While visiting McLeod Ganj in the Himalayan mountains, we went on a half day trekking trip to the top of a mountain, camped there for the night, and then paraglided down the following morning. This was one of the most adventurous things we have done while traveling, and was a memory of a lifetime.

It has been many long years since I craved luxury, if I ever did. My mother used to tell people I didn’t care about “that stuff” … even when I was young. I was surprised that she had noticed because it was true. I wanted things that were interesting and different, but luxury never entered into it.

If you have ever cruised on an older ship before, the Escape is going to wow you with all of its modern updates, sleek designs, the number of activities available, and how it has become a foodie destination at sea.
