Deciding on which cruise to take can be a minefield and that’s why Gemstone Travel a member of the TTA Cruise Club and your personal cruise concierge will help you navigate the many opportunities of cruising to find the perfect one for you.  We understand the anxieties and questions you may have if you’re new to cruising and so we give you the chance to join a taster cruise for a specially agreed price where you can experience fist-hand for yourself and satisfy many of your questions.  Equally as a seasoned traveller we’ll guide your selection to provide a balanced mix of sailing and shore experiences to meet your particular interests. 

Ocean cruises and Riverboat sailings have separate appeals and so it is here that our professional knowledge can be of value to you. Depending on the time of year you want to sail, the duration of your trip and whether you prefer a round trip or one way sailing  where you have the chance to enjoy a traditional land based holiday as well, we can tailor any holiday you desire. 

For sailing enthusiasts we offer windjammer sailings with no fixed schedule where the wind sets the course and the ports of call with the option of sailing for weeks at a time.
