Cruise & rail

Hop on board a luxury train, cruise oceans or rivers in a luxury boat; this is the way to travel in style. The journey is an integral part of the adventure. From trips through Europe on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, to explorations of the Galapagos Islands by catamaran, or a cruise to remote coral reefs in Belize, we've handpicked the best of the best of cruise and rail just for you.

Sometimes the best way to see a country’s true colours is to travel along its rivers or coastline by boat, or wind through ever-changing scenery in a luxury train. Watch the destination reveal itself through the windows, stopping off to get up close to the cultures, history and wildlife. You could travel through Japan on its bullet train, take the Rovos Rail to Victoria Falls, sail down the Amazon river in a luxury boat, or cruise the Mekong from Siem Reap to Saigon. We've cherry-picked the best boats and the finest rail journeys and have plenty of ideas to help you stop and unwind before or after the journey, too.
