Cruise ships now cover every inch of the globe, sailing to countless continents and more countries than you could hope to visit in a lifetime. This leaves would-be cruisers with one very serious dilemma: “Where on earth do I cruise to next?”

Cuban old-school cool

Classic cars on the colourful streets of Cuba

This year, Oceania became the first major North American cruise brand to travel to the vibrant island nation of Cuba. With the US’s embargo on the country lifted last year, the port is ready and waiting to receive travellers who are eager to explore Cuba’s wealth of history and culture.

As you stroll the intoxicating streets your senses will be overwhelmed by the sound of salsa music, the scent of Caribbean foodie influences and, of course, the sight of countless classic cars. Cuba is colour and energy, and it is wonderful.

Arabian nights

With P&O launching cruises to the Arabian Gulf towards the end of 2018, now is the perfect time to plan a 2018/2019 escape to this exotic land.

Rich in culture and unmissable cuisine, Arabia is made for cruisers seeking the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. Ancient mosques and futuristic cities are interspersed with vast desert landscapes and glorious sandy beaches, all ready for exploration with Fred Olsen and P&O.

The magic of Asia

Asia’s contrasting scenery never loses its magic, and it will soon be easier than ever to discover the continent’s most enchanting destinations.

Both Fred Olsen and P&O will explore Asia, with the latter cruise line transporting guests to the tropical idyll of Kagoshima. This picturesque seaside town has been labelled ‘Japan’s Hawaii’, and has even been compared to Naples.

P&O’s new ports of call will also include the awe-inspiring Amazon, paradisiacal Caribbean, fascinating Middle East and the beautiful Mediterranean.

Natural wonders in Australia

With more cruise lines making landfall in Australia, there has never been a better time to explore this wild and rugged country.

Discover Australia’s reefs and rainforests with Fred Olsen: unique habitats home to weird and wonderful wildlife that will soon have you under its spell. Even Australia’s outback is a sight to behold: a vast, fiery reflection of the landscape on Mars.
