Fly Cruises

What is a fly-cruise?

A fly-cruise is a cruise with flights included in a package deal. You can fly from a choice of regional UK airports to the airport nearest to the port from which your cruise ship departs.

Many people who take fly-cruise holidays opt to extend their holiday with a hotel stay in the city which the ship departs from, either before or after their cruise. Here at Cruise118, we have a team of expert Cruise Concierge who will be happy to help plan every aspect of your holiday, finding the best deals on flights, cruises and, if you wish, hotels.

The prices quoted on this website are usually for London airports, but we will be happy to provide a quote from any airport of your choosing.

Popular destinations for fly-cruises


The most popular destination for fly-cruises is Barcelona - you'll find a huge range of sailings available from here, and it's easily accessible via UK airports. A less-popular option for cruises from Spain is Malaga, whilst cruises from France are available from Marseille. Many Eastern Mediterranean cruises sail from Italian ports such as Rome, Venice and Genoa or from Greek ports such as Athens. If you're looking to sail to Northern Europe or Scandinavia, you may wish to fly to Amsterdam or Copenhagen to start your cruise.

Middle East

The Middle Eastern cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi are popular ports from which to commence a cruise around the Persian Gulf or further afield to Asia. The year-round sunshine and wide range of tourist activities attract thousands of cruisers, many of whom extend their stay here before the cruise as part of their holiday.

USA & Caribbean

Fly to the west coast of America and you can enjoy a cruise from California's Los Angeles or San Francisco. From here you can cruise along the Californian coast, head west to Hawaii and the Pacific Islands or head north towards Alaska. Alternatively, you may wish to fly to New York on America's east coast and enjoy a few days in the Big Apple before heading to the Caribbean, Canada or even a transatlantic crossing back to the UK.

Many Caribbean cruises sail out of Florida. Here you'll find a range of ports including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral and Tampa. Whichever one you sail from, you may choose to extend your holiday to visit some of Florida's world-famous beaches, theme parks, water parks and museums. Alternatively, you may choose to start your Caribbean cruise in Barbados or Puerto Rico's capital, San Juan, and enjoy a week or relaxation as part of your holiday.

Rest of the World

Other popular ports to fly to in order to start an exotic cruise holiday include Hong Kong and Singapore. Many cruises start in one city and end in the other, and we'll be happy to arrange flights to suit this type of itinerary. Sydney, Australia is another port which features a number of one-way cruises, including half-world cruises back to the UK.

If sun-worshipping isn't your number one priority on holiday, you might choose to fly to Buenos Aires and head south for an Antarctic expedition, or how about Vancouver to start an Alaskan adventure?
