Travel Dynamics International is continuing its dedication to North American travel, announcing thirteen new programs for the 2013 season. The carefully crafted itineraries span virtually all of North America’s eastern seaboard, with ports of call ranging from Guatemala’s quaint town of Santo Tomas de Castilla to the remote Northern peninsula of Gaspé, where Jacques Cartier first claimed Canada for the French crown.
“We are reviving the tradition of North American cruising, exploring the history and culture that made this continent great,” says Vasos Papagapitos, Co-President of Travel Dynamics International. “On these cruises passengers have a rare opportunity to explore treasures found near to home, support our local economies through tourism, and experience first-hand the warmth and generosity of their fellow countrymen.”
Itineraries are intended to reflect the richness and diversity of the continent’s history and culture. Exploring ideas, in addition to places, select programs include:
- Echoes of the Past: Remembering the Civil War, a tribute to the 150th anniversary of the

Travel Dynamics International’s expansion and diversification of its North American itineraries is the result of the success 2012 programs enjoyed. Papagapitos notes, “Travelers are looking to ‘stay local’ and explore their homeland. The wealth of enriching historic and cultural experiences to be found along North America’s shores is astounding.”
