An insider's view of the places we explore
On select voyages, guest speakers are added to an already impressive lineup of naturalists and historians to further illuminate local life. These commentators know the region intimately and can share the stories, specialized knowledge, and local color of the places we explore. You’ll have ample opportunity to learn from them in onboard lectures, and engage with them on a one-to-one basis to learn more about their topic or backgrounds. When in South America, a wine expert may talk about the local vineyards and their effect on the national economies. Or in Alaska, a native interpreter may reveal the landscape through the filter of myth and tradition. No matter the topic, they’ll add to your appreciation and contribute a vital, but not easily discovered, facet of a region.
