Get The Best Of Both Worlds On Your Winter Holiday

LONDON, December 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

• Cruise holidays continue to offer value for money

• More than 6 million European travellers took cruise holiday last year

• Thomas Cook offer range of   cruises    for winter travellers

Recent statistics have shown that 6.3 million European travellers embarked on a cruise in 2012*, a 5% increase in the number of bookings from the previous year. 2013 looks set to continue this growth trend with several fantastic cruises on offer. The leading travel company, Thomas Cook, offer a diverse selection of options for winter travellers. Here is how customers can get the best of both worlds with a cruise holiday this winter.

Fly to sea

Not all cruises set sail from Southampton. Passengers who wish to dive straight into the action can opt to fly to an exotic location and to embark on their chosen voyage from there; giving them more time to enjoy the exotic locations on offer. Thomas Cook now offer departure flights from many regional airports, helping you to get on board for the holiday of a lifetime.

If you're looking for a little out of season sun, then Caribbean Cruises will not only whisk you out of the dreary winter weather, but will also offer a great opportunity to explore the historic harbours, lush tropical forests and enchanting local towns.

There are numerous fly & cruise deals available and travellers can make their selections from a wide array of combinations and destinations. Information about whether the stated cost of the cruise includes flights can be found on the Thomas Cook website.


For real luxury, a trip aboard one of the many Celebrity Cruises, either to northern Europe or taking a tour around the Mediterranean, will provide top-quality travel. The staff to passenger ratio on a Celebrity Cruise is 2:1 and the furnishings on these ships are second to none.

For those who love the extreme cold, a trip to the snowy state of Alaska might be more to your liking. One of the benefits of a cruise is that whatever the climate outside, travellers can always retreat to the comfort of the interior to regale fellow guests with their tales.
