Explore the World on a Cruise Holiday

Everyone's got a list of places and sights they want to experience. Perhaps yours is the Caribbean - where you can find out the true meaning of 'barefoot paradise' and sink your toes into silky soft sands and hear the waves lapping onto a gently shelving bay. Maybe Florence is top of your must-see list, along with the regal statue of Michelangelo's masterpiece, David. Or perhaps you want to mix it up and see a little bit of everything on your next holiday? In which case, a cruise holiday could be right up your street.

Cruise holidays can take in a whole range of different destinations, from bucket-and-spade beach resorts to chic cities and famous architectural sights. There are plenty of ways to get there too. You can go direct to the cruise company itself - such as Royal Caribbean International, NCL or Thomson Cruise - or you can book through a travel operator such as Thomas Cook Cruises.

One of the great things about booking through an agent such as Thomas Cook is that you get a full spectrum of choice, and you're not just limited to specific brands. Choose from Princess Cruises, Cunard, Celebrity, Island Cruises, NCL, Carnival... and plenty more. This means you can browse a huge range of holidays and pick the one that best suits your holiday wish-list, as well as your dates and budget. Of course, with more choice and flexibility comes better affordability too.

Let's say you're after a luxury cruise but your budget is limited. A quick search via Thomas Cook shows plenty of cut-price options leaving within the next few weeks, as well as further in advance - complete with early bird discounts. Take P&O for instance. You'll find some of the best P&O cruises on offer with cruise holidays ranging from 2 nights to 23 nights, spanning a tantalising range of destinations including the Caribbean, Europe, the Canary Islands, Northern Africa and more.

Special offers are regularly advertised and you can shave a significant amount off the cost of you cruise holiday by staying vigilant to these deals. It's a great way to see the world without paying the earth for it.
