Have you thought of the location for your next cruise?
Could it be the Caribbean which many cruise ships cruise around? Where will you visit? How about Belize, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grand Antigua, Cayman, South Carolina, Martinique, Barbados, St. Lucia, Louisiana, Texas, Florida, the Bahamas, or Mexico. These are all destinations from cruises setting out from places such as Fort Lauderdale.
You might try a cruise in the Mediterranean calling at such destinations such as Greece, Turkey, Italy, France, Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal, and other Mediterranean countries. When checking out Gibraltar you should check out the “Rock” but watch out for the Apes. These are called the Barbary Apes and they yearn for you to feed them. I have seen individuals being attacked by the apes in their search for food. It can be extremely scary if it is you being attacked but very funny if you are watching it. If it takes place to you just release the food and the Apes will leave you alone. It’s the food they are after.
There are other places to cruise in Europe such as Norway, cruising up the coast, and fiords checking out isolated neighborhoods in the deep-sea valleys on the west coast of Norway. The landscapes is dramatic and by cruising above the arctic circle you can experience the land of the midnight sun. This sun never sets in the summer season but in winter, it never rises. Because of this, you need to make certain you only cruise this area in the summer. Just as much fun as Norway is Alaska where you can get just as dramatic landscapes and it is just as much exciting.
Some cruise ships in the US spend the winter season cruising the Caribbean and the summertime cruising the West coast of Alaska. These ships need to rearrange themselves during the fall and spring and do this through the Panama Canal. These cruises are extremely strongly recommended due to the distinct experience of the Panama Canal. The US finished the canal in the early part of the last century although the canal was started by the French. The canal starts at the Gatun locks at the Atlantic side of Panama and travels to the Pacific side which lowers ships over 50 feet in the series of Miraflores Locks. The Panama Canal is among the wonders of the engineering world.
Cruises do not just happen on the sea though and you might try cruising the rivers of the world. How about the terrific Mississippi River from New Orleans to Little Rock, St Louis, or Pittsburg. Companies also run theme cruises covering themes such as the Civil War, Steamboat racing, and unique Fall cruises.
You might also try Europe and cruise on the river Rhine, Elbe, Danube, Seine, or Rhone rivers to name just a few, or you might try your hand at captaining your own boat on the canal systems in France or the UK. Don’t forget additional to the east of Europe there are numerous other countries providing river cruises. There are also rivers such as the Nile and Amazon as well. Whatever you choose to do, just enjoy yourself.
