Join us in late 2018 to cruise on the beautiful new ms Koningsdam as we explore the Mediterranean and then cruise across the south Atlantic to Fort Lauderdale, enjoying fascinating ports and leisurely days at sea. We have two delightful nights in Rome prior to the cruise. This is our favourite annual tradition that grants us the opportunity to celebrate the year with old friends and welcome those new to Craig Travel. We look forward to seeing you on board. Shorter segments are available if you are unable to join us for the full voyage. As in the past, with sufficient interest we will plan and operate our own private excursions in most ports visited.
