Iceland is one of the most popular destinations in 2018. After the success of our 2017 Icelandic cruise, we are extremely happy to offer this special voyage that features a complete circumnavigation of the island featuring some of the world’s most beautiful scenic cruising. This sailing also highlights many of the most important and seldom visited Icelandic ports. The ms Ocean Diamond is small enough to dock in remote ports while large enough to ensure all of our creature comforts are met, the best of both worlds. You must act now! Our very special rates are only available until December 29, 2017. After that date, the cruise prices will increase by up to $2,350 per person. Call us today to book your places on this exceptional value cruise.
