Cruising has never been so popular, and as more and more new cruise ships enter service, cruise lines are looking for different ways to attract potential cruisers. One way of doing this is to offer a wide range of types of cruise from mini cruises to round the world cruises.
The duration of mini cruises tends to be one to four nights. For instance many cruise lines offer what is known as taster cruises, these types of cruise are designed to get people into cruising on a budget that won’t break the bank. The more traditional cruise types tend to last for a week, ten nights or two weeks.
Transatlantic cruises are very popular and from the UK they will typically sail from Southampton heading west to New York with the main carrier being Cunard’s, Queen Mary 2.
Back to back cruises, cruises where two individual one week cruises are added together, are another way to capture great cruise deals, as are cruises where ships sail between seasonal bases these types of cruise are known as repositioning or reposition cruises.
Cruise lines such as Ocean Village Cruises and Island Cruises offer stay and cruise holidays. You can get the best of both worlds by taking a holiday in a hotel for a week before setting out to sea on your cruise. Just like in the hotel business, a few cruise lines offer all inclusive cruises this types of cruise are normally, though not exclusively run by the very expensive five star cruise lines.
Some of the more popular cruise lines offer round the world cruises. UK-based world cruises tend to depart from Southampton and travel the world often visiting the likes of Australia, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Sydney and the Caribbean among the numerous ports on offer.
