One of the most popular forms of travel for the young and old alike are cruise ships. Cruises from UK are becoming popular among holidaymakers who are looking for a unique travel activity because they are budget-friendly, easy to book and very convenient; especially when it comes to travel logistics. Of course, there are a host of different destinations to choose from and each will offer its own set of unique sights and attractions. Since many of us are eager to book a European cruise, let us take a quick look at three top-notch destinations that should not be missed.
Spain is considered by many to be the perfect cruise ship destination. This is due in no small part to the sheer variety of Mediterranean ports that can be experienced. For example, a family can enjoy fun in the sun while stopping off at Malaga or Fuengirola in the southern portion of the coastline. Those who wish to partake in a truly eclectic city can instead opt for a cruise that arrives at the large city of Barcelona. If the ship will remain in port for more than one day, the majestic peaks of Montserrat are less than an hour from the city centre. For more coastal destinations, a number of authoritative websites will naturally come in very handy.(Image by Dmitriy Fomenko)
The Canary Islands
This small chain of islands is said to represent one of the most unique (and intact) ecosystems on the planet. Visitors who appreciate the great outdoors will be particularly awed by nature preserves such as Palmitos Park, Teide National Park and Cueva de los Verdes (Green Cave). While these sights are worth a visit, let us not forget that the Canary Islands boast countless majestic beaches that many claim represent true heaven on earth. After taking a cooling dip in the cerulean blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, tourists can head to the capital city of Gran Canaria for some “tapas” and a few souvenirs before disembarking once again.
It is no surprise that the city of Amsterdam is seen as an extremely popular European destination. With a bustling nightlife and a rather universal culture, Amsterdam will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on any visitor. While the city is famous for its “wild” side, it should also be noted that there are a number of interesting cultural attractions that are informative and unforgettable. A few of these include the Anne Frank House, museums that house the works of such famous painters as Rembrandt and Van Gogh, the Royal Palace of Amsterdam and the NEMO Maritime Science Centre. If we include numerous outdoor parks and daily excursions to the countryside, it is clear to appreciate why Amsterdam is popular for travelers of all ages and nationalities.(Image by Jaume CP BCN )
These are but three of the numerous cruise destinations that are frequented by a growing number of visitors each year. Arriving to these areas in style through the use of a luxury cruise will allow any holiday to be even more relaxing. Thankfully, the ability to book any trip online and to find amenable pricing packages has never been easier. While locations such as Spain, the Canary Islands and Amsterdam are amazing, simply arriving to these regions on a cruise is an experience in and of itself!
