Set sail in style

18th December 2012

Cruising offers a wonderful opportunity to visit a number of ports, while only having to unpack once.

Experience some of Europe’s most exciting and unforgettable cities on a choice of award-winning intimate cruises that are memorable for their exceptional and unparalleled service.

Explore historic sights in Venice, Dubrovnik and Athens while cruising the sparkling Adriatic and Ionian seas. Experience the splendours of the Holy Land and the ancient empires of the Eastern Mediterranean by way of Florence, Rome, Ephesus and Jerusalem.

View the enchanting coastal landscapes of Northern Europe as you cruise the Baltic Sea then admire the cultural and historical treasures of St Petersburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. Alternatively, revisit a bye-gone era – when mighty paddlewheels churned up the rivers of the southern United States – on a genuine steamboat river cruise
along the Mississippi River aboard the American Queen, the only authentic overnight paddlewheel steamboat in America.

Along the way, experience the cultural heartland of America while strolling through the charming towns
and vibrant Mississippi river cities of New Orleans, Natchez, Chattanooga, Pittsburgh and Mark Twain’s Hannibal.

From a spacious, elegantly furnished luxury suite aboard the American Queen, be treated to sweeping river views that bring alive the sights, sounds and romance of the great steamboat era. Then, savour a choice of classic American favourites and regional cuisine by famed American chef Regina Charboneau.

No matter what cruise you choose, you can be sure of graceful and unobtrusive service, comfortable and luxurious staterooms, fine-dining experiences and memorable onboard entertainment. A choice of authentic onshore excursions allows you to tap into the distinctive character of local cultures for a truly
unique travel experience.
