Iona's long-awaited arrival into Southampton

Where can you sail to on Iona?

One of the most spectacular regions of the world, the Norwegian Fjords

One of the most spectacular regions of the world, many argue that the only way to truly appreciate the scenery of the Norwegian Fjords is to sail through them. We, of course, agree.

Discover sunshine and surprises on board Iona in The Canary Islands, Spain and Portugal

Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands are rightly famed for their abundant sunshine and sandy shores, but these dynamic destinations offer so much more than winter-sun or beach-based breaks.

Iona's itineraries are also ones of cultural exploration in some of Northern Europe’s most exciting cities

Iona’s seven-night Northern European City Escapes take in a range of standout cities in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, with late calls and overnights that give you time to really explore and relax.
