6 Perfect Cruises for Escaping Winter in the UK

Winter is dragging in the UK but I’m lucky enough to be sunning it up in Thailand, escaping the weather back home while I work in paradise.

It’s got me thinking, why have I never escaped soggy UK winters before? More people definitely should - I can say firsthand that it’s a fantastic experience!

So, I’ve taken to researching the best cruises to look forward to in the miserable and cold winter months. Whether you crave a bit of adventure in the Southern Hemisphere, some classic luxury on an island-hopping voyage in the Tropics, or simply somewhere to lie on a beach and enjoy the all-inclusive cruise lifestyle… I’ve got the best cruise for you!
