APT has released a preview brochure for its range of luxury small ship cruises in Europe, Scandinavia, Greece, the Black Sea, Egypt and Jordan to take place next year.

The itineraries will be operated by the 57-suite Island Sky and the 36-cabin Variety Voyager, and follow the launch of APT's small ship expedition cruising aboard the 55-suite Caledonian Sky late last year.

The new programs are the result of APT's investment in the Noble Caledonia cruise company late last year.
