The weather is finally starting to warm up, which means summer vacation season—our favorite time of year—is right around the corner. If you’re looking for some travel inspiration, we tapped our trusted advisors to tell us their top destinations for summer 2019. Also in this edition, we talked to our clients, the talented Carpenter family (they’re on the road a whopping 300 days a year!), who tell us how they combine work and leisure, as well as their favorite classical music spots around the world. And finally, we’re bringing you some of the culinary must-try’s in Cape Town’s amazing food scene.

Since its 2013 debut, the MS Europa 2 has been making a name for itself as a one of the world’s top cruise ships. In addition to spacious all-suite cabins, seven international restaurants, a luxury spa, cooking school, jazz club and theatre, the ship is an ace for golfers.
On the newly introduced Golf + Cruise voyages, you (and that special Dad in your life) can really indulge your love of the sport. On-and-off-board you can play on the most gorgeous golf courses in the world with the added bonus of a golf pro at your side every day. Thanks to the ship’s state-of-the-art 3D golf simulator, video analysis, and a resident PGA professional, you can not only practice your strokes (on your choice of top courses such as St. Andrews and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel), but your instructor can show you techniques to improve on the spot.
When the ship has entered port and it’s time to hit the golf course, every detail is taken care of — from transfers, carts, snacks, even golf club cleaning.
The 2018-19 Golf + Cruise season includes:
• Cape Town
• Singapore – Colombo
• Abu Dhabi – Dubai
• Mallorca – Monte Carlo
• Hamburg – Lisbon
• Auckland – Sydney
You and your family will be spoiled off the green too. The ship boasts the highest passenger-to-space ratio of any cruise liner. Every stateroom features a private veranda. Amenities include Nespresso coffee machine, Wi-Fi, tablet, free mini bar (beer and non-alcoholic drinks) and complimentary room service. Public spaces are filled with works by contemporary artists including Damien Hirst and David Hockney. An extensive kids club keeps the littlest cruisers satisfied too.
