Which cruise style are you looking for?

A cruise tour isn’t just a journey from one exotic port to another — it’s an exciting way to explore some of the most iconic and far-flung corners of the world, from Alaska to the Galapagos Islands, the continent of Antarctica and Greece, in one unforgettable vacation.


Seamlessly blending the comfort of a luxury holiday with the spirit of adventure travel, yacht cruises are favoured for their highly personalised service, inclusive amenities, and lavish accommodation offerings. Since these vessels are small and intimate, they often anchor in destinations where larger ships can’t go, whether it’s the Dalmatian Coast, the Arabian Peninsula, or the Seychelles.

Best for: Luxury, off the beaten path destinations
Our top pick: Croatia


Ideal for adventurers and true ocean lovers, sailing offers a completely unique experience that you simply won’t find on a modern cruise ship. Join the captain at the helm, help raise the sails, and wake each day to the gentle sound of water lapping against the hull — life aboard sailing ships is as exciting or relaxing as you make it.

Best for: Adventure, relaxation
Our top pick: Greece

Tall ships

Tall ship cruises combine the tradition and romance of sailing ships with all the modern comforts and amenities you’d expect to find onboard a traditional cruise vessel. You’ll travel to less-visited ports often untouched by larger cruise ships, all while enjoying ultimate relaxation and a completely unique experience.

Best for: Less-visited destinations, relaxation
Our top pick: Caribbean


Expedition cruising is all about exploration and adventure in remote and off the beaten track destinations such as Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands, and Australia’s Kimberley Coast. Expedition ships are smaller so they can take you to the heart of those out-of-the-way ports, and, rather than a cruise director and staff, you’ll find a team of specialist guides, naturalists, scientists, and other experts running the show.

Best for: Adventure, exploration, far-flung destinations
Our top pick: Antarctica 


While many of the basics are similar to an ocean cruise — you unpack once and pay a flat rate for lodging and meals — river vessels are designed at a much smaller scale than their mega-ship counterparts. As a result, you’ll notice more intimate vessels, fewer frills, and smaller passenger counts (usually between 100 and 200 guests). Less space means you won’t find any splashy production shows or casinos, but the experience is much more focused on the destinations rather than the ship itself — which means you can pack a lot of sightseeing into a week or two.

Best for: Luxury, sightseeing
Our top pick: Danube


With unparalleled service, exquisite amenities, and incredible attention to detail, luxury cruising brings the very best of a premium land-based resort onboard. Some luxury cruise lines offer unique and exotic itineraries to far-flung destinations, while others lure guests with lavish suites and added perks like personalised butler service.

Best for: Exotic itineraries, added perks and amenities
Our top pick: Canada & Alaska
