Relaxed beach holidays
Looking to relax and unwind? Our top destinations for the ultimate relaxed beach holiday include the Caribbean and Canary Islands.
Not sure where to start? To help find the right cruise for you, we’ve listed the main factors to consider.
Time of year
You might have a specific date in mind for going away – like the summer holidays or half-term – so a good starting point is to search for cruises available on your desired dates. If you’re going abroad for a specific event, or if you’re seeking a natural phenomenon like the Northern Lights or Midnight Sun in Norway, you’ll be looking at going abroad at a specific time of the year.
While some regions follow a four seasons cycle, others offer nearly constant warmth and sunny skies. If you're flexible with weather conditions, you can pick up some great deals during the less popular times of year such as winter. So, if you don’t need endless sunshine, autumn and winter won’t just be the cheapest seasons, they could even be the best time for you to travel.
The good news is that as incredible entertainment, accommodation, meals are all included in your holiday price, a cruise offers exceptional value for money – especially when you compare this to a land-based holiday. Our Early Saver prices, available on selected holidays offer great value when you book your holiday early.
All of our cruise holidays can be as exciting or relaxed as you like.
