EXPLORE CRUISES

Oceans take you to destinations, and rivers take you through them.  One of the most significant benefits of cruising is the joy of unpacking once and enjoying a new destination and port of call each day. Cruises are easy, and every detail is taken care of for you. Explore historic sites and local culture by day, travel by night, and wake up the next day to do it all again – in a new locale. An expedition cruise can go one step further and take you to even the most remote destinations on the planet without having to sacrifice the creature comforts we have all become accustomed to having when cruising.

 

 OCEAN CRUISES 

The mere mention of the word cruise can send grown men running while their wives happily pack their suitcases. What once felt like a prison with strict rules for dining and limited entertainment options has now become the ultimate getaway where the mantra “something for everyone” has never been more accurate. Flexible dining times with an array of options from sushi and teppanyaki to French bistros, steakhouses, and Argentinian churrascarias are the norm. World-class Broadway shows like “Kinky Boots,” “Grease,” “We Will Rock You,” and “Jersey Boys” grace the stages of many of today’s most sought-after ships. Even the largest ships can feel small and boutique with concierge-level rooms, including “Suite Class,” “Aqua Class,” or “Haven” accommodations. Butlers, private sundecks, exclusive restaurants, and reserved seating at your favorite shows are inclusive features in these top-notch room categories.

If sailing the Seven Seas is old news, it’s time to change things up. With a river cruise, every detail is carefully planned out and executed to perfection. Enjoy the charming villages and medieval castles of the Rhine, the iconic imperial cities of Budapest and Vienna along the delightful Danube or the lavender peppered fields and Papal Palaces of Provence. Are you looking for something further afield? Explore Cambodia and Vietnam and the riches of the Mekong. Combine an African safari with a cruise along the Chobe River, a favorite watering hole for elephants, buffalo, and extraordinary birdlife. Adventure deep into the Amazon rainforest, the most biodiverse ecosystem in the world, and home to one-third of all animal species.  A few of our favorite river cruise lines:

 EXPEDITION CRUISES 

Set sail on a journey of discovery to the far ends of the earth. Immerse yourself in the profound silence and beauty of the Antarctic peninsula or admire the vast emptiness of the polar north, dotted with the melting sea ice and polar bears who call this land home. Alternatively, explore the Islands of the Galapagos with its endemic species of birds, reptiles, and natural beauty. A visit to any one of these locales will inevitably change the way you see travel forever. These cruise lines bring the true meaning to the word “expedition” with cozy warm parkas for polar exploration, naturalists, photographers, and oceanographers to share their wealth of knowledge. Reinforced ice-breaking hulls, zodiac boats, and the latest technology such as remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), underwater cameras, and hydrophones elevate your experience.
