THIS ISN’T YOUR TRADITIONAL
MEET & GREET
More than famous landmarks or photo-worthy sights, people make places unique and lend destinations a sense of character. You might not always remember every museum you visited, but personal connections with engaging locals will stay with you long after your voyage comes to an end.
With our Cruise Global, Meet Local tour collection, we open the door to family farms, private homes, and other exclusive venues where you’ll learn about local life from the people that call these destinations home.
Get to know your welcoming hosts and share in their life experiences that offer a deeper appreciation and understanding of your destination. Traditions come to life in these intimate settings that bring you to the living heart of local culture.
