Cruise is one of the fastest growing areas for holidays - so why should you consider going. on one?
There are cruises for everyone - families, couples and solo travellers alike can all find one to suit them, along with specialist interest cruises like Bridge, music, Disney etc.
They are great value as usually everything is included in the price; travel, accommodation, food, entertainment and sometimes even the drinks.
And, you get to see lots of places and only have to unpack once.
Cruise lines pride themselves on the quality of their food, with a fantastic range of foods served across a number of different themed restaurants, and of course, they cater for the kids.
Cruising is great for families, with activities and entertainment for both the grown-ups and the kids. Kids Clubs and babysitting services mean that Mum & Dad can get some proper 'together' time.
And then there is the pampering - most cruise ships have a spa offering a range of treatments, pools, hot tubs and of course the all important sun loungers where you can (literally) watch the world drift by.

River cruising is definitely more intimate with the focus being more on relaxation and sightseeing. Scenery is constantly changing so no two days are ever alike.
The ships are much smaller with fewer guests, so you can get to know everyone on board, and the crew get to know you.
As the ships are smaller, there are fewer on-board facilities, but that does not mean they are any less luxurious, with some staterooms having their own butler!
It also means that they can dock in the heart of a city taking you straight to the sights, giving you more time in each destination.
Shore Travel partners with some of the best know river cruise companies including Riviera, Viking, Scenic, Emerald Waterways and Uniworld.
