Incredible Experiences Await you...

Unearthing Centuries of History

From the beguiling Egyptian temples of Luxor and the Valley of the Kings to the intoxicating souks of Jeddah to the Portuguese churches of Old Goa, the destinations you’ll visit in the first few weeks of your journey are the gateways to time-honoured treasures galore. And that’s not to mention a transit of the Suez Canal and the chance to visit two wonders of the world – the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Taj Mahal – on Shore Tours.

Rounding off the year in Tanzania

To round off 2023, you’ll have a day to enjoy the delights of Zanzibar: beautiful powder-soft beaches, diverse flora and fauna, and fascinating stories and landmarks revealed in historic Stone Town. The thriving capital of Dar Es Salaam also awaits your discovery, with its excellent craft markets, restaurants and architecture, then return back on board your smaller ship to ring in the new year in style.

Endemic Wildlife Encounters

Isolated from the mainland of Africa for over 100 million years, the flora and fauna of Madagascar have evolved independently from the rest of the planet – nearly 80% exists nowhere else on Earth. The flourishing forests here – particularly on the island of Nosy Be – teem with vibrant life; lemurs, chameleons, ylang-ylang plants and baobab trees head the list of highlights you won’t want to miss. When you’re finished with natural wonder discovery, be sure to sample the authentic Malagasy way of life among the country’s colourful towns and cities.

Festive Indian Ocean Discoveries

The perfect pre-Christmas treat to yourself is the chance to discover the paradise islands of the Maldives and the Seychelles in all their exotic, volcanic glory. The latter in particular presents you with a fascinating culture featuring influences from France, India, Arabia and more. Seek out iconic Aldabra giant tortoises and coco de mer palms before relaxing on some of the world’s finest beaches – Anse Lazio on Praslin Island is a prime example. Then it’s back on board for the perfect Christmas Day at sea.

A Small Ship Adventure to see the 'Big 5'

No visit to South Africa is fully complete without heading to one of its national parks or reserves to experience a safari game drive in search of the legendary ‘Big 5’ game animals: lion, leopard, black rhinoceros, African elephant and African buffalo. Visiting six ports along the southern tip of the country – and continent – during your voyage affords you plenty of opportunities× to do so. Keep your eyes peeled for a variety of other native wildlife too, from antelopes and zebras to cheetahs, hyenas and hundreds of species of bird.

Four Days in Cape Town

Crowned by the stunning Table Mountain National Park, the ‘Mother City’ of Cape Town brings together cultures, cuisines and magnificent landscapes within its beautiful metropolis. Here are our recommendations for things to see and do× during your special extended stay in port:

  • Take the cable car up Table Mountain
  • Visit historic Signal Hill & Robben Island
  • See the penguins on Boulders Beach
  • Sample wines in the nearby Cape Winelands region
  • Explore the lively V&A Waterfront and the historic Bo-Kaap area
