To enhance your experience, on every voyage we bring along some of the world’s most respected scholars, authors, historians, archaeologists, naturalists, journalists, diplomats, artists, musicians, adventurers, even chefs. In their shipboard lectures and talks ashore, these special guest experts will open your eyes to the richness of the destinations we visit, allowing you to understand them and experience them in ways you never imagined possible. But they will also be part of our shipboard community. You’ll have meals with them. You’ll chat with them on deck, or over a cocktail. You’ll come to know them as friends.
