Our passion is small ships and each year we create a captivating and diverse collection of worldwide journeys. Our ships are of course big enough to sail the seven seas comfortably but small enough to drop anchor in places off the beaten track, avoiding the regular, crowded tourist stops whenever possible.
Small Ships – Big Experiences with Noble Caledonia. For those who enjoy seeing and learning about the wonders of nature, be it birds, mammals, marine life, geology or botany, our worldwide expedition cruises offer the perfect environment.
Whether you join one of our voyages close to home in the Hebrides or one in a far flung and exotic destination such as Papua New Guinea you can be assured of a warm welcome onboard and a team of knowledgeable expedition staff and guest speakers who will make your journey an enjoyable and rewarding one.
For those remarkable places in the world which cannot be accessed by sea or river, we offer an extensive array of escorted land tours many of which involve travelling by private train.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
In a world where places seem to be becoming ever more crowded, exploring by river offers a respite and the opportunity to enjoy the ever-changing landscape from the comfort of your floating hotel. From the Danube to the Ganges or the Amazon to the Irrawaddy, we offer a diverse range of worldwide river cruises.
