Dark, mysterious, powerful; the sea is seen as the gateway to adventure and new, undiscovered lands. This is how the ancients viewed the sea, but in many ways the same can be true today.
Modern cruise holidays mean you can travel in the lap of luxury aboard state-of-the-art ships, packed full of lavish amenities. What other holiday could possibly allow you to take your 5-star hotel with you from place to place? P&O have a large number of cruise ships that cater to every taste. If you want to enjoy an adults only cruise, then why not book yourself onto the Arcadia? Or if your imagination is as broad as the horizon, then why not book a berth on the Ventura, one of the fleet’s largest signature ships, packed full of entertainment. Even if you don’t know your port from your starboard, or your bow from your stern, why not book yourself onto a cruise and discover the sea-dog within?
Even better, with a cruise you can enjoy multiple destinations, meaning you can experience a kaleidoscope of different sights, languages and cultures, and all in absolute comfort with the finest of naval traditions. Whereas to move between these cities would otherwise involve continuous security checks and small, uncomfortable flights, by cruising peacefully over the waves you can really relax and enjoy yourself on holiday – which after all is what a holiday is really for! And with all the amenities aboard the ships of the fleet, moving between places is half the fun!
When it comes to those places to visit, the world really is your oyster. If you want to put into port among the azure waters of the Caribbean, or explore the wonders of the ancient and modern world in the Mediterranean, you can be your own explorer; Why not travel with P&O cruises and set a course for your ideal holiday. You can enjoy the imposing Renaissance architectural splendour of Florence, before basking in the glory of Ancient Rome. You can delve deep into the historic and vibrant port of Marseille in France, and then enjoy the glitz and glamour of Cannes. To top it all off, you can wonder at the beauty of the Sagrada Familia and enjoy a stroll down Las Ramblas in Barcelona.
So if you’re struggling for a holiday idea for 2012, make sure that you’re on the look-out for some of the last-minute Mediterranean cruises that are available!
