More and more people are looking to combine their hobbies with a holiday. Whether it’s a yoga retreat, a cycling adventure, a hiking trip or a food and wine tour, we are arranging more and more of these types of themed breaks.
So when I read that Cruise And Maritime Voyages are now offering Super Craft cruises I was rather excited. I love to craft and when I’m not booking holidays I can often be found card making or cross stitching. Not only is it a relaxing way to pass a few hours but it can be very social, with craft clubs springing up all over the place at the moment.
I was delighted to hear that with the growing popularity of arts and crafts, Cruise And Maritime now include creative sessions on all their cruises of five nights of more where specialists will demonstrate their talents. These may include skills such as millinery, bead jewellery, mosaic decoration, calligraphy or papercraft. Guests have the opportunity to purchase materials on board which will be supplied by the crafter for a modest charge. This has proved so popular with guests that Cruise And Maritime are now running Super Craft cruises where a variety of different crafting options will be available, along with highly skilled experts to help you develop your talents. On many of these cruises there is also a specialist photographer who can assist in improving your photography skills to help you get the most from your camera. You can come away at the end of your holiday having learnt a range of new skills and perhaps picking up a new hobby in the process.
Crusise & Maritime Voyages offer a more traditional and leisurely style cruising experience. Their smaller sized cruise ships are accessible to more ports of call, and they have departures from a choice of eleven ports around the UK. They offer exciting itineraries to an amazing array of destinations around the world. Guests love the excellent standard of friendly and attentive service, the on board entertainment, the quality dining experience, and the wide choice of wonderful shore excursions. They are almost exclusively adult only ships with just a couple of sailings being the exception and allowing children in August.
If you are a solo traveller then you will be welcomed on a Cruise And Maritime sailing. It offers a safe environment, with a special onboard singles programme of events to ensure you have the opportunity to meet like-minded travellers should you wish to do so. Each cruise has a set number of cabins set aside for single occupancy which are priced with up to 50% saving on the equivalent category full fares.
