Intriguing places… unusual destinations
Our discovery cruises take you to some of the world’s most extraordinary places, from the jungles and exotic wildlife of Costa Rica to remote outposts in Russia’s extreme north.
Here we give you a flavour of some of the unforgettable destinations we can help you discover.
As the world’s second largest country, Canada is unimaginably vast, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific in the west. With its towering mountains, glistening lakes and huge skies, the country’s natural beauty is legendary, and is protected by over 30 national parks.
Canada’s smallest provinces, the Maritimes, are also some of its most beautiful. The rugged coastlines, quaint fishing villages and wild landscape of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are perhaps best admired in autumn, when the foliage is spectacular.
Urban Canada is just as impressive. Cities like Montreal and Québec combine Old World charm with New World modernity, their architecture spanning colonial-era mansions to gleaming skyscrapers. Whether you want urban sophistication or raw, natural beauty, Canada offers both in abundance.
The islands that punctuate the turquoise expanse of the Caribbean have their own unique rhythm, offering a pace of life that is refreshingly unhurried.
And while their natural beauty and laid-back charm is shared, each island has a distinctive identity that is well worth discovering. From the Gallic flair of Martinique to the flamboyance of Trinidad’s colourful carnivals, and from the British feel of Barbados to the gabled Dutch houses of Sint Maarten, the region is a wonderful fusion of European, African and Caribbean cultures.
Discovering the Mayan temples of Mexico, cruising through the mangrove forests of Costa Rica, meeting the Embera Indians of Panama, exploring Venezuela’s vibrant capital… a cruise to Central and South America packs in an array of unforgettable experiences.
Voyages to this rewarding destination reveal not just the region’s ancient ruins and colonial architecture, but its endless sandy beaches and exotic jungle wildlife too.
Northern Europe & British Isles
Whether you want to experience Iceland’s geological wonders, the Baltic’s elegant cities or Norway’s serene fjords, there’s no better way to discover the hidden gems of northern Europe than with a cruise. Our cruises will reveal both the must-see cities such as Bergen and Copenhagen, as well as lesser-known ports such as Seydisfjordur, one of the most picturesque villages in Iceland, and Murmansk in Russia’s far north.
The dramatic coastal scenery of the British Isles also has lots of hidden surprises, whether you’re visiting the shores of the Orkney Islands or heading to to the warmer climes of the Channel Islands.
