“This is an area we are continuing to grow and invest in through the strong relationships we have built with our airline partners.

“Our customers love that they have the choice of joining a cruise directly from the UK in Southampton or booking one of our fly-and-cruise holidays which offer a huge range of holiday destinations.”
