Silver Travel Advisor Partner - Variety Cruises
Please see the Variety Cruises website for the latest information.
Variety Cruises is one of the largest Small Ship Cruise Companies in the world. They have a fleet of 8 vessels, mostly carrying an average of 50 passengers, which get you up close and personal to each and every destination. It’s a really friendly ambience – everybody eats together and when it’s time for a swim the Captain drops anchor in a secluded cove, and you jump into crystal clear waters from the swimming platform.
The extensive cruise programme includes exotic cruise destinations such as the Seychelles, which is a year round programme, and in winter the Rivers of West Africa, Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, the Cape Verde islands, French Polynesia and Egypt & Jordan.
The unique and stylish yachts of Variety Cruises offer a winning formula of an informal and friendly atmosphere, great cuisine and superb island-hopping itineraries that truly explore a destination, accessing ports and marinas that are beyond the reach of large cruise ships.
The historic areas Variety Cruises visit offer fascinating excursion possibilities in smaller groups guided by their carefully selected local experts. Exploring off the beaten track destinations and an unhurried itinerary, giving more time ashore, are all features their loyal clients enjoy.
Variety put a huge focus on sustainability and the environment. They have already eliminated single use plastic from their fleet and the crew of many of the vessels take part in beach clean ups whenever the opportunity arises.
Cruise durations are usually 7 nights with an option to extend your stay in a hotel ashore.
