Escape to the winter sun

January. Who wouldn’t want to give this month a miss? But it doesn’t have to be this way. Hop on board our brand new 35-night Caribbean holiday on Iona, sailing away from Southampton in the first month of 2025 and enjoy a sun-soaked kaleidoscope of cultures and cuisines.   

Or how about turning that winter wanderlust into reality on one of Arvia’s Caribbean holidays? Featuring evening and overnight stays on selected getaways, you’ll find a wealth of charms waiting for you at each sun-drenched destination you visit.

Will you be scuba diving by St Lucia’s colourful coral reefs or exploring Antigua’s lush rainforest as birdsongs fill the air? From swimming with sea turtles in Barbados to exploring delightful Dutch colonial architecture in Curaçao to trying some conch chowder in St Kitts... you can enjoy every kind of island adventure.

Embrace the magic of winter

fancy ticking off your travel wish-list with the chance to experience the Northern Lights on a winter trip to Norway? Exclusively for adults, soak up the comforts of your ship Aurora, as she travels north along Norway’s dramatic coastline to the fringes of the Arctic Circle in search of the aurora borealis. Although sightings can never be guaranteed, you can be sure of the ultimate winter escape full of reindeers, huskies, fairy-tale towns, Viking lands and snow-capped mountains.

And if you’re in the mood for some festive fun, why not celebrate Christmas 2024 on one of our new Ventura holidays to Portugal and the Canary Islands? As well as sailings to the Iberian Peninsula starting from early November, you’ll also have the chance to take the whole family away for the school holiday and spend Christmas in the Canaries. More of a New Year’s Eve fan? You can see in 2025 with some warm Glühwein in Hamburg and a little fairy-tale magic in Bruges from Zeebrugge on Ventura’s end-of-year Short Break. 

Set sail for the ultimate winter getaway

January 2025: the month you sail from home shores to embark on your greatest adventure. The adventure that takes you far from the winter back home. The adventure that takes you around the world for 99 nights to 29 ports. What better way to banish those January blues than by joining Arcadia on her World Cruise

Or why not swap two months of winter with 65 nights of dazzling discovery on Aurora’s Amazon and Caribbean Exploration and see the must-visit places you’ve always dreamed of? This epic journey will include a sailing down the mighty Amazon River and a partial transit of the legendary Panama Canal. Lose yourself in a world of exotic wildlife, exciting cities and natural wonders. Expect a winter getaway on a grand scale.
