To experience the sheer untouched magnificence and astounding natural beauty of the Great White Continent may leave you speechless. Indeed visitors to this region, incredibly rich with wildlife and mesmerising landscapes would agree that if you can describe Antarctica with words - you have probably never been there. With more types of penguin than anywhere else on earth, leopard and crabeater seals, many whale species, and countless sea birds, the Antarctic Peninsula is alive with nature that thrives within this surrealistic and beautiful landscape. On this voyage aboard MS Midnatsol, we have chosen dates that sail to Antarctica in November and December - the Southern Hemisphere?s spring and summer, when Antarctica wakes from its winter slumber. Busy Adelie, Gentoo and Chinstrap penguins rush around nesting and feeding their young; whales, weddell seals and leopard seals can be seen on icebergs or feeding on the vast supplies of krill and squid; and, as some of the first people to visit in the spring and summer, the landings are often pristine with banks of snow and ice.
There can be no more a striking cultural contrast than between bustling Vietnam and the tranquillity of Cambodia. Embark the Mekong Navigator and sail down the Mekong River from My Tho in Vietnam through the diverse countryside of Cambodia before disembarking and travelling to Siem Reap, gateway to the ancient Angkor Wat Temple Complex.
Experience the very best of the Canadian Rockies and Alaska on this once-in-a-lifetime holiday. See spectacular Banff and Lake Louise; journey the Icefields Parkway to Jasper; ride on the unique Ice Explorer on the Athabasca Glacier and join the iconic Rocky Mountaineer, the award-winning rail journey to Vancouver. From here, set sail with deluxe Holland America Line along Alaska?s extraordinary coastline. You will be inspired by the wonderful history, monumental ice-floes, viridian pine forests framed by towering, snow-dusted mountains, and iconic wildlife - perhaps whales or eagles - that make this wonderful region of the world simply irresistible.

The Irrawaddy Flotilla Company?s steamers dominated the waterways of Burma from their establishment during the colonial era in 1865, through the 1920s until their destruction in 1942. In 1995, Pandaw were pioneers in offering the first passenger cruises since World War II, in replicas of those bygone ships, maintained in the same teak and hard wood style, utilised 150 years ago. Set sail for a unique cruise upon the same Burmese waters that have been an essential part of local life for millennia. Circle impenetrable mountain ranges, lined with remarkable ancient temples and monasteries. Combine this perfectly with time in Yangon and the beautiful Inle Lake, to balance the gentle village life with the city bustle of this spiritual country.

The Amazon remains one of the world?s least explored - yet much desired - regions, with its vast untouched rainforests teaming with indigenous wildlife, flora and fauna. Add to this the unique way of life of the local people who live on the major rivers and you have a different world waiting to be explored. There are very few river vessels of the right proportions to host groups of interested travellers and we are, therefore, very pleased to have secured space on the Manatee Amazon Explorer to discover, as part of a small group, the Ecuadorian Amazon on the Coca and Napo rivers. Nothing can quite prepare you for the feeling of freshness and tranquillity that one feels when immersed in the lungs of the world. Your days will be filled with the chorus of birdsong, green will become your preferred colour and the opportunity to see wildlife beyond belief (such as nibbling piranha fish, giant river otter, spider monkeys and the truly wonderful pink freshwater dolphins) will take your breath away.
