8th June is World Oceans Day – Why Not Explore The Oceans in Luxury?

Endless OceanSee The Oceans In All Their Glory And Celebrate World Oceans Day

Celebrate World Oceans Day by taking to the water yourself. Booking a cruise is a great way to experience the majesty of these incredible sheets of water.

June 8th is World Oceans Day and it gives us the opportunity to celebrate one of the key factors in our very existence here on Earth. This year’s theme is very much devoted to improving the quality of our oceans and improving awareness of their importance in all of our lives. The strapline, “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet” says it all.

One of the best ways to grow your appreciation for our oceans is to take to them, and what better way to do so than with a luxury cruise. Spending time on the water will give you a greater sense of the ocean’s magnificence and increase your desire to preserve a part of our planet that we are still yet to fully understand.

The ocean that you choose will largely be influenced by the type of cruise that you wish to embark upon. Whether you prefer city breaks, relaxing on a tropical island or taking in the fabulous wildlife on show, you can find a cruise that matches your dream holiday.

Here we take a brief look at what you can expect from the five stunning oceans that we can explore. Each and every one has something different to offer, but they all have one thing in common – their magnificence.


Cross the Atlantic and see New York come into view just as many of the early immigrants would have done all those years ago, albeit in slightly more comfortable surroundings! The Queen Mary 2 is a popular vessel for this trip and she regularly sets sail from Southampton to the Big Apple.


If the hubbub of city life is not what you want from your getaway, then the Pacific cruise may be the perfect option for you. Take in the glorious island life and see this wonderful ocean from all angles to get a full appreciation of its magnificence. Take a look at Avanti Holidays and see what Pacific cruises they can offer.


Set sail for the sub-continent with an Indian Ocean cruise and see the majesty of this wonderful expanse of water up close. Take in the fabulous islands of the Seychelles and the Maldives before heading to the ports of Cochin and Mumbai for your own taste of paradise.


For those of you who have a passion for natural history, especially seabirds, the Southern Oceans (also called the Antarctic) offer a remarkable opportunity to indulge your passion. Take in the famous British outpost of the Falkland Islands and put yourself in amongst the diverse range of wildlife that is found there.


Experience the midnight sun and see the glaciers for yourself as part of a stunning tour of the Arctic. Despite its seemingly inhospitable climate and terrain, there is plenty of wildlife to be spotted here as well, with whales, seals and manatees all making regular guest appearances.

There you have it, the five oceans and a brief overview of the cruises that are available on them. Why not mark World Oceans Day by booking up a journey of a lifetime on one of these wonderful sheets of water? Whichever you choose, it is sure to be a trip that you’ll never forget.
