2019 Atlanta > Fort Lauderdale

Wonderful rhythms

From the charm of America’s Deep South to the languid bliss of Caribbean island life, this is an itinerary where laidback meets easy-going.
Explore the jewels of the southern United States, from Graceland in Memphis to Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, and you’ll be left with an abiding sense that you’ve been transported to a place where things move to a very different beat. This is a region where music isn’t just part of the culture, it’s part of the rhythm of daily life. From there, this itinerary takes you to more exotic climates, and equally joyful tempos on your Caribbean cruise.
