Sample Evening Shore Excursion: Zadar Sunset Serenade
Luxury travellers will explore the gems of the Adriatic Sea on board Seven Seas Voyager, including Zadar, Croatia.
Cruising the sheltered waters of Jazine Bay as the sun begins to set, the ancient city is perfect for leisurely exploration.
Guests will disembark at the Sea Organ, a set of marble steps that plays harmonic sounds when seawater rushes through pipes fitted with whistles beneath the steps. The phenomenon is adjacent Greeting to the Sun, a solar-powered monument that creates an imaginative light show each evening. Both multi-sensory attractions helped fuel Zadar’s resurgence.

Sample Evening Shore Excursion: Sunset Wine Tasting & Dinner at a Tuscan Villa
Regent will take you to Villa Dianella, an elegant Tuscan estate. This is where the famed Medici family hunted during the 16th century.
As an introduction to the area, travellers will first explore the nearby town of San Miniato. Perched atop a ridge high above the Arno Valley, the town is known for its white truffles, including a record-breaking one that weighed well over four pounds.
Following a full day of exploration, gourmands will enjoy a wine tasting and beautiful evening meal at Villa Dianella. All prepared with locally sourced Tuscan ingredients.
The seasonal menu may include a paccheri pasta with pecorino cheese and a wonderfully seasoned chicken dish with roasted vegetables.
The tasting in the wine cellar will be just as memorable as the selections will be organic – guests will sample a blend made with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and perhaps an Orpicchio white varietal.

Sample Evening Shore Excursion: Seoul Night & Temple Cuisine
In Seoul, South Korea explore landmarks that define the capital’s past and present at night, when the sprawling urban landscape is beautifully illuminated.
Few places in Seoul are more historic than Gwanghwamun Square, which has been a public gathering place for centuries. It features statues of two revered figures – King Sejong, who developed a phonetic system for writing the Korean language. And there is also a statue of Yi Sun-sin, a brilliant 16th-century admiral renowned for his victories over the Japanese navy. A delightful meal of dishes that originated in Buddhist temples will follow. Temple cuisine is typically devoid of pungent vegetables such as onions and garlic as they are thought to hinder spiritual practices.
For a glimpse at Seoul’s vision for the future, stops to photograph Dongdaemum Design Plaza, a cultural hub with a bold amorphous design, and pausing at Sebit Islets – the world’s first floating cultural space – are essential. Sebit Islets will look especially dramatic with its LED lights reflecting off the Hangang River.

Guests will spend a stress-free, wonderfully serene evening in Shanghai.
The experience will begin with a traditional Chinese foot massage in which pressure is applied to specific points on the soles of the feet that supposedly correspond to certain organs.

A tasting follows in the cellar, during which oenophiles will enjoy sampling flagship wines made from blends of those grapes.

Sample Evening Shore Excursion: Private Evening at Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsuddde
In the Swedish capital Stockholm, browse the impressive collection of art at Waldemarsudde, the former home of Prince Eugen. It has been converted into an acclaimed museum that will open after-hours exclusively for an evening event.
Born into royalty, Eugen became one of Sweden’s foremost landscape painters and an avid art collector with a keen eye. His early 20th-century Art Nouveau residence holds many of his finest works and objects of art that the prince collected over the years.
The estate and museum opened to the public shortly after his death in 1947 and has since become one of Stockholm’s most popular attractions.
On the tour through Waldemarsudde, expect to see the prince’s studio, his private living quarters and some of his most inspiring landscapes.
Although the collection features mainly Swedish artists, it also includes works by Picasso, Rodin and Edvard Munch. Even the setting of Waldemarsudde on the island oasis Djurgården is magnificent.
