The cruise ship scene is undeniably growing in the West as far as tourism and business is concerned. The refined ships, many of which will undergo refurbishment in 2019 or 2020, sail to destinations across the world, but one of the most popular destinations for the cruise line is Alaska Sail on the Noordam from Seattle or Vancouver all the way up to Anchorage, then extend your trip on land to reach Denali National Park or Fairbanks, a prime spot to see the Northern Lights.
The line’s newest addition, the 184-passenger Le Lapérouse , is the first of at least six Explorer-class ships designed for a combination of luxury expedition-style cruising, each featuring an infinity pool, an underwater viewing lounge, and itineraries that include destinations as far-flung as Papua New Guinea and West Africa’s Bissagos Islands.
Again, in today’s lifestyle the elegant dinner is optional, and for those who prefer to dine casually, the dinner buffet is available usually until 9 pm. Most cruise ships offer excellent cuisine, especially at dinner, in the main dining room or rooms plus offer meals at upscale specialty restaurants at additional cost.
Choose from an expedition to Antarctica or the Arctic on an all-balcony, exclusively chartered vessel; a cruise along the great rivers of Europe on a stylish river ship; or a gentle journey down a quiet canal in the French countryside on an intimate barge.
