Cruise or Stay – Why not do both?

Cruise or Stay – Why not do both?
5 top ‘cruise and stay’ trips of a lifetime from e-travel

For many holiday makers the choice between land and sea is a difficult one. What's better, a resort or a cruise ship or a city?  Do you want to enjoy the comfort and amenities of a cruise ship and wake up in a new port every day ready to explore a whole new destination? Or would you rather sunbathe at the pool or beach and sleep in a luxurious hotel room?  What about an exciting city break to New York, Las Vegas or Dubai or travel further than your wildest dreams?  Why not have it all?

Cruising is becoming increasingly popular with Irish holidaymakers with over 40,000 people expected to hit the high seas by the end of 2016.   From top-deck picnic lawns and sky-skimming viewing pods to planetariums and vertical-drop water slides, cruise ship design has reached a whole new level as shipping companies go to extremes to attract passengers. However, many people also like to feel the land or sand beneath their feet for longer than the normal cruise excursions allow or spend a few days exploring a new city.
