Redis­cov­er­ing DE­LIGHT­FUL des­ti­na­tions

Every­one al­ready has an idea of the Caribbean – sun and sand, col­or­ful rum drinks and gen­tly sway­ing palm trees. But then you start ex­plor­ing the smaller is­lands of the South­ern Caribbean and some­thing changes. It may be the wa­ter­falls of Do­minica or the de­sign­ers of St. Barts; the sugar mills of St. Kitts or the drift­wood of An­tigua; the cos­mopoli­tan bus­tle of St. Maarten or the splen­did iso­la­tion of Jost van Dyke … one way or an­other, you find a hid­den truth about the world.

Se­abournOdyssey 14-day round-trip Bar­ba­dos voy­ages on March 4, 18 and April 1, 2017 Cel­e­brat­ing a HAR­MO­NIOUS way of life

The wa­ters where the South China and Sulu Seas flow to­gether are a world unto them­selves, a zone where the an­cient civ­i­liza­tion (and ul­tra-mod­ern cityscape) of Xi­a­men runs in­dis­tin­guish­ably into the trop­i­cal la­goons of the Hun­dred Is­lands. Manila and Bo­ra­cay are not just where cul­tures meet, but where they set­tle down to form new fam­i­lies: East Asia joins hands with the South Pa­cific, and English lyrics to a Ta­ga­log song un­fold over Span­ish rhythms.

Se­abournSo­journ 14-day Hong Kong to Sin­ga­pore voy­ages on Jan­uary 21 and Fe­bru­ary 18, 2017 Un­lock­ing an JOY­OUS un­der­stand­ing

The South Amer­i­can coast is more than just a line of beaches. It’s a set of bound­aries there for the cross­ing, some vis­i­ble and some in­vis­i­ble. Rio de Janeiro is a joy­ous cross­roads of cul­tures: African, Euro­pean, South Amer­i­can. Il­ha­bela, an is­land UNESCO Bio­sphere Re­serve, is where the hu­man world bliss­fully meets na­ture. Cross­ing the Equa­tor, one en­ters the Ama­zon River, where fresh and salt wa­ters meet like tran­quil­ity meet­ing de­light.

Se­abournQuest 21-day Buenos Aires to Manaus voy­age on Fe­bru­ary 23, 2017 Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing an IDYL­LIC es­cape

Cer­tain cities are prac­ti­cally po­ems in their own right. In Man­ga­lore, cen­turies-old Catholic churches seem to rhyme with even older Hindu tem­ples. Colombo is a city of sap­phires and spices. On Sir Bani Yas Is­land, the civ­i­lized splen­dor of Abu Dhabi gives way to na­ture’s majesty – where the same visitor can won­der at the world’s largest hand­made Per­sian rug and the rare grace of a herd of en­dan­gered Ara­bian oryx.
