Co-op Holidays Launches Cruise Site.

Co-op Holidays Direct
, Midlands Co-op`s on-line holiday service, has launched a new website dedicated to cruise holidays.

Co-op Cruise Holidays Direct
has a wealth of essential information for cruise enthusiasts as well as those not sure if a cruise is for them or not!

The site features detailed cruise itineraries with beautiful pictures of the cruise ships from leading tour operators such as Airtours and Thomson, news of early and late availability bookings, and fact sheets and booklets on different types of cruises so that the customer can decide what kind of trip is best for them. Cruises are also available from leading operators such as P&O Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Festival Cruises.

Naturally, cruises are quite different to holidays on dry land and instead of showing photographs of hotels and local culture, the website features web cams of the beautiful cruising vessels in passage allowing customers to look before they book. The site includes other useful cruise links with the latest news for the consumer on the cruise industry. A separate holiday search is also featured on the site, giving choice to those customers who also wish to search for package holidays. In addition, the site offers details on insurance options and the chance to opt-in to receive a regular, free email newsletter on the latest offers.

Co-op Cruise Holidays Direct is Midlands Co-op Travel`s dedicated cruise website. Midlands Co-op Travel is one of the UK`s largest independent travel agents with over 100 bricks-and-mortar outlets in addition to its direct and internet booking facilities.
