The Best Cruises

These days the cruising menu goes as far beyond the Caribbean as it does beyond a seafood buffet – all the way to exciting destinations you can only reach via boat of helicopter. But cruising is also a good way to see more of coastlines nearer to home: The Spanish, Portuguese, Croatian or Norwegian just for starters.
And modern cruising can also be a compromise holiday when the kids demand Disneyland and you have your sights fixed on exploring the wine regions of the South of France by barge. So a floating hotel is really worth considering, whatever type of watery break you're dreaming of.
