Our guests absolutely love our Cirque Dreams & Dinner shows, and we are thrilled to offer three new over-the-top shows, providing a whole new entertainment experience for both our new and returning guests. Designed by world-renowned Broadway director and Cirque Dreams founder Neil Goldberg, each of the three ships will offer a unique Cirque Dreams & Dinner experience, featuring unique themes, costumes, and acrobatics, specific to the show onboard.

5 Reasons To Cruise Out Of Your Comfort Zone

For many, a cruise outside of sand and sun is daunting, outside of one’s cruise comfort zone. I love choosing a cruise based on how many places I haven’t seen. Sure, I was pretty freaked about my Grand European Tour with Viking River, only because I was turning 20 during the trip, which freaked me out, and I was worried I’d be very lonely due to the age difference in guests. Looking back now – for as worried as I was – that cruise was the definition of meaningful travel – new places, new people, new moments – and I would have never experienced it had I not cruised out of my comfort zone.
