The first 14 Best Cruises of U.K. Cruisers
The mere volumes of luxury liner shipping can be confusing for the first two. It' hard to know what greatness of vessel would correspond, the kind of cruise voyage to chose -- even where in the wold-to-cross. However, don't worry, we've produced a guidebook to some of the best opportunities for newcomers looking for their naval beetles.
Preferably for cruises from the UK. Why? The longest and most mature cruising line that sails from the UK coast, P&O Cruises has more than 180 years of experience. The company has a group of vessels operating from Southampton, among them the newest vessel, the 3,647-passenger Britannia, and twins Azura and Ventura, which transport 3,100 and 3,080 passenger.
The three are family-friendly boats. You will find 56 artisanal beer in Brodie's Pub; 20 or more different kinds of UK gin in Crow's Nest and Richter Craig Revel Horwood on select cruises. Britannia, Azura and Ventura are spending the summers with cruises to the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, Norway and fjords and the Baltic States, as well as brief trips to the Channel Islands and Belgium and Holland.
From two to 17 cruises. Today it operates the only purpose-built ferry and provides a six-night voyage from Southampton to Queen Mary 2, the largest and most comfortable boat in the group. QM2, the most stylish large boat at Sea, is reminiscent of the romantic ism of sailing on the oceans - and of the old tradition, such as the classification, in which riders are split between Queens Grill, Princess Grill and everyone else.
A number of trans-Atlantic cruises depart from Hamburg. In a strong Mediterranean atmosphere and with years of sailing through the Mediterranean, it is no wonder that MSC has declared the Mediterranean the centre and spirit of its worldwide activity. Towns such as Messina, Barcelona and Santorini are visited in summer.

The Olsen vessels leave from a number of British harbours on cruises to the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean and the Baltic Sea, as well as on departures to America and circumnavigations of the globe to the South Pacific, Australia and Asia. One of the biggest US based cruises with a very much family-friendly emphasis, and has two vessels in the UK.
Independence of the Seas, located in Southampton, is a member of the line's freedom category and was massively renovated in 2018, with brand-new amenities such as a virtuel-tripoline, skypad (picture above), a puzzle break room and a lasers day, in additon to the comprehensive children's amenities, an Indoor boardwalk, an icerink and a brand-new children's-waterpark.
