Cruise Europe with Expert Lecturers and Guest Speakers Aboard Voyages of Discovery

  
Next season is all about Discovery
Award-winning Voyages of Discovery are delighted to launch their new dedicated brochure for the 'Mediterranean & Black Sea' and 'Scandinavia & Northern Waters'. The new brochure offers potential passengers a flavour of each cruise and a glimpse of what they can expect onboard; a true voyage of discovery and an opportunity to see the world in its true colours.

The experts who enlighten passengers on the destinations to be visited are not only on board the ship, but also contribute so much behind the scenes. Every itinerary, lecture and shore excursion is meticulously planned, so no two cruises are ever the same – just one of the reasons many of our passengers return year after year.

Explore the Mediterranean and Black Sea
As with every Discovery cruise programme, a range of intriguing destinations awaits – discover the great civilisations of Egypt, Greece and Rome; visit the churches and galleries of Rome and Florence, and navigate the canals of Venice. Explore the Near East, taking in the sites of Ephesus, the lost city of Petra, fabled Troy, the great city of Istanbul and the battlefields of the Crimea. There is perhaps no better way to discover the diverse heritage of these regions than in the company of distinguished guest speakers, many of whom have been specially selected by BBC History magazine.

Scandinavia and Northern Waters
The Scandinavia & Northern Waters programme of cruises departing from Harwich ventures from the Arctic to the Baltic; from the majestic palaces of St Petersburg through the spectacular Norwegian fjords to the wildernesses of Iceland and Greenland. There is also the opportunity to circumnavigate the British Isles, visit the picturesque Channel Islands and explore some of the great monuments of northern France. These voyages are not only about history and culture; they are a feast for lovers of nature and beauty too. Passengers may discover some of the world's greatest natural wonders, flora and fauna; the dramatic scenery and geysers of Iceland together with the breathtaking polar bears and Arctic tundra of Spitsbergen and Greenland.

These waters have also had an enormous impact on the world in which we live today. Accompanied by experts like Antony Hopkins, former Professor of History at the University of Cambridge, we will follow in the footsteps of the Vikings who ploughed these waters on their own voyages of discovery in search of wealth and adventure.
