While I love Thanksgiving with family and friends here at home in the USA, it’s a great time to escape daily life and head out to an exotic international destination. Last year, I spent Thanksgiving on board the Via Australis expedition ship, exploring the southernmost reaches of Patagonia and South America. This 4-night sailing was a great way to get up close and personal with glaciers and penguins, while learning all about the historical maritime significance of the Drake Passage and Cape Horn.

The activities and expeditions were exciting and well executed, and the ship was very comfortable. Food and drink offerings on board were solid, and the culinary highlight was the perfectly-prepared Thanksgiving turkey dinner. I found the other passengers on board to be international, affluent, and adventurous, which is always a great combination.

So how about a luxurious expedition next year for Turkey Week?
