Newmarket Holidays makes cruising an affordable possibility

Newmarket Holidays For anyone looking for a relaxing break – or perhaps to view idyllic world locations from a unique perspective, cruising has a lot to offer. Newmarket Holidays has been in existence for 30 years and over that period, has built up a well-deserved reputation for excellent customer service and very good value. This reputation extends to the interesting selection of cruises available from Newmarket Holidays.

For anyone wishing to explore what’s available, the Newmarket Holidays website is a very useful starting point. There is a section of the website dedicated to cruises. Visitors to this site will also note that they are in safe hands with Newmarket Holidays. Not only do holidays come with full ATOL and ABTA protection where applicable, the company has also received recognition from within the travel industry for its high standards of customer care. This is in evidence from the fact that Newmarket Holidays has been the recipient of accolades from the British Travel Awards three years in a row (2011, 2012 and 2013). These awards are a particularly good indicator of good service given that they are voted on by ordinary members of the travelling public (rather than being based on the impressions of a handful of judges).

Visitors to the Newmarket Holidays website will also note that it is not necessary to spend thousands of pounds to sample the delights of a cruise experience. A good example of this is the Newmarket Holidays Christmas Markets Rhine Cruise. This particular Newmarket Holidays cruise gives customers the opportunity to explore the beauty of the enchanting Rhine Valley aboard a very special vessel, the MS Olympia. With accommodation and dining facilities for just under a hundred passengers, this particular vessel is very well appointed without being overwhelming in terms of size. With this particular cruise, Newmarket Holidays offers customers the opportunity to sample the delights of some of the very best spots on the Rhine, including Rudesheim and Koblenz. Newmarket Holidays also offers an optional extra excursion to Bonn.

As with everything on offer, this particular cruise from Newmarket Holidays represents very good value for money. It includes return coach travel from customers’ chosen pick up points to Boppard as well as three nights’ accommodation based on a standard lower deck cabin (with the option of paying for upgraded cabins). The river cruise ship also has a friendly, professional crew and cruise staff.
