Christmas countdown – Cruise Shopping Spree’s
It is that time of year, the kids have gone back to school, the nights are getting fresher and the shops already have the tins of Quality Street in, there is no getting away from the fact we are now on Christmas countdown, love it or hate it is going to spread all around us. Here in the UK we have had our last bank holiday until Christmas is upon us, with the exception of Halloween and Bonfire night there is really not much else in the shopping/marketing diary so as the stores fill with Christmas products there is no getting away from it! Less than 100 days to go ……
So are you one of those people who carefully plan and start buying for Christmas now, spreading the cost over a few months or like me, leave it until the last minute and have a mad spree?
You have many options for Christmas shopping these days with many larger towns having Christmas Markets, last year I went to Winchester Christmas Market in December and although it was a typical grey mizzily day I really enjoyed it, very Christmassy feel. Which got me thinking of the other options available for my Christmas Shopping spree, maybe a European Christmas Market, with many cruise lines offering mini cruises to Bruges what a perfect way to do the Christmas shopping and have a bit of me time.
P&O have some silly prices on their saver fares at the moment for November a 2 Night Mini Cruise to Bruges is available from £129 per person. (16th November).
Of course with any browsing you do for available cruises you look at the well what if I go a bit further and for a bit longer and I think I have found the ultimate Christmas shopping cruise trip.
The shopping heaven that is NEW YORK, arh but what about limited luggage allowance on flights which limits you to a suitcase, well fly out to New York, spend a few days exploring this fabulous city and shopping until you drop, then cruise back with no worries on luggage allowance in comfort and style on Cunard’s QM2, the iconic liner built specifically for transatlantic voyages.
For just £1199 per person at the moment you can fly to New York direct from London, have 3 nights hotel in Manhattan and then 7 nights on board chillaxing and exploring this fantastic ship with the white star service Cunard is renowned for in a Balcony Stateroom, bargain !! And do all your Christmas shopping in style. This is based on departing the UK on the 16th November and arriving back into the UK on the 26th.
Cunard QM2 7 night’s voyage includes amazing dining, white star service and the opportunity to travel in comfort with no jet lag worries!
Or why not buy a cruise as a Christmas gift, from 2 nights to 120 nights there is a cruise for every taste and budget.
