Fly-cruise holidays

Lift off, to set sail in sunny climes

If you’d prefer to start your holiday amidst sun-kissed shores, a fly-cruise allows you to feel the warmth on your back from the second you touch down. Whether your holiday lasts a week or a month, you’ll be delivered to the very heart of the region and can immerse yourself in more unique places than you may have thought possible. You’ll fly there and back, and soak up the wonders of a cruise holiday when you meet your waiting ship. You can jet away from grey winter days in the UK to meet our new ship Arvia or our flagship Britannia for a Caribbean adventure. Looking for a winter-sun escape a little closer to home? Azura awaits your touch down in Tenerife for a week or two of relaxing in the Canary Islands. And come the spring and summer, you can join her for magical Mediterranean fly-cruises from Valletta. Or perhaps now’s the time to enjoy a wealth of adventures with Arcadia? Join her to explore far-flung corners of the globe on our enriching Exotic fly-cruise or Classic Southern Hemisphere Journey holidays. It’s just over 3 hours to Valletta, 4 hours to Tenerife, and around 8½ hours to the Caribbean... So, where will your fly-cruise take you?
