From wedding anniversaries, birthdays, and graduations, to promotions, retirements, and just making it through all the unexpected challenges this year – the list of milestones and accomplishments waiting to be celebrated is nearly endless. And what better way for you to commemorate a job well done than by getting out and exploring the world! Celebration travel with families and friends reuniting to honor the delayed landmark achievements is being booked in record numbers. A river cruise is the perfect setting for long-lasting memories. New ships for 2021 offer travelers a wide range of options for their "travel pods."
