5 Alternative Cruise Holidays around the World

Planning to go on a cruise? You will most probably be overwhelmed with the abundance of options for the next destination that should be on your bucket list. With this, keep on reading and learn from some of the places that we will be suggesting below.

 

Alaskan Cruise

The weather alone is more than enough to convince you to book a cruise in Alaska. From mountains that are covered in snow to diverse wildlife, this is different in more ways than one compared to other cruises that you have possibly taken in the past. Some of the most popular attractions that you should see include Glacier Bay National Park and Denali National Park. Expect to see grizzly bears, bald eagles, and foxes, depending on when and where you visit. You will be spoiled for natural beauty as it is home to 3 million lakes, 3,000 rivers, 100 volcanoes, and more than 34,000 miles of coastline.

 

Russian River Cruise

Russia may not be on the top of your mind when it comes to cruise destinations, but it can actually be very promising. Luxury sailing will provide you with a relaxing experience while discovering the best that the country has to offer. There are many places that you can explore, such as Svir and Volga Rivers, as well as Ladoga and Onega lakes. Make sure that your Russian cruise covers Moscow, which will complete your holiday.

 

Caribbean Cruise

Whether you have a few days or weeks to spare, a Caribbean cruise will always be an excellent idea. This is one of the most popular cruise holidays because this route is serviced by some of the most luxurious liners. Gifted with more than 5,000 islands (see the best ones here), the Caribbean is hard to beat when it comes to cruising destinations. More than pristine beaches, you will have plenty of other things to experience, which will surely be instrumental towards having an epic trip. Whether you are looking for a laid-back island life, a mystery-filled destination, or an unspoiled paradise, the options will be endless.

 

Junk Boat Cruise in Vietnam

Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers a different kind of experience. Dotted with towering limestone rock formations, you will not be boarding a huge cruise liner, but a smaller traditional junk boat. Do not be fooled by the antiquated appearance. As soon as you get inside, you will be able to experience a different kind of luxury. The good thing about these boats is that they are small, and hence, you will have a more intimate experience.

Canal Boating in the UK

Traditionally, canals in the UK are used to facilitate trade. Today, however, they are popular for cruises aboard a narrowboat, which is an excellent way to explore different destinations. With more than 2,000 miles of navigable water, you will surely be spoiled for choice. Each canal route has its own promise, but if there is one thing that you will experience in all routes, it would be scenic beauty. You will surely be in awe with the stunning landscapes that will unfold right in front of your eyes.
