Clipper Cruise Line will continue its tradition of comfortable, small-ship voyages to some of the world’s most diverse destinations in 2005. Highlights of 2005 itineraries include a World War II South Pacific Campaign journey in the South Pacific, from Sydney to Guam. The 16-day cruise will visit Guadalcanal, Plum Pudding (where JFK and his crew swam ashore after their PT 109 was sunk), Vella Lavella (home to the Marine Corps pilots nicknamed the Black Sheep Squadron), and the Japanese strongholds on Bougainville. There’s an optional post cruise extension to Iwo Jima.

A 15-day Antiquities of the Mediterranean and North Africa sailing takes passengers between Portugal and Malta. The itinerary visits the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Sabratha and Leptis Magna in Libya, recently reopened to U.S. tourists after the lifting of State Department travel restrictions in effect for two decades.

A 17-day Expedition to the Fjords of Eastern Greenland sails round trip from Reykjavik to the breathtaking fjords and glaciers of Iceland and Greenland. Zodiac launches will also take passengers to remote islets and coves.

An eight-day America’s Last Coast journey travels between Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia, with an optional post cruise extension to the Canadian Rockies. And, an 8-day Fall Foliage in New England cruise between New York and Boston treats guests to a stunning autumnal display.

The St. Luis-based Clipper Cruise line operates the 102-passenger Nantucket Clipper, 122-passenger Clipper Adventurer, 128-passenger Clipper Odyssey, and 138-passenger Yorktown Clipper.
