Published on:

Atlas is offering extra savings of up to £2,000 per person if booked before July 2. Looking to secure that cruise of a lifetime? Now is the moment…

There’s never been a better time to book with Atlas Ocean Voyages. Atlas’ dedication to high-end quality, attention to detail and trademark adventure remain firmly present, but there’s a bonus until July 2 – savings of up to £2,000 per person (that’s £4,000 per stateroom).

Never before has there been such a wild case of value for money. And here’s the best bit – don’t think you’ve got to depart on a voyage before the end of the month to secure the deal.

Atlas is offering 60 sailings from now until spring 2025. There are opportunities to taste the Mediterranean; explore the remote beauty with a Polar Expedition; and absorb the rich architecture of a Cultural Expedition to name but a few.

So, what’s the deal?

Atlas Ocean Voyages
can provide explorations from pole to pole with their fresh Adventure Beyond promotion, where savings of up to £4,000 can be enjoyed on select May 2024 – April 2025 expeditions.

Not only that, but there’s also a free cultural immersion on every cruise, taking you deep into local traditions that you’d otherwise overlook. By revelling in native heritage and absorbing the nature of each destination, you can enjoy cooking demonstrations and guided Zodiac safaris – utilising your complimentary Atlas backpack for taking mementoes home with you.

Courtesy of some extra Expedition exclusives, every aspect of the journey is now enhanced in full 8k clarity, providing adventure for every explorer and expanding each horizon. All that activity will work up an appetite, but never fear, as Atlas has thought about that. In fact, they’ve planned for such eventualities with great aplomb.

Food! Introducing the Epicurean deal of the decade

When presented with the option to book and save money, and with a range of climates and folklore to select from, which do you go for?

We’d suggest an Epicurean voyage to the Mediterranean, where the fresh aroma of spices, tangy fruits and earthy vegetables await. From bustling trade that illuminates the likes of Alicante’s Central Marke and El Olivar of Palma de Mallorca, to sampling authentic olive oil, wine and grape brandy from local villages in the Croatian countryside, the Med never fails to deliver for foodies.

And that’s the whole point of an Epicurean cruise. Defined as a person devoted to sensual enjoyment, especially that derived from fine food and drink, an epicurean migrates towards areas that radiate with authentic and exclusive palates. It is why foodies feel so relaxed while enjoying those shimmering Mediterranean seas; the flavours come to you.

Gathering with your fellow foodies to discover the perfect Sicilian dessert, naturally paired with Marsala’s celebrated wine, remains an unfiltered Epicurean paradise – especially when blended with a climate that encourages relaxation. Atlas can provide exactly that.

Food brings people together, as explained by the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus. As you bond with a visiting vintner or gastronomic guest alongside new friends while sipping on Italian limoncello in the company of stunning views atop the rooftop villa overlooking the Amalfi Coast, you can enjoy the experience in good company.
