Putting the Silk in the Silk Road

Putting the Silk in the Silk Road

Deep in the Uzbekistan countryside, silk worms are still raised on mulberry leaves and a single cocoon can produce a thread up to 1200 metres long. This is the heart of the Silk Road, the vast network of trails where caravans traded myriad goods between East and West. And Jules Verne’s small group tours can show you everything from silk carpet weaving to dazzling ceramics.

On a Quest for the perfect Cruise?
Classy, understated furnishings, a relaxed and informal atmosphere, fabulous dining and the perfect size ship for getting into the most convenient berths in the heart of each destination – that’s Azamara Quest. Watch here for an overview of the ship and a typical sun-splashed Mediterranean itinerary. It’s almost as good as being on board!
Mardi Gras in Louisiana
It all started in 1699 and it’s been going strong every since – the fabulous parades associated with New Orleans on Mardi Gras, literally ‘Fat Tuesday’ or Shrove Tuesday as we know it. It all happens on 25 February in 2020 – but there’s a great climate all year round and fabulous food, music and historic quarters too. Frontier America can show you the Deep South at its best.
