Hi, I am an ABTA travel agent who is now too decrepit for much sport but would like to put forward in idea I have been working on!
Embarking at one of the UK ports such as Southampton/Newcastle/Edinburgh/Greenock/Liverpool/Hull/Bristol/Harwich on one of the smaller cruise ships sailing and going to some countries with incredible running opportunities. I am picturing the crystal clean air of Scandanavia, the Norwegian Fjords,Iceland, Greenland & Lapland to name a few.
No flyng means you will be in better shape to start with!
Have a great days running and return to the luxury of your ship with great dining (from the healthy options menu of course!), work out in the fully equiped fitness centre/saunas & gymnasium.
Next day, do the same but in a different country - with no packing/unpacking of luggage and kit!
What I am after is any feedback from you with suggestions before I put the idea to the cruise companies and see what deals they can offer.
If a group gets together the cruise companies often offer perks such as free places, sole use of facilities & help with activities ashore.
Let me know your thoughts - a good idea - who is up for it?
We are not talking a fortune, an 8 day Fjords cruise for example is £449p/p when 2 share - less if there is 3 or 4 in the cabin!
