Why Cruise will Always Beat Package Holidays

Tuesday 2 January 2024

Ambassador Cruise Line ship in Norwegian port

If you’re looking for your summer 2024 holiday, then you might instantly think you want a package holiday that offers all-inclusive food and drink in a stunning sunny location with a plethora of activities to enjoy. But cruising can offer you all those things and much more.

Cruises are a great way to enjoy a holiday and see beautiful parts of the world, and there are a plethora of benefits to a cruise holiday that you wouldn’t get on a standard package holiday. In this guide, we take you through some of the benefits of a cruise holiday and why we think a cruise is the best way to enjoy your next getaway.

Why a cruise holiday beats a package holiday:

  • Getting to a cruise holiday is easier

  • You can visit multiple locations in one trip

  • The entertainment is West-End quality

  • A multitude of food options

Getting to a cruise holiday is easier

With Ambassador Cruise Line, getting to your next cruise has never been easier. We specialise in no-fly cruises, meaning you never have to travel far to your departure destination. Cruising benefits also allow you to avoid delays and long queues that you might experience at airports, as well as long waits and delays. Those boarding our cruise ships can enjoy the facilities as soon as they board our ships.

Some of our recent guests have commented on the local departure ports and how this makes the process smooth and simple: “Brilliant cruise. Local departure meant embarkation was so quick and we were in our cabin having a Prosecco within minutes.” – LB.

With Ambassador, you can sail from London Tilbury, Falmouth, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Liverpool, Belfast, Dundee and Bristol

You can visit multiple locations in one trip

One of the main benefits of a cruise over a package holiday is the fact that you’ll get to visit multiple destinations and ports of call as opposed to one location. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a shorter British Isle cruise or an around-the-world expedition, you’re always guaranteed the opportunity to explore a range of amazing places.  

The entertainment is West-End quality

We’re not shy when it comes to boasting about the West-End quality entertainment on board Ambience and Ambition. No matter what time of the day, there is always something happening, whether it is live music, a craft workshop, a quiz, musicians in one of our wonderful bars or one of the spectacular shows in the Palladium. Our performers are all incredibly talented

“Ambassador you go above & beyond! Every tiny detail is looked after, food & staff are amazing, shows are fantastic, and the rooms are spacious and kept very clean. The ship adds a touch of class to the seas.” – TJ.

A multitude of food options

Although food is often in plentiful supply when you’re on an all-inclusive package holiday, a cruise holiday offers so many options when it comes to restaurants and different cuisines that you can choose from. Whether you want to enjoy a relaxed meal in Borough Market, want to dress up for a meal in the Buckingham Restaurant or fancy an Indian meal in the Saffron restaurant, your options are vast.

“From start to finish everything was well organised, things ran smoothly embarkation & disembarkation was no problem. Everything was explained clearly to passengers all through the cruise. The ship was kept beautifully clean throughout, day and night crew were cleaning.” – LG.

Unforgettable staff

The staff you experience can make or break a holiday and nothing goes further than a smile. Our friendly and attentive staff are what makes Ambassador the exceptional cruise line it is today. Not only do they offer a friendly welcome, but they are also on hand to help with any questions and requests you may have whilst you’re enjoying your cruise. Attentive service with a smile is what our staff do best, and they can’t wait to welcome you on board to experience the warmest welcome at sea

“Loved the upgraded cabin. All the staff were exceptional and friendly, from the cabin boy, waiters, servers, and entertainment staff we enjoyed them all. The food was exceptional also!” – G.
