1. British Isles
One of the best things to do in the Northern Atlantic is to cruise around the British Isles.

A famous tropic location for cruises, Hawaii, is world known for its surfs, sandy beaches and palm groves. Cruising around the islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island, covers things like the most active volcano in the world – Kilauea Volcano – along with the Kualoa Mountain Ridge and the legendary Waikiki Beach. Experience the Polynesian traditions, enjoy the cuisines and visit the Punchbowl Crater – a vacation to Hawaii never goes waste!
3. Baltic Sea
An adventurous spirit can never say no to an excursion around Baltic Sea. A small sea in the northeast of Europe, surrounded by countries like Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Germany and Estonia among others, a cruise will offer you the chance to explore cities like Stockholm and Helsinki. It in fact also covers one of the most beautiful cultural capitals in the world – St. Petersburg – which is simply a dream come true for most.
Japan is the one place which everyone wants to visit, cruise or no cruise! And if you are getting to cover the mystique of metropolitan cities like Tokyo along with the mountainous retreats of Shimizu and port cities like Hakodate and Aomori. The stunning landscapes with volcanoes, lakes, mountains and ancient temples, Japan offers an exotic mix of things to explore.
5. The Mediterranean
One of the most preferred cruise destinations of all time, the Mediterranean is a journey you can undertake any time of the year. And frankly, it is a little hard to come up with a place more perfect or beautiful than the beautiful islands of Greece to explore while on the sea. A whole civilisation was born and fell to its ruins on the coasts of this beautiful blue sea, which makes this cruise even more exciting. Explore cities like Pompeii, Monaco, Venice, Barcelona and find the gems of the ancient European civilisations.
