Home / Blog / Why Cruise The British Isles

It is so often the case that many who live on our beautiful Isle never really explore the delights it has to offer. Cruising is the best way to discover our home shores with an amazing mix of sweeping national parks, captivating scenery, iconic cities, natural wonders, and historic monuments. You’ll be surprised at what you find on your own doorstep!

Here are 5 benefits to taking a UK cruise:

Your Holiday Begins the Minute You Step on Board

I know that, for some, we feel our holiday begins the minute we leave the house. I always arrive at the airport early and give myself time to browse the shops, have something to eat and maybe even a small cocktail… but even I can’t deny that no amount of shopping, food or drinks can escape the annoyance of lengthy airport queues and many hours travelling. By setting sail from the UK all of this can be avoided and you can be on top deck with your feet up faster than airport security can say “place all liquids in the plastic bags provided”.

No Baggage Restrictions

With no flights, comes no hassle with luggage allowances. When cruising from the UK you don’t need to decide between the blue dress or the gold dress or wonder whether you can squeeze in that ‘just in case’ jacket - you can! It allows you the freedom to pack what you feel you need to make sure your cruise holiday is utterly perfect.

Incredible Itineraries

We often forget the beauty and wonder that is available right here on our doorsteps. With a UK cruise holiday, you can visit virtually inaccessible locations, gateways to stunning scenery and amazing historical sites.

Less Planning Required

With a UK cruise holiday, you can cross currency exchange and visa applications off your travel to-do list. Since you will be staying in the UK you need not worry about having different currencies for each destination or having to fill out lengthy forms to apply for travel visas.

No Jet Lag

No jet lag, need I say more… This is worth its weight in gold, even if you are only a mild sufferer. Having to account for a few days of recovery after heading home from a fabulous adventure on the opposite side of the world can sometimes take the shine off that post-holiday glow. A UK cruise holiday means you will be as relaxed when you return home as you were when onboard.

Would you opt for a British Isles cruise in the future? You’ll be surprised at what you find!

Booking was made easy and were very helpful during that process.

Booking with CruiseKings was made easy and staff were very helpful and answered any query made. They were very good in ensuring the booking was as I wanted and explained everything fully. This is my first booking with this company and so I cannot comment on the actual holiday until later. Hopefully this will go ahead without too much trouble or restrictions. I also think that you can only really know how good a company is by how the deal with any problems that may arise. Hopefully my holiday will be plain sailing with no issues.

Was delighted with the customer care I received from Melissa! Explained everything very comprehensively and gave some great advice.

Mrs Brogan / June 2021


Really pleased with the holiday purchase. What made the experience so good was the holiday rep, Heidi. A real fountain of knowledge, explained the various options that were available to us. Would have to say without all her knowledge and patience, we probably would not have booked.
