Voyages of Discovery

The key to a Voyages of Discovery cruise is simplicity itself – see more, do more. So you’ll discover some of the great cities and monuments from the ancient and modern worlds. And along the way, you’ll also share the stories and insights not everyone gets to see. Renowned guest speakers unlock the secrets, the MV Voyager is the perfect way to get to any destination.

Small enough to reach out-of-the-way ports, yet large enough to make light work of crossing the great oceans, the MV Voyager avoids the excesses of today’s mega-liners. Instead it has been expressly conceived for there special brand of discovery cruising to create an atmosphere on board that is friendly and relaxed.

During the voyage you will be accompanied by around 550 like-minded passengers on Voyager. Complementing the talks given by there own lecturers, who will preview the destinations ahead, the programme features historians, explorers, naturalists and diplomats, who will share their expertise, anecdotes and interests with you.

Voyager stars

All Leisure Holidays Limited are proud to introduce a new addition to the Voyages of Discovery fleet – Voyager. Formerly the Alexander von Humboldt, she has been extensively upgraded and will be joining the ever-popular Discovery in November 2012 to provide an even wider choice of itineraries to destinations worldwide.

Voyager, built by Spanish yard Union Navale le Levante in 1990, is a spacious and well-appointed vessel offering 278 cabins, 30 of which have outside balconies, open seating dining in three restaurants and the personal service and comfort levels that have been the hallmark of the cruises since 2003. Carrying just 550 passengers, Voyager has all the amenities and facilities of a larger liner, whilst offering the convenience and flexibility of a small ship. She is able to visit and berth alongside where others have to pass by, yet is able to traverse the world’s oceans with ease. On board the passengers will be able to relax in the comfortable public lounges, enjoy a drink in atmospheric Harry’s Bar and in the sunshine on deck at the Lido Bar, or read a good book in the well-stocked library.

The perfect partner for Discovery, Voyager joins the well-established and popular liner Discovery and will offer the same warm welcome and friendly ambience that the passengers expect, but with open seating dining and the option of a balcony cabin.
