Any cruise-and-stay holiday gives you the chance to enjoy the best of both worlds, at sea you’ll visit several contrasting ports while on land you can immerse yourself in the culture and character of your chosen destination. You can stay on after your cruise for a variety of durations as well as the option of a few days before your cruise. There’s an abundance of accommodation in all types of resorts from beach locations for some serious chilling out to; vibrant cities such as New York and Miami; or that perennial kids favourite – Orlando.

Cruise and stay holidays can be a fabulous adventure if combined with an escorted land tour. As well as relaxing on deck and taking full advantage of all your cruise ship has to offer, you can up the ante by adding a land-based stay in such on-trend destinations as Alaska; the Caribbean; Oriental hotspots; or legendary resorts in the Mediterranean. Imagine having time to experience Las Vegas or the spectacular Canadian Rockies; the A-Lister hangouts in Barbados; frenetic cities like Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore; or decadent beaches and historic cities around Europe.

Royal Caribbean has an extensive range of cruise and stay packages. Each has been specially created to take all the hassle out of planning your ideal trip. All accommodation, flights and transfers, plus of course the cruise, add up to an amazing holiday experience. It’s hard to resist the 10-night ‘Miami Stay & Eastern Caribbean Cruise’ package while pester-power of the kids can be taken care of in one fell swoop on the 16-night ‘Orlando Stay & Western Caribbean cruise’ package.

Thomson Cruises created the cruise-and-stay concept when they introduced their first ship back in the mid-Nineties. Now as Marella Cruises, flexibility is the order of the day with ready-made holidays from a plethora of accommodation choices combined with flights from 22 UK regional airports. Cruise and Stay features 140 hotels - as well as the luxurious TUI Sensatori Collection - across ten destinations including Barbados; Corfu; Costa del Sol; Gran Canaria; Croatia; Dominican Republic; Jamaica; Majorca and Tenerife. Following a week-long cruise there are 3, 4, or 7-night stays in cherry-picked hotels or apartments. Alternatively there’s the option to do it the other way around and spend seven nights in a hotel before setting sail.
