WHAT’S TRENDING: SAILING SEASON 2022/23 Word is, Albert Einstein used to go sailing in his free time. These days, our favorite celebrity sailors include Morgan Freeman, Kate Hudson, Stephen Colbert, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, Ed Sheeran, and Beyoncé. So what’s everyone doing for Sailing Season 22/23? Quite a lot, it seems.

Pop Culture Cruising Music, best-selling books, and high-end hobbies are becoming reasons to travel in and of themselves. And cruise suppliers are happy to oblige.

So Far, So Good Extended length voyages and back-to-back cruises are all the rage this year. Apparently, the exhilaration of being out in the world is little a bit addictive. For the deeply committed, Hurtigruten’s 93-day Pole-to-Pole voyage is an epic, destination-rich extravaganza. Windstar’s Star Collector cruises span up to 79 days and explore everything from the Far East to the far corners of Europe. Viking has a spectacular 138-day World Cruise. Silversea’s 140-day World Cruise is already on waitlist status.

2

Uniworld is offering floating art workshops, while Lindblad has a soft spot for photography nuts. American Queen Voyages is throwing a “music festival” cruise with the Blues, Rock & Roll, Country, even a Sock Hop. Celebrity Cruises include jazz-, rock-, disco-, and flower power-themed Caribbean sailings with starstudded onboard entertainment. Avalon Waterways has been getting a lot of attention for their Storyteller Series—European river cruises hosted by authors including Candace Bushnell, Cheryl Strayed, Gillian Flynn, and Christopher Moore, as well as singer-songwriter Edwin McCain, and alt-rock band Sister Hazel. Hosted by a Formula One® racing expert, Windstar’s Grand Prix sailing to Monte Carlo features premier grandstand event seats, a visit to the pits, a themed cocktail party, and more.


One With Nature Reconnecting with the natural world has been a growing trend for a couple years now and suppliers haven’t let us down. This year, exotic rivers are a growing trend. We’re torn between seeing the wildlife with AmaWaterways along Namibia’s Chobe River and their 2023 exploration of Colombia’s Magdalena River. Aboard Uniworld’s boutique river ships, travelers can choose to explore the Amazon, Nile, Mekong, or Ganges. Coastal cruising is also getting into nature with Celebrity’s expedition cruises in The Galapagos and scuba diving excursions. Silversea finds the ultimate in serenity on intimate all-inclusive explorations of Antarctica. And while Lindblad is known for their Arctic and Antarctic expeditions, we’re loving their 5 to 9-day Wild Escapes.

Culinary Obsessions Journeys that revolve around food, wine, and cocktails aren’t going out of style any time soon. In fact, they’re getting decidedly more interesting as suppliers offer greater access to celebrated chefs, rare vintages, and esoteric ingredients. Windstar’s partnership with the James Beard Foundation is a foodie’s dream. Chef Irene Li of Boston’s Mei Mei restaurant, is hosting a culinary cruise with them this fall. Indian-born Canadian Chef Vikram Vij returns to Europe with Avalon Waterways to host a Danube Dreams culinary cruise. Aboard Uniworld ships, Connoisseur Collection cruises include voyages designed specifically for lovers of French cuisine. And American Queen Voyages has a 9-day “American spirit” cruise through Kentucky’s bourbon region. 3
