Luxury cruise lines are seeing an unprecedented boom in bookings and this looks set to continue well into the future. Perceiving this specific demand, Explora Journeys are breaking new ground with their novel iteration of opulent cruising. While lavish suites on all-inclusive ships are topping the charts, there’s a penchant to splash out on multi-day city stays as part of evermore extravagant and far-flung itineraries.
From the valleys to the glaciers, Alaska cruises are the perfect getaways for travelers who want to explore vast landscapes where picturesque views and opportunities to be up close with amazing wildlife are plentiful.

Two of our lucky team members were recently given the opportunity to cruise on board Celebrity Cruises' amazing purpose-built expedition vessel, Celebrity Flora, around the Galapagos Islands.
I was lucky enough to be given this amazing trip by my fantastic boss James Cole, to experience the cruise of a lifetime alongside my lovely colleague Emma Taylor.
Celebrity Cruises made the whole process seamless. When we arrived at our hotel in Quito it was explained to us that we should take it easy with it being our first night in the second highest city in the world. We were greeted by hotel staff who gave us some special tea for acclimatization to the high altitude.

Perfected luxury, but whispered in a relaxed way, is a hallmark of Silversea Cruises who has been refining cruising as an art form since its founding in 1994. The vision was simple: to launch a cruise line that offered guests the chance to navigate sea lanes less travelled in unprecedented comfort. That ambition has been realised with ten incomparable ships offering a cornucopia of immersive travel experiences in over 900 destinations – more than any other cruise line.
"Nothing can elevate travel quite like cuisine."
We really enjoyed our time on board Seven Sea Voyager, especially with the variety of restaurants on offer and overall dining experience. The food was exceptional and mealtimes on the ship were made easy with flexible sitting times and a range of formal and informal restaurants, including dining in your suite which was a firm favourite for myself in the mornings. My butler soon became used to my regular order of Eggs Benedict, followed by the most delicious Brioche French Toast!

As it happens, Clare was the very first guest to step on board Azzurra – an absolute honour and an unforgettable experience!
