PACING:
  • This trip is easy paced, but has a moderate rating due to the nature of your activities.

  • Over the course of 17 days, you’ll visit 9 ports of call in 5 different countries. Sightseeing and expeditions are usually offered in half-day tours, with time to relax every day

  • We often cruise overnight but some scenic sailing will be conducted during daylight hours

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:
  • You should be in good health to fully enjoy this tour
  • This journey does require some walking for great distances, you will be on your feet for two to three hours at a time
  • Some more challenging hikes will also be offered
  • Some of your exploration takes place in remote natural settings, historic centers, old villages and archaeological sites where you should be sure-footed
  • Most city sightseeing takes place in air-conditioned coaches with guides. In some remote locations we will use 4x4 vehicles. You should expect some long rides over occasionally bumpy terrain
  • You will have the opportunity to explore in Zodiac boats, hike, kayak, and ride bikes
  • This cruise tour is not suitable for those who have difficulty walking or require wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:
  • Your ship is your main means of transportation between destinations
  • In cities, land transportation is conducted on board deluxe, air-conditioned motorcoaches
  • Some of your island destinations are remote and rugged, so we will use 4x4 vehicles to get around
  • In some locations you will ride along uneven or bumpy roads, especially in more rural areas or at historical sites
  • You will have several opportunities to explore in small, motorized Zodiac expedition craft. Your expedition team leaders will assist with your embarkation and disembarkation on rugged shores

CLIMATE:
  • This trip takes place during the summer, when the weather is temperate and there are still ample daylight hours. It should be quite pleasant in most of your destinations. Please refer to the charts in the Before You Go section for more details
  • You will receive a complimentary wind- and rain-resistant expedition jacket as our gift. Otherwise, there will be some temperature variations, so it is important to pack accordingly. Bring several pairs of long pants, a light sweater and jacket, and even a hat and gloves for any brisk days at sea and island exploration. In general, plan on temperate weather but bring layers, just in case
  • During your days at sea it can occasionally be windy, and there is a chance of rain in all our locations
  • The sun is glaring and strong in all our destinations, so sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats are musts

Please note: Ocean cruising is not the same experience as river cruising; as such, you may experience fluctuating tides and weather patterns that may involve some rocking of your vessel. Itineraries will include all activities as planned except in extreme cases that can’t be controlled by your shipboard crew.

Important: Day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert.
