From Short Breaks to epic World Cruises, our winter 2019/20 collection is packed full of holiday inspiration. You can plot a short pre-Christmas escape away from it all, seek out some sunshine in the colder months or line up an amazing New Year complete with a spectacular firework display over the skyline of Dubai, the Caribbean islands or Madeira.


Here are just some of the highlights in store:

Miami follows as well as Port Canaveral; with the opportunity to explore the Kennedy Space Center, and Charleston. The final leg of the voyage sees Aurora return to Southampton via Hamilton in Bermuda, and Ponta Delgada in the Azores. What a way to start 2020.
