Door-to-door convenience with Grand UK cruises
17th April 2014
Over-55s specialist Grand UK Holidays has introduced a free home pick-up service on its ocean cruise holidays in 2014.
Destinations for the cruise programme include the fascinating cities of the Baltic, majestic fjords of Norway and the warmer climes of the Canary Islands over Christmas and New Year.
Sales director Harold Burke said: “A home pick-up means your holiday starts in style when a driver arrives to collect you from your own front door and whisks you off to the port.
“It makes the whole holiday experience very convenient and relaxing as everything is taken care of, from collecting suitcases to navigating to the port and back.”
For 2014, Grand UK Holidays has again teamed with Cruise & Maritime Voyages to offer cruises onboard Marco Polo, which is a favourite with the operator’s clientele.
Offering a traditional cruise experience, the vessel accommodates 700 guests and 70% of its cabins have an ocean view.
There are two sailings for the Baltic Cities & St Petersburg cruise, which offers the chance to explore cities which were once locked behind the Iron Curtain.
The cruise visits the Estonian capital Tallinn, Finland’s capital Helsinki, and Russia’s St Petersburg, as well as Copenhagen in Denmark and Stockholm in Sweden.
It costs from £999pp for 12 nights.
There are three cruises to the fjords of Norway, offering the chance to view the dramatic scenery at different times of year. They start at £489pp for six nights in May, with other sailings and itineraries available in July and September.
Other cruises include ‘Scandinavian Cities’, which takes in Helsingborg, Copenhagen and Oslo (eight nights from £649pp), and a ‘Christmas & New Year Cruise’, visiting Gibraltar, the Canary Islands, Oporto in Portugal and Funchal in Madeira (14 nights from £1,249pp).
