Captain's Choice cruises

Our Captain's Choice cruises bring you the opportunity to explore our cruising heartland; places that we've visited many times and grown affection for over the years.

Sailing from Southampton, each features a collection of classic destinations. And the best bit? We know each and every destination inside out - so we couldn't be better placed to help you get the very most from your time ashore.
