For centuries, determined pilgrims have endured grueling

conditions to visit sites such as the lost city of Petra and Easter Island. For

a cost of $77,750, participants in Abercrombie & Kent’s Nine World Wonders by Private

Jet tour (www­.abercrombiekent.com) can reach those

destinations while enjoying flutes of Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle in the lounge

of a Boeing 757 fitted to accommodate 50 passengers. The 25-day trip, which will

take place from January 13 to February 6 and again from February 7 to March 2,

will feature visits to the two aforementioned sites as well as Machu Picchu, the

Sydney Opera House, Angkor Wat, Myanmar’s Shwedagon Pagoda, the Taj Mahal,

Masqat (Oman’s capital), and the pyramids of Giza. . . . For world travelers who

prefer the sea over the sky, there is the Silversea World Cruise

2008 (www­.silversea.com). The 610-foot, 382-passenger cruise

ship Silver

Shadow will dock at 51 ports in 27 countries from

January 16 through May 6. The vessel’s lodgings include 1,264-square-foot

owner’s suites, each of which has a private teak veranda. Fares begin at about

$65,000.
