Set sail for the Caribbean

From the lively islands of Jamaica and Puerto Rico, to the near-deserted beaches of Antigua or the lush green, jungle-covered mountains of St Kitts, a cruise to the Caribbean is a cruise for all. Each island has its own cultural identity, and thanks to French, Spanish and British influences over the years, the cuisine is varied to say the least.

Visit Dominca for the freshest fruit and vegetables, Barbados for authentic beach-side shacks serving jerk chicken and Puerto Rico for traditional Mofongo. With crystal clear waters and perfect strips of white sand, you have the most perfect backdrop to sitting back, relaxing and tasting the finest foods.

Big Apple Voyage

From the iconic Statue of Liberty to the bright lights of Times Square, the tranquil corners of Central Park to the balloons of the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, New York is known as one of the most exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan cities on the planet with more than 200 nationalities calling the city home.

The food is as varied as the residents, with locations like Soho, Chinatown, Harlem, Koreatown and Little Italy offering visitors the chance to eat their way around the world, without ever leaving New York. And there is no need to panic for those wanting the traditional taste of America as cheeseburgers, fully loaded bagels and stacked pancakes can be easily found. The options are limitless in the city that never sleeps.

Discover the Far East

A cruise to the Far East is certainly full of new and memorable experiences, it has oriental charm, rich heritage and plenty to see. Its distinct and spellbinding nature gives off a splendour that is too good to miss. From impressive Buddhist temples to stunning beaches, the Far East has an array of amazing, must-see locations and a cuisine scene that will tantalise your taste buds.

Try freshly caught seafood bowls and Japanese rice for less than the price of a cocktail in Singapore, eat pan-seared Kagoshima pork belly in Hong Kong or ikanbakar (grilled fish) Bali style. Whatever you choose, an unforgettable experience awaits you on a cruise in the Far East.
