Vietnam, Malaysia, Mauritius, South Africa and Borneo are among the 32 amazing destinations that Voyages of Discovery has planned for its guests to enjoy during Voyager’s late 2016 and early 2017 season.

Voyages of Discovery’s programme offers some unforgettable optional extras such as an overnight safari at the Thanda Private Game Reserve during the South Africa, Wonders and Wildlife cruise while the ship is in port; or a two night extension at the end of the cruise to experience the wonder of Victoria Falls.

Voyages of Discovery, a leader in cultural experience-led small ship cruising , embarks on its Winter 2016 season on 22nd October 2016.

"Voyages of Discovery’s Winter 2016 season has been designed to offer our guests the chance to get right into the heart of the destinations we are visiting in the Far East, the Indian Ocean, South Africa and the remote islands off the West African Atlantic coast," said Lynn Cornish, Director of Planning and Product Ocean Cruising, Voyages of Discovery. 

"We have added a huge range options for our guests wanting to extend their holiday, be it relaxing on the beaches of Mauritius, a game drive in a private reserve in South Africa or city breaks in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong,” said Lynn Cornish, Director of Planning and Product Ocean Cruising, Voyages of Discovery. 

"Being a small ship, Voyager offers a unique experience. You can step ashore in ports which mega-liners have to pass by; she offers a friendly atmosphere, with a more personalised service from the crew and the chance to take advantage of the excellent facilities without the crowds.

"In order for our guests to have the best possible experience of each destination visited we have carefully chosen a Guest Speaker programme that will bring each cruise to life through the speakers knowledge and passion for every port of call," added Ms Cornish.
