After chances to explore Costa Rican rainforests and relax at two of Mexico’s most popular beach resorts, your transpacific voyage begins with five days of ocean cruising on board Boudicca. When the South Pacific Islands finally appear, you’re in for incredible explorations of Nuku Hiva, a wonderland of volcanic scenes; and Fakarava, a UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve famed for its rare plant and animal life. Meanwhile, on the islands of Tahiti, Raiatea, Moorea and Bora-Bora, you’ll be immersed in a mix of out-of-this-world beaches and crystal clear waters, set to back-drops of rolling valleys and towering peaks. And, you’ll even get to visit Tonga, the iconic ‘island where time begins’, as you complete your Pacific crossing with a relaxing week-long glide to New Zealand.[ReadMoreDesk]

You’re sure to be fully immersed in the diverse culture and beauty of New Zealand; you could learn of ancient Maori traditions on tour to Rotoura from Tauranga; celebrate the history of the ‘All Blacks’ and the origins of the Haka in Auckland; and, from Picton, visit the Marlborough wine region, famed for its Sauvignon Blanc. Taste modern Kiwi culture in the energetic cities of Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin, contrasting the slower-paced lifestyle of historic, Bluff – a maiden Fred. Olsen call – known for its picturesque scenery and maritime heritage, and experience the unspoilt serenity of the fjord-like Dusky, Doubtful and Milford sounds from the comfort of your smaller ship.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
