With summer feeling like a million miles away, we wouldn’t be surprised if you were already thinking of your next holiday, and perhaps considering taking a P&O Arcadia cruise. Whilst you’re stuck in the office watching the rain hit the windows and the time go by, you could be sitting on a beach in the Caribbean, sipping cocktails and soaking up the sun. Well, what’s stopping you? Thanks to the brilliant selection of cruises at the moment, you could be lying on a white sand beach, rock climbing and abseiling, or even admiring some fine European architecture; whatever your heart desires! Need some inspiration? Here are the cruises we believe you can’t miss in 2013!
If you’re yet to experience the complete luxury of a Caribbean cruise, then you’re in for a real surprise! The ultimate in indulgence, Caribbean cruises allow you to not only admire the clear blue skies and stunning landscapes, but you’re also able to explore the islands; to treat yourself to a little bit of history! One island you’re guaranteed to love is Barbados, a destination where you’ll have the opportunity to try an abundance of things. From snorkelling with turtles to the Barbados golf club, you’ll never be bored. Or maybe that all sounds too active for your liking, perhaps you’d prefer to witness a tropical sunset whilst drinking champagne? Whatever you choose, you won’t regret a trip to the Caribbean.
If you’d prefer something a little closer to home, then a Baltic cruise could be the vacation you’ve been looking for. Providing that perfect combination of both culture and relaxation, a trip round the Baltic is certainly a unique holiday experience that you won’t want to end. A particular favourite location of ours has to be Stockholm. Like looking for a good bargain and scouring shop windows? Then the Swedish capital is ideal for you. With cobbled streets filled with quaint little cafes and charming boutiques, you’ll be spoilt for choice! And when you’re not enjoying some retail therapy, you could always learn more about Sweden’s rich heritage. From Viking Gold to visiting the Royal Palace and Old Town, the world is your oyster! (Or maybe just the Baltic...)
A less conventional holiday-break, Asia and Orient cruises are a fantastic way to discover more about a famously vibrant and enchanting continent. Taking you everywhere from Kuala Lumpur to Vietnam, you will, without doubt, lose yourself in what these destinations have to offer you. One spot which you should definitely try to make the most of is Hong Kong. Renowned for its lively and energetic street life, you’ll soon realise that there’s never a dull moment in this city. A means to really appreciate this dynamic atmosphere is to take an open top bus tour by night. Here you’ll be able to see the place brought to life, the bright lights and grandeur really showcasing Hong Kong’s spectacular architecture. Love immersing yourself in different cultures? Then this is the cruise for you!
