When it comes to relaxation, no travel provider gets it right as often as cruise lines. Built to take much of the guesswork out of travel while allowing its passengers to kick back and unwind, signing up for one in 2017 could prove to be a great reward for a job well done in your career, or to mark a special occasion in your life.
So, if you are looking to go on an amazing world cruise or on one in a specific part of the globe, check out the suggestions that we have for you below.
1) Faroe Islands/Iceland/Greenland
If visiting chilly landscapes is something that intrigues you, then taking a cruise route that will take you through the Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Greenland will provide you with plenty of amazing destinations to visit.
Discovered and populated over the years by descendants of the Vikings, the inhabitants of these three islands will charm you with their hospitality.
Equally captivating is their desolate but beautiful landscapes, as they have plenty of waterfalls, glaciers, and volcanoes that will provide plenty of photo opportunities.
Don’t miss the chance to visit hot springs like the Blue Lagoon when in Iceland, as their steamy waters will allow you to relax after the high volume of attractions that you will visit during the course of this cruise.
2) Eastern Canada
With our Canadian cousins celebrating their 150th year of nationhood, there is no better time to discover some of its cities and attractions than now.
There are cruises departing from the British Isles that call on cities such as St. John’s (considered by many to be the oldest city in North America), Halifax (home to the greatest concentration of drinking establishments in Canada), Charlottetown (the city where Canada was born), and Montreal (the largest French-speaking city in the world outside France).
From charming multi-coloured houses in St. John’s, to the presence of an 18th century citadel in the middle of Halifax, there is plenty of history and culture to be witnessed in this part of the country, making it a great cruise for those concerned with these topics.
3) Caribbean/Brazilian Amazon/Azores
If you are looking for a cruise itinerary that includes warmer destinations, then signing up for one that takes you through the islands of the Caribbean, into the heart of the Brazilian Amazon, and a stop in the Azores on the way home should be considered.
The gorgeous vistas of Saint Lucia (The Pitons), the decadent beaches of Barbados, the intense flora and fauna of the Amazon, and the temperate paradise of the mid-Atlantic Azores archipelago will all be on the schedule during this 42-night odyssey.
If you are looking for adventure you’ll never forget, start setting aside money for this sailing.
4) Around the world epic adventure
Want to tick off a huge bucket list item? Consider going on an around the world cruise. While these journeys take 121 nights (quite a bit longer than going around the world in 80 days), and cost in excess of $13,000 per person at a minimum, pulling together the money and time to make this trip happen will give you and any travel partners memories that will last a lifetime.
Visiting places such as the Caribbean, Colombia, French Polynesia, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean will give you tonnes of different experiences, so if you can pull it off, what are you waiting for?
