If you fancy getting away from it all this spring without venturing too far but still want to tick off a few destinations from the bucket list, a cruise is the ideal solution.
What could be better than relaxing on board a luxury cruise ship as you take to the seas? More to the point you’ll be to see some delightful ports of call along the way.
Our friends at talkholiday have some superb cruise deals right now and this one caught my eye.
This stunning voyage will take you on a colourful, atmospheric voyage around some of the Adriatic’s most scenic spots including Dubrovnik, Trieste, Venice, Rovinj and Hvar.
Starting off from the delightful city of Dubrovnik, in southern Croatia on the shores of the Adriatic, you can look forward to a week of beautiful scenery from land and sea.
Famous for its distinctive Old Town and its 16th Century stone walls, Dubrovnik has often been described as the ‘’pearl of the Adriatic’.
The Old Town became a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979 and is a must see for visitors to this pocket of the world.
Next stop on this voyage is the port city of Trieste, which welcomes visitors with a vibrant and cosmopolitan vibe.
Trieste Port is also the most important gateway of the Mediterranean for the coffee trade so you’ll be sure to find a decent cup in one of the many cafes!
Also on the agenda is the beautiful city of Venice. Hailed as one of Europe’s most romantic cities, Venice continues to seduce visitors and capture their hearts.
Its maze of ancient alleyways, stunning palazzos and stylish boutiques and bars will delight visitors.
Venice has a unique magic that draws thousands of visitors each year. Spring is a wonderful time of year to see this Italian delight, before it gets too crowded and too hot!
On the sail back to Dubrovnik, you will see a few more gems along the way such as the Croatian fishing port of Rovinj on the west coast of the Istrian Peninsula and the island of Hvar.
Cruises are becoming increasingly popular for 2016 as holidaymakers seek to pack in as many sights and cities as possible in a short amount of time.
Cruising means there’s no need to stress with planes, trains and automobiles to enjoy multiple destinations.
I travel a lot and whereby I have become something of an expert at packing my cases, I still can’t stand doing it and I love cruising for this very reason.
Pack and unpack once! Cruising allows holidaymakers to explore bustling, sun-drenched ports and fascinating places or they can choose to stay onboard and simply soak up the sun or enjoy the non-stop activities and entertainment.
There’s always plenty going on and for all ages too! Onboard dining options are extensive and there’s a huge range of mouth-watering dishes to sample as well exciting cocktails and international wines, beers and spirits.
Tempted? Go on; treat yourself to a spring adventure at sea and the realistic prices won’t make waves either.
