City stays allow you to get even more out of your luxury cruise holiday.
Book a city stay after your voyage and you can enjoy the best of both worlds – an unforgettable luxury cruise, and a premium hotel stay afterwards in one of the world’s greatest cities.
Call our award-winning Cruise Concierge team free, and we can tailor your perfect cruise holiday combined with a range of city stays. You could cap off your tour of the Mediterranean with city stays in Rome or Barcelona, the great cities of art and architecture; or end your voyage in the Far East with a luxury hotel stay in fun-loving Sydney.
Mediterranean city stays can combine a host of inclusive benefits on your ocean tour with city stays of three nights or more in a luxury hotel once you reach your last destination. Spend a week or two relaxing in the sun during your cruise, wandering magnificent beaches and exploring the cultural wealth of cities like Athens, Rome or Istanbul.
Taste a glass of wine in some of the finest vineyards in the world, or see the ruins of ancient monuments built for emperors and gods. Take a gondola through Venice or walk beneath Moorish arches in Casablanca’s White Mosque – and finish off your Mediterranean tour with one of a range of hotel city stays in places like Barcelona or Old Corfu. You could take a bed on the sun terrace, relax with a drink in the beach bar, or wake up in a hotel in Rome for the ultimate shopping trip.
North and South America city stays could take you from the mountaintop ruins of Machu Picchu to the towering skyline of New York. Begin your holiday in Rio De Janeiro, looking over the carnival city in the bay from the feet of Christ the Redeemer – and end your voyage in the city of Puerto Iguazu, right on the doorstep of Brazil, Paraguay and one of the most magnificent national parks in the world.
Your cruise-and-stay holiday could take you from ancient monuments in Peru to the lively beaches and lush rainforest of Costa Rica beyond the Panama Canal. See the colonial beauty of Lima after breakfast in a luxury hotel; see turtles and bright tropical fish in the blue-glass waters of Cozumel, the diver’s paradise of Mexico; and cruise the magnificent Caribbean up to Florida before you head for the Atlantic and the iconic city of New York.
Far East and Australia city stays give you the perfect way to explore some of the word’s most exotic locations, and to complement your unforgettable voyage with a few nights’ stay in a luxury hotel. You could begin your cruise in Bali in Indonesia, a dream destination where incredible beaches meet striking green field terraces, fantastical pagodas and incredible wildlife and Buddhist architecture.
After a voyage through Lembar and Komodo, you could be heading on to the city of Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory – followed by a tour of Cairns and the unforgettable Great Barrier Reef. You could be snorkelling in the clear waters here, surrounded by some incredible sea life of every shape, size and colour – and end your cruise in true style with a choice of city stays, like time spent in the Sydney Four Seasons luxury hotel. Picture yourself waking up with spectacular views of the city’s bridge, harbour and opera house from your window. Get a taste for Australia’s active lifestyle in the hotel’s expansive fitness facilities; or simply get a taste of perfect cuisine in your hotel’s restaurant, or a gourmet snack by the pool with a cocktail.
