All Leisure Holidays handles three globally-marketed cruise brands specializing in discovery cruising: Voyages of Discovery, Swan Hellenic, and Hebridean Island Cruises. The three cruise brands are distinct with their own customer profiles and price points, but are combined in their focus on enrichment and discovery cruising. These three brands are about combining the chance to relax at sea on small ships featuring stylish on-board amenities and hospitality, along with the opportunity to discover the world’s greatest sights and cultures in the company of experts. All of our ships offer expert lecturers who provide educational background on the history, geography, and sociology of the global destinations that we visit. We also have partnerships with three premier UK Organizations: the National Trust, the Royal Horticultural Society, and the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS).
Voyages of Discovery
When you choose to cruise with Voyages of Discovery, you are choosing to discover the world your way and setting sail on the adventure of a lifetime. We have created journeys that you’ll never forget to incredible destinations all over the world, from exotic and tropical shores to ancient and historic ports.
Wherever you go, our small ship Voyager takes you to the heart of your destination in comfort and stays in port longer so you can explore not only the iconic sites, but also the off-the-beaten-track treasures. Onboard there’s a relaxed atmosphere, with just 540 passengers joining you on your journey alongside our friendly crew, for whom nothing’s too much trouble. You’ll find great facilities onboard as well, including two restaurants serving fabulous food, four bars, a library, fitness centre, spa, and much more.
During our days at sea, you can do exactly what you want, whether that’s unwinding by the pool, learning a new skill in a creative class, or listening to one of our Guest Speaker lectures – all of our speakers are great characters who are passionate about sharing their insights and adventures with you. In the evenings we host deck parties, hold classical recitals, and invite local musicians to come onboard to entertain you, so there’s never a dull moment.
When the ship arrives in port it’s still completely up to you what you do. Of course there’s always a carefully arranged choice of optional shore excursions for you to join, but if you would prefer your independence or stay onboard, the decision is all yours – flexibility is the key to making your holiday perfect for you.
Here at Voyages of Discovery, we like to think that what we offer comes with eye-opening value. As well as all your meals and entertainment onboard Voyager, also included in your fare are all gratuities, port taxes, and onboard service charges, so everything is truly all-inclusive. There are also plenty of optional extras that help to make your cruise even more special – a spa package, beverage package, and the chance to tailor your cruise with a pre- or post-cruise extension, to name but just a few.
Stimulating, informative, relaxing, sociable – these are just some of the words our passengers have used when describing the Swan Hellenic experience. A cruise aboard Minerva is like nothing else, with meticulous attention to the finest details and a quality and charm that is simply unmatched.
In the company of approachable and expert Guest Speakers, you travel to the world’s cultural and geographical highlights to uncover the soul of each destination. Minerva also calls at smaller and less visited ports, where you can stay longer and escape the crowds associated with larger vessels. Throughout your cruise, you can engage with like-minded fellow passengers, who share your thirst for knowledge and an appreciation of the finest standards of service. When you return home, you will be as fulfilled and rewarded as you are relaxed.
In the style of a country house hotel, Minerva’s accommodations are elegant and understated, with spacious lounges and comfortable bars. Long-serving, friendly staff look after your every need and ensure your cruise surpasses every expectation. Inclusive fares mean that, aside from personal expenses, visas, and any optional excursions you may choose, there are no other costs to add.
Hebridean Island Cruises
The word unique is greatly overused these days, but Hebridean Princess is undoubtedly one of a kind. A Hebridean cruise, as some of you will already know, is truly unforgettable; in a world where mediocre standards are all too common, you will be assured of the best of service from a hand-picked crew, for whom supreme attention to detail is the norm.
The majority of our guests are repeat travellers, and their trust and confidence are not easily won. We work hard to ensure that a Hebridean Princess cruise is the most relaxing, stress-free, and therapeutic experience you will ever enjoy – until, of course, you find yourself back onboard for a subsequent visit.
Each all-inclusive cruise is carefully planned by our own highly experienced researchers, whose vocation is to capture the cultural essence and historical significance of each port of call.
We believe it is simply not possible to look after large numbers of guests properly and simultaneously give them the exceptional personal service that differentiates an extraordinary holiday from a mediocre. That is why, on Hebridean Princess, you will find only 50 like-minded souls and no fewer than 38 crew to look after you.
After an energetic walk ashore, the comfort and homeliness of Hebridean Princess welcomes you back as though to your own home; and that is how we, and more importantly our guests, like to think of this unusual little ship. ‘Like home but better’ is how she has previously been described.
The Columba Restaurant, with its cherry-wood paneling, fine artwork, and discreet lighting, is a romantic venue to enjoy the genial ambiance. Single seat dining means that your designated table for two awaits and, for solo travellers, the senior Officers invite guests to join them in convivial groups.
Unlike most cruise ships, a Hebridean Princess cruise includes all shore visits. From cultural to historical, serious walking and biking to simply strolling around the bay, the opportunities to experience the peace are endless.
No cruise onboard Hebridean Princess would be complete without our specially selected guides who have sailed with us for a number of years, contributing their particular spheres of expertise and interest to enrich your stay onboard and make your holiday experience even more special.
So, at the end of your holiday, we hope that you will return home utterly refreshed; this is perhaps the reason why so many of you return to us time and time again.
