Going On A Cruise

Myself and Mr T haven't been on a cruise we can't really count the short trip to Amsterdam where the seas were a bit choppy and the cabins had no windows . This at first did put Mr T off but since watching television programs and when friends and colleagues going on cruises Mr T is gently warming to the idea of going on a cruise. One of the types of cruises a friend went on was a Baltic cruise where she was wowed seeing so many countries and their architectural splendour .

Why should you consider a cruise ?

If you've wanderlust and want to see a myriad of countries without having to keep flying to them then a cruise is ideal ! You'll also find on board like minded people in board to share in your passion of travelling whilst at the same time you'll have the opportunity for those quiet times that you might crave . On board you'll find great entertainment and a good selection of restaurants to dine it , the choice is yours . Also when you reach your destination you can go on one of the optional excursions with an informative guide or explore on your own. That's the superb thing about going on the cruise is that it is truely flexible , the only limit really is your imagination!

Where might you visit on a Baltic Cruise ?

Departing from Newcastle you sail to first Oslo Norway then a day at sea , having a day at sea allows you to completely relax , rest and unwind which is of course why you've come on a cruise.

The other destinations that you'll visit include St Petersburg Russia , Helskini Finland , Stockholm Sweden and many many more exciting cultural designations.

Helsinki Finland 


Stockholm Sweden


You can even take a cruise closer to home whilst exploring the Highlands and as I'm Scottish I would particularly love to go on this !! 

Edinburgh Scotland 


I've heard that cruise ships are like a home from home and I'm all for being a comfortable explorer with attentive cruise staff on hand . So why not think of a cruise for your next holiday maybe I know I am especially with the teen off to university this year, and the cost isn't too dissimilar to what I'd pay for a holiday by air for the 2 of us.

All the cruises depart from Newcastle which is very easy to get to either by car , train or coach and even air with relative ease. I'm glad to have written this post for Thomson Cruises as it has got me thinking where I'd like to go on my next holiday.
