Antarctica Cruise
Antarctica the Dreamscape
02/13/19 by 9th-time traveler Georgia
As a Group Coordinator and fellow traveler on EF Go Ahead's Antarctica Cruise, I can only describe the experience as akin to having a dream from which one hopes never to awaken!

Antarctica Cruise
wildlife-viewing adventure
08/19/18 by 4th-time traveler Erica
This was the best wildlife adventure ever and the historical aspects were just as amazing. The Galapagos cruise was the best part. It was nonstop hiking, snorkeling, and exploring the untouched wild with an intimate small group of about 8 people.

Travel tips for Land and Cruise tours

What are some interesting things to do on a land and sea trip?

On our land and cruise tours you can:

  • Learn about your destination—and ask lots of questions—during engaging, expert-led talks on board your ship  
  • Treat your cruise tour as an opportunity to discover local cuisine while dining aboard your ship
  • Sail to destinations overnight, enjoying views of lit-up skylines and landscapes from the water along the way
  • Explore temples, cities, and unspoiled landscapes on foot by day, and bond with your fellow travelers on board your ship in the evening

When is the best time of year to go on a land and cruise tour?

When it comes to timing for land and cruise tours, consider where you want to go, and what kind of weather you hope to enjoy. If you’re looking at land and sea cruises in Northern Europe, like our Scandinavia: The Capitals & Fjords cruise tour, for example, the best times to travel will be spring, summer, and fall, when weather is warmer. If you’re browsing land and cruise tours to Egypt, like our Egypt & the Nile River Cruise tour, consider traveling between October and April, when temperatures are milder and more pleasant for spending time outside. If you have your sights set on a vacation tour and cruise to China, like our China: Beijing, Yangtze River Cruise & Shanghai tour, consider traveling in spring or fall. Summers in China can be hot, and winters can be quite cold.

What should I pack for a land and cruise tour?

Land and sea packages are structured a bit differently from traditional tours. So, although packing essentials such as comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and an easy-to-carry tote will come in handy, so will these items:

  • Light jackets and layers—ideally, waterproof—for cool, breezy nights on the water
  • Medication if you’re prone to seasickness
  • Binoculars for spotting birds, buildings, and other objects of interest from your bo

What should I know before going on a land and cruise trip?

Itineraries for cruises or land and sea packages are more dependent on weather conditions than land-based tours. Heavy winds, rain, and rough conditions on the water can cause the occasional delay or change in your schedule. Knowing this ahead of time will help you go with the flow.
