Three for Tuesday: Cultural ex-UK cruises for couples

Three for Tuesday: Cultural ex-UK cruises for couples

Share an interest? Or just share a space? Remember that a cruise is one of the most versatile holidays out there.

One party wants the beach, the other a thriving city – well life is too short to compromise so just have both. We have highlighted some sailings below that do exactly that. Remember, a cruise is what you make of it!

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Ex-UK 2015 guide, each week we will be running our Three for Tuesday feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s ex-UK trips for couples after a bit of culture.
