Discounts on Small Ship Expedition Cruises

Discounting is common in the cruise industry and polar voyaging is no exception. We will always pass on voyage operator discounts; these may include both early booking and, on occasion, late availability offers or short-term ‘sales’. You will find these listed on our website throughout the year. We will always offer the best price available from the voyage operator at the time of booking. Whilst last-minute deals can seem attractive, there are limited places available on our expedition ships and so we strongly advise booking your polar expedition voyage as early as possible. This way you can secure your preferred itinerary, departure date, vessel and cabin category, whilst also taking advantage of the lowest possible airfares and applicable early booking discounts.

Excellent service - our flight home was cancelled due to Coronavirus and the airline offered no alternative. One phone call to Discover the World and 2 hours later they had booked us on to an alternative flight which got us home no problem. So all the stress of having to rebook with the airline was taken away and we were able to enjoy the rest of our holiday
