Virtuoso Traveler

Our go-to hot spot to escape winter’s chill? Yes, it’s the Caribbean. We’re calling it a comeback, but the fact is, nearly three-quarters of the region was unaffected by 2017’s hurricane season, and many islands that received only a glancing blow were back in business soon thereafter. We’ll show you where to go now – and how to support ongoing recovery efforts (hint: It starts with tourism). Also inside our special On the Water issue: haute hotel boats, lakeside retreats, cultural river cruises, inside Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, Venice with kids, and ten key questions to determine if you could be a cruiser (we’re betting the answer is yes).
