The price of travel normally rockets over bank holidays, but not in this instance. With this offer from Ocean World Travel, a 4-night cruise to Belgium, France and the Netherlands over the August bank holiday is now £249 per person, saving an impressive 45% on the usual price.
The sailing is aboard Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' Braemar, departing from Dover on 23 August.
After leaving Dover, the ship heads to Le Havre (for Paris), Zeebrugge (for Bruges) and Amsterdam, before returning to Dover, where the cruise ends.
Home to the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House, the 120-acre Vondelpark and more canals than Venice, Amsterdam was recently voted one of Lonely Planet's Top 10 Cities for 2013, while Le Havre, located in the northwest of France and a 2-hour drive from Paris, boasts several museums and historic buildings.

The price is based on two sharing a 2-bedded Cabin. Upgrade to an Outside Cabin for £50 more per person or a Superior Outside Cabin for £100 more per person.
Braemar joined the Fred. Olsen fleet in 2001 and received a complete facelift in 2008, including the addition of the Observatory Lounge, the Grampian Restaurant, a new swimming pool and the Morning Light, a Scottish-themed pub. The ship has a traditional feel with formal dinner at the two restaurants, the Thistle and the Grampian. Facilities include gaming tables, two Jacuzzis, a fitness centre, a beauty salon and a library.
