Cornwall Living 2018

Cruise of discovery

Introducing the Newell’s Travel Cruise Show – an event that will whisk you around the world without leaving Cornwall…

A cruise or river cruise holiday offers endless possibilities. Explore diverse cultures, cuisine, architecture and climates. Whether you’re seeking sun and sand or history and adventure, there’s always something different to see and do.

Whether you are a first time cruiser or a seasoned enthusiast, cruising the world is exciting for three main reasons. Firstly, you get the opportunity to experience many of the world’s most exciting destinations, from a number of interesting ports of call, all in one holiday and all while only having to unpack once. Secondly, travel in the highest levels of comfort, with impeccable customer service and plentiful amenities on board your floating hotel. The atmosphere on a cruise ship is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Lastly, cruise holidays are great value for money, typically including all meals, snacks, entertainment and en-suite accommodation. Many go that one step further and include all your on-board drinks and even shore excursions, making your cruise an all-inclusive holiday at sea.

To some, cruising is all about the formal occasion and the golden age of cruising. On these cruises, dinner jackets, white-gloved waiters, silver service and opulent surroundings are much in evidence. Many still lean towards this type of cruise and many brands successfully cater for these tastes. On the other hand, an increasing amount of passengers prefer the more relaxed and freestyle approach to cruising – a philosophy that’s all about freedom and flexibility and there are a number of cruise lines that offer this laid-back service.

The world of cruising has so much to offer all tastes with cruise ships that accommodate anything from 40 to 6,500 passengers, some with traditional features including afternoon tea and some with surf parks and fairground rides, not forgetting the 100s of boutique and river cruise ships that occupy the many rivers of Europe to the far-flung destinations such as the Yangtze and the mighty Mississippi. It’s really important to choose the right cruise for you and, with this in mind, Newell’s Travel has organised the ultimate cruise event to showcase many of the UK’s leading cruise lines and experts. This event, combined with the company’s passion for cruising will really whisk you around the world without leaving the county.

“We are very grateful to our main Cruise Show sponsor, Royal Caribbean Cruises, who has so generously donated a wonderful cruise prize which will be won on the day”, says Louise of Newells Travel. “You only have to attend to qualify – you need to be in it, to win it!
