4 of the Most Exciting Cruises You Should Try

Can you believe it? Soon enough, we’ll be able to safely travel again — to finally experience new sights, new cuisines, and new people.

And while it may not be as soon as you might like, the delay leaves time to plan the vacation of your dreams.

This is the year to experience things you haven’t, and there are plenty of things to choose from. Especially when it comes to cruises!

When you’ve missed traveling so much, what’s the point of doing the same old cruise routine? You already know the drill….same locations, same pool-by-day, banquet-by-night routine.

What if this year, you make up for lost time by exploring and experiencing even more? More destinations means more lessons learned, and more memories made.

Start by checking out the fun and unique cruises setting sail this year. Choose your favorite, then get ready for a whole new flavor of fun!

The “Glitz, Glamour & Splendor” Cruise

After a year spent in sweats, it’s time to bring your inner fashionista out to play.

You can’t have the full glamorous experience without the luxury accommodations. The Regent ship “Seven Seas Splendor” encompasses every classic feature you can dream of (and more):

  • A variety of all-balcony suites, including the Regent Suite featuring 4000 square-feet of space that includes one-of-a-kind works of art and the first ever in-suite spa.
  • A “teaching kitchen” hosted by top-notch culinary artists.
  • A lineup of lavishly produced shows like “Divos and Divas,” a tribute to the best vocalists of the last 70 years.
  • 8 restaurant choices that cater to every palate, whether you’re in the mood for made-to-order omelets on a veranda or Chateaubriand Beef Tenderloin eaten with Versace silverware. For those more relaxed days, you can grab a casual lunch with panoramic poolside views.

The Glitz, Glamour & Splendor cruise brings you aboard this palace of a ship for a fifteen-day trip through Casablanca, Barcelona, Lisbon and more before ending in London.

Unlike many cruises these days that are starting to get more and more casual, this is an occasion in which you can bring your most eye-catching gowns and suits.

7-Day Seychelles Cruise

If you’re a tried-and-true traveler, you love to explore every nook and cranny of the world. Especially the places that are hidden treasures, lesser known to the everyday wanderer.

Pharaohs and Pyramids

All aboard the Viking Ra, a ship specifically built to navigate the Nile River!

This exclusive ship allows only a maximum of 52 guests (additional COVID restrictions may apply) so you can be sure to have your privacy.

The Viking Ra has the sleek elegance of a luxury ship with the durability of the state-of-the-art, modern ship.

But a smaller ship with less people doesn’t have to mean less space or luxury.

Each Veranda Suite is about 292 square-feet, with an elegant terrace attached to each living room and a French balcony extending from every bedroom.

You’ll also be equipped with every cruise essential, like 2 hot tubs, a pool, a relaxing spa, and a world-class restaurant.
