WHY GO: A ca­sual yet el­e­gant coun­try club feel on­board means you don’t have to pack your ball gown or bib and tucker. The high ra­tio of pro­fes­sional Euro­pean staff to pas­sen­gers will en­sure you are looked af­ter very well in­deed. CON­TACT: Phone 0800 278 473 or www.ocea­ni­acruises.com
