Cruising to Machu Picchu – well, sort of…

A place that everyone must visit and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World is Machu Picchu, says Graham Sadler. And you can cruise, with a side trip to Machu Picchu  – the journey  is part of this amazing experience. 

One of the most impressive train journeys in the world is the Belmond Hiram Bingham, named after the explorer who discovered Machu Picchu. It is a luxurious and exclusive experience in stunning 20’s style carriages. Travel through the beautiful Sacred Valley and climb the Andes travelling through the Inca Empire. This is a once in a lifetime experience. 

This isn’t all though. Cruise on Seven Seas Mariner, Los Angeles to Lima, Peru, 29 October to 14 November, 2020. This cruise and land combination holiday is full of destination highlights and they just keep coming –  after leaving Los Angeles you visit Cabo San Lucas and Acapulco, in Mexico; Puerto Quettzal, Guatemala; Corinto, Nicaragua; Puntaarenas, Costa Rica; Esmeraldas and Manta, both in Ecuador, and Salaverry, Peru. 

This is an explorer’ dream vacation and ideal for anyone who wants to see variety, beauty, history, culture and so much more! 

Seven Seas Mariner, the first all-balcony cruise ship in the world, was launched in 2001. She has eight decks and carries a maximum of 700 passengers, looked after by a crew of 445.  Like the rest of the ships in the Regent Seven Sea Cruises fleet, she is all-inclusive, which covers your choice of dining – say fine French, Italian or champion steaks – and wines, gratuities and most land excursions.
