Cruises are so inspiring. I always tell people that the beauty of a cruise vacation is unpacking once and getting to sample a variety of ports without having to board a plane, train or bus.
But don’t just take my word for it, I recently asked some colleges and friends what cruise inspirited them them most. They gave an assortment of answers.
Here are a few of their answers:

1. Alaska

Inside Glacier Bay.

Many people told me a cruise to Alaska was a must take trip and a chance to connect to with nature, now I must admit they were right. Seeing Alaska for the first time on Holland America’s Westerdam proved not just special because I was back out at sea, but because of the opportunity to experience America’s Final Frontier, Alaska.
Sailing through Glacier Bay and watching calving of a glacier from my room balcony coupled with learning from the on board National Park Rangers became beautiful, memorable and educational. Couple that with the shore excursion of taking a helicopter to walk across the surface Mendenhall Glacier outside of Juneau and you can’t help be become connected to the land, ice and its story.

2. Canada

Cruisers can admire beautiful scenery, particularly in the fall as the leaf colors change, and can enjoy outdoor excursions in several US & Canadian national parks. Ports of call offer numerous historical/cultural attractions, appealing to both couples and families.
Finally, you can eat your way up & down the Saint Lawrence Seaway – with lots of opportunity to enjoy local seafood especially.  Cities like Quebec City are havens for foodies!

3. Mediterranean

Is there any part of the world more suited to cruising than the Mediterranean? Anyone would be inspired by the cultures, cuisine, history and raw beauty of the Med.
Consider the hills, lavender and seafood of the French Riviera. The royal ambience and glittering casino of Monte Carlo. The seaside villages of the Amalfi Coast. The ruins of Rome and Ephesus. The ethereal Greek Islands.And that’s just a tiny taste of the Mediterranean.
OK, that’s it, I’m booking another cruise …
