Cruises over bank holidays always command a premium as they allow you to save on your holiday allowance. This deal from Ocean World Travel bucks the trend: £599 per person for a 7-night sailing to Spain and France including the spring bank holiday.
Plus, the deal comes with a free double-category upgrade to a Balcony Stateroom, saving up to £200 on the regular price. The cruise departs from Southampton on 24 May and includes accommodation, meals and snacks.
Adventures of the Seas sails to Vigo, the gateway to Spain's Galicia region, which is praised by Lonely Planet for its "wild beaches and arguably the best seafood in Europe". The ship then continues its journey to Gijon. There, take a walk down Cimadevilla, the seafront promenade, to Parque La Atalaya and enjoy views of the port.
The following port of call is Bilbao, where passengers can visit the Guggenheim Museum, housed in a striking modern building. The last stop is Le Havre (France) from where transfers to Paris and all its marvels will be available for a supplement. The ship then return to Southampton.
Adventure of the Seas is a large ship with lots of family-friendly amenities including a rock-climbing wall, an ice rink and a 24-hour ice cream parlour. There are also three swimming pools, a basketball court and the ShipShape health spa, complete with a fitness centre and treatment rooms. In terms of dining, there's a 3-tiered main dining room, Johnny Rocket's 50s diner and the more upscale Italian-themed Portofino. Click here for more information.
Travelzoo tip: As this cruise is part of a wider Royal Caribbean sale that ends once 1000 cruises are sold, it's best to book early.
