We have done many cruises in the past few years and we have done many different itineraries, these are my top 5 pick:
1- South East Asia:
We did 19 days from Hong Kong to Singapore, then continued to Malaysia back to Singapore and I have to say this one was my favourite itinerary so far. The port of calls included, other than Hong Kong and Singapore, Halong Bay, Da Nang and Saigon in Vietnam. Bangkok, Ko Sumui and Phuket in Thailand, Kuala Lumpur and Georgetown in Malaysia. The cruise was fantastic and it gives us the opportunity to explore many destination in one trip without having to pack and unpack several time!
2- Panama Canal
We were lucky, living in Vancouver at that time, to be able to board the ship from Vancouver for 21 days all the way to Fort Lauderdale. This was another incredible itinerary. The Canal was the highlight of the cruise but there were many other port of call that we deeply enjoyed. The itinerary included some great port of calls on the California Coast like San Francisco, Santa Barbara and San Diego. I was particularly impressed by the small beach town of Huatulco Mexico and the fantastic Cartagena Columbia. I would decently do that itinerary again.
3- Mexican Riviera
This itinerary is particularly great for people living on the west coast. It is the perfect winter getaway. The port of calls of Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan are fun and easy to explore. The passenger on board are always great and looking to enjoy and have fun.
4- Mediterranean Cruise
A Med cruise is a great way to explore many destinations in Europe in a single trip without having to catch many different transportations. Great stops include Barcelona, Mallorca, Palermo, Naples, Rome (Civitacecchia), Livorno (for Florence), Athens and the Greek Islands.
The Alaska itineraries are an amazing way to explore the wilderness and beauty of the north. We loved the Southbound itinerary from Wittier to Vancouver with the opportunity to see the majestic Hubbard Glaer, and the round trip from Vancouver. The port of calls of Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway are rich in Gold rush and pioneer history. I particularly loved going there right at the beginning of the season when there is still a lot of snow on top of the peaks and the ports are not too crowded with tourists. Glacier Bay National Park is so magnificent that will require its own blog post!
These are my favourite pick I’d love to hear from you.
