Journeys : Dec Jan 2010
As with every 'Voyages of Discovery summer, a range of exciting destination s awaits in 2010. The number of fascinating ports on the roll call has increased and the season will be longer, stretching from April to November. An innovative French cruise including La Rochelle, Mont St Michel, the Rouen of Joan of Arc and the vines of Bordeau x will join perennial favourites around Scandinavia, the Black Sea and the Mediter ranean. New destinations for 2010 will include a retur n to the remote islands of Spitsbergen on the fringes of Greenland and the Arctic Circle, where guests will enjoy a war m welcome from the Inuit people. Other new ports include Catania in Sicily, Nauplia near the Greek citadel of Mycenae, the island of Korcula and the city of Split on the Dalmatian Coast. Each of the itineraries has been carefully planned to ma ximise time spent ashore and exploring sights, many of which are beyond the reach of larger ships. Guests will also be able to visit incredible inland destination s including Berlin and Cairo. Over night stays provide passengers with the opportunity to appreciate the art and historic treasures of cultural epicenters such as St Petersburg and Venice or the outstanding volcanic beauty of Reykjavik. Whichever part of the world you choose to discover, sometimes there's no place like home.

From the moment you board, we'll take good care of you -- you'll enjoy fine dining and exemplary ser vice in the company of 650 like-minded people. Passengers also travel, socialise and dine with the distinguished guest speakers who enrich the experience and provide new insights on the destinations visited. Every feature on the ship is designed with your comfort in mind. We know that it's the small things that matter -- from the leadership of our British captains and their officers to a tur ndow n ser vice before bedtime, nothing is too much to ask. Meals, entertainment and all incidentals, such as visits to the gym or the sauna and even gratuities are included in the price, so there are no awkward tipping rituals -- simply relax and enjoy your voyage.
