Planning Your Cruise

Luxury & Expedition Cruises can look after all aspects of your holiday; the voyage, flights, pre and post accommodation, transfers and travel insurance.

We start by asking you lots of questions – where to, when, for how long, what standard and style of ship or cabin, and whether you have any particular personal interests that may help select the voyage or ship. Once we have a good understanding of just what you’re looking for, we can begin to select the best voyage to meet your requirements and, most importantly, that will deliver interest and enjoyment in an experience to exceed your expectations.

Please Book Early: Many of these ships book out more than 12 months in advance, particularly over peak seasons. Please also consider that there may be only a small number of cabins in the category you would prefer.

If you’re thinking of travelling over the Christmas and New Year period our advice is simply to book as early as you can, even a year or more, and we can add flights as soon as they become available.

So, to reiterate, BOOK EARLY to allow us to put together the very best itinerary for you.

The Seasons

Antarctic Peninsula, Falkland Islands and South Georgia open up for exploration in late October and early November and the season runs through until March (i.e. our Australian summer) when the shortening days and encroaching sea ice close this magical place to all but the hardiest visitor.

Arctic Expedition Cruises depart during the Northern hemisphere summer (May to September)

Kimberley Cruises depart from March (when the waterfalls are most impressive) to August

Indonesia Cruises depart form September to December

Galapagos Cruises depart throughout the year (if you’re a keen snorkeler the waters are warmer January to June)

Amazon Cruises again operate year-round.  Some will offer a ‘high water’ & a ‘low water’ itinerary


We have access to a wide range of wholesale airfares and have excellent relationships with our key airline partners.

Irrespective of whether you book directly with us or with your preferred travel agent, we’ll want to know the details of all of your fights – flight times frequently change and we want to make sure your transfers and other arrangements are amended accordingly.

Please Note

We only book flights in conjunction with tailor-made land (and sea) arrangements booked through us – we don’t book just flights, sorry.
