    Enquire about this cruise line


The key to a Voyages of Discovery cruise is simplicity itself – see more, do more. So you’ll discover some of the great cities and monuments from the ancient and modern worlds. And along the way, you’ll also share the stories and insights not everyone gets to see. Renowned guest speakers unlock the secrets, while both ships Discovery and Voyager are the perfect way to get to any destination.

Small enough to reach out-of-the-way ports, yet large enough to make light work of crossing the great oceans, Voyager avoids the excesses of today’s mega-liners. Instead they have been expressly conceived for the special brand of discovery cruising to create an atmosphere on board that is friendly and relaxed.

During your voyage you will be accompanied by around 550 like-minded passengers on Voyager. Complementing the talks given by lecturers, who will preview the destinations ahead, the program features historians, explorers, naturalists and diplomats, who will share their expertise, anecdotes and interests with you.

Please note, while cruise details and inclusions are accurate at time of loading they are subject to change due to changes in cruise line practices and policies. Please check details and inclusions at time of booking.
