Voyages of Discovery is one of New Zealand’s best kept travel secrets when it comes to cruise holidays but one that is gaining rapidly in popularity as guests return home and spread the word about its unique ‘on board’ style and cruise itineraries. ‘Voyager’ is a small ship by modern day standards but large enough to provide all of the comforts to meet the standards of a modern, 4 star cruise ship. Carrying just 540 guests, ‘Voyager’ is able to access smaller out of the way ports yet large enough to provide all of the amenities expected on board a modern cruise ship. She’s comfortable enough to have won the British Travel Award for the Best Niche Cruise Line for the last four years.
‘Voyager’ has two stylish restaurants with open seating and you are free to dine at the time you chose with whom you choose.
For passengers who like to keep busy on board the varied workshops and activities programme will certainly appeal. There is a comprehensive library and every cruise features Voyages of Discovery’s renowned Guest Speaker Programme. Each speaker is a noted authority on their subject and are drawn from diverse sources such as the acadaemia, the military, the diplomatic service and the arts.
For the avid gardener, Voyages of Discovery enjoy a unique partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). Each year two cruises are operated in conjunction with the RHS visiting some of the world’s finest gardens.
No two itineraries are the same and include a series of Mediterranean cruises.
Cruising aboard ‘Voyager’ is cost effective too with all gratuities included along with meals, onboard activities & entertainment.
