Free First Class Flights | Earn over 100,000 Qantas points

Today, the leaders in luxury travel, APT, is launching its most extraordinary Small Ship journey – a 79-day odyssey from Reykjavik to Istanbul beginning on 13 June 2021, tracing a course through rich history, myths and legends, diverse cultures, stunning vistas and unique experiences.

Visiting more than 80 ports in 18 countries, this all-inclusive European coastal expedition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to Live Fully, with a maximum of just 114 guests being cared for by 75 crew members. Every day offers a new destination and a new epic experience, providing the ultimate exploration of Europe’s diverse coastline, from Reykjavík, among the glaciers and waterfalls of Iceland, through to Turkey’s most exhilarating city, Istanbul, where Europe meets Asia.

The journey touches the familiar and the rare, contrasting vibrant cities such as Dublin, Nice, Lisbon, Barcelona and Athens with the mysterious abandoned Scottish archipelago of St Kilda, the ancient Albanian city of Durres, the remote Faroe Islands, and intoxicating islands of Elba and Sardinia. Then add to it all a tantalising taste of a different continent through visits to exotic Tangier and Tunis.

The award-winning MS Caledonian Sky is one of the finest expedition vessels afloat, featuring just 57 impeccably appointed, spacious suites. The ship is nimble enough to sail into small harbours and fjords, and carries on-board a fleet of Zodiac craft for even closer access to the action.

It features expansive open decks and lounges, a well-stocked library and even a small gym and hairdresser, while passengers have the services of a hand-picked Expedition team, special guest speakers, and local guides.

Unpack once, and settle in for 79 days of indulgence and discovery of Iceland, the Faroes, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Italy, Tunisia, Malta, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Turkey. There are no ‘at sea’ days, with late-night departures maximising the exploration time of each visit and giving guests a new location to wake up in every day, along with overnight stays in some cities, including Bordeaux and Seville.

Priced from $114,995 per person, twin share, including free first class airfares from Australia for all bookings made before 31 January 2020. The cruise is fully inclusive and includes all meals aboard the ship; complimentary beverages throughout; free Wi-Fi; all sightseeing; transfers, port charges and tipping. As well, APT’s exclusive Signature Experiences and Freedom of Choice touring allow passengers to tailor their own visits to every port.

This remarkable cruise headlines APT’s extensive Small Ships program, which offers smaller-scale journeys throughout the world, but with the same industry-leading levels of service and style.

APT’s Small Ships operate in South America, the UK, Ireland, the Baltics, and the Norwegian Fjords. As well as sailing through Italy, Greece, Croatia, the Balkans, Turkey, Seychelles, Madagascar, Mauritius, Japan and Australia’s Kimberley region.
