FOUR BLISSFUL JOURNEYS
An insider’s look at upcoming voyages
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.
