Luxury Cruising and Sailing Trips

There’s nothing quite as romantic as being at sea. Whether you’re becalmed with a glass of bubbles, hoisting up the main sail on a luxury charter yacht or cruising though some of the world’s most captivating islands and coastlines, life on board is full of pinch-yourself moments. From the Arctic to the Galapagos Islands, and the Antarctic to the Borneo coast, our sailing holidays and luxury cruises are among our most extraordinary travel experiences.

Handpick your next high seas adventure from our diverse portfolio of luxury liveaboard charter yachts and cruising holidays. Meet the world’s largest lizard at Komodo Island in Indonesia, the habitat of the Komodo dragon, or climb aboard a luxury junk boat trip in Hong Kong and Vietnam’s spectacular Ha Long Bay.

Join an expedition to the Galapagos, an archipelago of volcanic islands that’s home to marine iguanas, ancient tortoises, penguins and seals. Revel in spectacular scenery and wildlife and birdlife not seen anywhere else in the world.

Is there any better way to see the Maldives than island-hopping on a private charter yacht through its 26 atolls? Laze on abundant white sand beaches, snorkel with diverse sea life in impossibly aqua waters and find yourself on island time.

Cruises are a wonderful option for family travel, and our Travel Designers can arrange multi-generational trips catering to all ages and stages – including high energy kids’ clubs and teen hangouts. Through our partnership with Lindblad Expeditions, we now offer world-class adventure cruises to far-flung corners of the globe.
