Curry secures unforgettable off-board experiences, such as dog-sledding in Kenai Fjords National Park or visiting the world's tallest totem pole in Kake, Alaska. Many clients choose smaller ships that sail in polar waters, like those operated by Ponant and Quark Expeditions. Lately, she says, "I've been selling a lot of Antarctica!" Still, Curry is able to secure staterooms worldwide, and she's well connected in the Mediterranean, where she knows which yacht-inspired vessels are worth the splurge and which local operators have the best crews. With many new small ships launching in coming years, Curry sees a growing range of options for travelers eager to return to sea. "The trend of always looking for a small ship may be here to stay," Curry says. "Enough travelers have now seen all the benefits of small ships that the word of mouth is likely to grow demand for years."
