  Virtuoso Traveler - The New Wave

Water, it has been said, is our planet’s most valuable resource. Without it, life as we know it – and so many of our favorite travel experiences – would cease to exist. That’s why we’ve devoted our latest issue of Virtuoso Traveler to celebrating all things H20. Hang ten on surfing-based adventures, raise a toast on chic floating bars, find stylish swimwear for the whole family, and learn how responsible travel providers are working to protect the world’s great waterways. Also inside: We’ll show you how to explore crowd-free Venice (hint: It involves a vintage yacht), where to find the best beaches (and flavors of homemade ice cream) on Cape Cod, and why it’s time to look at cruising in a whole new light (explorations via submarine and onboard cooking classes with celebrated chefs, anyone?).

Virtuoso Life - The Hotel Issue


Hotels are more than merely a place to stay. They woo us not with details of their hotels, but instead with vivid descriptions of what we can do there. Hotels large and small now engage guests with ever-changing programs. The same movement is also happening with cruise lines and, in fact, transcends the travel industry as part of what’s called the experience economy, where businesses offer their clients memorable events – and the memory itself becomes the product. 

Staying Power
In large and small ways, hotels are making the world a better place.
