Cycling Cruises on board Ocean going ships have many advantages over the usual cycling holiday. First we have the benefit of visiting many places during a cruise, and you will be with like minded people. You can ride some of the routes from Le Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia all within a week if the itinerary fits without having to take flights, arrange accommodation and then the task of getting there. There is also a lot to do once on board, along with the on board entertainment, use of the pool, fully equipped gyms with the latest technology, or the Spa for that post ride massage or have a sit in the Sauna or Steam room.

The stateroom accommodation is very different to the cycling hotels and guest houses many of us have stayed in on past cycling holidays. Most cruise lines offer complimentary Room Service if you don't want to leave you cabin. Then there is the food element, with many choices of Restaurants on board, you most certainly won't be dreading the next meal, and the chefs will take into consideration many dietary needs.
Although you might be getting some early nights in if you have an early start the next day, all of the entertainment is free. There are bars and specialty restaurants to enjoy.
And finally if you have a non cycling partner, they can come too. Whislt you ride they can enjoy the cruise.
