WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

I like the combination of a small cruise ship with the educational aspect of the Smithsonian. The group was small enough to allow everyone to mingle. The emphasis was on art, and it allowed me the opportunity to explore art collections I wouldn't normally have access to. 

- Previous Journeys Traveler

Fascinating experience, good company, enriched by educational component. 

- Previous Journeys Traveler

Breathtaking natural beauty coupled with excellent education regarding American artists who painted in Maine.
