Virtuoso(R) Survey Helps Travelers Write Their Travel Wish List

Take the VIRTUOSO LIFE® Travel Dreams Survey & Enter to Win a Dream Cruise:

NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Virtuoso®, the luxury travel agency network renowned for creating exceptional vacation experiences, has launched its seventh annual VIRTUOSO LIFE® Travel Dreams Survey and Sweepstakes. The survey, now available at, helps travelers explore destinations and experiences to create their personal travel wish lists. Whether it's setting sail for a world cruise, rocketing into suborbital space, enjoying a private island with family and friends, or calling on all seven continents, the Travel Dreams Survey fuels globetrotting ideas.

The survey first asks you to select a travel personality, then your answers set the stage for the eight core destination and experience questions that come next. Once complete, you receive your own personal travel wish list – a summary of all your responses. The wish list is the perfect place to start collaborating with your Virtuoso travel advisor. For more inspiration, the wish list also includes Virtuoso recommendations for destinations and experiences based on your chosen travel personality. The survey allows you to save, print and email your wish list PDF as well as share through Facebook and Twitter.

Those needing added motivation need look no further than the sweepstakes' Grand Prize giveaway: a 10-day cruise for two in a stateroom verandah cabin aboard Crystal Serenity sailing from Copenhagen, Denmark to Stockholm, Sweden on July 30, 2013. Five first prize winners will each receive $1,000.

The comprehensive survey responses will be revealed in the VIRTUOSO LIFE Travel Dreams issue this July. To better understand what you'll get out of the survey, watch this inspirational video.

Virtuoso describes luxury as the ability to customize and deliver flawless experiences, and the network's professional travel advisors say that starts with a conversation with the client. The Travel Dreams Survey helps travelers not only determine where they want to go, but why and with whom, by inquiring about specific destinations and experiences and their appeal. Virtuoso believes that determining travelers' motivations and expectations are the keys to discovering their true travel wishes.
