All you need to know about Sail and Cruise Holidays

What is a cruise holiday?

A cruise holiday takes you around the world’s greatest destinations on board a cruise ship. A cruise ship is like a large floating resort, with all the comforts of a hotel and plenty of activities onboard. A cruise holiday is perfect for those looking to explore by land and sea.

What should I wear on a boat holiday?

What you pack for your boat tour or sailing holiday varies wildly between destinations. If you’re sailing in the Mediterranean, it’s best to wear light, quick-drying clothing and non-slip deck shoes. Be sure to pack your swimsuit, hat and sunglasses. If you’re cruising in Canada or Alaska, you’ll need warm layers including a water and windproof jacket for outdoor activities.

Where can I sail in the summer?

Some of the best destinations for summer sailing holidays include the French Riviera, the southern islands of Thailand, the Mediterranean coastline along Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Italy, and the Aegean Sea around Greece, Turkey, Israel, Cyprus and Egypt.

Where is the best place to sail?

Around 71% of the earth’s surface is covered in water, making for plenty of great places to sail. Some of the best places for sailing holidays include the Greek Islands, Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, Montenegro’s coastline, and the Aegean Sea. We also love the Whitsundays in Australia, New Zealand's Milford Sound, and Ecuador's Galapagos Islands.
