Benefits of Embarking on a Luxury Cruise or Tour

The Quality You Expect – Luxury cruise and tour providers uniquely understand your personal needs and how to provide the quality you are accustomed to. From extensive wine lists and premier toiletries to limousine transfers and exemplary service, they take care of all your needs.

Unique Experiences – Luxury providers understand that you seek to experience the world in your own distinctive way. They offer a wealth of choices, each one more unique than the next, so that you can find the perfect way to spend your day wherever you are.

Unique Itineraries – Due to their smaller size, luxury tours and cruises offer itineraries that include more off-the-beaten-path destinations than larger groups and vessels can access. These boutique destinations provide a more organic cultural experience, creating authentic memories you will always cherish.

A Focus on Well-Being – To help you escape from the daily grind, luxury travel providers offer a wide range of vitality and wellness options, from golfing and tai chi to massages and acupuncture.

Everything is Included – Luxury travel providers will never “nickel-and-dime” you. From premium liquors and gourmet meals to complimentary shore excursions and professional performances, nearly everything your heart desires is included in the upfront price.

Artful Cuisine – Luxury travel providers go to great lengths to offer an excellent range of premium cuisine. Celebrity chefs are often consulted to create inspiring dishes you will not find anywhere else. Onboard sommeliers help you pair the perfect wine to every course.  And while the dining venues you experience with these providers will rival those in New York, you always have the option to dine in your room or on your balcony whenever the mood strikes.

Knowledge is Key – When traveling to a remote and completely foreign location, it helps to rely on someone with first-hand knowledge. A travel consultant, for example, can be trusted to tell you the best way to get from the airport to your hotel, which hotels are best for western travelers, and which local tour guides provide the best experiences.

Saves You Time – Planning a trip to an exotic corner of the world is a huge challenge for many travelers. Tours and cruise excursions take care of all the details for you, so you do not have to spend countless hours researching how to, for example, get to and purchase tickets for the most interesting museums.

No Worries – When you’re on a tour or a cruise, you have very little to worry about. Your tour guide or excursion leader will help you overcome the language barrier while taking you to see all the must-see sites, where you often get VIP, front-of-the-line access. Your group is automatically taken to quality restaurants where you can sample local specialties without having to translate the menu. Your guide gives you key insider information, like where the closest post office or pharmacy is located.

Insider Access – When you travel to more exotic destinations there may be very little published information to help you discover off the beaten path treasures and hidden jewels away from the crowds.  Your local guides can help you encounter the unforgettable experiences that you will be talking about for years.

New Destinations Everyday – Traveling to an exotic corner of the world takes time, so it becomes difficult to experience a great portion of it during one vacation. A cruise, however, is the perfect way to see major cities in many countries, so you feel like you’ve encountered more of the region. A tour often covers several countries, or they can thoroughly canvas one country so that you experience a new town or region everyday.

Explore at Your Pace – A travel agent can match you with a guided vacation that perfectly fits your expectations, physical ability and desired pace, whether you want a relaxing and enlightening tour of Scottish castles or a face-paced trip that covers five countries in one week. For those who enjoy independent travel, your agent can arrange a hotel package, which includes centrally-located hotels to base your adventures, as well as a local host to provide key insider information, like where the best off-the-beaten-path restaurants or a pharmacy is located.

Saves You Time – Planning a trip that comprehensively covers one country or attempts to tackle many different countries is a huge challenge for many travelers. Guided vacations take care of all the details for you, so you do not have to spend countless hours researching how to get from bus terminal A to ferry dock B, for example. Plus, they transfer your bags for you at each stage of the trip, giving you more time to enjoy the locale with ease.

No Worries – When you’re on a guided vacation, you have very little to worry about. You have help overcoming the language barrier. You get to see all the must-see sites, where you often get VIP, front-of-the-line access. Your group is automatically taken to quality restaurants where you can sample local specialties without having to translate the menu.

Incredible Rates – Tour providers who offer packages are able to obtain special rates since they buy in bulk. Your travel agent passes these savings on to you, creating a flight/transfers/hotel/tour package for a lot less than you could on your own.

Help when You Need It – Since one company is in charge of every aspect of your journey, your local guides are in a better position to smooth over any unforeseen bumps or hiccups that may arise. Plus, in circumstances like a flight cancellation the tour provider works with your travel agent to find a new flight so that you don’t miss one day of the itinerary.

Europe by Sea – A New Approach to the Old World


Incredible Diversity – Cruise itineraries offer a wide diversity of ports to make your vacation truly memorable. On one Mediterranean cruise you can experience Spain, France, Italy and Croatia. Sail the Baltic Sea and you can visit not just the mesmerizing countries of Scandinavia, but also Russia and Estonia.

Leaving a Ship is Easier than Crossing a Border – Visiting many different countries by land is great in theory, until you have to deal with border crossings. A cruise ship makes it easy: all you do is walk down the gangplank, and you’re instantly in a new country; the cruise staff handles all border control matters on your behalf.

See History Approaching – Nothing compares to sitting on your veranda, watching an historic sea port like Barcelona or Stockholm come slowly into view.
