Hello and welcome to CruiseHols.co.uk – your one stop guide for all things cruising.
Cruising has come a long way from the days of luxury travel only for the rich to where there is now a cruise line and a cruise ship to suit everybody’s taste.
If you are a seasoned cruiser, use our website to find a new cruise line or a new destination to enjoy or if you are brand new to cruising, use our website to make sure you pick the right line and the right ship for you.
Of course for most of us we have tried a few cruise lines or a few different ships and just want to know what else is on offer.
There is something special about a cruise holiday as it is a truly unique experience. For many traveling is a tiring experience, fully of queuing and waiting in lines and the chance to see new places and new sites can often leave you tired and in need of another holiday when you get home.
Cruising is the opposite. You get to visit a new place almost every day, with most cruise holiday visiting multiple countries and with your hotel following you along on your journey, you never need to repack, travel and then pack again.
From the sun of the Caribbean and Mediterranean to the beauty of Alaska and the Norwegian Fjords and from the culture of Northern Europe to the excitement of crossing the Atlantic, no matter where you want to go to on a cruise, we have all the information you need.
All cruise line swill offer you the chance to book excursions through them, but these are often overpriced and frustrating as there are so many people on the excursion with that every where becomes crowded and a hassle but thankfully the savvy cruiser knows that you can book shore excursions online before you go and not only save money but more often than not you are in a much smaller group to really make the most of your visits to ports around the globe.

Why Choose A Cruise Holiday?
If you are new to the wonderful world of cruising, welcome, but where have you been?
The joy of cruising is one that just keeps giving as you have all of the excitement of the unknown in the build up to your holiday, lots of excitement and fun whilst on holiday and then when you get back home, you have all of the great memories to fondly look back on for years to come.
Whilst a lot of holidays could have the same said about them, there is always something special about a holiday onboard a cruise ship as you get so much more than any other type of holiday.
No matter if you usual type of getaway is a beach holiday, a lakes and mountains holiday or a city break, you will more than likely wake up in the same hotel in the same place and set of exploring in the same way before coming back again to the same place later that day.
On a cruise holiday you have a luxury resort which acts as your hotel for your time away and it is also your holiday resort whilst at sea.
Full of a choice of bars, entertainment, theatres, musicians, restaurants, cafes, activities and more, your cruise ship offers all that you could hope for from a beach resort in the Caribbean or from a great city centre.
Of course it is also your mode of transport, so whilst you wake up in the same bed, the view from your balcony will be different every day.
Some days you will wake up with nothing but the open ocean surrounding you and this is your chance to spend the day relaxing around the pool or taking part in the many onboard activities. This is basically the same as a beach holiday or a resort holiday but then you wake up the next day and you are docked in an incredible city, tourist town or on a beautiful island and this is like a city break where you can walk off of the ship and simply set of exploring on foot and take in all of culture, sights and smells.
On many cruises, such as those going to the Norwegian Fjords, you can also have those days when you are cruising past mountains, waterfalls and glaciers and this is like a lakes and mountains holiday but unlike a trip to the alps where you have the same view, on a cruise holiday you go from one mountain to the next and from one waterfall to the next.
