There’s a whole world out there waiting to be discovered. The key to a Voyages of Discovery cruise is simplicity itself - see more, do more. You’ll discover some of the great cities and monuments from the ancient and modern worlds. Along the way, you’ll also share the stories and insights not everyone gets to see. Renowned guest speakers unlock the secrets, while Discovery and Voyager offer the perfect way to get to any destination, and with all gratuities and service charges included a Voyages of Discovery cruise offers exceptional value for money. Small enough to reach out-of-the-way ports, yet large enough to make light work of crossing the great oceans, Discovery and Voyager have been expressly conceived for Voyages of Discovery’s special brand of discovery cruising to create an atmosphere on board that is friendly and relaxed. During your voyage you will be accompanied by no more than 650 like-minded passengers. Complementing the talks given by lecturers who will preview the destinations ahead, the programme features historians, explorers, naturalists and diplomats, who will share their expertise, anecdotes and interests with you.

Award Winning Discovery Cruising

Most recently, Voyages of Discovery has been awarded Best Niche Cruise Line at the British Travel Awards in 2011 and Best for Lectures at sea by Cruise Critic for 2010.

Experience an award winning guest speaker programme To enhance the value of your time ashore and keep you entertained and informed during your time on board, all cruises will offer a carefully planned programme of talks and lectures.

Informal talks

There will be a series of highly-acclaimed illustrated talks given by our experienced cruise staff and port lecturers on the places we visit. These talks are informal and informative - not aimed at those with a specialist or academic interest - and will appeal to all those who wish to have more knowledge of the places they will visit.

Guest Speakers

On all cruises there will be additional guest speakers who will give more in-depth talks on their own particular areas of expertise, sometimes connected with the destinations of the cruise, sometimes of more general interest. All have been invited for their special ability to entertain as well as inform. There will be two or three guest speakers on every sailing as well as specialists in other areas of interest such as art and photography, who will give classes for those who wish to participate. Teams from BBC History Magazine will be on board selected Summer cruises to impart their knowledge and understanding on the places to be visited, guest speakers and their itineraries include;
