About us

Hays Cruise is a division of Hays Travel, the UK's largest independent travel agent. Our independence means we're perfectly placed to give you expert, impartial advice on cruise holidays - and find you great deals too. Our strong relationships with cruise lines means we are able to bring you excellent special offers, many of which are exclusive to us. 

Since we were established in 1980, we have watched cruises grow and change into the exciting holidays that they are today. With family-friendly ships, flexible dining and magnificent super-liners, cruises are now a wonderful, great value way to holiday. Our dedicated cruise specialists are real experts in their field, having travelled on many ships and itineraries themselves. They're passionate about cruise holidays and more than happy to share their wealth of knowledge and love for cruising with you. So, whether you're looking for the best way to spend your time in a port, or the most relaxing spa treatment on a ship, you only need ask.

 We offer cruises from the world's leading cruise lines. Each line has a unique personality and characteristics and there really is one to suit everyone. We know the best companies to cruise with if you've got children, the best if you're looking for an informal getaway and the best if you like things traditional and grand. Our huge range of cruises covers every kind of cruise holiday you can imagine, from short taster breaks to unforgettable, round-the-world adventures. We offer fly cruises beginning at ports around the world, as well as no-fly cruises that let you sail straight out of ports like Newcastle and Southampton in the UK. 

There are so many different kinds of cruise holidays available, from adults-only sailings to specialist foodie cruises. One of the most popular ways to sail in recent years is on an all inclusive cruise, where your drinks bill is settled before you've even left home. Look out for our special deals on all inclusive drinks packages, available on selected cruises. With Hays Cruise, you'll find fantastic deals on sailings to classic sunshine destinations like the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, as well as those to stunning, scenic places like Alaska and the Norwegian Fjords. Some of the most up-and-coming ports on the cruise scene are in the warm waters of the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf. 

If you can't decide between a cruise and a holiday on dry land, our tailor-made cruise and stay holidays give you the best of both worlds. There are endless options to choose from, but some of our recommended combinations include a transatlantic crossing coupled with a stay in New York, a Barcelona city break followed by a Mediterranean sailing, or a luxurious holiday to Dubai followed by a cruise on the Arabian Gulf. You'll find plenty of cruise and stay ideas here on our website, but we're happy to arrange your dream combination, especially for you. We've included as much of our cruise expertise and as many of our special offers as we can on this website, but we know sometimes you'd prefer to speak to someone to find out more.
