Has anyone been on one of these?
It seems wonderful, flying from one spot to another.
Planes can reach more isolated areas.
Smithsonian must have expert lecture on board and great guides, no?
It seems, if you have the money and time, this is the way to travel.

If i ever get a spare $60,000-$70,000 accumulated for a 22 day summer vacation i'll certainly look into the possibility as it sound like a trip of a lifetime..

It sounds great for those that have unlimited funds for travel. Smithsonian is a class act. I believe that National Geographic has similar trips. As for me I have to chose carefully where to spend my travel money but everywhere I have ever been I wouldn't mind returning.

National Geographic seems more of an action holiday. I think there is a certain amount of physical effort to get places. I think Smithsonian might be more applicable for retirees.
Both seem a lot of fun.
We like learning things and new experiences, which is why general cruising, with the party atmosphere, seems not for us. But we have not tried it.
