It is cruising season at Fahy Travel this autumn with a fantastic selection of special offers, cabin upgrades, and a chance to win a luxury cruise for two worth €3,750. Cruising offers the best value for money in terms of holidays on offer at the moment. There are still people who feel that cruising is only for a quiet, relaxing, holiday or for an older age group. If this applies to you have a look at the new range of onboard activities on offer.
Royal Caribbean is definitely the market leader when it comes to innovation in onboard entertainment. The company introduced the first onboard climbing walls, ice skating, and surf parks some years ago and it continues with the newest family of ships, the Oasis of the Seas with its rising tide bar, aqua theatre, Central Park, and boardwalk with family entertainments and carousel.
For families there are clubs available from toddlers to teenagers offering sports tournaments, themed parties, water park, and teen only nightclubs. The company also offers healthy menu options and My Family Time dining — the children are served quickly and collected for activities.
If relaxation is your thing all ships feature state of the art spas offering rejuvenating massage, soothing facials, and seaweed wraps. The ships feature a variety of grottos and chambers with dry heat, steam, or mist, and aromatherapy vapours.
World class fitness centres have all the facilities you will need for a great work-out including state of the art cardiovascular and weight machines. There is a full range of classes to suit all levels of fitness with Pilates, spinning, salsa marina, and trekking among those on offer.
There is also a greater range of itineraries available. Combine a couple of nights in Dubai with a cruise to Muscat on the Brilliance of the Seas. One of the best ways to see the stunning scenery that Alaska has to offer is from the sea, and Royal Caribbean offers weekly cruises from Vancouver and Seattle during the summer months. South America is fast becoming one of the more popular long haul destinations, and there is a range of itineraries on offer with three, four, six, and seven night itineraries to combine with any Brazilian holiday. If you are planning a trip ‘down under’ this spring you can cruise the South Pacific islands from Sydney or take in a cruise from Australia to New Zealand and back.
Cruise only prices start from €362 per person for four nights on the Caribbean to €535 for a seven night cruise from Dubai. Prices include accommodation (inside cabin), all meals, onboard entertainment, and gratuities.
If those prices are not keen enough, Royal Caribbean is running exclusive offers with the Worldchoice group for early bookers with free onboard credit, up to €440 off per cabin, and guaranteed cabin upgrades, plus champagne and strawberries. In addition the company is offering one lucky customer the chance to win a cruise for two on the de luxe Azamara Quest, Royal Caribbean’s international upmarket boutique cruise line. This cruise departs from Venice on November 6 and visits Zadar and Dubrovnik in Croatia, and Chania and Athens in Greece.
