Emerald Cruises has launched a new 16-day Safari and The Seychelles itinerary, now available for booking with departures from December 2024 to February 2025. This itinerary offers a unique experience aboard the luxurious 100-guest Emerald Azzurra yacht, seamlessly combining the thrill of a Kenyan safari with the tranquil elegance of a Seychelles cruise.

Kenyan safari highlights include:

  • Stop at the Thomson Falls scenic waterfalls, providing breathtaking views.
  • Three-night stay at the Maasai Mara Game Reserve to see the Big Five as well as the black-maned lion, savanna elephant, Cape buffalo, wildebeest and more
  • Profound cultural immersion with the Maasai Village to engage with the nomadic community, gaining insights into their unique way of life and a rich appreciation for their enduring customs
  • Optional hot air balloon ride to get a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking landscape

After the safari adventure, travelers can unwind and cruise aboard the Emerald Azzurra to explore the stunning sights of the Seychelles and the Indian Ocean. The voyage takes guests to various hidden gems, starting from Sainte Anne Island, surrounded by a marine national park with over 150 fish species. Another stop is Cousin Island, where rare magpie robins thrive. The trip is designed to offer tailor-made experiences for the guests. In addition, the cruise stops at Curieuse, a rugged island covered in untouched wilderness, and Praslin, an island full of marine life and coral.

On Emerald Azzurra, the guests are welcomed into an ambiance of sophistication and unmatchable luxury. The yacht boasts roomy and contemporary staterooms, an open-air infinity pool, and a wellness deck equipped with a spa, infrared sauna, and gym. La Cucina offers an array of culinary delights with fresh and seasonal cuisine, which can be enjoyed with terrace and indoor seating options.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
