Cruise - Ocean Cruise
How to celebrate an anniversary in style
If you want a 'no agro' holiday go on a cruise. Not just any old cruise. Think it through first.. Firstly take the advice of friends and family as to which cruise line or destination to choose that will suit your needs. I put 'no flying' first and looked for cruises going out from Southampton. Then I chose 'sunny destinations.' (The Med is great if you are limited to the days you can be away. Also there are so many different ports of call.) Next choose the shipping line. Do you want formal or informal? I personally think that formal makes the cruise more refined. In this respect P&O Cruises fitted the bill for our trip to the Canaries for our wedding anniversary. Getting on board was a doddle. We parked the car, gave staff the luggage, signed in and we were on board within half an hour. We hadn't bothered to book a room with balcony, but chose an outside cabin. (Sufficient if you are not going to reach warmer weather for a few days.) The advantage of cruising is that you visit so many places that you may not get to see otherwise. The food and service on board was excellent and the theatre shows were pretty good, with the theatre being a cinema during the day. There is plenty to do on board whilst at sea – library, games room, demonstrations etc. We chose to book all the tours in advance to avoid last minute hassle, but you don't have to leave the ship if you don't want to. Because cruising is proving so popular I suggest that you cruise fairly soon because some cruise lines are tending to go 'down market', making them more like a holiday camp. Anyway we had a great time and hope to save up to celebrate another anniversary.
