Cruising is perhaps the most romantic form of travel.
Long before there were trains, planes and automobiles, adventurers and explorers set out to discover the world in ships. It was this seaborne exploration that truly opened up the world. Tales from the likes of Columbus, Cook, Dampier and Van Damien fired the imaginations of people for centuries.
With the tribulations of air travel getting worse by the day, the cruise market is enjoying a healthy resurgence as gentile, relaxed travellers enjoy destinations and experiences at a leisurely pace.
New ships are entering the market at a staggering pace. Huge mega-liners with ice skating rinks, shopping malls and expansive entertainment facilities transport thousands of holidaymakers to their dream destinations. But at the opposite end of the market, with small adventure and expedition vessels catering to just a hundred or so, is where the real excitement is.
This soft adventure segment is opening up previously unheard-of locations all around the world including the frozen Arctic, Antarctic, South Pacific and Australasia.
Here at Planet Earth, we'll serve you the entire menu of leisure, luxury and expedition products in the one location. Whether it's polar bears or pina coladas, we'll have it here for you. Enjoy.
