One thing that makes this list different from Pan Am's "First Moon Flights" club of the sixties and seventies is that these are travel plans you can make today. If you can afford them:

- Seeing Earth from orbit
- Shoot for the moon
But my guess is that it's just a matter of time before Space Adventures makes the arrangements necessary for their Lunar Mission.
