Sail Away This October Half-term Holiday

LONDON, October 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Tired of the same old half-term holidays and days out at the mercy of the British weather?
  • Keep the kids occupied and give yourself a taste of luxury by going on a Thomas Cook cruise this October.

The advantage of going on a cruise is that you can depart from a port near to you and be transported to foreign lands without traffic jams or hanging around at airports.

For those looking to limit their trip to the half-term holiday, Cruise Thomas Cook is offering you plenty of options. Choose to travel to the cosmopolitan city of Brussels, in the heart of Europe, on a compact two-night stay that gives you a full day to explore this iconic city.

To help you find the best cruise options for your holiday this coming half-term, Thomas Cook offers a guide to some of their best cruise liners and what travellers can expect once on board:

P&O Cruises Aurora

A fantastic ship to start sailing on and equally suited to experienced sailors, the P&O Aurora, a mid-sized ship with a classic British style, will carry you to vibrant destinations while letting you enjoy the finest cuisine and leisure facilities for an unbelievable price.

Let the kids enjoy themselves at age-specific activities which cater for toddlers and teenagers while you go and dine in the intimate surroundings of the continental Café Bordeaux.

P&O Cruises Arcadia

Sometimes those of us with, and without, children want to enjoy the peace and atmosphere of a cruise in the company of adults only. For them, the glamorous P&O Arcadia is the perfect choice; offering a stylish experience for those who wish to indulge themselves.

This October it sails away to the sun-kissed Mediterranean, with a 10-night itinerary that includes stops in the gorgeous Portuguese capital of Lisbon and the iconic Moorish city of Casablanca. Opulent surroundings are complemented by a variety of different restaurants, including The Orchid Restaurant, created by much-loved Marco Pierre White.

P&O Cruises Ventura

If you prefer a large ship with a multitude of activities to choose from, look no further than the Ventura; one of the largest cruise liners available to UK travellers.

Boasting unrivalled entertainment and a restaurant headed by none other than Marco Pierre White (The White Room) there really never is a dull moment on the Ventura.
