Kicking back and travelling in style is one of my favourite things to do, and there’s a surprising amount of benefits to doing this aboard a cruise ship. I know, many people assume a cruise ship will be full of stuffy old folk in dinner dresses, but they are actually a lot of fun.
Particularly when you are visiting an exciting destination, there are incredible views, 5-star food and plenty of amusement to make the actual journey the experience. The melting pot of people from a wide range of different countries make up the clientele on a cruise liner, and all age groups are represented. Here is a guide to 4 completely different, and equally vibrant and exciting places you can visit on a Fantasia Iglu Cruise ship.
Famous for its incredible, trippy architecture, Barcelona is a must-see destination. The capital of Catalonia is part-ancient city, part-fun arty destination, riven with exciting shops, street art and the biggest indoor market in Europe: La Boqueria.
With its international port, Barcelona is a truly colourful and vibrant city, full of interesting people, places and things that will make a Mediterranean cruise truly unforgettable.
One of the most famously opulent cities in the world, a trip to Dubai on a cruise ship offers stunning coastline, exclusive shopping and a chance to view some of the most dynamic architecture of anywhere in the world.
Set against the backdrop of delightful desert, Dubai is a characteristic city that throngs with people and is a jewel on any Middle Eastern cruise.
Sprawling, cosmopolitan and romantic, Rome is an art lover’s dream. With waterways and winding streets, a lovely break from the cruise ship is getting around Rome on foot. Cobbled streets to get lost in, designer shops and a classy way of life, simply soaking up the atmosphere in Rome will leave you wanting more. Remember to throw a coin in the Trevi fountain to secure your return to this inspirational capital.
Lined with mountains and deserts, the city of Muscat is characterised by minarets, Portuguese forts and tradition-steeped buildings, whilst also offering some of the most diverse shopping facilities.
Entering into the bay area, dolphins are commonly seen, making it a place of carving fantastic memories for your cruise.
