Potter around California with Princess Cruises
It’s difficult to know what to wear on a cruise sometimes. Dust off the dinner jacket and hope it still looks as great as the day you bought it? Hotfoot it to the department stores to pick up a bunch of snazzy new frocks? Is all that finery even necessary?
Here to streamline the sartorial decisions is Princess Cruises. They have unveiled plans for a one-off Harry Potter themed cruise. And all guests are encouraged to don appropriate fancy dress. The four-night cruise of the Californian coast departs from LA in November. Prices start from $650 and include food, lodging, entertainment and activities. Chances are that quidditch is off the cards, but you may want to keep your peepers peeled for Lord Voldemort.
Kids love Disney cruises, but there’s plenty for grownups too
How do you fancy holidaying with some of the most famous children’s story characters of all time? Set sail with Disney and the little ones can grab a hug with Minnie Mouse, share a joke with Donald Duck or settle a few scores with Captain Hook. Kids love it. And the water slides that make up the various on-board pools are great for making a splash.
But it’s not all about the children. Drop the kids off at one of the various age-appropriate youth clubs and you can enjoy some you time. Disney’s entertainment programme includes original Broadway style shows as well as nightclubs and lounges with live music. Want to be good to mind and body? Head for the high-end spa and fitness facilities and work up a sweat before rewarding yourself with some high-end pampering. Bliss.
Disney has a total of four ships. Their itineraries take in the best of Europe, the Mediterranean, North America and the Caribbean.
