Beginner Cruises

Cruises are often known as floating paradises, in which you can choose to join in calm, relaxing activities, just relax, be part of the excitement of the onboard facilities or opt out and spend time doing what you like to do. A cruise can give you all the same things a beautiful resort can give you except on a cruise you pretty much get looked after 24 hours a day.

If you are a cruise beginner then you may have questions like:

Will I get bored? – No you won’t as there is more than enough activity going on onboard your cruise ship to keep you fully entertained if you so wish.

What can I do on a cruise ship? – You can immerse yourself in refined cuisine cooked by professional chefs, then work it off in one of the exercise/dance classes or join in the variety of sports on offer. Some cruise ships have golf simulators, rock climbing walls and jogging tracks! As the night falls you can enjoy numerous onboard lounges, watch a Broadway Style production in the theatre or chance lady luck in the casino.

Although a cruise offers you a complete holiday in itself, stopping at various ports of call mean that you can see more of a country than you probably would on a land based holiday. If you don’t want to go on an excursion then the variety of entertainment and amenities on board, mean you only have to stroll on deck to find your next experience, even on a Mini Cruise.

Suggestions for a beginners cruise would be a Mini cruise for 3/5 days.  This would give a perfect taster and insight as to what cruising is all about. There are lots of beginner cruise deals sailing from the UK from such ports as Southampton, Hull, Liverpool and Newcastle. These types of cruise deals will feature short sailings either round the UK and a number of very popular Mediterranean ports and involve no flying so you won’t have the hassle of airport security, check-in and luggage restrictions.

All of the above have fantastic facilities on board and between them have a wide range of beginner cruise deals. Browse all our cheap Beginner cruise deals now!
