Vantage Cruise Line

Vantage is proud to offer exceptional experiences aboard our elegant fleet of ocean-going small ships and Deluxe river ships, with the most included features and enriching Cultural Discoveries. Whether sailing on a 5-star Vantage vessel, or aboard one the exquisite ships chartered exclusively for our guests, you’ll call on intriguing ports and enjoy unparalleled exploration across the globe.

With the debut of the Ocean Explorer in 2021 — and the addition of her sister ship, Ocean Odyssey, in 2022 — you can circumnavigate the globe with Vantage’s refined small ship ocean-going and expedition ships. Together these 5-star vessels will operate a breadth of itineraries spanning all seven continents. With our convenient combination journeys, you can put two or three cruises together for the ultimate adventure!

Vantage also invites you to cruise the great rivers of the world aboard our own Deluxe fleet of award-winning 5-star vessels, specifically designed for the discerning traveler. Sail along the ancient Nile River in world-class luxury aboard the elegant m/s Nebu, launched in 2021. Or, explore the enchanting rivers of Europe on the newly refurbished m/s River Splendor.

What’s more, Vantage now offers the best value for everyone — from solo travelers to those traveling with friends and family. Here’s how:

  • We’ve outfitted our luxury ocean fleet — Ocean Explorer and Ocean Odyssey — with a landmark 15 solo cabins, so you won’t have to pay a Single Supplement to get a space all your own.
  • Our Deluxe river fleet — m/s Nebu and m/s River Splendor — also include dedicated solo cabins, so independent travelers can stretch out in style while sailing along the enchanting Nile and the storied rivers of Europe.
  • We’ve made it more affordable than ever to travel with family and friends with triple accommodations on many of our ships — save thousands by adding a third guest to your Owner’s or Deluxe Suite!

Experience the Ease of Shipboard Life

Simply settle in aboard your intimate “floating hotel” and watch history slip past in an ever-changing panorama of craggy coastlines, castles and cathedrals, cities and villages, vineyards and gorges. You’ll unpack just once and arrive at each destination refreshed and ready to explore. Once on shore, you’ll often find yourself right in the center of town, just a stroll away from major sites. One of the best advantages of expedition, small ship ocean, and river cruising with Vantage is that “getting there” is actually fun!

What’s more, we bring the culture of our destinations on board with a roster of local musicians and singers, folk dancers, lecturers, craftsmen, and artists.

Plan Something Special with Vantage Concierge

Birthdays, anniversaries, retirement parties, college reunions on board for family and friends, gatherings in your hotel when you’re on a land or on board while cruising  … No matter how large or small the event, your Vantage Concierge can pull it off with pizzazz. As one of the only travel companies to offer full Concierge service prior to departure, Vantage can make every journey memorable, whether it’s a cake, planning an onboard ceremony, or gathering your troop on a special heritage tour organized just for you. And best of all, it’s completely complimentary to use.*

Join us in one of the regions of the world listed on the right menu, and you’ll soon see why so many travelers are celebrating this rewarding style of travel.
