Five of the best royal inspired cruises

Any royalist will know how much the Royal Family love to travel, especially by sea, and it is said that some of Her Majesty the Queen’s favourite holidays were aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia. With the Royal Wedding earlier this year, royal themed travel is high on everyone’s bucket list – whether that’s sailing on board one of Cunard’s ‘Queens’ or embarking on a voyage to some of the Royals’ favourite destinations, there will certainly be something that appeals.

Here, Fran Hayden, Marketing Executive at ROL Cruise, looks at five of the very best royal inspired cruises so that you can receive the royal treatment on your exciting next cruise break.

Discovery Scottish Lochs, Islands & The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

This cruise from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines should excite any royalist – particularly when you note that you can follow in the footsteps of royalty and visit the famous Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh to discover what life was like on board Her Majesty the Queen’s floating royal residence. The main highlight of this beautiful eight night roundtrip cruise from Liverpool is a late night departure from Rosyth – gateway to Edinburgh – which gives you plenty of time to experience the Scottish capital’s International Festival and Royal Military Tattoo live and in person. Not only this, but with other destinations on offer such as pretty and colourful Tobermory and the intriguing city of Belfast, you’re sure to delight in this royal-themed cruise.
