Unparalleled Access to Globe and Mail Journalists

It’s the company and conversation that makes Globe and Mail cruises unique.

Every Globe and Mail Cruise includes daily salon-style events and plenty of opportunities to ask questions, debate the decisions of our newsroom, and hear from like-minded readers with educated opinions of their own.

Begin each day at a Globe Insider Breakfast, hosted by David Walmsley or Phillip Crawley. Before the rest of Canada is even awake, you’ll learn what happened in the newsroom as the paper went to press, what to expect in future headlines, and the motivations driving the newsroom.

Each afternoon, enjoy Globe Forums with our award-winning journalists. Gain a better understanding of particular beats and a journalist’s job. Hear Eric Reguly’s take on the future of the EU and John Ibbitson’s predictions for the federal election. Experience some of the world’s most complicated regions through the eyes Stephanie Nolen and get a better understanding of the unprecendented tensions between China from Nathan VanderKlippe.

Then, continue the discussion over lunch or dinner or on excursions as our journalists join you in discovering all that Portugal has to offer.
