The "Best of the Best" Around the World
Note: The Voyager World Cruise Ended in April 28, 2006

January 10 to April 28, 2006
All travelers with a sense of adventure dream of a world cruise.  Now you can embark on a journey to match your imagination aboard the all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Voyager.  Naturally the best way to experience its sweeping scope is in its entirety on the full 108-night World Cruise, however shorter segments are available. You'll depart from Los Angeles for over three months of in-depth discovery combined with peerless, six-star luxury.  Enjoy multi-day adventures to some of the world's great wonders:  the Taj Mahal, Ayer's Rock, the Great Wall of China - even the unspoiled jewels of reclusive Myanmar.  And we also offer a host of exclusive events ashore with our compliments.  It is all part of our philosophy of providing not only an ultra-luxury cruise experience, but one that offers authentic cultural insights simply not available on an ordinary cruise or an ordinary cruise line.

Join our exclusive Le Cordon Bleu workshop. Sharpen your Bridge game. Attend one of our stimulating seminars, or two, or three. We'll call at a bevy of beautiful ports including Monte Carlo on the Cote d'Azur, the great Catalan capital of Barcelona with its fantasy Gaugi architecture, and Malaga, gateway to the Moorish Alhambra in Granada. Sip Madeira in Madeira. Golf on the emerald greens of Bermuda. Then disembark in Ft. Lauderdale, the "Venice of North America." Welcome home.
