We Are:

One Upscale Cruise Line: Windstar Cruises

Seattle-based Windstar Cruises specializes in small ship vacations that are “180 Degrees from Ordinary®.” Glorious 148- to 310-passenger sailing ships and luxurious 212-passenger motor yachts visit bucket list destinations such as the stunning fjords of Norway, the friendly Greek Isles, ethereal French Polynesia, the wilds of Alaska and the hidden harbors of the Caribbean. Your clients may leave their jackets and ties at home and be pampered by a crew that knows their name. We like to say, “upscale, but not uptight.”

Four fine hotels: The Oasis at Death Valley, the Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel, The Grand Hotel at the Grand Canyon, and Cedar Creek Lodge (just outside Glacier National Park)

Oasis

The Oasis at Death Valley

Thanks to a more than $100 million renovation, The Oasis at Death Valley has reclaimed its former glory. At the AAA Four Diamond Inn at Death Valley guests can stay in stylish rooms and suites in the 66-room Inn or in 22 new, private one-bedroom casitas, on a property edged with lush gardens and date palms, an aquifer-fed swimming pool (an always inviting 87 degrees) and sweeping views of Death Valley and the Panamint Mountains.

For families and the more adventurous, the historic 224-room Ranch at Death Valley has also been redesigned with a mission-style town square, a new general store, and new restaurants including the must-see Last Kind Words Saloon – straight out of a western movie.
