WE’RE JUST THE TONIC…
Browsing through your new World of Cruising, you’ll probably spot a recurring theme. Health and wellbeing getaways are the hot global travel trend right now, with the wellness sector growing at more than twice the rate of tourism as a whole.
That’s why we’ve dedicated January’s magazine to the subject, packing it with cruises that offer health and fitness programmes, wholesome menus and wellness activities like yoga and Pilates.
But it’s not all calories and chakras – our Great Escape feature highlights the best voyages in the ever-popular Mediterranean, from North Africa to the Holy Land via France, the Italian Riviera and Greece. We also grab some time with cricket legend Mike Gatting on a European cruise, and we quiz TV wine expert Olly Smith on his food and travel passions.
This issue’s Travel Report explores the pros and cons of the latest onboard technology, and if you’re ready to book your first cruise of 2019 you’ll want to read our reviews of three fabulous ships – Saga Sapphire, Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ Columbus and CroisiEurope’s African Dream which takes us on an elephant adventure (p80).
With all this, plus our usual city guides and destination inspiration, we hope this new year’s issue puts a spring in your step!
