Voyages of Discovery Cruises

Join Voyages of Discovery in exploring the British Isles, Northern Europe, Mediterranean and Far East on classic small ship Voyager.

Travel to off the beaten track destinations in the company of guest experts who will enrich your cruise experience with insight into local history, culture, geography and wildlife.

As well as an excellent range of no-fly cruises from Portsmouth, there is a well-chosen range of fly-cruises to destinations further afield.

Small ship Voyager has been carefully refurbished to give just 540 guests a comfortable cruise experience with like-minded passengers.

Fares include flights and transfers for fly-cruises, full board accommodation, gratuities on board ship, free car parking at the port on no-fly cruises and informative talks by guest speakers.

A well-planned programme of optional shore excursions is available to ensure guests can see exactly what they want to see in each port. Cruises in conjunction with the RHS, National Trust and NADFAS, and Footloose hiking tours add special interest to these excellent value cruises.
