There’s’ nothing quite like a holiday on the high seas

by Sylvia Pownall

Cruise holidays have shaken off their ‘Golden Girls’ image and are now very much in vogue with savvy travellers of all ages.

There’s nothing quite like a holiday on the high seas – waking up in a different destination each day without having any of the hassle of packing and unpacking your suitcase.
Anyone who’s tried it will tell you they’re a cruise convert because you can’t beat the heady thrill of feeling the breeze in your hair as you watch the sunset on deck.

Then there’s the wealth of entertainment and facilities on board, not to mention the dining options from a la carte to buffet which will literally leave you spoiled for choice.
GoHop partner with a vast choice of cruise lines and ships to offer a huge range of popular destinations around the world.
