Cruise feom the Uk to the Maldives?

Hi folks,

Does anyone know where I can book a cruise that actually leaves from the UK and goes all the way to the Maldives, stay 10-14 nights and then cruise back?

Thanks

Hi Juice, you would probably get a better response on TA's other site Cruise Critic. It specialises in Cruises ;-)

I can't imagine it. Because typical cruise liners for the UK are huge and hold thousands of people and as the Maldives are so Shallow I don't think these can go there?

So the typical cruise/dive boats in the Maldives are much smaller i think (<100) and I'm not sure you would get one of these leaving UK waters

Plus you would waste time travelling.

So the normal option is to fly to the capital and get on a boat.

Looks like Blackwatch (Fred Olsen) does one from Southampton, but visits as part of a 80 day cruise.

There are several large cruise liners that come for a day visit in high season. Nautica is one of them, but you'd have to join the whole cruise itinerary. I'm guessing you don't like flying?

Unless you fly you wouldn't be able to get here unless you can take a very long holiday and cruise on one liner and hope another one coming in a couple of weeks later and cruise back but I don't think this will happen. Dread to think the cost of this!

Yep we don't like flying :-).

You raise some good points everyone, so thanks. Looks like somewhere else then.

Maybe Cape Verde or Morocco.
