Cruise only (Please call for flight options)
Setting sail from New York
The Big Apple is one of the world's most iconic, cosmopolitan cities, a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. From the lofty heights of the Manhattan skyscrapers to the hipster hangouts of resurgent Brooklyn, New York City buzzes with energy and excitement, and there's never been a better time to visit. Cultural highlights include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts and the theatres of Broadway, and the culinary scene is arguably the most exciting in the US, with an ever-changing smorgasbord of innovative restaurants, pop-ups and fashionable street food trucks.
Head to the ‘Top of the Rock’ at the Rockefeller Centre, for views rivalling those at from the observation platform of the Empire State Building, but without the crowds.
United States: Charleston
A visit to Charleston is like travelling back in time, so perfectly preserved is the town’s 19th century ambience, and you’ll often hear the clip-clop of a horse-drawn carriage ferrying tourists along the cobbled streets.
United States: Key West
Colourful and eccentric, the island city of Key West stands apart from the rest of Florida. A strong Caribbean influence reflects the city’s proximity to Cuba and the Bahamas, and it has long been known as a bohemian hangout, a welcoming and open-minded place that Ernest Hemingway once called home.
Cozumel first made its name as an off the beaten track destination for divers, thanks to the crystalline waters and low key beach vibe. These days the cat is very much out of the bag, but get away from the craft shops and jewellery stores of the busy port and you’ll find a welcoming island community that is still authentically Mexican.
Honduras: Útila Island
The Caribbean island of Providencia may belong to Colombia, but its relative inaccessibility and distance from the mainland lends the island its own distinct flavour. Many locals speak an English creole, and tourists are thin on the ground. It’s a great place for diving, snorkelling or relaxing on the beach.
Colombia: San Andrés
The island of San Andrés is part of Colombia, though it lies far closer to the coast of Nicaragua than the Colombian mainland. Sunbathing, snorkelling and diving are the main attractions, and the island is also home to the fascinating Raizal culture, an Afro-Caribbean ethnic group that speaks an English creole rather than Spanish.
Nicaragua: Islas del Maiz
Panama: Bocas del Toro
The Bocas del Toro archipelago is one of Panama’s most appealing tourist destinations, a collection of idyllic Caribbean islands blessed with beautiful beaches, lush mangroves and wildlife including sloths, iguanas and turtles.
Arriving in Puerto Limón
Puerto Limón is a busy port on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast, and plays a vital role in the export of bananas. Take a trip out of the city and explore the lush rainforest, with nearby attractions including the canals of Tortuguero National Park, a key breeding site for green turtles.

Designed for polar cruising, she regularly visits the Arctic and Antarctic, with an ice-strengthened hull and a wealth of technological gizmos on board. Cabins are simple but comfortable, and the observation lounge and restaurant are designed to provide wonderful views of the ever-changing landscape outside. If you're feeling brave there are even outdoor Jacuzzis to keep you warm as the icebergs float past!
