When you go beyond two weeks, a world of opportunity suddenly opens up. These are bucket-list experiences, such as seeing in New Year in Rio de Janeiro, or departing Buenos Aries for an extensive trip to Antarctica. Once again we have included a river itinerary within our choice – as proof that there is more to luxury than purely ocean cruising.
Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Luxury guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s eight- to 15-night and longer cruises to exotic destinations.

Cruise Adviser top tip
When offering a cruise this long, make sure you are aware of how long your client can be away for. If they are running a business then a shorter itinerary may be a better option. When a ship travels through remote areas – be it the Amazon or Antarctica – don’t count on them being able to make contact with the office!
