There's a growing demand for low-cost, no-fly cruise holidays in the UK. While Southampton remains Britain's leading transatlantic cruise port, several smaller ports also offer cheap cruise deals
to places like the Baltic and Mediterranean - often on big, prestigious cruise vessels.
Royal Caribbean International, for example, has regular Baltic Cruises from Harwich on the Jewel of the Seas, a superliner able to accommodate up to 3,360 passengers. Costa and Voyages of Discovery also depart from this port, to destinations in northern Europe, Scandinavia, the North Cape, the Baltic and the Mediterranean.
Booking Baltic cruises from Harwich removes all the hassle of going abroad. There are no baggage restrictions or delayed departure times, and with ample parking at the port it's completely simple to get on board. You will also have no worries about being seperated during the journey.
Flying these days has become an ordeal, what with big airport crowds, along with long delays and cancellations to content with; however this is not the case with cruising. Nothing beats the sound of your ship's horn, as you sail majestically out of port en route to destinations like Helsinki, Copenhagen and St Petersburg.
Harwich International Cruise Port is becoming one of the leading ports for cruise departures, after Southampton. Located on the east coast, with fast links to London, the South East and the Midlands, it is accessible by rail or road, with shuttle buses into town. The 20 check-ins are staffed by knowledgeable, friendly personnel.
The Royal Caribbean Line handles the majority of Baltic cruise deals from Harwich
. The Jewel of the Seas is ported here from May to November, with cheap cruise deals to Scandinavia and Russia of 12 nights, there and back. If you want slightly longer at sea, Voyages of Discovery do 18 and 22 night cruises to the Baltic, Arctic and Iceland.
Harwich is one of a number of ports offering cheap cruise deals to Baltic destinations. Others include Newcastle, Dover, Tilbury, Liverpool and Southampton, with Fred Olsen being the most widespread cruise line in the provincial ports.
