Enrich Your Holiday Experience

By BijalTuesday 25th April 2017

We all love a relaxing break in the sunshine, but research has shown that in recent years, at least 29% of people in the UK want to explore new destinations when they go on holiday, and a third want to use their time abroad to learn new skills.
Luckily, we have a range of exciting places to visit and exhilarating shore excursions that will have you returning home with some new tricks up your sleeve! We know that enriching holiday experiences are important for both your body and your soul, so we're going to run you through some of our exciting shore excursions.

Santorini, Greece

Royal Excursion: Active Volcano Hiking and Swimming in Hot Springs A trip to Santorini is exciting enough, but add a hike around an active volcano and a long soak in thermal hot springs, and you've got yourself quite the experience! Take a quick cruise over to Nea Kameni to climb to its summit. You'll really get your endorphins pumping before stopping for a breather and taking in the astounding views. Feel the heat of the sun on your back as hot steam rises from the active volcano underneath your feet. After your descent, you'll sail to nearby Palea Kameni where you can take a soothing dip in its warm, mineral-rich waters and enjoy a long soak. Finish off your day with a cable car trip over Santorini's largest town, Fira. You'll certainly fall into a deep sleep when you're back on the ship!

Off the Beaten Track

Activity: Santorini Bike Tours Exercise is great for your health, and cycling through the idyllic streets of Santorini is another way to make yourself feel great. Take in the luxurious scenery of the island whilst you get your heart rate pumping. There are plenty of different bike tours to choose from, with manual, or automated bikes that will do all the hard work for you. With an electric bicycle, you can take in your surroundings without worrying about the strain of getting up steep hills! You can travel with a guide, who will show you around and share their knowledge about the island, or you can choose to travel independently. If you want to get a unique perspective of the island and experience something new, then do it with a bike tour!

Cozumel, Mexico

Excursion: Push, Pull & Swim with Dolphins at Chankanaab National Park Swimming with dolphins is an experience that many long to do at least once in their lifetime. We offer an exhilarating dolphin encounter in the blue water of Cozumel's certified dolphin park. You'll get up close to these sociable mammals, and enjoy flips and tricks whilst you splash around with your new friends! Spending time swimming with dolphins alleviates stress, and we're sure you'll come out of the experience with a huge smile on your face (as well as a photo of you and your dolphin buddy!). Laughter is a proven stress buster, and the sea lion show is guaranteed to bring big laughs. Catch the show at the park and revel in their hilarious antics!

Off the Beaten Track

Activity: Cozumel Sea Turtle Conservation For those who want to spend some time on holiday giving something back, there are several organisations whose primary focus is the conservation of Cozumel's sea turtles. Visitors can volunteer to help monitor turtle nests, as well as release baby turtles into the sea! Joining biologists on Cozumel's pristine beaches as you release hatchlings into their natural habitat is a truly moving experience. Have a look at the available options to get involved when you're there.
