The United Kingdom has been in the news lately for a number of reasons. Cruisers may have been following the quarrels of the Royals, but we bet the news that the UK would allow cruise ships to sail starting in May was a bit more important! Before you pack your Wellies and your bowler hat for a jaunt across the pond, remember that these cruises will be for United Kingdom residents only to begin with, but it’s a good start for the industry at the very least. For the first time in a year, we even had a cruise ship sail from an American port so it’s starting to look like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and things will be back to normal soon.
With the news that the U.S. Government is aiming for July 1st to have life back to relative normal, we’ve got three cruises leaving in July that would be perfect for your first vacation back at sea! It’s time to choose your cruise!
