If you’ve ever considered setting off on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, now is the time to follow your dream. We’re proud to introduce you to our most exciting World Cruise Collection yet, featuring two full world circumnavigations on Aurora and Arcadia, a unique 180th Anniversary celebration cruise on Aurora, Exotic Fly-cruises and Australasian Journeys, and a special 50-night round-trip from Southampton on Oriana taking in the Caribbean, USA and Amazon.


The itineraries take in a wealth of new ports of call and introduce overnight and evening calls at some of the world’s most exciting cities, so we’re sure you’ll find something special to satisfy your wanderlust.


Circumnavigations ahoy!

Both Aurora and Arcadia will be doing the full-world cruise honours. Offering durations of either 104 or 114 nights, there’s plenty of time to immerse yourself in the cultures of far-flung lands. For the first time since 2012, you can even choose which way you want to go – East or West – with unique itineraries that take in 60 carefully selected ports of call.


Departing on the 9 January 2017, Aurora’s 104-night anniversary cruise celebrates 180 years of heritage. Travelling East, the cruise boasts 35 destination in 21 countries with overnight stays in Dubai, Singapore, Sydney and San Francisco, and seven evening calls. Maiden ports of call include Borobudur in Indonesia (Semarang’s temple complex is a must-see). And while on board, the sense of history will be brought to life with a wealth of themed events and celebrations.


Arcadia’s 114-night adventure heads West to explore Polynesia and Asia. Visiting 21 countries, the new itinerary takes in a fabulous array of destinations, among them Wellington (New Zealand), Okinawa (Japan), Nha Trang (Vietnam), Bangkok and Phuket (Thailand). Nine evening calls and overnight stays in San Francisco, Auckland, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore really let you savour the global flavour of this cruise.

Adventures in the Amazon

Oriana is the ship of choice for an unforgettable Caribbean and Amazon experience. Over 50 nights, she takes in 17 destinations in 13 countries. Enjoy sun-soaked relaxation in Jamaica, Barbados and Tobago before embarking on a six-day odyssey down the Amazon River, with maiden calls at Manaus, Parintins and Santarem in Brazil and two full days on the world’s largest river.


Tailor-made for you

If you don’t have time to do the full circumnavigation itinerary, you can create your own adventure with our selection of shorter Exotic Fly-cruise itineraries – choose from options to join Aurora for 13 to 34-night cruises or Arcadia for 10 to 67-night cruises.


If you prefer to make your own flight arrangements, we offer a ‘cruise only’ option. However, our inclusive fly-cruise holidays include all flights and transfers and overnight hotel accommodation when required to fit with flight times. Working with leading airlines such as British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways, we give you the chance to tailor your arrangements, such as travelling with your preferred airline and upgrading to premium economy, business or first class.


You can also extend your holiday before or after your cruise by booking one of our Land Tours or City Stay hotels in destinations such as Auckland, Dubai, Hong Kong, San Francisco, Singapore, Sydney, and more – or why not stop en route if the flight is long-haul? If you have family or friends to catch up with or simply want to enjoy exploring one of our stopover destinations in more depth, we’ll help you plan a holiday of a lifetime.
