Luxury Cruising
A short Tour Of Banff, Canada
  by Samantha Mancia 
The town of Banff is located within Banff National Park, Canada's oldest national park featuring mountainous terrain, glaciers, ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes. The town itself is very tourist friendly, with lots of shops, dining and bars within the walkable city center. In the town of Banff, no buildings are allowed to be built taller than three stories high to ensure that the view of Cascade Mountain is unobstructed. The only exception is the Fairmont Banff Springs, which is nestled in the alpine trees just outside of town. 
For our full day in Banff we did a combo tour. The first half consisted of touring the Banff area. It was great to see the highlights in town and learn about the history, though we were disappointed we didn't get to view much wildlife. 
Phil and Carol explore Amsterdam
and the Dutch C ountryside
by Phil Swartz

The Amsterdam Central T rain Station is the heart of the city featuring a major shopping center with lots of shops and restaurants on the level above the train tracks. One of the places I stopped by is a grocery store I remembered from my last visit here. It’s always interesting to me to watch the locals as they shop and to compare the prices to those back home. Some of the best local fares here are all the cheeses and the Stroopewaffles, two thin waffle-cookies with a layer of caramel or syrup between them—super good! Today it’s time for cheese, eels, and windmills. What a combination! When you think of the Netherlands, you may think of cheese and windmills, but EELS? Well, yes, that was one of our experiences today. But I’ll get to that in just a bit.
We started our day at the breakfast buffet aboard the Crystal Mahler and this is the place to fuel up for the day, omelets, slices of bread, meats, yogurt, fruits, sweetbreads etc. A good variety and great taste. Then it’s time to head out of Amsterdam into the Dutch countryside on our Crystal motor coaches. For this excursion, there are forty or forty-five people which would fit nicely on one motor coach, but Crystal wants you to be comfortable and not crowded, so we take two motor coaches and have plenty of space to spread out.
New Zealand
Wild, beautiful, unspoiled Nature
by Ignacio Maza

Imagine the world in one country, and you will have an idea of all the natural wonders that New Zealand has to offer. Think snow-capped peaks soaring over 12,000 feet into the sky, sand dunes, dramatic fjords, gushing geysers, active volcanoes, impenetrable rain forests, glowworm caves, sandy beaches, countless islands, seas teeming with marine wildlife, and the greenest countryside you ever saw – and that’s just for starters. 
No matter what active pursuit or adventure you dream of, chances are you will find it in New Zealand -- not to mention discovering new ways to get a rush of adrenalin you did not know existed. This is the country that invented Bungy Jumping, jet boats, and zorbing – which is rolling downhill inside a giant plastic ball. (I am not making this up!) New Zealand is known for its world-class fishing, hiking, sailing, kayaking, golfing, biking, whale-watching, and opportunities to swim with dolphins and seals, to name just a few options.
