Sail to the Heart of Your Destination

Viking River Cruises

On a Viking ship, you will sail into the heart of your destination, so you can explore up close and in depth. Viking’s innovative and award-winning Longships have set the standard in river cruising: their intimate vessels have all the amenities of a fine hotel, providing the ideal opportunity to unpack once and comfortably be transported each day to and from your next destination — where enriching discoveries are usually just a short walk from your ship. Destination focused culinary experiences, beverages, shore excursions and Wi-Fi are complimentary.

World Cruise 2018: La Grande Bellezza

Silversea Cruises

180 Days Traveling the World in Luxury and Comfort

121 Days Traveling the World in Luxury and Comfort

It is, indeed, a beautiful world and this magnificent voyage from Los Angeles to Rome casts a spotlight on all of its richness — mesmerizing landscapes like the blue lagoons of Polynesia and splendors of New Zealand. Ancient wonders from Angkor Wat and the Taj Mahal to the epic monuments that straddle the banks of the Red Sea.

The ingenuity of modern-day man is also on display: Sydney’s Opera House, the Petronas Towers of Kuala Lumpur, the soaring skylines of Singapore and Hong Kong, forever competing in a global race skyward. La Grande Bellezza was designed to encompass priceless treasures like these. Although the ultimate prize may be more metaphysical — the pampered indulgence of your butler, the intimate ship and highly personalized service, the luxury of your spacious suite and culinary excellence and diversity of the cuisine — the joy of a Silversea journey, itself.
