A cruise holiday suited to you

We’re here to break down our cruise and stay packages for you, so you can choose the best cruise holiday for your time on the ocean blue. 

Whether you’re new to cruise or you’re a seasoned sailor, cruise holidays are something special. You want to make the most of your time at sea and there’s a lot of destinations, resorts and itineraries to consider.

We wouldn’t want you to feel overwhelmed with all the options out there, so we’ve got everything you need on this page. Pick your perfect type of cruise below — we’re sure there’s one that’ll float your boat. 

Cruise and Stay

Caribbean Cruise and stay

Best of both worlds

Cruise and stay holidays are our most popular cruise option, and for good reason. They’re a great choice if you can’t quite decide on where to go for a much needed vacay. You’ll get a holiday by land and sea (or sea and land, if you prefer) so you won’t miss out on island-hopping in the Bahamas or finally seeing the Big Apple before or after you set sail. You can do it all with these fantastic cruise itineraries. 

Fly and Cruise

Fly Cruise

Go further afield

If you want to make the most of the open seas, then a fly and cruise package is just what you need. You’ll fly out (in style with Virgin Atlantic, of course) and head to your departure port, where your cruise ship will awaits to take you to places you might not have considered before. You'll enjoy having everything in one place — accommodation, food and entertainment all on board. No complex holiday plans. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Do as much or as little as you'd like!

Cruise from the UK

Cruise UK

Anchors away from home turf

The world is right there on your doorstep, so why not take a cruise from one of the many UK ports and cut out the cost of an international flight? Cruising from the UK can be your way of starting your holiday immediately, without the hustle and bustle of an airport. If you're new to cruise, many cruise lines offer ‘tasters’ (short cruises) to see if a holiday at sea is for you. This is a convenient way to get all the perks of a cruise holiday for less.
