Dog sledding in Alaska, surfing in Hawaii, exploring unique wildlife in South America, four-wheeling through the rainforest or finding the very best turquoise waters on a Caribbean beach --- you name it, we can find it!! - Sharing your experiences: Cruising offers unique opportunities to meet other travelers and you'll share new experiences that you won't find with other types of vacations. With plenty of fun group activities, get ready to create unforgettable memories and make friendships that last a lifetime. - Become an expert -- or possibly meet one: Many cruise lines offer special on-board enrichment programs that immerse you in the things you love most -poetry and prose, fine wine, regional cooking, antiques, artwork, wildlife and music are just a few of the many choices. - Experience more: Waking up in a brand new port of call is part of the unique thrill of cruising. And with nearly every new port, you'll have numerous opportunities ashore. Jungle safaris, historic city tours, dolphin encounters, scuba and snorkeling are just a few of the exciting shore excursions you can add to your package. - Togetherness and fellowship: There's no better way to travel for large groups of friends and/or family than a cruise. Get your staterooms all on the same deck, dine at the same restaurants on board, enjoy a Broadway-style show together and of course, there's so much more. But best of all, there's something fun for everyone (including children's' programs).
