Your Last Bank Holiday

The August bank holiday is fast approaching, and as it’s the last one of the year (apart from Christmas and New Year’s Day), it’s the perfect opportunity to sneak in a quick holiday. Our mini cruises are a great way to make the most of a three-day weekend – here are just a few reasons why.

Transport is covered

When planning a holiday, you usually have to think about how you’ll get to your destination and travel between places, but with a cruise, all your transportation is covered. Choose from our options that include flights and you won’t even need to worry about getting to the port. This gives you more time to think about the things that matter, like how many pairs of shoes you’re going to pack!

Visit multiple destinations

No matter which type of cruise you go on, you’ll get to visit multiple destinations along the way, giving you the chance to explore exciting new places and meet new people. Our four-night Kaohsiung & Taipei Cruise sets sail from Hong Kong, makes two stops in Taiwan (Kaohsiung and Taipei) and finishes up back where it started. And that’s just one of our mini cruise itineraries! You can choose destinations from all over the world, from the Bahamas to Australia and everywhere in between.

No time is wasted

The reason you can visit so many places in so little time is because our ships cruise while you sleep, so no time is wasted. While our longer cruises may spend several days at sea, our mini cruises go from one destination to the next, while you and your family are tucked up in bed. Each morning you’ll wake up in the port of a different city, making every day a whole new adventure. Explore beautiful Bruges by boat. Explore beautiful Bruges by boat.

Only unpack once

The great thing about taking a cruise holiday is that, while you’ll get to see lots of different places, you won’t have to change accommodation even once. All of our ships house many accommodation options, from Interior Staterooms to Royal Loft Suites, so you can pick the perfect space to call home for a few days. Whether you take a four-night Bahamas cruise or a three-night Brazil cruise, you’ll only have to unpack once, and because you won’t have to think about moving around, you’re free to pack as much as you want.

Everything you need in one place

Our ships come equipped with everything you could ever need while on holiday, which is ideal for a short trip. Run out of baby formula, or suffering from the sniffles? We can help. We’ve designed our ships to give our customers spectacular experiences, without forgetting about everyday needs. Visit Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo as part of our Brazil cruise.

Exciting shore excursions

It seems ridiculous to spend longer planning a trip than you actually spend on the trip itself, but it can often seem like this when you’re organising a short holiday. At Royal Caribbean we’re firm believers in making the most of your time away, which is why we offer unique shore excursions that you can pre-book well in advance of your holiday. You won’t have to plan what you’re going to do or how you’re going to get there, as we’ll do all that for you.
