When it comes to cruises, there’s something out there for everyone – whatever floats your boat! Get the most out of your holiday overseas with our guide to the top 5 cruises . We’ll help you experience the best the world has to offer.
1. The party cruise (Greece)
As a collection of dozens of islands, Greece is perfect for cruises, and this one’s livelier than most. You’ll get dropped off at a different port each evening, before the ship departs again sometime after 2am. It docks again at 11am the next morning, so you can spend the day on the beach, recovering, before starting again!
2. The epic river cruise (China)
Most tourists visiting China head for the cities, so why not do something different and explore the magnificent Yangzi River? Marvel at the incredible mountain gorges and beautiful freshwater dolphins from the comfort of your own private balcony.
3. The classic cruise (Florida and the Bahamas)
Everything you always thought a cruise should have – spas, casinos, nightclubs, restaurants… and stunning scenery. Whether you’ll want to kick back on the boat, or take the opportunity to explore the beautiful locations (such as Key West), you can’t beat a classic cruise.
4. The adventure cruise (Fiji)
For many holidaymakers, a cruise trip is all about relaxing and unwinding – but you can make it as active as you want to. How about touring Fijian islands, with opportunities for snorkelling, kayaking, mountain biking and diving?

5. The quaint, English cruise (UK)
If plush opulence and the vast ocean don’t appeal, how about driving your own (hired) traditional canal boat through the heart of England? It’s a bit like mixing the cosiness of camping with the variety of a normal cruise. And if you get seasick, you’ll only be a few metres from land!
Whichever type of trip suits you best, don’t forget to make sure you’ve got cruise travel insurance. So you can unwind properly, and enjoy your cruise…
