Cruises offer a serene and intimate way to explore picturesque landscapes, historic cities, and charming villages as they meander along scenic waterways. Enjoy a leisurely travel experience with the opportunity to savour local cuisines, cultural excursions, and spectacular views right from the comfort of their floating accommodations. From an Alaskan cruise with Holland America Line to river cruises in Asia, we have a number of tours featuring cruises including one exclusively chartered for Distant Journeys.
Alaska cruise with Holland America Line
Embark on a breath-taking voyage and discover wildlife-filled fiords, tidewater glaciers and rich island scenery from the comfort of Holland America Line’s Pinnacle Class ship, the Koningsdam. With its light-filled spaces, and a blend of 21st century elegance and nautical tradition, the ship is a wonderful home during your Alaskan experience. Sophisticated yet casual, the Koningsdam is a stylish haven after a busy day ashore, with abundant dining and entertainment options to enjoy before retiring to the comfort of your stateroom.
Our seven-night Alaskan cruise starts in Vancouver and visits ports rich in Alaskan history including Juneau, Alaska’s remote state capital; the former gold rush town of Skagway and Ketchikan, rich in Native Alaskan history. We also cruise through the stunning Inside Passage and Glacier Bay, making this voyage an unforgettable tour highlight
Brahmaputra River Cruise on board the ABN Sukapha – Exclusive charter for Distant Journeys
With just 12 cabins, exclusively accommodating Distant Journeys’ guests, the ABN Sukapha is home for seven wonderful nights, as part of our The Brahmaputra River & Darjeeling tour.
The impressive trans-boundary river of Brahmaputra is sourced in the Himalayas and finds its confluence in the revered and holy River Ganges. This River Island cruise takes you from Silghat to Dibrugarh/Jorhat, docking at plenty of iconic locations along the way. Guests can expect plentiful wildlife, cultural encounters with riverside communities, a fascinating glimpse into Assamese culture on Majuli Island and a visit to a tea estate in Jorhat.
Join us as we meander the waterways of the legendary Brahmaputra River on board the exclusively-chartered ABN Sukapha.
Pandaw River Cruise – Mekong River
Not only is our Mekong River Cruise one of the stand-out highlights of our Very Best of Vietnam & Cambodia tour, it is the perfect way to experience the mighty Mekong River and the rich culture of the Mekong Delta.
The Mekong River remains, as it has for thousands of years, a thriving and busy trade route, lined with small towns, local villages and colourful river markets. The brown waters of the river contrast with the vivid greenery of the countryside and the bustle of life. Travelling through six different Asian countries before it reaches the vast delta of Vietnam and the South China Sea, its waters attract river vessels of all sizes, from rowing boats and simple sampans to traditional long-tail boats and commercial barges.
There is no better way to discover the richness of the people who call the Mekong home than to take to the water. Our vessels, RV Indochina Pandaw and RV Bassac Pandaw, are hand-finished in brass and teak by craftsmen, traditionally-styled with a colonial era charm that reflects the original 1930’s design. Cruising between Vietnam’s Mekong Delta and Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, over three nights and four days, discover the wonders of one of Asia’s mightiest rivers for yourself.
Cruising Vietnam’s Ha Long and Lan Ha Bays
A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, both Ha Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay have been shaped by nature for centuries.
A must for any tour of Vietnam, one of the best ways to experience this wondrous phenomena is on an overnight cruise. There is something quite magical about watching the sun set in the bay, or waking up to the quiet tranquillity, surrounded by the impressive karsts strutting out of the emerald green waters.
When travelling with Distant Journeys on our tours of Vietnam, you will enjoy either an all-inclusive overnight cruise on board La Regina Legend, or a two-night all inclusive cruise on board the Au Co.
