Sea cruises are a relatively new concept. Sailing for pleasure at this scale is a newer holiday form in strong growth. In the good old days, you could sail from Europe to “anywhere” with a commercial ship that brought goods or as a means of primary transport. Eg. to New York or to southern Spain to move on to Africa. It was the situation as late as the 20th century, but times are changing, but you can still book a cabin on a commercial cargo ship for a completely different transport at sea where the soul is all along. And there are still a number of direct routes that are not underpinned by the dominance of air transport.
Anyone who has tried a cruise will probably nod to the mix of comfortable transportation, daily new experiences, new friends, and fresh sea air forms an addictive cocktail. Some make cruises a way of life and live literally on a cruise ship. They say it’s cheap, there is fantastic food and nightclub every night. There are shows, performances, sports, yes an incredibly rich and entertaining travel life. There is also good medical care, the hospital is 100 meters away, the dentist is the same and there are a lot of new friends you can enjoy. Party on!
Others choose to fly to Miami and then see most of the Caribbean on an unforgettable trip or fly to Polynesia for the ultimate island hopping experience or to Rome and from there visit the selected and amazing cities along the Mediterranean in 3-4 countries in a week or 2.
Finally, there are a number of amazing and more unusual tour options. We only list a few here: The Amazon River on the Little Lux River Damper? The Norwegian fjords, such as Hurtigruten, are specialists in including the South Pole with departures from Buenos Aires or for the Danes the popular party trip to Oslo and back again with DFDS. The best way to arrive in Oslo in the archipelago for sure, and then you have a party from a-z back and forth.
Nothing visually beats the view of a destination rising on the horizon and slowly taking shape while standing on a ship contemplating how Vikings, pirates, and explorers must have felt way back.
