The mid-size ships (Aurora & Arcadia) will all continue to deliver a diverse mix of trades and durations, designed to appeal to our most loyal guests and experienced cruisers. Destinations range from the northernmost point of Norway to Russia, New York and the Greek Islands.
Itineraries have been specifically designed to include lesser frequented destinations, and these cruises have been identified as their Discovery cruises. Headline cruises include a 16 night Iceland cruise, including an overnight call to Reykjavik and calls to Akureyri, Isafjordur and Grundarfjordur, and a 30 night Canada & USA cruise on Arcadia, with overnight calls in both Boston and New York.
Calls to Tangier and Casablanca in Morocco have been added to Aurora’s 18 night Western Med cruise departing in April 2024. Aurora’s Arctic Circle cruise takes in both Iceland and the North Cape, and a cruise at the end of the summer season gives Guests the opportunity to see the Northern Lights.
