When it comes to luxury vacations, sometimes there’s nothing better than jumping on a cruise ship and seeing some of the world’s most amazing locations. On a cruise, you can jump from place to place in the comfort of a luxurious liner. If cruises are your thing, these are the top four you need to add to your bucket list.
Seabourn Cruises – Ultimate Antarctica and Patagonia
Most cruise ships travel around the warm waters of the Mediterranean or Caribbean, and that’s always going to be an amazing trip. The 21-day Seaborn cruise that takes travelers to Antartica is something a little bit different. The trip kicks off in Buenos Aires and swings by Uruguay and the Falklands before cutting through the ice and into the Antarctic. Not every cruise ship can make it through the ice in this freezing region, but this trip is worth every cent. Not only do you get to see the Antarctic but it stops off at multiple ports in Chile and Argentina to spice things up a little.
Viking Cruises – Barcelona, The Baltic, and Beyond
Europe is one of the most diverse places in the world, and there’s no better way to take it all in than on a cruise ship. Viking Cruises will take you on a 22-day adventure through some of the biggest European landmarks, including Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris, and St. Petersburg. This is basically one of the best ways to see the continent without being tied down to one place for too long.
Azamara Club Cruise – Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is one of nature’s wonders and seeing it is on many people’s bucket lists. Why not combine your love of cruises with seeing the amazing coral reefs and marine life that lives among Asia and Australia’s oceans? This 5,000-mile trip takes 18 days to complete, starting in Singapore and taking you to places such as Bali and Komodo in Indonesia on your way to Australia. The voyage doesn’t stop once you get to Australia though and you will be taken to great Aussie destinations like Darwin, Sydney, Thursday Island and, of course, the Great Barrier Reef.
Norwegian Cruise Line – Norwegian Fjords
Norway is one of the most impressive countries in the world to see by boat as you travel the coastline of this Scandinavian region. From the comfort of your cruise liner, you will see crystal clear waters, cascading waterfalls, and breathtaking mountains. Cruises don’t rush through the Norwegian coastline, which means you get to take in as much of the country as you would like. Around every bend is a new scenic view to take your breath away before you head to Norwegian destinations such as Oslo, Flam, and Bergen.
Seeing the world by boat allows you to travel in complete luxury while taking in some of the best views money can buy. These are our recommendations for the cruises you need to add to your bucket list.
