All Leisure Holidays Ltd is the sales and marketing office in North America for All Leisure Group PLC, a publicly traded company in the United Kingdom under the symbol ALLG. All Leisure Group PLC has six brands under their corporate umbrella, including three escorted tour brands that do not trade outside the UK, as well as three globally marketed cruise brands specializing in discovery cruising: Voyages of Discovery, Swan Hellenic and Hebridean Island Cruises. The three cruise brands are all a part of All Discovery Cruising and are distinct with their own customer profiles and price points. They are each combined in their focus on enrichment and discovery cruising, which is about combining the chance to relax at sea on small ships featuring stylish on-board amenities and hospitality, with the opportunity to discover the world’s greatest sites and cultures in the company of experts.
Voyages of Discovery
Voyages of Discovery offers cruise vacations aboard the 1990-built, 540-passenger Voyager to lesser known ports accompanied by experts who will enrich your guests’ cruise experience with in-depth insight into the local history, culture, geography and wildlife. The Voyager underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in 2012 and entered service for Voyages of Discovery in December of 2012, replacing the original flagship. The ship has a choice of two restaurants, both of them offering open seating, available without any additional charge and one of them offers an outdoor dining option. There are no casinos or extravagant theme nights, just spacious public rooms and restaurants, cozy and friendly bars, fine food and engaging entertainment like art classes, craft workshops and engaging guest lecture programs. Itineraries include the Mediterranean, British Isles, Baltic, Norway, Caribbean, Canaries, and Central and South America. http://www.voyagesofdiscovery.com
Swan Hellenic also represents excellent value for money aboard the 350-passenger Minerva. What sets Swan Hellenic apart is our unique, meticulously planned, integrated program of included shore excursions, and a stimulating program of Guest Speakers. In addition to shore excursions, fares include all gratuities on board and ashore, as well as all port taxes. The Minerva was extensively refurbished in 2012 with the addition of a new lounge, a promenade, and 32 balconied suites. All bathrooms were renovated, as well. The Minerva’s itineraries include the Middle East, India, Burma, China, Japan, East Asia, Baltic and Northern Waters, Black Sea, Adriatic, Aegean, Mediterranean, Caribbean, and Central and South America. Most recently, Swan Hellenic has been awarded World Travel Awards’ “World’s Leading Specialist Cruise Line” in 2010-13. http://us.swanhellenic.com
Hebridean Island Cruises
Hebridean Island Cruises is an exclusive luxury brand where we pamper 50 guests on board the Hebridean Princess. Hebridean Princess is only in service for nine months each year (March through November) and for the remaining three months each year she undergoes extensive maintenance and refurbishment to keep her in tip-top and immaculate condition. Hebridean Princess is an all-inclusive product with all gratuities, shore excursions, and spirits included. We even have our own blend of scotch whiskey! Most famous for our charters with Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II (she has chartered the ship twice, including for her 80th birthday), this ship typically spends the majority of her season cruising the Scottish Isles, although we also touch Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. In 2015 we will offer four special cruises out of Portland and London including one that crosses the English Channel with calls in France. These are in addition to our normal Scottish Isle cruises. http://www.hebrideancruises.us
