I want to change my holiday, what do I do?
Depending on when and where you are travelling to, we will assist you where we can but please bear in mind our focus is on July holidays at the moment.

Cruising is new to some, so here's some helpful information:

The dress code on cruise ships is as dressy or as relaxed as you want it to be. Evening dining requires smart casual. Casual is welcomed in all buffet areas at all times. Most cruises will have at least one formal night on board, suits and dresses are the clothing of choice, why not join in the fun and get your photo taken!

Remember when making purchases, all cruise ships use a cashless system whilst on board, on check in at port you will receive your own individual identity card which will also double as your room key and payment card. At the end of your cruise you can settle your bill at reception with cash or credit card.

Gratuities or tipping can be paid at booking or at disembarkation , the cost per day depends on the cruise company, your sales agent will be happy to advise you when booking.

It is your responsibility to obtain visas before your holiday, if you go ashore on an excursion with your cruise company, e.g. St Petersburg, a visa will be obtained on your behalf, if you choose to go independently you will be responsible for your own visa.

In order to enter the USA, every person travelling, including children, must have a visa, unless they qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Please visit https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta for more information.

Make the most of your holiday by adding a night or two pre or post cruise. From time to time cruise companies will offer extra deals on cabin upgrades and drinks packages, ask our expert cruise team for a quote!
