Maybe you don’t necessarily consider yourself a “cruise person” but you are excited by the idea of active adventures, unforgettable wildlife experiences, and meeting the locals. The focus of UnCruise, a small expedition cruise, is to provide a backstage pass to a destination’s wilderness, wildlife and culture, in a way that larger ships (and sometimes other methods of travel) do not allow. Hike, snorkel, paddle board or explore by skiffs. Of course there's a set itinerary, but if the captain sees and opportunity to get up close and personal with a family of whales, you're certainly going to veer off course. No nightclubs or casinos here, just you and the great outdoors.

Seabourn ships are large enough to provide all the luxury amenities & comforts, yet small enough to sail into marquee ports of call impossible for larger ships. Itineraries offer opportunities for first-time cruisers to explore new destinations and also seasoned cruisers to see less-traveled locations. In addition to wonderful conversational events with experts in arts, sciences, politics, and humanities as well as renowned chefs and celebrated performers, Seabourn most recently announced its wellness partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil. This mindful living program offers a Wellness Guide on every sailing and aside from the daily meditation (giving you positive affirmations to carry throughout the day) and yoga offerings, it will also include seminars based on Dr. Weil’s best-selling books. Dr. Weil will also be sailing and lecturing at various times throughout the year. This is the first of its kind program at sea and I’m thrilled to be able to offer this to my clients!

One of the aspects that make Uniworld ships special, is the distinctive décor inspired by each destination. There’s the S.S. Antoinette, fashioned after Marie Antoinette’s 18th-century Chateau de Versailles; the S.S. Maria Theresa, which some have described as a floating baroque Viennese palace; or the brand-new S.S. Joie de Vivre, inspired by 20th-century Paris. Add to this a healthy dose of wellness programs at sea, including yoga or TRX on deck, fitness center, spa, and certified onboard wellness instructors, and you have all the elements of a truly restful vacation. Uniworld provides tailored programs for families through their “Generations Program”, and “U by Uniworld Cruises” allows millennial travelers to sail with like-minded peers and enjoy active and age-appropriate excursions. When it comes to truly “all-inclusive”, it’s hard to top Uniworld and its in-suite butler service, unlimited beverages, onboard local entertainment and signature lectures.
