A FREE travel event will dock in Belfast this weekend.
Oasis Travel’s biggest ever Northern Ireland Cruise Fair will see hundreds of travel lovers descend on Titanic Belfast.
The event, which will take place on Saturday September 19, is set to give would-be travellers a taste of life afloat.
Cruising has has become one of the most popular and fast-growing contemporary vacation choices.
This event will be suitable to those who are new to cruising as well as the seasoned cruise aficionados.
Alongside the presentations and advice from experts from the world of cruising there‘ll also be themed entertainment to get visitors in sea-faring mood.
Steering the show is Sandra Corkin, Managing Director of Oasis Travel said: “Titanic Belfast is a hugely popular shore excursion for thousands of international visitors who make Belfast a port of call on their cruising holidays, so, when we outgrew our former locations, it seemed a perfect new venue for our annual Cruise Fair.
“This is a venue which allows us both to tap into Belfast’s rich maritime heritage and, at the same time, associate ourselves with Titanic Quarter which is one of the world’s most ambitious and exciting urban-waterfront regeneration projects.
“Titanic Belfast is an iconic building in the city and a great backdrop for the 2015 Oasis Travel Cruise Fair – it’s an added bonus that Cruise Fair attendees get the chance to see the venue’s replica Titanic staircase.”
Fifteen cruise operators will be exhibiting at the free event, many promoting discounts and special value offers exclusively available at the Fair, which comes hot on the heels of National Cruise Week 2015.
Sandra added: “From formal presentations on leading cruise lines and international destinations to one-to-one consultations, we have an approach to suit every traveller. We also have a host of entertainments and attractions to emphasise the fun and atmosphere of cruising.
“Amongst those features will be a Cruisewear Fashion Show, live music, light refreshments and even salsa dancing demonstrations for those who love to shimmy their cares away.”
There’s also a chance to win a Mediterranean cruise for two for 7 nights with Norwegian Cruise Lines via a raffle in aid of The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity, which helps hundreds of children suffering from cancer and blood disorders, treated at the Children’s Cancer and Haematology Unit at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.
