Explore the charms of Juneau (accessible only by boat), Skagway, and Ketchikan, with scenic cruising through the Inside Passage and plenty of glacier viewing opportunities at Glacier Bay National Park or Hubbard Glacier.

    A wide array of land tours can be combined with your cruise to bring you closer to nature and to view the resilient wildlife that can only be found in Alaska’s wild interiors. Travel by rail and motor coach to breathtaking highlights including Denali, Kenai Fjords, Wrangell-St., Elias National Parks, and the Klondike town of Fairbanks.

    Feeling adventurous? Contact your Vacation Consultant and go where few have gone before.

    2. Discover Europe: Fine Wines, Culture & Culinary Divine

    Europe is a continent with so many options, it’s difficult to pick just one. Start with the North Cape and the Baltic, where you can relive history through the Vikings and the Russian Czars. Or, retrace your familial roots in the British Isles. Take a voyage along the Mediterranean–one of the most popular itineraries. Stop by Italy and France to decide which fine wines and indulgent cuisines you love best.

    Where else can you explore ancient civilizations built with stone and marble roads, then skip to designer shopping along waterfront promenades, all on the same day? Lastly, the sunny Greek isles and Dalmatian coast beckon with golden beaches, walled fortresses, and ancient cultures.

    Contact your Vacation Consultant to narrow down your top options for an unforgettable getaway to eclectic Europe!

    3. Discover the Caribbean: Blue Skies, Sunny Days & Pina Coladas

    The Caribbean offers an endless array of tropical turquoise waters speckled with sun-soaked islands that are nothing short of paradise—whether it's Aruba, St. Barts, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Dominica, Bahamas, St. Maarten, St. Croix, Antigua, Curacao, Jamaica, Mexico, or the British Virgin Islands, just to name a few!

    Snorkel vibrant coral reefs. Go parasailing or scuba dive in search of hidden treasures and unique marine life. Or, simply lounge ocean or poolside, pina colada in hand with a fresh new tan. Whether you’re looking to relax and soak up the sun on one of the glistening white sand beaches, or join an adventurous shore excursion, a cruise through the Caribbean offers you the chance to do both, and more! Plan your perfect getaway today, because sailing along these calming shores is the well-earned vacation you’ve been waiting for.

    Contact your Vacation Consultant to schedule in your next relaxing getaway to the sun-kissed Caribbean.

    4. Discover the Exotics: Australia, South America & More!

    Dive deeper into our exotic destinations. Snorkel Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Spot a colorful toucan on a trek through the lush rainforests of South America or surf the shores of Nicaragua. Foodies can delight their palettes in a cultural tour of Asia’s eclectic cuisines, with iconic sights such as the enigmatic Angkor Wat, the mesmerizing Halong Bay, the awe-inspiring Mt Fuji, and the grand mosques and souqs of the Persian Gulf easily within reach.

    Connecting the waters of the Caribbean and the Pacific oceans is the mighty Panama Canal, one of the seven modern wonders of the world. Highlights on a Panama cruise include the Mayan ruins, active volcanoes, sun-kissed beaches, and world-class diving. Are you a wildlife lover? Ask us about our Safari options!

    The world is truly the limit. Contact your Vacation Consultant to enquire about any extraordinary destination, listed or otherwise.

    5. Discover River Cruising: A Popular New Perspective

    Imagine docking in the heart of Europe’s most iconic cities – Amsterdam, Paris, Moscow, Vienna, Cologne, and Budapest—be in the thick of things without the hassle of bus-hopping, 5am wake-up calls, and living out of a suitcase! River cruising allows an immersive experience that includes regional cuisine, fine wines and local beers, enriching excursions and meaningful tours offered by local guides, all in an intimate yet limited-contact environment of less than 200 like-minded guests.

    Choose from journeys along the Rhine, Danube, Seine, Rhone, Saone, the Douro, the Volga, and more. River cruising has now also expanded well beyond Europe. Options are now available on the epically scenic and mighty Yangtze, Mekong, Irrawaddy, Ganges, Nile, and Amazon Rivers. Whatever option you choose, you’ll get there in style and comfort onboard a modern, world-class ship with limited guest capacities, tailored to your relaxation.

    With amazing destination choices, the world is the limit, and it’s calling on you to discover its treasures while making lasting memories with your loved ones. Don’t wait any longer, contact your Vacation Consultant today to make it happen during our exceptional World Explorer Sale!
