Explore the Extraordinary

This summer, take a break from the predictable and plan an unforgettable journey of discovery. Embark on an expedition cruise to a remote destination on this beautiful planet, take a luxury tour that features exclusive experiences curated especially for you, or indulge in an ultra-luxury cruise on some of the most majestic ships sailing the seven seas. These aren’t just vacations. They’re experiences that will stay with you forever.

Ultra-luxury cruises allow you to enjoy an all-inclusive luxury lifestyle at sea while exploring some of the most beautiful destinations on this planet. The level of service, the grandeur of the amenities, and the range of inclusions on these cruise lines are almost incomparable to any other travel experience in the world.

Seabourn Venture

Expedition cruises, on the other hand, give you a chance to walk in the footsteps of great explorers as you embark on once-in-a-lifetime journeys to remote destinations. Ships traveling to these remote destinations are often equipped with helicopters. You can take a ride in the air and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the entire landscape before jumping in a zodiac to see things up close. If you’d like an even closer look, then you could step onshore with experts who will guide you across these fascinating and ancient lands that have been explored by very few travelers in the world.


Luxury tours can take you to popular tourist places or to off-the-beaten-path locations. These expertly planned itineraries include unique VIP experiences like private, after-hours tours of popular tourist attractions. You also get to indulge in memorable stays in magnificent hotels and enjoy exclusive experiences curated to deliver an unforgettable vacation.
