here are some things you can rely upon. The sun will


rise every day, tulips will always brighten the Dutch landscape come spring and the cruise industry will wow us each year with a host of new ships offering incredible features and exciting itineraries heading to amazing places around the world. This year is no exception, with


more than a dozen ships on the way, boasting speedy go-karts, fairytale restaurants, underwater lounges and cabins with infinity balconies. Fancy a cruise to the South Pole, to admire Canada’s fall foliage or to travel around Australia? All that and more is on its way over the next 12 months. And that’s just the ocean- going ships. River cruise lines are launching vessels with swimming pools, swanky suites and new places to eat across Europe, Asia and the US (see p59 for a rundown of the new river ships). Our calendar will help you


keep abreast of the exciting new things in store for your clients. Prices listed are cruise-only unless stated otherwise and other inclusions might apply. Contact the cruise lines directly for more information.
