The Big Three: ex-UK cruises from the north

ex-UK cruises from the north

If you live in the north of England and want to take a cruise from a nearby port your options are fairly (although not completely) limited. Given that it is quicker to drive to a Scottish port than it is to Southampton, really it depends on where your client wants to go. Below we have selected three cruises from Newcastle and Liverpool that show just where you can travel to. However, neither Cruise & Maritime or Fred Olsen markets themselves as a family cruise line. So, while the destinations themselves are varied, families need not apply.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Ex-UK guide 2016, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from based on regional ports. This week it’s cruises that leave from Scottish ports.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Cruises from regional ports can be a great way of introducing your clients to the industry. Try one of the shorter, mini-cruises, which usually only run for one or two nights and allow them to dip their toe in the water.
