So you know, the map above shows point-to-point lines which may cross land. Don't worry, your cruise ship will not sprout legs and run across dry land. Instead it's water all the way! Mapping is approximate, and the scheduled times are estimates. Your trip is subject to change as, occasionally, operators have to alter itineraries due to bad weather or unforeseen events.

The Price


On Thursday 10th May 2018, I found a starting price from £959 per person based on two sharing the cheapest cabin (usually this is an inside cabin). 6 days prior it started from £940 per person, a hike of £19 per person.


What's that per night?

Want to compare this short break to a hotel stay? A starting price of 'from £959 per person' equates to 'from £239.75 per person per night'.

Here's a trend line showing the movement of the lead-in price for this cruise. I aim to check prices daily and this graph shows only those readings. I love geeky stuff like this and thought it might be handy when planning when to book your next cruise.

In my last 7 checks, the cheapest I have seen this cruise start at is from £903 per person, and the highest I've seen it go is from £959 per person.


Are there any extras?

This price normally includes some meals but excludes drinks, gratuities, optional shore excursions, and any applicable flights and transfers (if needed and if excluded). If you want a cabin or suite with a view, these come at a premium (if available).

Cruise prices are based on supply and demand so the more spare cabins there are closer to the sail date, the cheaper the prices often become. After all, no cruise line likes sailing with empty cabins and this cruise sails in 1 year.

I regularly check for price changes by hand, but as they can occur rapidly, please use the link below to get the latest prices.

Remember, prices were correct when I last checked, but may have since changed. Prices are usually based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin.
