Denali National Park

Denali National Park

Experience the thrill of spotting local wildlife up-close as we venture into the heart of the Denali National Park. On a tundra tour, a local guide takes us on a narrated journey, where we keep our eyes and ears peeled for local wildlife like grizzly bears, wolves, foxes, eagles, caribou, and willow ptarmigan.

Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

Marvel at the crystal clear waters as they lap up against dramatic cliffs that ascend from the depths of the Adriatic Sea. Get lost in the ancient alleyways weaving their way through charming towns. From the fairy-tale town of Dubrovnik to the sparkling blue waters in Korčula, the Croatian shoreline is a mesmerizing seascape.

The Lofoten Islands are a feast for the senses. Feel a rush of emotion as you gaze at the endless mountains, colourful green valleys, brightly-coloured houses, and tranquil rippling waters. While in Lofoten, we’ll enjoy a concert in an old Herring Oil tank, and visit the Lofoten Aquarium.

 

Why Ocean Cruising

The journey difference

One Journey, Many Opportunities

Experience all 34 ports of Norway during one extensive cruise, or six countries in Asia on another. Not two ocean cruise itineraries are the same, and there are countless ways to go: limited only by your imagination.

You Only Unpack Once

Step on board and settle in. Experience the rare opportunity of unpacking only once while exploring majestic faraway places. Allow the cities and sights of your dreams to come to you aboard your floating hotel.

Elevated Amenities

A luxurious treat from the moment you come aboard, smaller ships offer individualized comfort and exceptional service, as well as all the best amenities. Relax in generous suites with private decks and literally be catered to. Indulge in a cocktail in the piano bar, and savour delectable culinary delights in the many restaurants aboard your elegant vessel.

Turn Transit into Experience

Treasure each moment of your adventure. As much about the journey as the destination, each moment aboard the ship will be memorable. From catching a glimpse of spectacular aquatic life to passing mesmerizing glaciers and tantalizing lush islands encounter new ways of looking at the world from the luxury of the ship.
