Cruise Deals

Where would you prefer for Christmas….England, Canary Island or  a cruise round the Caribbean?

So I came across something really surprising today, if you are looking at going away over Christmas it is actually cheaper to go to the Caribbean than it is the Canary Islands, and I’m sure for a lot of people this beats staying in the UK if you’re after a bit of winter sun.

I’m sure as you are reading this you are thinking no the Canary Islands must be cheaper, the Caribbean is further afield as a much more inviting destination, whether you want pure white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters, or just to relax sitting on your balcony watching the sunset with your favourite cocktail

Would you rather have this?

Celebrity cruises has just released a special short cruise with a  2 night sailing on their award winning ship Eclipse.

 This is a perfect opportunity for new and old cruisers. It is a fantastic way to sample a new ship or cruise line, sail again if you love this ship or even if you just fancy a long weekend break.

The Celebrity Eclipse has sailed out of Southampton for the last few years and next year is no different. She has won many awards since her launch and only recently ‘best ship to sail out of the UK’  She perfectly combines the concept of Modern cruising for Celebrity, sleek lines, modern décor, fabulous food and quirky extras such as Qsine where you can order your food from Ipads, the Lawns where you can watch glass blowing and the exclusive Aqua Spa.

Last year I cruised with Azamara, being the sister company to Celebrity I knew I was in for a treat. My only worry was that there are only 2 ships in their fleet and carrying less than 800 passengers I was a little worried as I have only cruised on much larger ships

Worried I need not have been, everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the ship was beautiful. Yes it was smaller than I was used to but as both ships the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest have both been refurbished they looked brand new.
