Itinerary

09 Jan 2018 » Southampton
An unforgettable voyage begins today...

10 Jan - 12 Jan 2018 » At sea

13 Jan 2018 » Funchal, Madeira
The largest of the Portuguese islands in the Madeiran archipelago, Madeira offers a wealth of sites of historical interest, marvellous fish cuisine and, of course, its own famous Madeira wine. Unusually, Madeira has no sandy beaches, but it does offer the visitors wonderful walks, not only through its towns, but through its mountains and hills.

14 Jan - 18 Jan 2018 » At sea

19 Jan 2018 » Bridgetown, Barbados
Barbados is the most British of the Caribbean islands, where cricket is the national passion and afternoon tea a tradition. Yet the flawless skies, lilting rhythms of both speech and calypso and the endless beaches all provide vivid reminders that you are a long way from home. Enjoy a stroll around Bridgetown, the capital which boasts impressive colonial architecture and take a snap of what used to be known as Trafalgar Square.

20 Jan 2018 » At sea

21 Jan 2018 » Willemstad, Curacao
What choice awaits you today in Curacao? Will you opt for snorkelling and swimming? Or perhaps a visit to Hato Caves with their crystalline pools and massive stalactites? Sample delicious Curacao liqueur in the very place where it has been distilled for more than a century. For a taste of Curacao's Dutch roots, explore the narrow streets of Willemstad. Lined with typical gabled houses painted in vibrant colours, it is one of the Caribbean's loveliest ports.

22 Jan 2018 » At sea

23 Jan 2018 » Panama Canal transit

24 Jan - 25 Jan 2018 » At sea

26 Jan 2018 » Huatulco, Mexico
Selected by computer as the site of a perfect resort, Huatulco has been developed sensitively. Nestling between forest hills and surf-lined beaches, Mediterranean style buildings (none higher than six stories) are clustered around an attractive circular harbour. There are more than twenty miles of beaches extending round nine glorious bays.

27 Jan - 28 Jan 2018 » At sea

29 Jan 2018 » Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Welcome to Mexico’s party town. But, fear not, Cabo still has plenty more tricks up its sleeve to charm visitors seeking daylife, not nightlife. On the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, Cabo has a relaxed atmosphere. There are glorious beaches and the sapphire sea, protected by the rugged limestone splendour of sea-arched Land’s End. The high energy water sports options are endless: jet-skiing, banana boating, parasailing and kite-surfing abound. But there is also plenty of scope – and reason – for more leisurely snorkeling and diving too. In nearby San Jose del Cabo , there are must-have shopping opportunities aplenty for paintings, sculpture, jewellery and local handicrafts in the lanes radiating from the main square. Outside the city, culture quickly gives way to the uniquely beautiful Baja desert landscape with its arroyos (creeks), cardón cacti, boojum trees, rare crested caracara birds and burrowing owls.

30 Jan - 31 Jan 2018 » At sea

01 Feb - 02 Feb 2018 » San Francisco, USA
From the moment you sail beneath the majestic Golden Gate Bridge until the instant you leave, you will be charmed and beguiled by easy-going San Francisco. In a single day you can climb the world’s most crooked street, confront the inescapable realities of Alcatraz, explore bustling Chinatown, ride a clanking cable-car and try sourdough bread and soft shell crabs on Fisherman’s Wharf. For something different, Sausalito is an arty Bohemian town across the bay, while at Muir Woods, you’ll crick your neck as you gaze up at the immense redwoods.

03 Feb - 06 Feb 2018 » At sea

07 Feb 2018 » Hilo, Hawaii
This spectacular tropical paradise is blanketed in diverse and beautiful scenery, including breathtaking waterfalls and exotic gardens. Travel to 4,300 feet above sea level and visit the unique Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and discover the active volcanoes Kilauea and Mauna Loa. In Hilo itself, you’ll find excellent shopping and first class restaurants.

08 Feb 2018 » Honolulu, Hawaii
Hula dancing, surfing and magnificent sandy beaches all spring to mind when you hear the name ‘Hawaii'. Honolulu is Hawaii's capital, situated on the island of Oahu. Downtown you will discover the only royal palace on American soil. Spend a day lounging on Waikiki beach or relive a dramatic moment in history with a visit to Pearl Harbour and the Arizona Memorial.

09 Feb - 12 Feb 2018 » At sea

13 Feb 2018 » Pago Pago, American Samoa
Surrounded by high mountains, which plunge deep into the sea, Pago Pago (pronounced Pango Pango) is one of the Pacific's deepest and most dramatic natural harbours. Born of a volcano, this small bay was formed when the seaward wall of the great caldera collapsed, allowing the sea to rush in. Here you'll discover that the people are friendly, the village life charming and the scenery breathtaking!

14 Feb - 15 Feb 2018 » At sea

16 Feb 2018 » Nuku’Alofa, Tonga
The Tongan capital and main cruise port's almost unpronounceable name - Nuku'Alofa - translates far more harmoniously as ‘Abode of Love’. This gives a much better sense of the tranquillity of this sleepy, dusty town on the main Tongan island of Tongatapu (Sacred Tonga).
To get a real feel for the Tongan history and culture which so captivated Captain Cook, visit the Tonga National Centre on the outskirts of town. Here they stage traditional dance shows, local handicraft workshops and mythical ceremonies. Elsewhere in the town, monuments and royal tombs remind visitors of Tonga's status as the only Pacific nation never colonised and one having the oldest remaining Polynesian monarchy. There are some fascinating archaeological sites around the island but even more of those fabulous South Pacific beaches.

17 Feb - 18 Feb 2018 » At sea

19 Feb 2018 » Auckland, New Zealand
Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

20 Feb 2018 » Bay of Islands, New Zealand
The Bay of Islands region is New Zealand’s finest maritime park and comprises 144 islands and myriad bays and beaches around the coastline. The Bay, with its subtropical climate and pristine natural environment, has an abundance of marine life, including the big marlin, whales, penguins, dolphins, gannets and many other species. And although it’s an aquatic playground for adventure activities and escapist relaxation, much of Northlands extensive coastline remains unspoilt.

21 Feb - 22 Feb 2018 » At sea

23 Feb - 24 Feb 2018 » Sydney, Australia
Sydney offers a multitude of sights. There’s the famous Opera House and distinctive Harbour Bridge of course. But this city has much more besides! You can travel back in time with a visit to Sydney’s oldest center – The Rocks. Take a city tour to take in Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Bask on Bondi Beach for a dose of sun, sea and sand. Or travel a little further afield for a glimpse of the Aussie wildlife and views of the Blue Mountains. This vibrant city has it all!

25 Feb 2018 » At sea

26 Feb 2018 » Brisbane, Australia
Welcome to Queensland's State Capital. With its subtropical climate and location just an hour from Australia's revered Gold Coast, Brisbane is ideally situated for exploring nearby attractions. Take a trip to Mount Coot-tha, the city's highest point, for a bird's eye view of its soaring skyscrapers. Stroll its leafy Botanical Gardens and tour its Cultural Centre. Venture out of the city to the vineyards of the Gold Coast Hinterland. Or even into the Aussie bush or rainforest for a look at Australia's wildlife and open spaces. Brisbane is a great base from which to explore.

27 Feb 2018 » At sea

28 Feb 2018 » Airlie Beach for Whitsunday Island
A subtropical paradise, consisting of no less than 74 tropical islands, the Whitsundays could not be more idyllic. Pristine turquoise waters offer great diving and snorkelling. Picture postcard beaches present pure white sands and awe-inspiring vistas. Sailing boats show you the very best of the islands. And National Parks and nature trails enable you a glimpse of the fascinating flora and fauna. With its absence of pollution and crowds, this is definitely the place to come for a little escapism.

01 Mar 2018 » Yorkeys Knob for Cairns
Framed by rainforest mountain ranges and the Coral Sea, Cairns lies in the heart of Tropical North Queensland. A modern, sophisticated city, its focal point is the Cairns Esplanade which combines landscaped gardens, restaurants and a natural harbour. A great base for exploring this region's reef, the rainforest and outback, there's plenty to see further afield too. Take a skyrail cable car or the scenic railway train through rainforest. Or head off in search of a glimpse of this region's native wildlife including crocodiles, koalas, parrots and finches.

02 Mar - 06 Mar 2018 » At sea

07 Mar 2018 » Manila, Philippines
Rich in heritage and culture, Manila combines natural beauty and history to great effect. Colonial ruins will satisfy the historians amongst you. Visit the ruins of Fort Santiago, Rizal Shrine Museum and San Augustin Church. Alternatively, Rizal Park, one of South East Asia's largest, showcases different styles of gardens and an Orchidarium. Or why not head to Taal Volcano, the smallest known active volcano in the world? A day in Manila holds many possibilities.

08 Mar - 09 Mar 2018 » At sea

10 Mar 2018 » Shanghai, China
Once known as the Paris of the East, Shanghai now calls itself the Pearl of the Orient. It is China’s largest and most cosmopolitan city and no other city can better capture the urgency and excitement of Chinas economic reform. A port city, lying at the mouth of Asias longest and most important river, the Yangtze, Shanghai’s spectacular architecture is catching the worlds attention. Charming old houses are making way for new museums, theatres and shiny new high-rises. But there is a comfortable blend of modern and traditional.

11 Mar - 12 Mar 2018 » At sea

13 Mar - 14 Mar 2018 » Hong Kong
A city of great contrasts, Hong Kong presents a vivid and vibrant feast for the senses. You will find mirrored skyscrapers, luxurious shopping malls and colourful markets vying for your attention. Take a cruise in a Chinese junk for a unique insight into this city's lifeblood – its bustling harbour. Head to Victoria Peak for unforgettable views of the city. Visit Aberdeen Fishing Village to learn more about one of Hong Kong's thriving communities, its boat people. Admire elaborate temples and stroll serene Chinese-style gardens. Or simply indulge in some serious retail therapy!

15 Mar 2018 » At sea

16 Mar 2018 » Nha Trang, Vietnam
Set against a backdrop of lushly-forested mountains, with a beautiful waterfront and wide, golden beaches, the Vietnamese seaside resort of Nha Trang is now well on its way to becoming a sophisticated modern town.
You will still find plenty of old fashioned charm, though, in the colourful markets, lively restaurants and broad streets of its bustling downtown area, which lies close to the clear turquoise seas, uncrowded sands and excellent diving and snorkelling facilities of the main City Beach.

17 Mar 2018 » Phu My for Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
In amidst the swarming streets and markets of Ho Chi Minh City, stand numerous landmarks bound in history and tradition: from museums that tell the stories of war to ornamental pagodas that are filled with characters from Buddhist and Taoist religions.

18 Mar 2018 » At sea

19 Mar - 20 Mar 2018 » Singapore
The ‘Lion City', Singapore, offers visitors a colourful colonial history, beautiful gardens, and a dazzling array of shops and markets. You'll find evidence of the city's oriental origins in Chinatown, home to a number of splendidly restored ancient temples and in the crowded streets, fortune tellers, calligraphers and temple worshippers are still a part of everyday life. On Orchard Road you'll find shops brimming with desirables, perfect for picking up the odd souvenir or two!

21 Mar 2018 » Port Kelang for Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur combines cutting edge architecture with the charm of another era. Home to a efficient monorail system and the Petronas Towers, the world's tallest buildings at the time of their construction, this appears a very modern capital. But there is also another side. Colonial mansions, Moorish architecture and mosques present a more established image of the city. Take a trip to the top of Kuala Lumpur Tower for fantastic views. Explore the manicured spaces of Lake Gardens and take in Chinatown's street vendors, bright lights and fragrant cuisine.

22 Mar 2018 » Langkawi, Malaysia
Magnificent beaches, mystical folklore and majestic jungle covered hills make Langkawi one of Malaysia’s most popular tropical destinations.
Made up of a cluster of around 99 islands separated from the mainland by the Straits of Malacca this attractive archipelago was once a sanctuary for pirates. Today its hidden coves and deserted beaches remain beautifully unspoilt.

23 Mar - 24 Mar 2018 » At sea

25 Mar 2018 » Colombo, Sri Lanka
For international shopping and restaurants, head for the Fort District in the north of the city and then catch some local colour in the Pettah Bazaar District. This is a warren of streets rich in mosques and Buddhist and Hindu temples and lined with shops selling everything from exquisitely worked gold jewellery (on Sea Street) to herbs for Ayurvedic treatments and bargain-priced CDs and cassettes (Malwatte Avenue).
To the south of the city, you can enjoy lush scenery and watch a cricket match at the lovely seafront park of Galle Face Green, then enjoy a stylish afternoon tea at the historic Galle Face Hotel – after admiring the exquisite hand carved doors at its entrance.

26 Mar 2018 » At sea

27 Mar 2018 » Mormugao for Goa, India
India’s sunshine state of Goa has many natural riches: stunning beaches, fertile farmland, thick forests, lush river valleys and acres of peaceful coconut groves. Located along the Arabian Sea, the main port Mormugao is tucked down in the Southern district. Away from the hippie party strip of the north, and a short drive from the busy port, you’ll find a much quieter, more serene scene. With less development here, you can spread out and enjoy miles of blissful palm-fringed sand with gentle sound of lapping azure water. Inland, catch a glimpse of the real Goa, where farmers work the same fields and orchards that their families have tended for centuries.

28 Mar - 30 Mar 2018 » At sea

31 Mar - 01 Apr 2018 » Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The ‘Middle East meets Hong Kong with a little Las Vegas thrown in for style', traditional architecture mixed with glittering new offices and the home of sand, sea and sun. As you cruise into this formidable city, you will gaze up in wonder at the magnificent Burj Al Arab Hotel dominating the Dubai coastline. Designed to resemble a billowing sail, it stands at a height of 321 metres.

02 Apr 2018 » Muscat, Oman
The Sultanate of Oman's capital, Muscat, has a magical feel. It is a combination of stunning deserts, mountains and beaches with all the comforts of a bustling, modern metropolis. It's also the meeting point of Asian, African and Arabic civilizations and this unique blend of cultures makes Oman a special place to visit and explore.

03 Apr - 07 Apr 2018 » At sea

08 Apr 2018 » Aqaba for Petra, Jordan
The Jordanian town of Aqaba nestles at the top of the Gulf of Aqaba which leads off the Red Sea. Boasting some excellent sandy beaches and one of the worlds best-preserved coral reefs, this is a popular resort with divers. But the main attraction of this area is the magnificent fortress city of Petra, buried by sand for more than 2,000 years until it was discovered in the desert near Aqaba in the 19th century and excavated in the 1950s.

09 Apr 2018 » Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
If you are a diver, then Sharm-el-Sheikh is heaven. The reefs offshore are a wonderland of corals, anemones and fish, just perfect to explore. If you would prefer not to get your feet wet, inland you can visit a mysterious Bedouin camp or see the ancient monastery of St. Catherine, reputedly built on the site of Moses' Burning Bush.

10 Apr 2018 » Suez Canal transit
Make sure you’re out on deck throughout the transit, as it is one of the world’s most fascinating maritime experiences, creating the bizarre impression that you are sailing right through the dry heart of the desert. The present, 101-mile-long Canal took 15 years to build, was completed in 1869 and shaved a mere 7,000 miles off the journey from England to India. It is the second to cross the Isthmus of Suez – the first was constructed in the 5th century BC and was in use until the 8th century.

11 Apr - 12 Apr 2018 » At sea

13 Apr 2018 » Naples, Italy
Naples is the perfect gateway to visit picturesque Sorrento and the historical ruins of Pompeii. Sorrento was once a favourite resort to the Romans and evidence of their wealth can be found around every corner. Explore the imposing Duomo with its distinctive 13 th century cloister and the charming flower filled town. For a poignant taste of Roman history visit the ruins of Pompeii, a once prosperous city now frozen in time. Now it is preserved by the very thing that destroyed its flourishing civilisation, the ash of the mighty volcano, Vesuvius.

14 Apr - 15 Apr 2018 » At sea

16 Apr 2018 » Cadiz for Seville, Spain
Capital of the province of the same name, Cadiz is not only one of the largest ports on the Atlantic coast of Spain, it is also the oldest inhabited town in the western world with 3,000 years of history.
