With the rise in demand for cruise holidays, and the volume of new ships due to increase in the coming months, what better time to have another #HolidayChat centered around cruising?
We invited our blogging cruise expert Jamie from Explore With Ed to host and chat all things ships! Be sure to check out Jamie’s blog and Instagram for lots of cruise inspo and tips, plus some amazing photography.
A1 - I have! It was one of our favourite holidays getting to see so many new places each day. #HolidayChat— April (@aprileveryday) March 20, 2019
Q1) Yes cruise number 16 is in 42 days time #HolidayChat— Paul and Carole Love to Travel (@paulandcarole) March 20, 2019
A2: I’ve always been sceptical about cruises as I like the freedom to explore and dine on local cuisine without feeling restricted. I’d always thought of them as an older persons holiday to be honest. One day I will try for myself I’m sure. #holidaychat— Jaz (@Jaz_Butterfly) March 20, 2019
Q1) Yes many and consider them to be the best way to travel and explore different destinations.— firstinitialsea - Claire (@firstinitialsea) March 20, 2019
Yes!!!! We started cruising in 2014 - 15 cruises later we haven’t done a land holiday since!— Gavin & Luke (@HolidaysAtSea) March 20, 2019
World cruise for like a year!!— Nikki Barrett (@niknak_b) March 20, 2019
There is only one type of cruise that I would go on and that would be an expedition type cruise, to somewhere I wouldn't be able to go otherwise. I'm thinking Arctic and Antarctic. Can I go now please? #HolidayChat— Zoe Homes (@Splodz) March 20, 2019
A2 - i would love to cruise around the caribbean. There's just too many islands to see and i don't know which one to choose first, so that'd tick off a few haha! Or Antarctica! #HolidayChat— April (@aprileveryday) March 20, 2019
A2 Pacific islands and New Zealand yet to get to that part of the world! @icelollyholiday— Paul and Carole Love to Travel (@paulandcarole) March 20, 2019
I really want to visit Alaska with Princess Cruises - I'm a travel agent and have sent a few people. It looks amazing!— Lynsey || One More Slice (@one_more_slice) March 20, 2019
Oooh yes, a gin bar, bigger pools and a zip line that went from stern to bow.— firstinitialsea - Claire (@firstinitialsea) March 20, 2019
@icelollyholiday A3) #HolidayChat #Mythos on draft as the signature beer would be a must for me, whilst there would be many Greek delicacies at the buffet, there would be a pool on deck and a glass bottom viewing area, with satellite TV so I can watch my beloved #Panathinaikos— Friends Of Pefkos (@friendsofpefkos) March 20, 2019
A3: A wetherspoons and a greggs... Just kidding, or am I— Emma (@emmacruises) March 20, 2019
A3 - a huge garden area with a huge pool (cruise pools are too small for me haha) and some decent cheaper restaurant options, but other than that modern cruise ships have SO much already that i enjoy! #HolidayChat— April (@aprileveryday) March 20, 2019
I have to admit I was very tempted to book the @backstreetboys cruise to relive my youth! If we could get David Beckham on there too that would be ideal! No escaping if we’re on the water #holidaychat— Jaz (@Jaz_Butterfly) March 20, 2019
I don’t even need to go on holiday to visit our favourite - Barafundle Bay in Pembrokeshire - Pic: GRAHAM BELL/VISITBRITAIN RM pic.twitter.com/3XS608XsoD— Gavin & Luke (@HolidaysAtSea) March 20, 2019
