Top 10 Cruise Destinations – A Very Intricate Task

Posted on February 25, 2010 | Top 1025 Comments


If you are looking for a serene excursion along some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, this list can probably help you. So, put on your sunscreen and sip a margarita while I take you through a top 10 cruise destinations.

10. Panama Canal

This canal is probably world’s most remarkable engineering project ever built. However, it’s not the only reason for suggesting this cruise trip. Two colossal oceans are joined and continents are separated by Panama Canal. The panoramas you will find here are extremely stupefying. However, the humidity and heat here is quite painful, but didn’t I ask you to get your sunscreen along?

9. Aruba

If they have Las Vegas, Caribbean has Aruba. With hundreds of luxurious resorts and lavish casinos, Aruba is a place to splurge. However, Aruba is endowed with many gorgeous beaches. Hence, if you are planning a trip to Vegas, you gonna miss something. Due to its wild environment, it attracts party-animals from all around the world.

8. Hong Kong

Don’t bother about the locals that are fleeing Hong Kong due to potential instability and politics. Thousands of tourists visit this place to enjoy the cruise-party offered by tour-providers here. So what if Hong Kong is no longer a financial hub of Asia, it still offers an opportunity to explore a bizarre way of enjoying the sea.

7. Norway

Although the gorgeous females of Scandinavian countries attract thousands of tourists each year, the geographical traits cannot be ignored. Sturdy mountains, crimson crags, coarse fjords, and azure water is how I define Norway.

6. Cayman Islands

For those who love to explore historic shipwrecks, marine reefs, and the expanse of downy white sand, no place on earth can beat Cayman Islands. Financiers call it tax heaven, travelers know it as ‘the ultimate heaven’. This place offers everything from chic hotels and fashionable shops to natural vistas and Caribbean charm. Another advantage of this place is you would not need a translator.

5. New Zealand / Australia

Few years ago there were no traces of cruise holidays in New Zealand. However, recently, they have emerged to be a leading vacation provider. And with such gorgeous vistas all around the country, they really didn’t need much to boost the business of cruise packages. On the other hand, Australia encompasses some of the most gorgeous beaches on earth. What more do you think a cruise excursion can offer? Do you like to party with Ozzies or Kiwis? Choose your pick.

4. Alaska

If you are a heat-loving traveler, visit any of the above mentioned beaches. Alaska is just not the place for you. However, if you love exploring ice-tipped mountains, stunning backdrops, and audacious adventures, you qualify to be a citizen here. And if you have left your wife back home, you can ascend Mt. McKinley, continent’s tallest peak, and have a look at her. And get down quickly after you catch a glimpse of her, the breeze here is very cold.

3. French Riviera

It’s quite difficult to narrow down the entertainment and adventures offered by the Mediterranean. However, let me try. If you ask me to choose the most striking place in Mediterranean, I will point toward French Riviera. The scenic views here are unforgettable. Really. I still remember everything.

2. Virgin Islands

If you are planning your first cruise trip, no place except Virgin Islands can be perfect for you; particularly, US Islands. These diminutive isles are less commercialized and more natural. Many private inlets and beaches will make your tour special.

1. Barbados

More than what you can imagine, Barbados has immaculate beaches, turquoise water, sweltering sunrays, courteous people, tropical vegetation, and unspoiled charm. There is a plethora of beaches. However, few coastlines like Batts Rock, Gibbs Beach, Paynes Bay, and Mullins Bay are exceptionally beautiful. Spending time at any one of these destinations is enough to enjoy a trip.

Mullins Bay

This doesn’t mean there aren’t any other cruise destinations. There are innumerous such places on your lovely planet. However, I found these ten to be the best among them.
