This section is for ocean cruising holidays and vacations aboard ships and liners sailing the world's oceans and seas. These will offer pleasure voyages aboard large ships with holiday amenities provided as part of the experience and ports of call along the way to visit tourist destinations. The section covers closed-loop cruises where the ports of call may be in a specified region; point-to-point line voyages aboard more traditional ocean liners (where transportation to start and/or end points may be provided by separate means); as well as cruises to nowhere where the ship makes round trips without including any ports of call.
The section is for general cruising holidays which aim to provide relaxation and recreation aboard, and general tourism and sightseeing ashore – if you're looking for a cruise that features a specific activity or focuses on a particular interest then take a look at our themed cruises section.
If you're short of time, but would like a cruise experience, our short and mini-cruise section is also worth a look.
