Consumers who book a cruise from the 2025-26  programme between today (March 5) and March 12 have the chance to win up to £1,000 off a cruise of their choice. Five runners up will also win a £200 voucher to use towards a future cruise booking. 

Launch offers include up to £20 per person per night to spend on board on selected five to 13-night cruises; the choice of up to £20 credit pp per night or free door-to-door transfers within up to 200 mainland miles from the port on sailings of 14 to 28 nights. Dedicated offers for solo travellers are also available.

Head of itineracy planning and destination experiences Martin Lister said: “This has been a phenomenal programme for our team of journey planners to curate, as it will see our fleet of smaller-sized ships visit all seven continents of the world.

“Guests who join us on board in 2025 and 2026 can expect to see some breathtaking scenery including eye-catching fjord mountains, dramatic coastlines, icebergs, remote islands and beautiful bays.

“They can visit captivating cities, fairytale castles and charming old towns packed with ornate and striking architecture and experience natural phenomena such as the Northern Lights, the Midnight Sun, stunning sunsets and flowers in bloom at the very best time to see them.

“Some of the highlights include chances to visit the beautiful Norwegian fjords in the spring, when the waterfalls are at their strongest; to see fields of lavender and sunflowers in bloom in the French Riviera and enjoy a world cruise discovering idyllic islands and cities rich in culture.”
