3 reasons to book a cruise & tour holiday 

When booking a cruise, many people opt for a simple cruise only deal. But are they missing out on the joys of exploring further afield on a cruise & tour package?

Incorporating a land tour add-on to your cruise is a great way to explore a destination more deeply so you can really tick it off your bucket list.

Why are cruise and tour packages so popular?

They’re completely organised for you

There are people who love to plan their cruise holiday from beginning to end and then there are others who find it difficult to know where to start, unsure whether they’ll be missing out on the best places to visit and daunted by the planning process..

Whichever camp you sit in, a package cruise and tour holiday will take away any stress that comes with planning your next cruise. Every element has been carefully selected to create the perfect itinerary so that you can really get the most out of your holiday. Take this 14 night Canadian Rockies Cruise Holiday for example…the cruise itself, all flights, transfers, hotels and escorted tours have been hand picked to make sure they fit perfectly together so that you get to see the very best of the region.

They’re risk free

With everything that’s been going on in the world, we’re all a little more cautious about booking a holiday right now so it’s important to make sure that when booking any trip, it’s covered if anything should go wrong.

Like this All-Inclusive 15 night West Coast USA Adventure Cruise, incorporating a stay in Las Vegas and San Francisco, followed by a seven night cruise on the brand new Discovery Princess down the coast of Mexico, our cruise and tour package holidays are fully covered by both ATOL (Air Travel Organiser’s License) & ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents). This means you’re fully protected if any travel plans such as your cruise or flights don’t go ahead as planned or need changing.

Part of the joy of travel is enjoying the unexpected – but no one wants to spend their holiday worrying about having to deal with last minute changes to your itinerary – perhaps caused by factors out of your control.

On a Cruise and Tour package, you can relax, knowing that behind the scenes, any such changes are being dealt with for you. So you can simply get on and enjoy your holiday.

They’re great value for money

There is a common misconception that if you arrange every part of your holiday yourself, you’ll save money. Well, we hate to break it to you but this isn’t always the case. All the components within a cruise and tour package are put together by companies who have exclusive rates with all of the travel providers.

If you added every item included in this 24 night Grand Tour of The USA & The Caribbean cruise package, which visits New York, Memphis, New Orleans along with a 14 night Caribbean cruise on board the brand new Enchanted Princess, you may soon realise you’ll never be able to beat that price. So it’s definitely worth doing your calculations before you go ahead and book your next cruise holiday as you could be saving a fortune by choosing a package cruise holiday instead. is one of the UK’s largest specialist cruise travel agencies offering the widest range of cruise holidays online.
