Cruising and Walking - does Cruise & Walk offer the best of both worlds?

Thursday, January 30, 2020 - 12:30 to 13:15
Destinations London 2020 Schedule - Meet the Experts London - Meet the Experts - Theatre 2

Introduction

Moderated by cruise expert, travel journalist and TV presenter, Julie Peasgood the session will unravel the stereotypical views of both a cruise holiday and a walking holiday through a lively discussion with a panel of experts from Ramblers Walking Holidays ‘Cruise & Walk’ programme. They will discuss how the two come together successfully on board a selection of Fred. Olsen cruises visiting destinations as diverse as Scandinavia and the Canaries and the Indian Ocean to the Caribbean.

The conversation will also cover what to expect on board the cruise; how the walks ashore are arranged with an experienced walk leader and local guide and what groups are likely to see on the walks. There will be tips on what to pack for a combined cruise and walking holiday and how the walks are carefully graded so that cruise lovers can enjoy a more active pursuit on shore.
