Cruise in luxury on Art Deco themed ship

The population can generally be split into two: those that have cruised and those that haven't. For those that haven't, the thought of cruising conjures up images of endless days at sea with little to do and sleepless nights plagued by sea sickness. However, holidaymakers who have used their cruise travel insurance often become hooked on this type of vacation, with many returning to the seas year after year.

One of the latest ships to hit the waters is the Queen Elizabeth, an opulent liner with an Art Deco theme throughout. With a sweeping central staircase and a Grand Lobby standing over three decks high, the ship is designed to provide passengers with a luxurious sailing experience. With over 2000 passengers when full and in excess of 1000 staff and crew, the vessel is home to more people than some villages back on the mainland. Despite the luxurious surroundings, it is essential that passengers arrange either over 65 travel insurance or more specific cruise travel insurance before sailing to ensure any mishaps are fully covered.

Modern ships no longer just expect passengers to be travelling on over 65 travel insurance, with an increasing number of younger passengers. The diversity of holiday makers is evident in the wide range of activities that many vessels now have on board. The Queen Elizabeth has a state of the art gym as well as a health spa for guests wanting to enjoy a relaxing massage or beauty treatment. For those wanting to try different things, the Queen Elizabeth has a ballroom offering salsa, latin or ballroom dancing lessons, as well as holding formal balls.

On the subject of entertainment, the Queen Elizabeth, like many other cruise ships, has its own theatre company with different shows available, including Shakespeare performances as well as musicals. And, of course, no cruise ship would be complete without the standard cabaret acts with everything from singers to comedy performers on show.
