Discovering new wonders with luxury cruise lines

Print Friendly

What better way to discover a few of the world’s most wondrous sights than on a luxurious cruise?

Visit places you’ve only dreamed of and enjoy exploring other countries and exciting destinations while someone else takes care of your every need.

Luxury cruises are an incredibly popular choice when it comes to senior holidays – and there’s little question why. From excellent on-board entertainment to convenient, high quality dining, a cruise is the perfect way to take all of the hard work out of holidays – leaving you with plenty of time to simply relax and enjoy every minute.

Choosing your luxury cruise

When picking a luxury cruise, you’ll be thinking about more than the exotic destinations you’ll be visiting, there’s also the cruise line’s reputation and facilities to bear in mind. Sites like Cruise Critics could help you find out which lines offer exactly the kind of amenities you’re looking for. Comparison sites like Gocompare are also good for drilling down into the kind of cruise deals that are on offer and choosing one based on factors such as price, suitability of dates or the rating of the ship.

Another way to compare different cruise lines is to sign up to a site like Cruise Ships, which allows you to match a variety of lines to your requirements. It also has some fun features for any keen cruisers – you can make your own profile that lets you create a timeline of past and future trips and your own personal map of everywhere you’ve already been. You can also have a look at our cruise page for some great deals with world-class cruise lines available today.

For some more general advice on finding out which cruise is the best for you, have a read of the Telegraph’s guide to choosing the right ship. It has advice perfect for whether you’re travelling solo, with a companion or even with the younger members of your family. There’s more useful information to be found from the team at Travel Luxe, who’ve put together a comprehensive article about picking a luxury cruise.

Cherry picking luxury cruise lines

If you’re looking for an elegant and relaxing experience on a high quality ship, P&O Cruises could have just the package to suit you. With roots stretching all the way back to 1837, it’s had plenty of time to perfect its holidays and it manages to bring the comforts of cosmopolitan Britain to even the most exotic of locations

Another luxury cruise line that’s certain to leave you feeling pampered is Cunard. Its magnificent ocean liners and splendid ship facilities ensure that you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped onto the set of a glamorous film. That said, comfort is also high on the agenda and you can expect to feel entirely at home while enjoying state of the art facilities like a 3D Cinema, planetarium and a superb spa.

No matter what your preference, you’re sure to find the luxury cruise that complements it perfectly once you start looking.
