Star Flyer

If you were thinking of trying a cruise for the first time and would like a short cruise as a taster or if you love the the elegance and beauty of the Star Clipper vessels, then read on.
They are putting on a mini cruise on the 18th. September on the Star Flyer starting from Malaga in Spain. Your 3 day cruise visits Tangier and then on to Gibraltar before sailing back to Malaga. This is true sailing (with the chance to be involved) and very much a small ship experience. A great short break or make more of it by adding a tour on Andalucia.
The 3 night cruise, return flights and transfers is at a price of £709 per person. A great price for an adventurous cruise in a very special full rigged ship. Places will go quickly (as there are not many to start with) so do get in touch soon to book your place.

Cruise to Alaska in 1890s style

Un-Cruise Adventures S.S Legacy sails from Seattle to Alaska and is a small ship adventure with the style of the 1890s but the comforts and conveniences of today.
With just 88 guest on board you have the option of either an 11 night cruise to Alaska or joining her for a 7 night exploration of the coast of Alaska. Being a small ship it can get in close to the coast. This gives its passengers up close views of the wildlife and a chance to visit small communities that the larger cruisescannot begin to approach. Add in the chance to kayak and explore ashore and you have a different kind of cruise experience.
The cruise also boasts “heritage guides” who bring to life the history of region and an on board conservationist to explain the nature that you are viewing. The captain has the discretion to vary the cruise so that if you run in to something special, such as whales feeding, he can stay with the spectacle.
This has to be a wonderful way to see Alaska and for the full details just get in touch.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises have just made their cruises this summer that more attractive. Book a cruise with them to the Mediterranean or Northern Europe and your free flights are in Business Class. In addition you have a free pre-cruise stay and the cruise is all inclusive, so you can lock your wallet away for the duration of the cruise.

That is not all many/most of the excursions offered on your cruise are included, making such a cruise really excellent value.

North Pole and polar bears

 

It is just over a hundred years since man first reached the North Pole and now you could follow suit. If you truly want to stand on the top of the world – then you can!

Truly one of the “Once in a lifetime” experiences.

Board a nuclear powered icebreaker in Murmansk, Russia to start this amazing journey and then head due north. Whale watching along the route is part of the excitement and landing on Franz Joseph Land will give you the chance of seeing polar bears and the other polar wildlife.

North Pole and polar bears

 

In case that was not enough for you, there is a helicopter on board the ship to give you thrilling flights over the pack ice.

So if you ever dreamed of standing on top of the world, it is just a phone call or email away.

If you have ever fancied a special luxury adventure cruise, then why not consider adding a True North Cruise to your bespoke Australia itinerary.  A number of exciting itineraries are offered – below are just three of these:

 

The Southern Safari (8 Nights) Adelaide – Ceduna / Adelaide

The is a real safari of the sea and a real adventure for those who like plenty of activities with a touch of luxury.  On this cruise you will stop for a scrumptious lunch at Maggie Beer’s farm, visit the famed Kangaroo Island and beautiful Coffin Bay where you can wash down oysters with champagne.  Then why not get up and close with the Great White Sharks in a cage dive and also take part in some of Australia’s most reliable fishing action, this is  safari with a difference!

WEST COAST EXPLORER (10 NIGHTS) Perth – Dampier

Relish in vibrant contrast – the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean lap the red sands of the ‘north’ as the West Coast Explorer winds its way north from Fremantle to Dampier. The Abrolhos are steeped in history; Ningaloo boasts world-acclaimed marine life and the Montes offer fishing paradise – the ‘West Coaster’ is a sojourn that tames Australia’s still-wild western shores! A must for snorkelers and divers, fishing enthusiasts, and for the adventurous at heart!

CORAL ATOLL CRUISE (5 NIGHTS) Broome – Rowley Shoals – Broome

The Rowley Shoals feature exaggerated corals, mind-blowing fish life and stunning underwater clarity; but perhaps more important than anything else – even today they are visited by only a fortunate few! Guided by a marine biologist and a team of underwater naturalists; divers and snorkelers alike will revel in a diverse wonderland of coral habitats including maze-like lagoons, surging tidal canyons and breath-taking walls. And the keen anglers will match wits with big blue-water pelagics such as black marlin, sailfish, wahoo and yellow-fin tuna. Wander the enticing shores of Bedwell Island, see the rookeries of the red-tailed tropicbird and indulge in a True North favourite – sunset drinks on the beach – 300 kilometres from the shore! The Rowley Shoals are Western Australia’s premiere coral playground!

Kimberley – Picture courtesy of North Star Cruises and the TRUE NORTH

North Star Cruises, the company that takes you to adventurous and exciting destinations and in style, have refined the above cruise to ensure that you experience of the highest quality.
This is a wonderful opportunity to cruise on their True North Cruise for between 5 and 13 nights to diverse destinations and daily changing adventures. The cruise takes you in to parts of the world that are untouched by modern life and you will receive a very warm welcome from the Melanesians where ever you go.
Depending on your interest, you could be swimming with whale sharks, flying over an active volcanoe in the helicopter that is part of the cruise experience, exploring rain forests and the advantage of having an expert on board to explain what you are seeing and doing.
Add in all those tropical island and coral reefs to be explored and snorkelled over and you will wish that you had booked a longer trip.
True North have cruises around Australia that take you to the wild and scenic places that are difficult to get and all with the luxury of their onboard life. Explore the Kimberley Wilderness, sail north from Perth on the Montes Cruise or take the Southern Safari as an add to your trip to Australia.
It truly is a different, exciting and unique way to see Australia, West Papua and Papua New Guinea.

If you are still wondering about what to do for a holiday this summer and you fancy a cruise with a difference, then consider one of the following adventures with Star Clippers.

They offer cruises in the Adriatic, around Italy and explore the islands of Greece. With the length of cruise varying from 4 to 12 nights there is plenty to tempt you. Perhaps consider one of the shorter trips if you have never cruised before or link it with a special event such as the Monaco Grand Prix. Prices include flights and transfers abroad – all you have to do is to enjoy being under sail, providing the wind blows, and visiting wonderful destinations. And you only have to unpack once.

 To discuss the options available then please get in touch:  tel: 01323 446550 or email: info@experienceholidays.co.uk
