Overview – Tynedale Life On The High Seas


When we first launched our Landlubbers cruise back in 1992 we never expected it to become our most popular holiday on our year planner. Years of experience and investment of time and money, together with a very loyal crew and the ability to reinvent ourselves every few years has in no doubt been the key to our success. Which is why we are once more in the Captain’s cabin planning the 2023/24 cruise, thinking up new ideas, menus, ports of call and sourcing great props to ensure our cruise delivers that all important feeling and atmosphere of actually having been at sea on a cruise ship.

Our 2023 sailing season has 15 four night cruises departing from Paris from late January till early April.

M.V. Tynedale, the original land-based cruise ship, first took to the oceans in 1992 since then, has been copied by many,but bettered by none! The experience starts with the issue of a Passport to all arriving passengers which gets stamped at each new port of call, providing you with a great, permanent memento of your cruise holiday. By the way… at each port, the locals all wear appropriate themed outfits.
