1. Adventure, relaxation or a blend of both?

Whether you want to dive into new activities and experiences, or simply bask in the sun by the pool or the beach, you can do as little or as much as you like on our summer 2024 holidays.


Head to the Med and you might find yourself strolling on top of Dubrovnik’s walls or sipping a sangria while people watching on Barcelona’s Las Ramblas. In Norway, you could hike to a breathtaking mountaintop or relax and take in the views from the Flåm Railway – one of the world’s most scenic. Choose a holiday to Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands and you might ride the cable car up to Mount Teide on Tenerife, or perhaps keep your feet on the ground and taste some wine from one of Lanzarote’s volcanic vineyards.


Even our Short Breaks give you the chance to pack plenty in – from kayaking off the coast of Guernsey to chocolate making in Bruges (from Zeebrugge) or gentle canal cruises in Amsterdam that reveal the city’s enchanting architecture. And don’t forget all the pools, activities, gyms, spas, quizzes, sports, seminars, dining, children’s clubs – and so much more – available on board our ships.

2. Spice up your summer holiday

If you’d like to spice up your summer by visiting a mixture of iconic destinations and lesser-known gems, you can embark on an Ionian odyssey with Azura in 2024, including calls at sparkling Greek islands. Stroll on soft white sand and swim in warm azure waters at Corfu’s paradise beaches or wander through the ‘living’ medieval town – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On Cephalonia, if you can tear yourself away from the pretty harbours and stunning bays, you’ll find secluded caves, lush forests and rugged mountains.


Holidays exclusively for adults are on the horizon too, sailing with Arcadia and Aurora. There’s even a chance to mix summer spirit with Moroccan spice on an exciting new Discovery cruise. This 18-night adventure with Aurora offers the chance to browse the bustling souks of Tangier and explore the colourful alleyways of Old Medina in Casablanca, and you’ll call at a host of other popular destinations including Lisbon and Barcelona.

3. Enjoy more time in the sun in 2024

Our summer 2024 collection has a host of long and leisurely holidays that give you plenty of time to soak up rays by the pool on board and enjoy lots of full days in sun-splashed destinations.


So, will you explore the golden shores of the Med? You could work on your tan as you sail from Southampton to this vibrant region, before exploring fascinating and colourful destinations such as Lisbon and Dubrovnik. You might like to get under the skin of Norway and Iceland on a Discovery cruise – exclusively for adults – where you can immerse yourself in unspoilt wilderness and spend two full days discovering Reykjavik. Or perhaps you’re dreaming of an adventure across the Atlantic to the iconic cities and spectacular wilds of North America and Canada?
