Prices From £980 Per Person Plus Single Supplement Waived on Selected Sailings -
Orion Expedition Cruises has launched its 2012 Grand Sale offerings savings of up to 50% on its full range of 2012 voyages if booked by 30th November 2011 with prices from just £980 per person (based on the 27th September Great Barrier Reef sailing). In addition, Orion is waiving the single supplement on selected sailings.
Incorporating the first full year of voyages for Orion II, as well as Orion, these expeditions - well off the marine superhighway - include rarely visited destinations from polar ice caps to the tropics, with voyages taking in such far flung destinations as Borneo, Cambodia, Antarctica and the Kimberley region of Australia.
New for 2012 for Orion are Pure New Zealand and Bay of Islands voyages which take a fresh look at New Zealand. Orion II’s new sailings feature the islands of Micronesia and additional voyages to Japan with Art of Japan and Culinary Voyage of Japan itineraries. China is included for the first time with expeditions that includes the Yangtze Delta (Kobe to Shanghai) and Shanghai to Tawau (Yangtze, Taiwan, Philippines), while an inaugural visit to Java includes Borobudur.
2012 will see the two purpose-built expedition cruise ships undertake 68 voyages to 17 countries and 174 destinations stretching from Antarctica to the Russian Far East including Borneo, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, the Inland Sea of Japan, Korea, China and Micronesia (onboard Orion II). Australia’s Kimberley coast, Arnhem Land, Great Barrier Reef, the Spice Islands, New Zealand, the Sub Antarctic islands and Papua New Guinea feature in Orion’s range of expeditions.
