Cruise banana routes to Caribbean islands.
Four fruit-carrying ships sail from Sheerness in Kent to Marin in Spain and then across the Atlantic Ocean to the Dominican Republic, Panama and Costa Rica.
The 9,500 mile round-voyage takes 28 days. Passengers are accommodated in four spacious and comfortable double cabins with a fridge, TV and video player and en-suite facilities.
In port there is a chance to go ashore for sight-seeing whilst the boat loads up with bananas.
The voyage, including a call at Zeebrugge in Belgium on the return journey, costs pounds 1,700 per person with no single occupancy supplement and bookings are made through Cargo Ship Voyages of Hemley, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP12 4QF (tel 01473 736 265).
Big game in Africa
MENTION Africa and your first thought is of wildlife safaris through the game parks.
But there's game of a different kind that is attracting more and more visitors each year.
It's golf. Wild Africa Safaris (01483 579991) is offering a seven-night golfing holiday on the Cape for pounds 837 a head.
It's based at the Erinvale Hotel, beneath the Helderberg and Hottentots Holland mountains in the Cape Winelands.
There's golf on the Erinvale Estate itself and it's also the perfect base to explore other Cape courses.
The price includes seven nights' bed and breakfast in shared twin rooms, British Airways flights and transfers.
