A Guide to Cruising off the Beaten Track
When most people picture cruise holidays, they are likely to imagine two weeks sailing in the Caribbean or a tour of the Mediterranean Sea. While these voyages can be wonderful experiences, there are other more unusual options to be found off the beaten track. These alternatives can be worth considering for your next holiday.
One trip that offers an amazing experience, with spectacular natural scenery, is a voyage around the Arctic Circle. You will have the opportunity to spot polar bears as you sail amongst icebergs, beneath the breathtaking Northern Lights. Ports of call often include fascinating destinations in Norway, Greenland or Alaska.
If the cold does not appeal, another option is to sail around South America. Possible tours include seeing the unique culture of Argentina, partying in Rio de Janeiro and sailing around Cape Horn. It is even possible to begin your voyage in Europe and stop in at Mediterranean cruise destinations before crossing the ocean to Brazil.
Cruise holidays to Vietnam can also be very rewarding, offering magnificent scenery in the Halong Bay area near Hanoi. Adventurous travellers can immerse themselves in a completely different culture and explore the sights and sounds that this part of the world has to offer; the experience is sure to be extraordinary.
