The “Winter Warmth in the Canary Islands” voyage, departing on February 2, offers the chance to explore volcanic landscapes, sample local produce and wander through the botanical gardens in Madeira.The fourth itinerary is the “Springtime Norwegian Fjords”, which sails down Sognefjord, one of Norway’s longest and deepest fjords.

The springtime cruise in Norway has been timed to showcase the very best of the fjords and mountain scenery, while North Norway will give guests the ideal opportunity to witness the Northern Lights – with 2025 being one of the best years to observe the natural phenomenon.

“Guests will also be able to embrace the local way of life in each of the destinations they are visiting and seek out native wildlife.

“Whether guests are sailing for the first or tenth time, there really is a huge variety of cruises to suit everyone’s desires.”
