Hurtigruten Midnatsol
CRUISES | by: SUSAN KIME

"Hark, now hear the sailors cry/Smell the sea and feel the sky/Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic,” Van Morrison wrote these lyrics back in the 1970s, and those same words, “into the mystic,” followed me like a determined seagull on the Hurtigruten Midnatsol voyage I took this past February.

Seated in a private bamboo pod, guests are invited to dine among Thailand’s rainforest while strung high above the ground with 360-degree views. In case that wasn’t enough, just wait until you watch your personal server deliver your meal via zip-line acrobatics.

The main pool at Azul Sensatori Jamaica
RESORTS & SPAS | by: CHANIZE THORPE

In the past, all-inclusive resorts weren’t considered a luxury vacation.
