Life is short and the world is enormous. For passionate travellers who want to experience everything there is to see on this planet, there is almost too much to see and do in a single lifetime. From frozen glaciers and towering peaks to lush jungles and sun-kissed beaches, the list of must-visit destinations is a long one.
A VIP cruise is one of the best ways to see as much of the world as possible in a short time. You’ll be able to tick off multiple destinations and a variety of iconic sights while traveling in the lap of luxury.
But even with a cruise, there are still so many options to choose from. There is so much to enjoy in the world of cruising that the choice can be overwhelming. But there are certain cruise ports that you just should not miss – the bucket list destinations that make packing a bag and setting sail an absolute no-brainer.
So if you want to see the best the world has to offer in comfort and style, here are five of the most unmissable bucket list destinations to cruise to.
While a TransAtlantic cruise might not sound as exciting as some of the other options on this list, this classic, historic route is a real treat and one of the most traditional cruise experiences you can find. You’ll be treated to absolute luxury aboard a ship that isn’t too big to explore in full, and whichever direction you are headed in, you’ll arrive in one of the world’s greatest capital cities, London or New York.
The vast wildernesses and jaw-droppingly beautiful landscapes of Alaska are one of the world’s most extraordinary sights and make for a truly incredible cruise experience. You’ll see the grandeur of nature in frozen tundras, jagged mountain peaks, huge glaciers, and deep, dark forests, as well as some of the most exciting wildlife around, and a selection of charming cities and towns. Best of all, time your cruise right and you’ll get the opportunity to see one of nature’s most beautiful phenomena, the magical light show known as the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
The Galapagos Islands are a unique cruise destination, and absolutely unmissable for wildlife lovers and fans of scientific history. It was here that Charles Darwin first began to develop his Theory of Evolution, thanks to the extraordinary biodiversity and one-of-a-kind creatures that exist on these rocky islets. Snorkeling and scuba diving in the Galapagos is one of the best underwater experiences you can find anywhere in the world, and you’ll be captivated by everything from blue-footed boobies to marine iguanas in this amazing corner of the world.
Another part of this glorious planet that is best discovered by cruise, for a frozen wasteland the Antarctic is a surprisingly, and amazingly rich cruise destination to visit. Not only will you be able to tick the last continent off your list (one of the only ways to do so), but this bizarre, alien landscape is one of the most stunning sights you will ever see and a genuinely once-in-a-lifetime experience. You’ll see crowds of penguins, whales, orcas, and dolphins galore, and the most adventurous and hardy travellers can even take a plunge into the Antarctic Ocean!
From the coldest climate in the world to one of the most delightful, a South Pacific cruise to French Polynesia or one of the many other exotic islands scattered across the map is a dip into paradise. From warm shallow lagoons, golden beaches, and swaying palms, to amazing food, rich, vibrant culture, and exciting activities, there’s no place on Earth quite like the South Pacific!
