10 Cruise Deals From Ireland With Flights Included

Sarah Alex cruise

I’ve hand-picked some of my top cruise deals from Ireland to help you plan your next cruise holiday.

Why visit one destination when you can visit several? Cruise holidays offer you the opportunity to see multiple cities or countries on one trip, and you only need to pack and unpack once! They offer great value for money with meals and entertainment included in the cost, and there is a wide selection of cruise deals from Ireland to suit all tastes and budgets.

If you were following me last week you may know I was having the best time on Princess Cruises’ Sky Princess! Watch out for a dedicated post coming soon with lots of offers, but I had to share this one now – the price is too good not to! 

This super deal for next summer is cruising on Enchanted Princess – the sister ship of Sky Princess, it was actually launched afterwards so is even newer than Sky Princess!

4. MS Arena: Christmas Markets River Cruise, Flights, Hotel Stay & 4-Night Cruise, €799pp

river cruise deals from Ireland

While mega cruise ships get most of the media attention, river cruising is one of the fastest growing sectors within the cruise industry. They are a great introduction to cruising and ideal for people who may not want to cruise on crowded ships – river cruise ships carry an average of 150 passengers. 
 

 

 
Some of the advantages to river cruising over ocean cruising is that you have a different view each day. When you dock in a city, you can walk into the town centre without need for coaches or excursions.  They tend to attract an older clientele, although shorter itineraries such as Christmas market cruises can attract a younger age group.

Cologne Christmas markets cruise

I cruised on MS Arena overnight from Amsterdam, and while basic compared to 4-star ocean cruises, I found the food and service very good. It is a great way to try cruising without breaking the bank.
 

 

 
I found a great offer for a Christmas markets cruise which includes an overnight stay in Cologne. Price for flights, hotel stay and a four night cruise with all meals included on the 1st, 5th or 9th of December is €799 per person.
