Expedition Cruises

Cunard Queen Mary 2 ship on the Atlantic

Journeys to the Arctic and Antarctica are the epitome of  expedition cruises and offer you a truly memorable experience in remote and incredible corners of the world.

Gaze in awe at majestic fjords and glaciers of the Arctic and experience the jaw dropping sight of glaciers and giant iceberg-filled bays amongst the mountainous terrain of the Antarctic Peninsula.

The abundant wilderness offer the opportunity to spot rare birds like the Atlantic yellow-nosed albatross, soaring and sweaping low until their wing feathers almost touch the tip of the waves, and humpack whales with their huge black tailfins peaking out as they dive down into the water.

Yacht Cruises

MS Il Mare in Croatia

Glide through the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic on board an exclusively chartered yacht. A typical day on board a luxurious yacht cruise might involve lounging on the sun deck listening to the calming waves with your morning coffee as you arrive at a charming coastal town. Then perhaps a dip in the crystal-clear water or visit to a local landmark before sampling some traditional cuisine and a glass of chilled wine at a nearby restaurant.

Our yachts, carrying up to just 40 passengers, cruise from Venice, Dubrovnik and Split and a full programme of fascinating shore excursions is included.

We also visit picturesque ports and islands which are less accessible to larger vessels allowing you to experience a quieter but equally beautiful side of the Dalmatian Coast.

Small Ship Cruises

World Voyager

Bringing together a more intimate cruise experience with the carefully crafted itineraries we’re known for; small ship cruises are becoming a popular choice for new and seasoned cruisers.

The World Voyager boasts an array of modern facilities, excellent guest to crew ratio and of course a well-planned scenic route to make the most of your holiday.

What’s more, not only is there a port stop every day, but smaller ships mean they can stop at smaller ports that larger vessels can’t. So when we aren’t mooring in some of the most interesting ports of the British Isles and Europe , you’ll also stop off to enjoy the likes of wine tasting, visits to ancient landmarks or simply time to soak up the local culture at your own pace.
