Is a luxury cruise the new avocado? You know – the thing that has been right there under our noses the whole time, a thing that we knew about but never cared to personally experience, but that has suddenly become a Thing? According to the Cruise Lines International Association (who should know of what they speak), more than 27 million people will take a cruise in 2018. Why are so many people cruising? And if you’re not one of them, is it time for you to jump on board? Perhaps. Here at Dandelion Chandelier, we just took our first cruise – on the Regent Seven Seas Explorer – and we loved it. Here are 10 reasons why you might decide to sail away sometime soon.
The Luxury Photo Journey is an occasional series here at Dandelion Chandelier. Sometimes we find ourselves in a place so stunningly beautiful that words fail us. In those instances, instead of sharing our story, we’ll just let the images do the talking.

Is a marshmallow tsunami lethal? Is it actually possible to be surrounded by too much candy? Is there really such a thing as an ice cream museum? And where’s the best place to experience the new interactive candy galleries that are springing up all over the US like a Willy Wonka fever dream? Here at Dandelion Chandelier, we set out to answer these pressing questions after reading about and seeing thousands of pictures from the new wave of immersive sugar-driven installations – pop-ups that provide the opportunity for lots of cute photos, playing around with brightly-colored toys, and indulging in the luxury of all the sugar that anyone could ever want. In bitter times, sometimes even the toughest among us turn to sweets. Should you start feeling desperate for a mood-uplifting sugar high, here’s a run-down on the most popular ones, and a calendar of when and where you can visit one this year. Just be sure to brush your teeth afterward.
In the depths of winter, sometimes the spirit needs a reminder of the glories of spring. Surely that’s why so many of the world’s best orchid shows happen in February and early March.

Even if you only travel to these in your mind, we hope it’ll leave you feeling restored.
