Far and Wide: The Ultimate Odyssey

74 days, two ships, five countries, three continents — December 22, 2024 to March 6, 2025

This ultimate odyssey will explore three continents on two small ships, linked together by an immersive mid-cruise overland program. Kicking off with a 50-day circumnavigation of Australia, Indonesia, and New Zealand sailing roundtrip from Sydney, guests will then be flown to South America for explorations of Patagonia, Antarctica, and the Chilean Fjords.

Linking these two cruises are two overland tours that guests will be able to choose from: six days in the Blue Mountains of Australia, or six days in the Andean Lakes District of Chile and Argentina.

Highlights of the Ultimate Odyssey voyage include:

  • Explorations of three continents and five countries
  • 5 overnights offering a blend of cultural and free-spirited Australian destinations and Patagonian outposts, plus an overnight in Bali
  • A circumnavigation of Australia, spending about a month visiting 18 destinations, along with a week-long exploration of New Zealand
  • A multi-week tour of Patagonian landscapes and Antarctic seascapes
