If you’re looking to embark on a cruise from the UK without needing to fly to the starting point, there are several cruise lines to consider. Many offer no fly cruises, which mean you can simply travel to the port (often by car or train) and set sail without the need for any flights. Some of the cruise lines that offer no-fly cruises from various UK ports include:

  • P&O Cruises: This is one of the UK’s leading cruise lines and offers many cruises departing from ports like Southampton.
  • Cunard Line: Known for its iconic transatlantic voyages, Cunard also offers cruises departing from Southampton.
  • Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines: With a fleet of smaller ships, this line often departs from regional UK ports like Liverpool, Newcastle, and Rosyth (near Edinburgh).
  • Saga Cruises: Catering specifically to passengers over 50, Saga offers no-fly cruises from the UK.
  • Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV): This line was known for its value-oriented no-fly cruises from various UK ports. However, as of my last update in 2021, CMV had gone into administration, so you would need to check the current status of this cruise line.
  • Marella Cruises: While they do offer many fly-cruises, they also have some departures from UK ports.
  • MSC Cruises: Occasionally they offer cruises departing from the UK.
  • Ambassador Cruise Line: Ambassador Cruise Line is a new UK-based cruise line that was launched in May 2021. It was formed by several former employees of Cruise & Maritime Voyages

Many of these cruise lines offer voyages to destinations such as the Norwegian fjords, the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, the Baltics, and around the British Isles, among other locations.

Remember, when considering a no fly cruise, the range of destinations might be somewhat limited compared to fly-cruise options, as the latter allows you to start your cruise from a wider variety of global ports. Also, be sure to check the most current offerings and schedules, as the cruise industry is dynamic and itineraries can change.
