With many holidays being cancelled for 2020 or travel plans placed on hold, many of us are left wanting to go bigger and better once we can leave the country again! From upgrading our seats on a plane to ticking off that bucket-list destination, here are some of the ways you can upgrade your holiday and take your cruise further than ever before.
Book a dream suite
We’ve all dreamt of staying in a top penthouse or suite from time to time, and why not? They offer some of the best perks and amenities you could ever imagine. The Regent Suite alone comes complete with an in-suite spa; personal butler; marble bathrooms; two private balconies; Pablo Picasso paintings, and a custom Steinway grand piano. We would never want to leave!

Extend your cruise
Ever wished you could stay on holiday that little bit longer. Why not upgrade your cruise and opt for an extended sailing so that you can make the most of life on-board and enjoy every minute of your itinerary? Take time to truly relax with spa days, sample every dining venue on-board or simply lay by the pool for longer – all guilt-free.
Add a hotel stay
Pairing your cruise with a hotel stay is a great way to settle in before setting sail. Pre- and post-cruise hotel stays allow you to experience the destinations for longer, learning more about the culture, cuisine and local life before exploring the surrounding regions on your cruise.
Book a shore excursion
It is known that shore excursions are great for learning more about your destinations, as they offer incredible holiday memories to last a lifetime. View your port from above in a helicopter or paragliding; trek through the nature of the landscape on foot, or dive beneath the surface to view a secret marine world below. No matter where you are sailing to, there is always the perfect excursion for you.
Upgrade your flights
Your holiday begins as soon as you leave your home, so why not consider upgrading your fights to start your holiday in style? Business Class is not just additional leg room and comfier seats, it offers perks such as priority boarding, gourmet food, more storage and access to a premium class lounge to truly relax before flying.
Getaway for a special occasion
Due to the current climate, many of us won’t have been able to celebrate a special occasion properly or will have missed out on friends and family members birthdays. Why not opt for celebrating in style next year with a holiday alongside your loved ones. Holidays are a fantastic way to have fun with family and friends. Set sail to their favourite destination or visit somewhere romantic for an unforgettable time.
Getaway for New Years’ Eve
Spend New Year overlooking Sydney’s Harbour, count down to midnight in Times Square or watch fireworks behind the Eiffel Tower. Wherever in the world you choose to see in the new year, make memories to last a lifetime when you end one year and begin the next during a cruise.
Visit a dream destination
Paradise ports, endless landscapes, arctic regions – everyone has that one place they would love to visit in their lifetime. A bucket-list destination that is top of the list. With cruises sailing to most corners of the world, make your dream a reality and set sail there on your next cruise.
Try a world cruise
It would be a dream to see the world wouldn’t it? To visit each continent and see what makes it so distinctively unique? World cruises offer exactly that. With the added bonus of only unpacking the once, sail to hundreds of ports in one incredible trip that is sure to leave you in awe of the world we live in.
Pair a cruise with an incredible experience
Opt for exploring the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies from the panoramic window of your train carriage with the Rocky Mountaineer, or don your trusty walking boots for the nature trails of the Ancient Inca footpaths and learn of the heritage of Machu Picchu – there’s no end to the awe-inspiring experiences you can pair with a luxury cruise.
Whether you go for a short stay and land adventure before your cruise or end your getaway with a three-day rail journey, it’s bound to make your upgraded cruise holiday unforgettable.
