Event and themed cruises seem to becoming the new thing when it comes to cruising, cruise lines are constantly introducing new ideas to keep cruising exciting and innovative
Some cruise lines feature Celebrities, food heroes or dancers, some ensure they are in ports for some of the worlds most popular celebrations and events. Cunard have introduced a selection of special event sailings for 2018 that still are inkeeping with Cunards history and traditions of a first class traditional cruise line
There will be 5 sailings throughout the year and I would encourage to book early as these do usually sell out very quickly

This is a celebration of wine, calling at some of Europe’s finest wine destinations with ports such as Oporto and Lisbon in Portugal and Vigo in Spain. There will be bespoke shore excursions including a Douro river cruise , tastings at Colares winery and Cape Roca and the Galicia Trek and taste.
