Q. You’re the Cruise Director on our National Geographic river cruises, how do those sailings differ from our standard departures?
A. The two experts on board are incredible. One is an expert on the region we’re visiting and the second is a National Geographic photographer. They do lectures and workshops on board that open our eyes to so many things we didn’t know before, plus they are genuinely interested in interacting with our guests and being part of the whole cruise experience. Because they are on board for the entire cruise, you will find them at dinner, on excursions, having a drink in the lounge, doing all the same things as the rest of the guests. This makes them very approachable – which they also make clear they enjoy.
These departures also offer special excursions, most of which provide exclusive access to places such as museums or archaeological sites, giving our guests more opportunities to explore.
