Why you should book a tailor-made cruise & stay package: 5 top holidays for 2024 & 2025

Cruise and Stay holidays bring together the thrill of sailing the waterways of the world with the leisure of a more traditional holiday – here’s why a tailor-made package could be best for you.

Cruise and Stay holidays – what are they? A hybrid getaway, these package escapes see travellers enjoy the magic of cruising as well as the pleasure of extending their stay on land, before or/and after their break.

It’s easy to wish you had more time in your departure port, but it can be tricky when the focus of the day is to embark your ship. However, if you book a Cruise and Stay holiday you can arrive several days in advance of the sailing, live the high life in a pre-arranged hotel and explore the city to the max. Alternatively, tack on a getaway after your voyage; you could even take a land tour too and head out into the countryside. In short, stay and cruise holidays are the best of both worlds!

Cruise specialists, Iglu Cruise, offer a raft of tailor-made Cruise and Stay holidays 2024 and beyond, ensuring holidaymakers get their fix of turf and surf. A key benefit of booking a cruise package with a travel agent like Iglu is that not only is the hard work done for you, from flights to accommodation, but it can also work out at great value for money.

It’s no surprise that Cruise and Stay holidays are a super way for beginners to dip their toes into the cruise universe!
