Desderi Travel Club's Grand Tours
As promised on the Douro River, there will be a new and exclusive Desderi Travel Club charter the autumn of 2019. We settled on Provenc, Francee – in and out of Lyon – with cruises on the rivers Rhône and Saône. Still with the river cruise specialist CroisiEurope, on a ship very similar to the MS Gil Eanes. It is, however, smaller as it only accommodates 104 fortunate passengers.More Details
CroisiEurope’s new venture in Southern Africa is a safari planned around their new ship ”the African Dream”. The ship that will traverse rivers and lakes is small and rather exclusive. All she can accommodate is 16 passengers in 8 cabins. The cruise on Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe lasts three exciting days, with Johannesburg and three days at the luxurious Cascade Lodge in Botswana with safaris in Botswana, Namibia and Zambia. The tour ends at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge – a short drive from the cascading Victoria Falls.More Details
The fall of 2020, Trond and Roald will have owned Cascina Desderi for 17 years – and their oldest wine from 2003 is a real vintage Barbera. To be invited by SeaDream Yacht Club to be one of their preferred wine producers on a wine voyage, is not only an honour – but a dream-come-true for the two vintners. The wine cellars of Cascina Desderi are bountiful, and the finest vintages will be part of the selection on board this Desderi & SeaDream Wine Voyage. Join us in September/October 2020, and taste the wines of Cascina Desderi matched with the finest ingredients and dishes created by the SeaDream chef d’cuisine.
An all-inclusive wine voyage:
The wines served onboard are of excellent quality – the pouring wines as well as the famous vintages with a surcharge. The SeaDream cruises are all inclusive, the delicious dishes are matched with the finest wines and Champagne. Wines, cocktails, long drinks, cognacs and liqueurs and of course Champagne are available during the day and evening and night from the Top-of-the-Yacht-bar.More Details
The group from Desderi Travel Club that crossed the Pacific Ocean January/February 2019 on Crystal Serenity, nicknamed themselves the “Pacific Group” for WhatsApp communication.
The crossing was spectacular, and at our farewell dinner we made an oath “to do it again”!
Now we are indeed doing it again:
The new cruise will be on the somewhat smaller, but equally luxurious and comfortable Crystal Symphony. This new cruise will be an all-inclusive 14-day-crossing from Dubai to Mumbai, where we have a fine balance of interesting ports of call and seadays.
We’ll visit new and expansive cities along the Arabian Peninsula –
where innovative architecture is stooped in the traditional way of live. Here we find Camels and Cadillacs side by side, shopping malls and souks next to each other – and Veiled women and Versace-dressed men hand in hand. This is a cruise of contrasts – ending up in the extreme capital of contrasts; Mumbai, India.
Do join us onboard the Symphony!More Details
