Don’t miss your chance to explore exotic destinations while experiencing innovation at sea!

Alaska – Towering Glaciers and Mesmerizing Wildlife

Breathtaking glaciers, ice-sculpted fjords, awe-inspiring wildlife and snow dusted mountains – with unspoiled sights like this, it’s no wonder Alaska is known as The Great Land! Spend your days experiencing the thrill of dog-sledding and river rafting, panning for gold, or immersing yourself in the coastal town charm of Sitka and Skagway. It’s time to awaken your inner explorer on this adventure of a lifetime.

Asia – A Mesmerizing Corner of the World  

History, culture, and natural wonders – experience all three on an Asia cruise that presents a new adventure at every port. Choose from any array of exotic itineraries, and find yourself waking up in Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai, and more! This will be an incredible cultural opportunity that gives you the chance to visit ancient Buddhist temples in China, sample masterfully crafted sushi in Japan, and kayak through the serene rivers in Vietnam.  Whether you’re looking to explore the Forbidden City in Beijing, or to sample the unique sweets and treats at the floating markets in Bangkok, this must-see corner of the world will truly be an experience of a lifetime.

Europe – A Wealth of History

Embark on a journey like no other and set sail on an unforgettable cruise vacation to Europe. Sit back, relax, and sip on fine wines in front of the breathtaking French Riviera in Marseille, or take a stroll through Barcelona’s Park Güell, and be enthralled by the intricate mosaics, the spiraling stone columns, and the panoramic view of the city. You’ll be utterly immersed in both history and wonder with each new city that you navigate through. There’s nothing quite comparable to seeing the massive stone walls of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, or indulging in one of the many scrumptious pasta dishes in Venice. Europe will captivate and enchant travelers of every kind.

If you’re seeking an intimate experience en route to exclusive destinations, a river cruise along the historic waterways of the Rhine or Danube is the perfect getaway. Guests may find themselves at a relaxing bath in Budapest one day, to admiring the paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts in Austria the next. In Passau, Germany, the sounds of the world’s largest cathedral will ring through the Old Town, as guests traipse over the cobblestones amongst locals. Each city that the cruise docks at will present an exceptional experience filled with notable sights and delectable cuisine. With a history dating back to 1050, visiting Nuremberg, Germany will transport guests back to a time where they can experience the historical art and sciences center. Due to the smaller ship size, river cruises can offer routes to less-visited European towns that will truly exemplify your cultural experience. Journey to the small town of Durnstein, Austria, where you can hike up the castle ruins and surround yourself with a breathtaking view of the entire town. Find yourself in the enthralling city of Prague, and wander through the labyrinth of their windy streets and you may find yourself at one of their many famous cultural attractions.  No matter the destination, gliding down the calm rivers of the Rhine or Danube onboard the comfort and charm of a luxurious river cruise, is quite an unparalleled experience. Immerse yourself in new cultures, feast on local cuisine, and more onboard one of the many river cruises that Expedia CruiseShipCenters has to offer.

The Caribbean – An Unforgettable Adventure in the Sun

With an impressive array of exotic, tropical destinations, you’ll be able to partake in a variety of unique activities at every stop on your next Caribbean getaway. You can snorkel the beautiful coral reefs of the Bahamas, trek through the tropical jungles of Costa Rica, dance the night away in Aruba, or surf the coastline of Nicaragua. Whether you’re looking to relax and soak up the sun on one of the glistening white sand beaches, or join an adventurous shore excursion, a cruise through South America or the Caribbean, will offer you the chance to do both! Plan your perfect getaway today because sailing along these sunny shores, will truly be an epic adventure to remember.
