All the comforts of home with cruises and the Channel Island's finest
Being able to sink into a fine bed with fresh clean linen at the end of a busy day is always a welcome relief. A comfortable bed is a wonderful creature comfort and, to be honest, you'd expect no less when you book a break on the high seas or indeed an idyllic holiday in one of Guernsey's finest establishments. Of course, you will receive all you're expecting and more! Choosing to vacation with NCL cruises is an experience of a lifetime and regardless of whether you choose high summer or Christmas as your chosen time to embark on a voyage, you're not going to be disappointed with the levels of comfort available aboard ship. Likewise when you book a break on the gorgeous island of Guernsey, you're going to be more than impressed with the levels of accommodation available at a many hotels, luxury apartments and self catering complexes. Flexibility is certainly the name of the game here with accommodation options to suit all tastes. Shipping lines like Princess cruises know all about flexibility and are well versed in tailoring packages to some of the world's most exclusive destinations. Choose to travel aboard their much vaunted Sapphire vessel and you will be greeted by a dazzling array of cabins and staterooms, many with ocean views and facilities beyond your wildest dreams. Accommodation is an important consideration on all styles of holiday and luckily, where Guernsey hotels and fine sea voyages are concerned, you'll receive the very finest.

"The food was absolutely superb, the crew members incredibly helpful and our fellow passengers really friendly. OK so our balcony was a bit cramped, as was the shower room compared to the Concierge Class on the Constellation but everything else was brilliant." - Gardner, Bournemouth on 19th May 2009 (P&O Cruises)
A hotel room or cabin with a view
Location, location, we're told so many times just how important this is. Of course, when you're aboard ship your geographical location changes every day, but choose a cabin or a stateroom with exceptional sea views and you'll be greeted by fantastic sunrises every day of your voyage. This scenario is what you can expect when you embark on Caribbean cruises of all descriptions. It's hard to imagine anything as inspirational as a sunset or sunrise with Grand Turk as a backdrop. But, closer to home there are some equally as stunning vistas to be enjoyed and nowhere more so than on the Channel Islands. Book your accommodation with a hotel in the locale of St. Peter Port and you could be treated to bedroom views of the fine local landscapes. Equally as stunning is a voyage aboard Cunard cruises which, as most of us are aware, have in The Queen Mary II what is quite possibly the grandest liner ever built. In terms of quality accommodation this can truly be described as ‘pushing the boat out' and it's an experience not to be missed! But for the ‘land lubbers' out there, if you're looking for flexible accommodation in a grand setting of equal standards to those found on P&O cruises, then Guernsey could well be the choice for you! Whether you enjoy the freedom of self catering or prefer a regular hotel experience this fine hotel region nestling near the seafront and shops could suit you down to the ground.

"This was a really nice short break. The ship is amazing with excellent service. The cabin was spacious with a sofa as well. The ice skating show was amazing other shows were ok." - Bonanno, Mellieha, Malta on 19th May 2009 (Royal Caribbean Cruises)
Everything on hand to make your stay a pleasant one
When you're looking to book accommodation for either a business trip or for your annual break, it's important that there are a whole host of amenities and facilities to make your stay a pleasurable one and this is something that MSC cruises has certainly taken into account. With accommodation ranging from the all encompassing deluxe suites with their king sized beds and lounge areas, to the more economical inside cabins, there's a plethora of accommodation options to choose from onboard their Melody vessel. And as far as dining goes, you can choose between the less formal Sunrise Terrace Restaurant and the more traditional Galaxy dining area. It's a similar story when you decide upon cruises from Southampton or top class accommodation near St. Peter Port – the facilities are second to none. The hotel not only offers friendly and attentive staff, but rooms bursting with amenities like Wi-Fi, a trouser press, TV, DVD and even luxury tea and biscuits in each room. As you'd expect from an establishment that has been run by the same family for nigh on a century, care and attention to detail is of paramount importance to these experienced hoteliers and when you visit for the first time this becomes all too apparent. Royal Caribbean cruises has a similar level of experience when it comes to taking care of their passenger's needs and all of their twenty two ships within their fleet are powered by state of the art propulsion systems making life onboard as smooth as silk!

"The midnight buffet was a sight to behold, it is certainly worth visiting early to enable the guest to photograph the buffet because afterwards it will be impossible to explain to friends and relatives back home just how splendidly it was presented and displayed." - Thomas, Stockton on 21st May 2009 (MSC Cruises)
Offering the best in their respective businesses
If you've never visited the picturesque island of Guernsey before, then you're in for something of a surprise! With breathtaking scenery and the financial centre of St. Peter Port all within a short walk, it really is an island full of surprises. By choosing the glorious and flexible hotel situated close to both, your stay is going to be enjoyable. From the quality dining experience to their DVD library, you'll feel right at home in the cosy atmosphere that this gorgeous establishment offers. And as beautiful surroundings go, Fred Olsen cruises have them in abundance! Onboard the homely Boudicca, you will find lounges and public areas with a British historical theme and cabins with plush furniture and invitingly deep bathtubs! In fact, this is similar to the surroundings you can find at one of Guernsey's finest and most respected hotels! Every established outfit tries to be the best in their respective industry and in terms of surroundings and ambience, both the hotel in Guernsey and celebrity cruises come very close to this. In fact as far as a holiday on the high seas goes, they draw many complimentary reviews for their consistently high levels of accommodation, service and of course entertainment packages. Just as the friendly and refined atmosphere is the major draw where a hotel on Guernsey is concerned, so the major attraction with this dazzling line are the professional and star studded shows they offer. From quality hotel accommodation to the best in ocean bound voyages, there's a world of possibilities.
