When our travel agent tried to “sell” us a top-shelf cruise we pictured the glamorous lifestyles of the rich and the famous – real and imagined – international super spies, Monte Carlo habitués, and wine and food aficionados all promenading on the decks of luxury liners.
Imagined, that is, until we discovered the swellegance of sailing aboard three magnificent vessels that define the stuff that sea dreams are made of: the clubby, grand resort-style Celebrity Equinox, Azamara Club’s Quest, and the more intimate, allinclusive Regent’s Seven Seas Voyager.

Hej! Greetings from Sweden! Your darling journalist has gone international. In this new year, I will make several trips abroad to report from Scandinavia, land of blondes, fjords, IKEA, ABBA, and Nordic men who are tall, built, and sexy…but I digress.
Peering out the window to a spectacular vista from my suite at the Grand Hotel here in Stockholm-which is built on fourteen islands and is considered the capital of Scandinavia-I stand beside Henrik Lindholm, Mr. Gay Sweden. What a cutie! He was crowned last night in the elegant Berns Hotel ballroom.
