Cruise Travel July/August 2019
As featured Ship of the Month, Holland America’s Nieuw Statendam graces the cover of our July/August 2019 issue. Following in the path of sister ship Koningsdam, the new Pinnacle class crowd-pleaser brings the line’s distinguished fleet to 15.
Virgin Voyages, meanwhile, is an entirely new cruise line that promises to shake things up, writes cruise industry expert Allan E. Jordan. Its Scarlet Lady will be the first of four vessels offering some revolutionary twists. Also profiled in the July/August issue are Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, which markets short hops to the Bahamas, and Silversea Cruises’ Silver Wind, a 24-year-old ship that just underwent a makeover.
Readers who cherish lazy days at sea will enjoy the Cruise of the Month feature on a trans-Atlantic journey aboard Oceania Cruises’ Riviera, while port fans will travel vicariously to the cobblestone streets of historic San Juan, Puerto Rico, our Port of the Month. Craft beer aficionados will toast “Better Brews,” which tracks the latest beverage trend at sea.
