The 12-passenger Wanderbird may be the coziest ship at sea, and is fitted with a salon, library, galley, and lantern-lit coach house — a perfect location for curling up with a good book.

The 2-for-1 promotion is valid on two 17-day sailings to Greenland, Labrador, and Newfoundland embarking July 19 and August 9. Prices start at $5,000/person, but the second passenger sails free. Or, save 25 percent on the Maine Kayaking Expedition (embarking September 24) starting from $1,200/person (originally $1,600).

The value
Expedition voyages on other cruise lines can range from $2,000-$12,000/person (or more) depending on the destination. Lengthy cruises to Greenland average around $8,000/person ($16,000 total).

The catch
Airfare to the embarkation ports is not included.

The details
To receive these exclusive offers, reservations must be made by June 15. Visit www.wanderbirdcruises.com, or call 1-866-732-247 and mention Sherman’s Travel.
