Cruises on a budget
All we hear about in the news these days is how bad the economy is; how levels of unemployment are continuing to increase and how all people can look forward to these days are weeks of rain, rain and more rain… But how to escape this doom and gloom I hear you cry! Well, not to worry, cruise providers such as Fred Olsen have the answer. Offering high quality experiences at low prices, cruise providers have made it possible for anybody to travel the world, whatever the budget. Whether you want to see the sights of Europe or go a little further afield there is plenty to choose from. However, our main concern is to concentrate on those cruises from the UK within the lower price range; to work out how you’ll be able to afford that much needed holiday without breaking your bank balance!
The Canary Islands
Setting out from Southampton, you’ll spend seven days on a tour around the Canary Islands absorbing all that Spanish life has to offer. From the picturesque views in Santa Cruz to the cultural diversity of Gran Canaria, you won’t be disappointed! What better way to start 2013 then by soaking up a little sun on a Spanish beach? Fred Olsen Cruises are offering this trip for the grand total of £359 per person; excellent value for money considering all that’s included!
Casablanca & the Algarve
If you’re eager to experience some culture in 2013 then this is the cruise for you. Taking you from Lisbon and Portimao to Casablanca and Santa Cruz, this trip is extremely diverse, allowing you to do anything and everything, from absorbing the rich social vibrancy of Portugal life to enjoying the adventures of Morocco’s best bazaars. Slightly more expensive than the previous cruise, this trip is offered by Fred Olsen for £479 per person, which for seven days, you’d have to agree, isn’t bad at all.
Amsterdam & Antwerp
Notorious for its outrageous nightlife, Amsterdam is one of those places which everyone feels like they have to visit at least once in their life. But aside from its reputation of being a place where you can really let your hair down, it’s also a beautiful city to visit. There are an abundance of cultural landmarks which may take your fancy, whether it is Amsterdam's ‘Rederijkerskamer’ or Anne Frank’s House, you’ll never be bored. And that’s not all; Antwerp also has a lot offer. Particularly because of its high status and acclaim within the art world, it tends to attract a large amount of visitors. For this trip, Fred Olsen are charging £399 per person for four nights; the perfect amount for you to not only make the most of these two dynamic cities, but to also enjoy the luxuries of being on a cruise.
