From unspoiled islands to vibrant cities – with some of the greatest art and architecture on the planet – a Baltic cruise offers it all.

I had never been to Iceland before – although I had thought about it. So when I had the opportunity to visit with Saga Cruises, I jumped at the chance.

“Did you love Florence?” I asked my parents the day they returned from their Italian cruise this month. “We stayed on the ship,” my dad replied. “We’ve been there twice before, and there’s nothing new.”

With its dazzling mix of ancient shrines and temples of technology, Cold War thrills and sizzling street food, South Korea is a holiday hotspot waiting to happen. Go now before the crowds.

Spend a few lazy days on the Douro – glass in hand – and you’ll see the very best of this beautiful country.

Sail round Scotland with Princess and you’ll discover a ship that’s fit for a queen.

From ancient wonders to cutting-edge cuisine, the Greek capital is a feast for all the senses.

Had it with airports? With so many cruises sailing from UK waters, there are some fabulous plane-free ways to make your great escape.

Packed with jaw-dropping sights but rarely explored, Western Australia’s Kimberley Coast awaits your discovery.

From treasure-filled souks to stunning skyscrapers, the pearl of the Arabian Gulf has so much to offer.

You need a head for heights in the Douro Valley. Any excursion from the river – whether it’s to a medieval village clustered on a hill or a church perched at the top of nearly 700 steps – requires a drive up winding roads, past wine terraces, olive groves and cork trees.

Thirty-five years since the Falklands war, these islands are witnessing another invasion as tourists discover their unspoiled landscapes and fabulous wildlife.
