Set Sail With Beverley Travel In 2024

Beverley Travel have established themselves as a leading travel agency in recent times, having won the coveted ‘Number 1 Travel Agency in the UK’ award for 2023, and they have just been nominated again for the awards in 2024, as well as being recognised for their focus on cruise, for both ocean and river.

It is exciting times in the world of cruising. “Gone are the days when cruising was seen as the reserve of the upper classes, dressed up to ‘the nines’ every night. There really is now a cruise for everyone, from young couples, families and adults from all generations and usually offering equal or superior value to a land-based holiday compared with similar standards and inclusions”, says Karl Douglas, Co-Owner of Beverley Travel.

“In late January, Royal Caribbean will launch their ‘Icon of the Seas’, which will be the world’s largest passenger ship, although it’s well thought through design means that it will never feel like that whilst onboard, with different areas of the ship providing a different ambience for the wide range of guests aboard. It really will be a floating resort, taking it’s guests port to port to experience the local culture and excursions”, he adds.

Take one look at Royal Caribbean’s 270+ destinations, and thousands of on and off-board experiences - they seem to have thought of everything.

First up the new Icon of the Seas, a first-of-its-kind Royal Caribbean adventure arrives in January 2024 sailing from Miami.

Then get ready for the second Icon-class ship, Star of the Seas, bringing unbelievable thrills, chill, and wows for the whole crew, sailing from Port Canaveral, Florida, beginning August 2025.

Every ship is a pioneering paradise, including those closer to home sailing from Southampton, Barcelona or Rome. Whether it’s your first time or your fortieth, Royal Caribbean are always striving for new ways to perfect your paradise, wherever they sail.

The cruise industry is booming, with around 15 new ocean liners launched in 2023 and another 16 due to be launched in 2024, all with the latest technology to ensure maximum efficiency and a real focus on the customer experience. That’s without the plethora of new river going vessels, another part of the industry that is enjoying a huge uptick as people want to experience multiple destinations, with high quality dining and accommodations, minus the hassle of packing and unpacking.

Beverley Travel are proud of their independent status, “…this means we can provide the best cruise, or other travel options, solely based on what’s best for our customers and always at the best value, with amazing deals available for booking during the January ‘peaks’ sales season”, adds Kelly Cheesman, Co-Owner.
