Ports & Destinations

Cruising is so much more than just a fantastic ship and an epic on board experience. The chance to sample multiple destinations in one holiday whilst unpacking only once is a dream. 

Let’s explore!

One day in.... Port Guides

Time in port on a cruise itinerary is often very limited and with just one day available to explore a destination, it’s impossible to visit everything. I’ve created a series of guides focused on exploring a destination if your time is limited.

Large group shore excursions provided by the cruise line can sometimes be too rushed, too expensive or too structured. If you prefer to do your own thing in port or if you would like to start exploring more independently, then these guides are perfect for you. Not too prescriptive, not too basic. A perfect starting point for planning your own day ashore.
