New horizons, and waking up to them, fresh vistas every time you pull back those curtains and relaxing on some of the most exciting ships ever to sail the seven seas. With two-thirds of this big, beautiful world covered in ocean, luxury, adventure, and even water slides aren’t limited to just dry land anymore.
We know what makes a cruise, and know every ship from top to bottom, stem to stern. We know the best ports to call at, and the best ways to combine a cruise trip with the perfect destination whether it's one, two or three!
If you fancy hitting Orlando’s theme parks at full tilt before taking to the high seas for a fun, family cruise holidays around the Caribbean, we’re on it. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to witness Alaska’s dramatic coastline, but love the idea of urban exploration around Vancouver, too? You don’t have to choose between the two with Virgin Holidays Cruise and Stay packages.
Whether this is your first cruise trip or your 21st, there’s a lot of open water out there to explore, and a lot of choice when it comes to destinations, resorts and the cruises themselves. We wouldn’t want you to feel overwhelmed when it comes to planning your time sailing the ocean blue, so we’re here to break down our cruise types for you.
Cruise & Stay holidays merge everything that rocks about cruise holidays with a fun-filled stay in an extraordinary place. Whether you want a blissful beach break or to stick around to explore a city, you can easily pair it with an epic cruise experience to keep your journey constantly fresh and vibrant. Party, relax and treat yourself onboard before getting up close and personal with a fantastic destination, all in one holiday.
Booking a fly and cruise option is simply to land you into your holiday destination quicker than setting sail from a UK port. This offers you flexibility to jet straight to the Caribbean islands in a shorter space of time. Or perhaps combine a cheeky stay on land (Florida perhaps?) before hopping on board one of our favourite cruise lines. There's so many options we can help with to make your cruise holiday tailored to you.
Since we're part of the Virgin family, it's a no brainer we'll fly you with Virgin Atlantic to start your cruise.
Don’t feel like flying? Want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the airport? We’ve got you covered with plenty of departures from ports in the UK, and you’ll still have the world at your fingertips. Sail around Europe for a taster (perfect for those who are new to cruising), or take the scenic route over the ocean as far as the Caribbean for cruise holidays that start as soon as you’re onboard.
