The winter edition of LATTE‘s sister brand consumer magazine, Signature Luxury Travel & Style, has been released this week and celebrates everything about travel’s fastest-growing industry: cruising.
Issue 30 has been bumped up 160 pages to 176 – including 50 pages devoted to cruising and yachting – to bring readers even more of the world’s finest travel and lifestyle experiences.
More Australians are setting sail on ocean cruises than ever – 1.34 million of us, or almost six per cent of the population, according to the latest figures from Cruise Lines International Association Australasia – and discerning travellers have never been exposed to such choice about where to go and which line to cruise with.
The Cruise Issue pays homage to being on the water in all its forms. Find out how Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ MS Europa 2 has raised the bar for luxury at sea, venture to the Subantarctic Islands with Ponant, board Uniworld’s latest Super Ship on the Danube and sail in the wake of Portuguese explorers on a Sea Cloud windjammer. The issue also features a family exploration of the rugged Kimberley region with True North Adventure Cruises.
Back on land, travel to the Yukon Territory in search of the Canadian northern lights and visit the 10 most remote hotels in the world, most only accessible by sky or sea. Editor-in-chief, Cathy Wagstaff, shares her newfound love for Sri Lanka, a diverse destination that well and truly deserves its place on the bucket-list.
The 2018 Best-of-the-Best Luxury Cruise Awards
Following the success of the inaugural Signature Luxury Travel & Style Cruise Awards last year, we have expanded our panel of expert judges to bring readers the definitive guide to luxury cruising.
The 12 panellists are all leading Australian travel advisors that specialise in the luxury cruise industry, and were highly recommended to us for their outstanding knowledge of cruising.
We called on their expertise to vote across 10 categories covering ocean, river and expedition cruising. In addition to the original categories, we have added the best ships for a multigenerational escape and the tour operators that elevate the cruise experience even further.
