Unlike any other ‘cruise’ holidays, we employ only the finest floating boutique hotels with a limited number of travellers to create a private, club-like atmosphere.
Secluded docks as well as carefully designed itineraries in each location offer you the ultimate in cruising. On board, your expectations will be exceeded, whilst outside, there’s a whole new world for you to discover. Our ships provide expedition cruising on the Yangtze River in China, the Nile in Egypt and the Irrawaddy and Chindwin in Myanmar.
Vast, complex and beautiful - a destination for those in search of the exotic and the epic. An experience quite like no other, China must be visited at least once in a lifetime. Travel into the very heart of this amazing land, along the great Yangtze River.

Explore the very best stretches of this immense waterway, including the Three Gorges, on board the most luxurious ship on the river, Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer.
This great land’s ancient past lives on in its majestic monuments and relics created by one of the most impressive civilisations history has seen.

Follow the mighty Nile as it flows through the heart of Egypt on one of four luxurious ships, Sanctuary Sun Boat III, Sanctuary Sun Boat IV, Sanctuary Nile Adventurer and Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau.
