Our journey planners have poured their passion into designing a programme of cruises of which we are genuinely proud, providing you with a wide choice of interesting travels to some of the most fascinating places on earth, and at the very best times to see them. There is so much of the world to discover, so we welcome you on board our smaller ships to come and explore its wonders with us. 

Explore Northern Norway at the perfect time to spot the Northern Lights, celebrate New Year in Funchal, witness iconic events such as the Rio Carnival or Falmouth's Sea Shanty Festival, or see the waterfalls in Norway at their most powerful. And this year, cross the path of the Solar Eclipse aboard Bolette or see the Perseid Meteor Shower from the decks of Balmoral. This is why we were awarded Cruise Critic’s ‘Best Itineraries’ for five consecutive years.

The Joy of the Journey

Our way is about creating experiences that attract like-minded travel enthusiasts; people who love to experience nature, absorb other cultures and are as excited to engage with the wonders of the world as we are.

We keep tours smaller, many welcoming 25 guests or less, and our chosen specialist tour guides are immersed in local knowledge. Each port of call has always been researched with partners and relevant experts on the ground.
