The Big Three: Three to seven-day luxury European cruises

The Big Three: Three to seven-day luxury European cruises

short European break can often form part of a longer holiday, or be one of many trips a luxury client takes during the year. Below we have selected three very different trips – a mini-cruise in the Scottish islands, a transatlantic crossing and a week on one of Europe’s most forward thinking cruise lines. Each offers something different, while all remaining absolutely luxurious.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Luxury guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s cruises of between three and seven days through Europe.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Be sure to consider every part of your client’s holiday. How are they getting from the airport to the ship? How are they getting to the airport in the first place? The Cunard cruise includes economy class flights but if you call its team then they will give you details of how to upgrade to business and first class.
