March 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

If you love to cruise, but would prefer extra time to explore on land or if you're a first time cruiser and simply want to test the water, then opting for a cruise and stay holiday could be just the ticket.

Cruise and stay holidays are the perfect way to combine an on land exploration with an at sea adventure. As cruisers have to fly to abroad to meet their ship, it has become an extremely popular option to add on a few days extra and explore the destinations that they set sail from, or even after the cruise has docked.

Mediterranean Cruise and Stay

Some of the sights you can see in Athens include; the large hill of Acropolis which overlooks the city and offers a collection of ancient ruins; Parthenon which is known for its towering marble columns and impressive architecture; and the temple of Erechtheion. Rome is another popular place to visit and attractions include; the Colosseum, the art of Michelangelo or visiting St Peter's Square. Commonly known as one of Europe's most romantic cities, Venice is a place of colourful buildings, beautiful canals and gondolas around every turn. Barcelona is an exciting city full of endless shopping facilities, Gaudi's La Sagrada and a host of other architectural wonders. Istanbul offers an array of magical palaces and temples and Dubrovnik is the place to discover picturesque coastline, ancient city walls and charming cobbled streets.

If you are looking to book a Mediterranean cruise and stay holiday then there are many incredible destinations waiting to be discovered. With cities such as Athens, Rome, Venice, Barcelona, Istanbul and Dubrovnik all on offer, it comes as no surprise that many avid cruisers want to spend a few days exploring these incredible places. Any self-respected travel agent will offer a city tour as part of their hotel stay, so make sure you shop around for the best offer.

Caribbean Cruise and Stay

Stretches of powdery white sand beaches, turquoise coloured waters and a host of water adventures is everything you can expect from a Caribbean cruise and stay adventure. Blissfully sailing around beautiful islands, the Caribbean is a holiday that's all about relaxing and staying a little longer in port is quite a popular choice. Cruises around the Caribbean tend to begin in Miami, so this is a good choice for a hotel stay. You can visit a host of sights including; Palm Beach, explore the city markets or even visit Space Kennedy Centre. Barbados is also a great place to begin your holiday and with pristine beaches, crystal clear waters and a relaxed pace of life, it's not hard to see why. Don't limit yourself to just these places though, you can stay just about anywhere and it doesn't have to be at the start of your cruise either. Many travel agents are now offering stays before and after, so you can create the package that's best for you.

Whether you are a first time cruiser and simply just want to test out the water then cruise and stay could be the one for you. Not only do you get the chance to see if cruising is the holiday for you, but you also get to enjoy a hotel holiday in some of the world's most sought after destinations.
