A cruise is one of the best ways to travel the world. You get to unpack once, then sit back and enjoy a smorgasbord of amazing food, onboard entertainment and unlimited relaxation as you journey to some of the most beautiful destinations on the planet. From tropical getaways to ice-blue glaciers, here are some amazing places you could visit on your next cruise! 

Alaska’s Inside Passage

Alaska’s Inside Passage is one of the most awe-inspiring places you can view from the sea. Get a truly unique view of the stunning glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and rugged wilderness as you sail past in a cruise ship. 


Norway is a breath-taking country, and one of the best ways to experience it is from the water. From sailing into the Norwegian Fjords, to the Northern Lights, to getting up close to landmarks such as the Seven Sisters Waterfall – there is a lot to love about a Norway Cruise. 

Plus, Norway is one of the most expensive countries to visit, so a cruise allows you to experience the beauty, while still having your meals provided for you onboard. 

Santorini, Greece

You have probably seen the enchanting pictures of the island of Santorini with its whitewashed houses topped with sky-blue domes. Its settlements, built on a rugged landscape shaped by ancient volcanic activity, offer beautiful beaches and stunning views looking out to the Aegean Sea. Experience the best of Greece by hopping from island to island on a cruise.


An expedition cruise to Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Accommodation on the White Continent is limited to scientists, so the only way to get there is by sea. With so many unique species of marine and animal life to be seen – this will be a journey you will never forget.


Australia’s southernmost capital city never fails to disappoint! Whether you’re a nature lover, a history buff or anything else, you will find something to do here. This beautiful city plays host to gourmet food tours and cultural tours, but if you head outside the hustle and bustle, you will find astonishing natural beauty. Head up Mount Wellington or take a day trip to Mount Field for stunning waterfalls in lush rainforest. 

South Pacific

Clear blue water, sandy beaches, warm weather – there is a lot to love about the South Pacific, and one of the best ways to experience it is on a cruise! Get a taste of it all as you island hop between Vanuatu, Fiji, New Caledonia and more! That is a lot of tropical island bliss in one holiday!


Storied history, amazing cuisine and breath-taking natural scenery – see it all on a cruise of Southern Japan! From the technological marvels of Tokyo to the stunning sights of Mount Fuji, you will fall in love with Japan on a cruise. 


Not many cities can match the sophistication and picture-perfect beauty of Amsterdam. Explore the colourful canals by boat, walk the cobble streets or uncover the history of the iconic city.

New Zealand

Few destinations are as jaw-droppingly beautiful as the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’. Home to stunning glaciers, dramatic mountain ranges, aquamarine lakes and deep fjords, New Zealand feels like something right out of a fantasy movie trilogy. Plus, New Zealand has a rich Māori culture that is worth exploring and discovering.


Budapest offers a rich blend of beauty and history, making it a fantastic destination for a river cruise. Sail into the city along the Danube River and marvel at the jaw-dropping architecture of the Hungarian Parliament Building.
