For the past couple of years we could only dream of taking a cruise. The good news is, crusing is back and you can make your dreams a reality.

The Caribbean is one that most people think of when they think about cruises. There’s nothing better than waking up daily to a new beach and a new tropical destination you’ve only been able to dream about. Some of the most popular would be Eastern and Western Caribbean Cruises. We recently went on an 8-Night Southern Caribbean Cruise and loved being able to try new destinations. If you run a quick search of the various cruise lines you are going to become very overwhelmed on all the choices. We would love to compare and contrast the different options with you as there is not one cruise line that is a fit for everyone.
Alasaka is my favorite cruise to date. I have been on a cruise to Alaska twice and I am planning my return in 2024. Needless to say, this needs to be on your list. those who love nature, the beauty of glaciers, wildlife and serenity will love Alaska. Don’t listen to the rumors, Alaska is not just for mature adults. Kids have the natural love of exploration and Alaska is the place to do it. You can cruise to Alaska in May through September and sometimes even the first week of October. There are a ton of cruise lines which will take you to Alaska from large ocean cruises to small ship sailing.
Christmas in Europe is magical. Taking a river cruise through the Christmas Market is even more magical. You will see sparkling lights, hand-carved toys and ornaments, and so much more. Enjoy a cruise through either the Danube or Rhine.

Hawaii is one of those places everyone wants to visit!! If you wanted to visit Hawaii and see and do most of what is recommended, you would need at least 3 weeks.

Our favorite thing is you will spend 100 hours at port. 34 of those hours will be spent in Maui. Norwegian has you overnight in both Maui and Kauai. There’s no rushing back to the ship.

A Mediterranean cruise vacation is a perfect opportunity to discover multiple iconic landmarks in a short space of time.

With vibrant cities, lavish architecture, dramatic landscapes, volcanic islands and a rich cultural history, the Mediterranean boasts a uniquely mythic stature and promises to be an exciting adventure into lands of legends where you can investigate the mystery of history.
