmospheres and several alternative dining venues perfect for date night.
Amity Travel believe that Holland America is a great choice for those that like a slower pace of life, Its midsize ships appeal to mature travellers with their cruise traditions like afternoon tea, whilst offering more modern interests such as cooking and technology classes. In addition, its wide range of itineraries from family-friendly one-week sailings to weeks-long exotic journeys and world cruises – appeal to retirees looking for multigenerational trips or long vacations to new places.
Disney has to be up there for one for the children! It’s no surprise that Disney leads the pack for introducing the little ones to cruising. Even their ships are designed with bows and swirls to make them even more enchanting for the younger passenger. Its ships’ offer nurseries for babes as young as three months, themed play-spaces for pre-schoolers and school-age kids, plenty of Disney character interaction (including dress-up princess teas and pirate parties), and cabins that cater to families with split baths (with tubs), extra berths, a room-diving curtain and childproof balcony locks
If you have not cruised before, MSC Cruises might be an option for you. MSC cruises are known for their deals and amazing on-board savings. From med-only-summer offers to fly-cruise-offers you won’t find it difficult to pick one that fits in with what you’re looking for.
Cruising appeals to a much broader audience today than ever before, with Carnival definitely catering for the younger market, thanks to their wide ranging choice of entertainment, including fun pool games, a variety of live music performances, packed bars, and elaborate splashy production shows. The line is constantly tweaking or adding to its entertainment options; for example, Carnival Liberty is bringing enhanced comedy shows, new watering holes and superior D.J.’s on-board.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg; we have not even mentioned River or Adventure cruising or good old fashioned transatlantic crossings with Cunard. So why not pick up the phone and call Amity Travel today, and start your cruising adventure.
