Indulgence and style are the two words that can best describe the experience of splashing out on a cruise. For those who enjoy being pampered and having a truly relaxing holiday, there are many Thomas Cook cruises that will take the traveller back to the glory days of cruise liner travel but also satisfy the last word in contemporary amenities.
The Celebrity Eclipse is described as ‘the epitome of modern luxury’ and can transport its passengers to all corners of the world. For those who wish to escape the cold and snow of the Northern hemisphere winter, a Caribbean cruise on this liner in December might prove to be the ideal venue. The ship boasts four restaurants among its many facilities and even a Lawn Club that mimics the refined atmosphere of a country club.
Celebrity Cruises have recently been nominated by Cruise International Magazine in their 2012 shortlist of well-being excellence – making them an obvious choice for those looking for a luxury trip this year.
Alternatively some passengers might enjoy the razzmatazz of a cruise on board the Norwegian Epic. This ship can hold up to 4,000 passengers and promises a Vegas–like experience with 20 restaurants and world-class entertainment. Those who wish to enjoy the treat of a lifetime might even wish to book a special suite with butler service.
Those wanting to travel with their family can either enjoy the ‘Norwegian Epic’ or take the family for a cruise on the Thomson Dream. A trip to the Caribbean in December is a great way to get some winter sun and to experience the wonderful culture around some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
Combine this excitement with the joy of having traversed the Atlantic aboard the last word in sophisticated elegance complete with activities provided for the whole family and this might prove to be the ultimate festive treat.
The weather across the UK in 2012 has proved to be disastrous and one of the few anticipatory joys could well be a trip on the Island Escape in 2013.
These cruises explore the many islands in the Mediterranean and promise to give the sun-seeking passenger the opportunity to unwind and relax in glorious sunshine whilst recovering from the wet and gloomy weather back home.
The atmosphere aboard one of these liners is definitely informal; the passengers’ wishes are the crew’s command.
