Styles of group cruises
There are many different types of cruise; some are traditional with formal nights and a British style of cruising, whilst others offer a more relaxed environment with a European or American style of cruising. Some are 6-star and all-inclusive where everything is included onboard, others may charge you for drinks and shore excursions - it is important for us to select the right cruise for you and your group, and can work to any budget to fit in with your groups requirements.
A cruise is a great way to celebrate a family birthday or anniversary, or even a family reunion cruise. We all lead such busy lives a family cruise can be the only time of the year where your family is all together in one place. There is so much to do onboard and cruise ships cater for all age groups, from supervised kids clubs and teen groups, to ballroom dancing and pub quiz nights. We can book your family in neighbouring cabins, interconnecting cabins, family suites, or even on different decks if you prefer! We can also arrange for you all to dine together every evening, and can arrange family tours in the ports of call for you.
