Cruises from the UK - Top 5 Destinations

By AdeleTuesday 31st December 2013

Cruises from the UK


Are you looking forward to escaping the grey skies of the UK for some warm sun and great beaches? Our cruise ships sail directly from the UK to many great destinations across the world, from the picturesque beaches of the Canary Islands to the fascinating history and architecture you’ll find in Russia. Here’s Royal Caribbean’s top 5 destinations for cruises sailing from the UK – enjoy!


Canary Islands

Only a short distance from the UK, The 7 islands that make up the Canaries are surrounded by clear sea and sunshine. Meander along the harbour of Tenerife, and enjoy a delicious seafood feast at one of the many restaurants available. For a bit of fun take your kids to the forest at Garajonay National Park in La Gomera, or to the lava flowing volcanoes of Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote.


Italy is famous for ice cream, pizza and the Tower of Pisa, and although those things are great fun there’s a lot more of Italy left to be explored. You and your kids can take a stroll around the weird and wonderful Bomarzo Monster Park in Rome, where you’ll find stone carvings of gargoyles, ogres and dragons. Go if you dare! For something different, check-out The Galileo Museum in Florence. This museum of scientific break-through is a great chance for your kids to interact with science; they’ll even get to look through the telescope that Galileo used to discover the planet Jupiter  pretty cool!


Known most for its beautiful beaches, the city of Algarve is the perfect destination for a family holiday. Swimming in the sea, racing each other down super-fast slides, and watching incredible dolphin shows at Zoomarine – your kids will never get bored! If you’d rather take a look around Portugal and its scenery you and your family can rent out bikes locally, and peddle along the narrow roads beside the coastline. Fancy a night out? Check-out Lisbon and Porto, both great cities for nightlife with a lot of friendly bars, restaurants and nightclubs to choose from – and delicious cocktails!


Marvel at the Church of the Saviour and the many other impressive pieces of architecture which fill the Russian city of St. Petersburg. Alternatively, take your kids along to the St Petersburg Zoo where they’ll get to ogle at polar bears, tigers and all sorts of unusual reptiles. The city is also home to a Dino Park, where your kids will get to ride on exciting rollercoasters and pose for photos with their favourite dinosaurs!


With such beautiful views surrounding this magical country, it would be a shame to let it pass you by, we recommend renting some bikes or putting on your walking boots to make sure you get the most out of your visit to Norway. Another great way to explore Norway is by a Fjord Cruise, where you can sail along the ice cool crystal waters, and admire the mountainous landscape. If you and your kids want something a bit more exciting, why not take them on a sea life safari where you can whizz across the sea and search out the fascinating animals that inhabit the water below you.
