Exotic cruises

Shorter cruises across the globe.

If time doesn't allow you to explore the globe on one of our legendary World Voyages, then an Exotic Cruise is the perfect way to explore the world's most stunning destinations in total luxury and comfort. In 2018 you’ll find a selection of these cruises lasting between 5 and 43 nights. We’ve arranged these by where in the world they visit to make it easier for you to choose.

Explore unique destinations such as Bora Bora, the Whitsunday Islands and Ko Samui, allowing you to experience many diverse sights and cultural experiences. Each itinerary is filled with a sense of adventure and the thrill of exploring the unknown – from bustling markets in world cities to local delights off the beaten track – enhanced by the comfort in which you arrive.

Choosing the ideal World Voyage for you

Full World Voyage

A World Voyage is quite unlike any other travel experience. Stretching over four leisurely months, each full World Voyage departs and returns to Southampton, or you could devote two months to crossing from one side of the globe to the other – sailing from Southampton to Australia or making the return journey. Spending most of the winter in warmer climes, you’ll explore continent after continent in relaxing comfort.
