Llanelli Star - - Get Away -

CRUISES STILL FLOAT OUR BOAT

THE rise of cruise hol­i­days is set to con­tinue into 2019 – and younger trav­ellers are look­ing to head up the gang­way. One in 12 Brits went on one in the last year, and two-fifths are keen on head­ing to sea for the first time, with most in­ter­est com­ing from 18 to 24-year-olds (53%).

The find­ings are a key part of travel as­so­ci­a­tion Abta’s re­cent Travel Trends 2019 re­port which high­lights the seem­ingly un­stop­pable growth of the cruise. It says that as the range of des­ti­na­tions across the globe ex­pands so too does the va­ri­ety of cruises and ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer, in­clud­ing well­ness, food and ex­pe­di­tions.

READY TO ROCK IN THE MAL­DIVES

THERE is no short­age of swanky places to stay in the Mal­dives, but now there’s an­other heav­enly re­sort to tempt you to the In­dian Ocean. Set to open in March, the Hard Rock Ho­tel, lo­cated in the stop-in-your-tracks Em­bood­hoo La­goon, will of­fer 178 rooms and over­wa­ter vil­las, a Rock Spa and, of course, lots of nods to mu­sic with mem­o­ra­bilia on dis­play through­out. See hardrock­ho­tels. com for more in­for­ma­tion.

HAVE A WHALE OF A TIME

BRI­TAIN’S first Whale Trail will launch in Scot­land next sum­mer.
