Regular readers will know that I absolutely love cruise holidays. Whether it’s discovering the Caribbean with the delightful and beautiful Disney Dream (and being featured on Disney’s Facebook page, that was a massive highlight), or cruising around the coast of Europe whilst simultaneously stuffing my face on dazzling Britannia, the sheer diversity of cruise holidays draws me in. What other holiday can you take where you can explore several different destinations in one hit without having to pack and unpack your suitcase. You don’t even have to fly!
I’m proud to have the opportunity to write for gorgeous, glossy Cruise International every so often (you can see my articles here), and although I hate the whole vote begging thing that goes on every year for these sort of awards, so I absolutely love the way that Cruise International does it, offering the chance to be entered into a draw to win fabulous prizes for everyone that takes the time to vote. This year, there are two incredible prizes:
Visiting Cuba is very high on my travel bucket list right now, and Celestyal’s Crystal would be the perfect way to explore – being slightly smaller (just 480 cabins) it can dock in ports that other ships can’t. I also love that the ship features Cuban food and entertainment on board too, so you’re completely immersed in Cuban culture for your whole trip. You can wander the streets of Old Havana, walk in the footsteps of the original pirates of the Caribbean in Cienfuegos, discover the art and architecture of Santiago de Cuba, and even drop in on lush, colourful Jamaica.
If the chance of visiting Cuba isn’t enough, there’s also the chance to win a set of three Bric’s Bellagio suitcases worth £1500. I love the Bellagio line, especially the elegant Tuscan leather detailing. So retro, and proper heirloom pieces that will stay in the family for generations.
So what do you have to do?
