How LUXURIOUS everything was. I was expecting to be “wow”ed by all the sites and splendor of the experiences…but I had NO idea the quality of the food, the cruise, the open bar!, the hotels – all those things were exceptional!

Why Sail with Select?
What Your Peers are Saying
We were treated like royalty throughout the pilgrimage, but the experience of staying overnight on, and eating meals on the Renoir was truly over the top. I loved that our ‘hotel’ traveled with us and was there for us at the end of the day – our home away from home.
Diana and I want to thank you, and the whole Select team, for the superb pilgrimage tour we experienced in Portugal and Spain. The accommodations, itinerary, the tour guides, and the cruise were all perfect and shows how well you do your job
Why Take a Pilgrimage Cruise
Select International Tours has been organizing group pilgrimage trips for discerning Clergy and Catholic Leaders for 35 years! While we are passionate about pilgrimage, we know that it is just as important to be compassionate to the pilgrim, which is why we pioneered the Pilgrimage Cruise for YOU!
Pilgrimage trips visit many places over the course of several days. Catholic sites in Europe are spread over considerable distances. Before the Pilgrimage Cruise, you would have had to endure early mornings, frequent hotel changes, and long bus rides in order to see everything. But now, you travel while you sleep and wake up in a new place every morning! Your hotel travels with you.
Select International Tours and Cruises charters the WHOLE ship!
By doing so, you can rest assured that everyone onboard shares your faith and is also on pilgrimage. Additionally, with an entire ship of pilgrims, you have access to many amenities that are unavailable on other tours:
- Private Daily Mass
- Onboard Adoration Chapel
- Onboard spaces for the Sacrament of Reconciliation
- World-Class dining without leaving the ship
- Relaxing staterooms and gathering spaces
- Onboard lounge and bar
- Rooftop vista deck to take in the scenery
- and MORE!
Each day, you will step off the ship to explore important Catholic and historic sites with guided shore excursions and organized tours. You will celebrate mass daily in gorgeous churches, cathedrals, and basilicas. And every evening, you will return to your floating 4-star hotel and restaurant to enjoy word-class dining, the company of fellow faithful, and a relaxing stay in a well-appointed stateroom.
