  • Amsterdam. Spend the daytime exploring this great canal city, taking in famous sights such as Anne Frank’s house, or simply relaxing and enjoying the scenery with a crisp Dutch beer.
  •  

  • Bruge. Wander the quaint cobbled streets and take in some impressive architecture, or while away your afternoon in one of the many cafes devouring some Belgian waffles!

    The Ship: Marella Discovery

     

    Designed to give plenty of opportunities to cruisers who are looking to let loose and have fun, Marella Discovery is stock full of activities and entertainment choices. Challenge yourself in the onboard escape room, take on the climbing wall, or try your luck in the casino for starters.

     

     

    There is also a wealth of choice where cuisine is concerned too. The main restaurant, 47 Degrees, can always be relied upon to offer a range of great meals, or speciality venues include the Sushi Bar, Surf & Turf Steakhouse, and Kora La, a pan-Asian restaurant.

    Watching the World Cup on a Cruise

    6th June 2018

    World Cup season is right around the corner once again, and football fans that are due to be cruising during the month-long season have probably begun wondering how possible it will be for them to watch the games. If you’ll be on a cruise during the world cup, rest assured that most of the mainstream lines will be screening the matches onboard.

     

    P&O Cruises

     

    The nation’s favourite cruise line will be showing world cup games onboard on their sports channel – Sports 24. Not only this, but they are actually offering an exciting Baltics cruise which includes a stop in St Petersburg while games are held there.

    What our customers say


    "I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

    "So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
