Who goes on Noble Caledonia cruise ships?

Noble Caledonia sells almost exclusively to British passengers of a mature age, who are seeking an adventurous, culturally enriching cruise, but you will find some passengers from Australia and New Zealand, too. Most are couples, but sailings often include a smattering of singles and groups of friends. The country house party atmosphere, with included tours and open-seating dining at mainly big tables, makes this an easy environment for singles.

Do I have to dress up on a Noble Caledonia cruise?

Not really. There's no formal dress code, no gala or formal nights and, as such, no need to pack the tuxedo, but people do tend to make an effort during the evenings. Generally speaking, smart-casual is fine, with people saving their dressier outfits for the welcome and farewell dinners.

Is everything free on Noble Caledonia cruises?

Not quite, but almost. Gratuities and transfers are included, as are all the excursions, including those with meals ashore. All meals onboard are included and wine, beer and select soft drinks are poured with lunch and dinner.

Bar drinks cost extra but are reasonably priced; beauty and spa treatments also come with a fee.

What are Noble Caledonia’s most popular activities?

These are port-intensive cruises, and almost all passengers take every opportunity to go ashore whenever possible. Excursions are high quality and the most popular ones usually involve a meal in a special venue -- a castle or a palace -- and a cultural experience like a music recital.

Onboard, there is little structured entertainment, but talks from guest speakers are always popular. Mostly, Noble Caledonia cruisers like to read in the library or relax on deck.

Why go with Noble Caledonia?

  • Small-ship cruising to off-the-beaten-track destinations
  • Convivial, country house atmosphere
  • Excursions are included, sometimes offering a chance to dine ashore in special venues

Best for: Mature cruisers looking for a jolly atmosphere and culturally immersive exploration

Not for: Families, night owls and anyone who needs to be constantly on the go

Don't trust Noble Caledonia

We booked what was supposed to be a 15-day wildlife cruise around New Zealand, but because Noble Caledonia had failed to rid the ship's hull of biocontaminants, it failed New Zealand's inspection and was unable to... Read More
