    Variety Cruises Bali cruise

    Variety Cruises
    about 2 months ago

    Bali is famous, and rightly so for its beauty and beaches. But whilst a Variety Cruises cruise starts and ends in Bali, if you want to see the island you need to take advantage of the land-stay options (or make you own arrangements) pre- or post the cruise. It’s well worth adding on a few days and makes the cost of the flight better value.
    The cruise itself has great reductions on offer and is island hopping South Pacific style from Bali to Keramat, on to Satonda, Banta and Rinca, then Moyo and Lombok. It’s all about natural beauty, brilliant beaches, coral reefs, volcanic lakes, Hindu Temples and, perhaps most spectacular of all, the Komodo Dragon – the world’s largest reptile.

    Stunningly beautiful brochures

    Noble Caledonia latest offers and brochures.

    Noble Caledonia
    about 2 months ago

    Noble Caledonia have some superb offers of up to £500 off in some of the world’s most amazing places.
    Their ships are small and offer superb quality and lifelong memories.
    Their brochures have to be some of the most stunningly beautiful around too. You can order them on line or download them from their website.
    The vessels they feature generally accommodate between 50 and 150 passengers and offer itineraries for the genuine traveller. They offer something out of the ordinary compared to most cruises because for us the itinerary is the most important element of a cruise, something which has been lost over the last few decades due to the development of newer, larger vessels which can only dock in large ports.
