Destinations

Sailing to any of these destinations is bound to be a pleasure, however we thought we would showcase a few possibilities for you to consider.

Polar Regions - For those with a heart for adventure and exploration...

FFor those with a heart (passion) for adventure and exploration, the Polar Regions are for you!
Whether it's the Arctic or the Antarctic - there are many activities to enjoy such as the artistic skill of the Inuit people and their vast array of carvings.

If you have a passion for adventure, and the drive to explore, the Polar Regions, could just quench your desires. These small ship sailings take you off the beaten path, and away from throngs of people. Whether the northern or souther polar regions interest you, you will find fascinating lecturers on board, often speaking about the habitat you will be exploring, and its inhabitants.

If you are travelling in the north, there are often experts on board to speak about the powerful images portrayed in Inuit art.

The southern regions have the amusing, and un-afraid penguins to engage you, and often the ships have photography experts aboard. You can come home with amazing stories of adventure, and phenominal photos to augment your tales!


Wildlife in its natural habitat is a truly rewarding experience when observing polar bears, penguins, seals, whales, and walrus to name just a few.

Greenland offers wonderful hiking, and kayaking. You could hook a whopper if you choses to fish while you are there. The true heart of Inuit life pulses still and the people are available to you. You may decide to witness the Drum Dance, showcasing both the dance, and the traditional clothing.


Let's not forget the beauty of the Auraura Borealis or Aurora Australis as a breathtaking backdrop. The vivid, moving, pulsating colours are seen most often in the night sky in spring, and autumn. They are visable in winter too, but the cruising becomes challenging! The varied colours are only seen in the night sky in winter, spring and autumn - so plan your booking carefully to enjoy this enchanting spectacle.

Europe - With so many choices on a European tour...

This is where The Cruise People, can realy shine for you. There are a myriad of choices facing someone hoping to travel to Europe. We will help you select the itinerary that fits your ideal holiday best.

A benefit of chosing to use a cruise ship as your host while travelling in Europe is that you are able to see many destinations, without the expense of multiple airfares, and that you need only un-pack once! Also, once you have unpacked, you have all the benefits of wonderful cusine, informed lecturers to tell you about the fascinating sites you will see, and a nightly turn-down service. At this juncture, I will not venture into all the great surprises awaiting you on your European holiday.

Visiting popular sites, such as the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, The Tower of London are only the beginning of the wonderous and historically significant places you may chose to visit. If you decide to visit the Black Sea on Romania's coast you will be able to appreciate the Greek influence that dates back to the seventh century B.C. There are also 45 miles of beaches where the waters are said to heal such ailments as arthritis, and nervous disorders. However, being on a cruise ship, you should have no nervous disorders!

Awe insiring catherdrals, castles, ancient monuments, shopping a quaint villages await your discovery in the British Isles and Western Europe. While in England you may chose to visit the mysterious and haunting standing stones, or take a trip to Bath, where you may now take the waters. Your itinerary may take you to Paris, London, or Amsterdam where you can soak up the distinctive flavours of these great European cities. While we are discussing the wonders of Europe waiting for you to appreciate, we cannot omit the food. Your taste buds will most certainly appreciate the renowned dining availabe in the ship, and the opportunity to sample local flavours. We just hope your waistline will forgive your taste bud's abondon!

The Western Mediterranean can bring you to such renowned cities as Casablanca, Lisbon, Monte Carlo and Dubrovnik.

You can then do as we do and revisit these places while watching videos, and, annoy your friends by exclaiming "I've been there!".
