Cruise and Stay although of current coinage isn’t new to the cruise world, People generally infer cruising as sailing away at sunset and staying isn’t a part of cruising unless it means a stay on the ship or the ports it visits. Cruise and stay programmes are contrived for people who are wary of being stuck on the ship for long durations. Any cruise can be converted to a cruise and stay holiday either by the tourist, or by buying a packaged option from the line, or through a travel agent. The internet is inundated with a plethora of such deals.
In order to help you decide as to which of the thousands of cruise and stay holidays would be ideal for you, follow some simple rules. Firstly decide on when you can go on holiday to narrow down your search to deals available at that time. Next decide on the destination amongst the most popular ones being the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Nile and Alaska. Depending on your budget, decide on where to stay initially – hotel or ship. This allows you to experience life aboard a ship and at the same time doesn’t deprive you of your normal holiday. In addition, this twin offer definitely costs less than two separate holidays.
Cruise and stay are a class apart w r t the range of destinations one can visit on a holiday. One can be visiting a different country almost every day; and at the same time your ‘floating hotel’ provides you a perfect place to relax and sunbather, use the gym, watch movies, dance or enjoy roulette. Mediterranean cruises are full of adventure. One can catch the glamour of the French and Italian Riviera, visit Rome, and breathlessly zoom on to Cote d’azur, hit Barcelona and more. Torn between the East and West Mediterranean – no worries! Opt for a tempting combination of sailings between Crete and Majorca.
