Open and shut case: why the package holiday is back33h Open and shut case: why the package holiday is back
Cost, convenience and the Love-Island effect mean ready-made holidays are back in fashion, with giant operators Thomas Cook and Tui opening swish new hotels The last time I went on a package holiday France had just won the World Cup. It was 1998, the peak of the package’s popularity, and my mates and I celebrated the end of our exams with a week in Magaluf. We had a brilliant time but it wasn’t an experience I’ve ever felt the need to repeat – until now. Twenty years on, France have won the World Cup once again and packages seem tempting again. When I confess this, friends look at me askance and make jokes about piña coladas. One is moved to reminisce about her own youthful package holiday; she is still traumatised by the coach excursions.

The marshes, lagoons and salt pans of the Petite Camargue are a serene setting for a canal cruise, and the local rosé means the fun doesn’t stop once moored up Her name was Rio. Well, actually, it wasn’t. She was just a Vision 3 SL cruiser with three cabins and a kitchen. But as soon as we leapt aboard and ran around her top deck like excited children, we couldn’t help but think of Duran Duran’s cheesy 1980s video. So Rio she became.
