We’ve always enjoyed travel, both within the US and internationally.  We have traveled alone and with our two sons over the years and really believe that money is for making memories, not for accumulating things.

Our most recent international adventures began in the Napa Valley in November of 2007. We visited the Ledson Winery where we found a flier describing a Ledson trip to Australia and New Zealand aboard the Oceania Nautica. When we got home we signed up!
We left on December 31, 2008 and missed ringing in the New Year on our flight to Sydney.

Our trip to Antarctica completed a “bucket list” wish to visit all 7 continents.

So that brought us to the dream of doing a world cruise. Stay tuned for highlights of our world cruise adventures.

    This is a great site. Thank you for sharing your experience on Oceania. We are going on it for the full 180 days with 6 friends. Also looking at 2018. We have done the last 4 years Grand World on Holland and are trying this for a change.

    Is there a way I can contact you posible by email to ask some questions about Oceania and your experience.
