Most travelers are aware of popular cruise destinations – from the Caribbean to Europe – but may be unaware of the more unique, niche itineraries that exist.
Cruisers can circumvent Earth’s southernmost continent on an Antarctica sailing or relax on the stunning beaches of Thailand and Vietnam on a Southeast Asia journey. Why not slice through azure waters in French Polynesia, island hop in Hawaii or explore America’s waterways on a steamboat river cruise? Head to the land Down Under on a cruise that dots along Australia’s eastern shores or uncover the charming coastal towns of New England and Canada.
In addition to unique ports, there are also more intimate, luxury cruise lines. These lines often provide an all-inclusive, personalized experience, providing amenities such as butler service, unlimited drinks, and shore excursions. Popular luxury cruise lines include Seabourn, Silversea, Regent, Windstar, Oceania, Azamara and Crystal.
