“2018 marks a special year for the Globus family of brands,” said Scott Nisbet, president and chief operating officer of the Globus family of brands. “It was 90 years ago when our founder – Antonio Mantegazza – purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Nine decades later, we’re still paddling, steering and cruising travelers through the wonders of six continents, including incredible opportunities to enjoy all of the beauty North America has to offer.”

Adding to an already robust portfolio of Special Event vacations, in 2018, Globus will give travelers the chance to enjoy Quebec’s Winter Carnival with a NEW 7-day vacation.  Globus is also encouraging more travelers to explore Western Canada with NEW 6-day Seattle, Victoria & Vancouver as well as 17-day Western Canada Explorer.  And, for those interested in exploring the “Wild West” south of the Canadian border, Cosmos is introducing a NEW 9-day Historic Train Journey and 15-day America’s National Parks vacation featuring the Western United States.
