Which is the Best Cruise Destination?
The Caribbean is the most popular cruise destination in the world, the Caribbean sees cruise ships operating all year round in the region.
Alaska is the place to visit if you want breathtaking scenery, wildlife and spectacular glaciers
The Mediterranean Cruise is one of the best and easiest to visit many of the countries in southern Europe
On an Australasia cruise you can see Sydney’s iconic landmarks, the amaing South Island in New Zealand as well as other ports like Noumea (New Caledonia), Port Vila (Vanuatu), and Port Denarau (Fiji)
Get The Right Cabin At The Right Price
While most rooms at a hotel in the same category are roughly equal, the same certainly can not be said about cabins on cruise lines.
The first thing to consider is what type of cabin to choose, Inside, outside, with balcony suite, etc.
Which deck do you want to be on? The cost of the same type of cabin is likely to increase on each higher deck on which the cabin is available.
Which part of the ship do you want to be on? Bow (front), midship (middle) or stern (back). Being located at the front of the ship may sound like a ‘Titantic’ romantic idea, but will not be so pleasant if you have rough seas with waves crashing into your windows all night long.
On some cruises, starboard (the right side of a ship as seen by someone who is looking towards the front) or port it is important to get the best views of the coastline from your cabin.
There is often a snobbery value on cruises, with passengers looked down upon if they are residing in a low deck cabin. However, if you suffer from seasickness, then a lower cabin in the middle of the ship is exactly where you want to be.
We will use our expertise and experience as a Cardiff cruise travel agency to find the best cabin on the appropriate cruise to meet your individual requirements. We will have a well-informed conversation, establishing your desires and preferences.
Which Cruise Line To Choose?
We deal with all the main cruise lines such as P&O Cruises, Cunard Line, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Fred Olsen, Seabourn, Silversea and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
On the face of it, the 6-star cruise lines such as Seabourn, Silversea or Regent Seven Seas Cruises are much more expensive, but they offer many items that have to be paid for on other cruise lines such as drinks, tips, free-style dining and shore excursions. As luxury cruise travel agents in Cardiff, we will give you a complete picture of what your best options are before you decide on a cruise.
We like to have face to face conversations with our cruise passengers in the Cardiff area. You can pop into our Cardiff Cruise Travel Agents office, we can come to your home or we can meet in a convenient coffee shop or wine bar – whatever suits you best.
We can not only find the ideal cruise for you, we also save you time and money, as well as adding perks, such as on-board spending money, cabin upgrades or free WIFI
Getting Married on a Cruise
