Another Great Cruise Offer!

There must be something in the air, or rather water, these days with all these fantastic cruise deals. If your budget simply won’t allow the wonderful Crystal Cruises offer from yesterday then don’t miss out on this –

  • Balcony cabin included in the price
  • Add Glasgow/Belfast City flights for £99pp
  • Add kids 2-17yrs for £99pp
  • £100pp deposits Cruise only
  • £250pp deposits Fly cruise

Contact PRS Travel Expert today to book – these will go quickly! Not what you’re looking for, then we can find your own perfect cruise or land-based break if you don’t have your sea-legs! There is something out there for everyone.

Now, I have noticed that seasoned cruise fans prefer to take a coach or train to Southampton – or drive down taking a break on the way by either booking a hotel with me or staying with family/friends. The reason for this – baggage allowance!

Okay, I can see their point but if you’d prefer the quick and easy route then there is a flight option from Glasgow or Belfast. And for only £99. The excess baggage you’d bring back, considering the food you get on a cruise, would be yourself!

As always your booking with PRS Travel Expert is 100% financially protected.

Imperial Jewels of China

China is more accessible now than ever but remains on the wish list or bucket list for many. Rather than a cheap flight and city break the best way to experience this intriguing country is to tour. Yes, there are the obvious tourist attractions such as the Great Wall but really, would you want to go to China and *not* witness this iconic structure? Add to that the Terracotta Army, a must for anyone interested in culture and history.

Viking River Cruises design their itineraries to fully explore the local culture while travelling in comfort. Intimate and inclusive you get to immerse yourself in the local culture, cuisine, customs and people.

Walk along the Great Wall and through Beijing’s old hutong neighbourhoods. Contrast the stylised sculpted beasts guarding the Sacred Way of the Ming Tombs with the life-like statues of Xian’s Terracotta Army. Cruise between the bamboo groves and limestone pinnacles of the Yangtze’s Goddess Stream. Our 15-day cruise tour is the perfect introduction to China, showcasing its most important cultural centres and the mighty Yangtze.b

Cruise Fantastic

Since returning to the travel industry a few months ago I have to admit to going from rather chilly towards cruises to actually considering one for myself. And if you knew how I felt towards boats (ship, dingy and everything in-between!) then you’d know what a huge step that is!

Despite recent bad press, the cruise industry is taking steps towards sustainability. Very important for a worldwide tourism draw. I do like the idea of visiting a few different ports and there are ships to suit different requirements. So if you want to go with your family and have fun and action or you want a quiet, elegant experience then there is a cruise to suit.

I’ll highlight different kinds of cruises, if there is anything in particular you’d like to see then let me know and I’ll feature it, concentrating on aspects you’d like to know about and, of course, I’ll book that ideal cruise for you!

Royal Caribbean, despite the name, sail the Mediterranean too! And leaving from Southhampton they have cruises to suit all budgets. Check these deals out – prices correct as of 31st July 2017.

Cruises From Rosyth? Yes, You Can!

Quite often cruise ships dock at Leith, Edinburgh which is a lovely place in itself and that’s before you’ve ventured further into our fine capital city. However, there is another port on the east coast of Scotland that is worth considering, especially if you’re looking to cruise directly from Scotland and that’s Rosyth.

It may not be the prettiest of ports, functional rather than an actual destination. Rosyth lacks the facilities and, let’s be honest, it’s the port of call ugly sister. The third Forth bridge construction nearby has meant it’s been more of a storage amenity and tourist needs have been somewhat neglected. But that’s unfair. Scotland needs more ports, more connections with Europe. A few years ago we had a regular ferry to Zeebrugge and although it was supposedly cancelled due to lack of interest, we could never get booked on it as it was always full. Hmmn. And look at the views we had as we sailed under the bridges (only two at that point!)

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines have decided to invest in Rosyth and, from next year, their ship Balmoral will be departing from there. You can sail from Rosyth now and there’s a Summer Sale on (or should that be Summer Sail! Boom boom!) Contact me to book –

And for next year, get ahead and book your onboard adventure! Tomorrow, I’ll write about my ship visit on Fred. Olsen’s Braemar to give you a taste of what to expect –
