December Departures


Get festive in the sun, visit a winter wonderland, or take an adventure this Christmas season 

After months of lockdowns and uncertainty, how about escaping to somewhere new this December?

Enjoy the Best Christmas in Egypt
Leave the cold and bask in the warm on the Nile, enjoying the luxury and leisure on board the SS Misr, exuding a unique old-world charm and character. Enjoy a Christmas day party and Gala dinner as you cruise between Thebes and Nubia on our 'A Royal Steamer Restored' cruise. Alternatively, combine the Pyramids and a Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan on 'Pyramids & The Nile‘.

Winter Christmas Markets
Celebrate Christmas on a mini cruise from Vienna to Budapest and Bratislava on 'Christmas Markets & Music on the Danube', with a special music and sightseeing programme including a traditional Christmas market, a special Christmas Eve dinner, Midnight Mass in a Hungarian church in Budapest and a performance of ‘The Nutcracker’ ballet.

Northern Lights in Norway
Or want to unleash your inner explorer? Step aboard a small ship plying remote waters for a cruise that takes you to one of the greatest parts of the Earth, in search of the elusive Aurora Borealis. 'Voyage to the Northern Lights' sails from Bergen in Norway to Kirkenes, way up by the Russian border, maximising chances for spotting the flickering phenomenon by sailing into the long winter nights of the Arctic Circle, far from any light pollution on land.
