Cruising through retirement

Cruising has become so popular that most of the major cruise lines have more than doubled their capacity in the last year.

“It would have to be one of the best value-for-money holidays because it’s all inclusive,” The Travel Agent cruise holidays’ consultant, Louise Nichols said.
“You can dine out every night with a sumptuous restaurant dinner followed by a Broadway show and as a nightcap take in some live music in a piano bar – all the while you are cruising to another exotic destination… and the best part is you unpack once!”
There’s also ample opportunity to strike up new friendships whilst cruising as you share your day’s experiences over dinner and a glass of fine wine. If you love to shop, take a stroll down the duty free arcade and check out the special offers that are exclusive to on-board guests.
“You will feel like royalty as the crew do everything they can to make your cruise experience a holiday of a lifetime!” Louise said.
Cruise companies reward past passengers, who are loyal to their brand, with extras such as on-board credit, an invitation to the captain’s dinner and laundry services.
“You don’t even have to wash your own clothes when you are a preferred passenger. You can do as little or as much as you like and boredom is not on the agenda. While you cruise, you’re spoilt for choice, as there’s a busy schedule of activities all day long. Bingo is very popular with jackpots going off on the last day of the cruise. Imagine winning the jackpot and being able to pay for the cost of your cruise while on-board!”
