    My dream experience of a holiday on the Caribbean Cruise came true with #WOWClub!
    It was one of the best holidays of my life, right from the day we started for this trip till the last day when we departed. Was extremely happy and content with the way the whole trip was organised, coordinated with the cruise and executed by the charming WOW buddy Vithika.
    Being on Harmony of Seas was always on my wish list but never thought would ever be able to tick it off until it finally happened.

    I for one had a delightful trip to Greece. This was my first trip to Europe and also my first with WOW. I enjoyed the itenary where we did different things, away from the mundane... Like visiting the temple of Posiedon and the visit to the small village in Crete, the dinners at traditional restaurants etc. Vithika was a wonderful WOW Buddy. Soft spoken but with nerves of steel. Thanking her and WOW for a memorable trip. Zarine.

  • It's more than words that can express our sheer joy comfort and delight, experienced while travelling Europe with WOW. - Ishani Sinha
  • Vltava river cruise.... Swans, ducks, oh..and Prague Castle and Hradčany views.
  • Edinburgh is not only one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, it is a city with a fantastic position. The view falls on all sides – green hills, the hint of the blue sea, the silhouettes of the buildings and the red cliffs. It is a city that calls you to explore it by foot – narrow streets, passageways, stairs and hidden church yards on every step will pull you away from the main streets.
