Below are some of the most popular cruise destinations for 2020 that will get you excited to book your next holiday on a luxurious cruise ship this year.
Fret not if you haven’t yet planned your own epic adventures for the year 2020. No time is too early nor too late to prepare for that dream vacation, especially if you are one of those people who don’t have the luxury of time. Thus, you have to ensure everything is well-planned and that you will be able to get to as many places as possible, which is quite hard to cram into a limited time frame. The good news is, there are now lots of ways to get to so many places in one journey, and among them is through a cruise.
Enjoying a luxury cruise is becoming a popular pastime for many people, especially Australians. If you are thinking about where your next destination is going to be, we have plenty of ideas for you to select your next adventure.
The Islands of the Caribbean
The Caribbean is a popular destination for Australians, as well as people from North America and Europe, and there are many cruise lines offering holidays in this exotic destination. You do need to choose the time of year that you visit carefully, as, during the months of September and October, it is prone to be hit by big storms, causing rough seas and bad weather. Outside of these months, you can enjoy clear blue skies, stunning blue water, and lots of excursions as you enjoy your luxurious cruise; it’s not a surprise why this world-famous destination is in most people’s bucket list, it’s a beach lover’s paradise! You can select from many cruise deals for 2020 in the Caribbean, and with so much choice available, there is an option to suit all itineraries and budgets.
Mexico is another popular destination for cruises with travellers from all over the world. You can almost guarantee that the weather in this Latin American country is most of the time sunny, so you will be able to top up your tan while you relax on deck. Mexico is also an excellent option if you are looking for a budget cruise that is not lacking in amenities and activities. You can start your adventure by boarding your cruise ship in Los Angeles, then enjoying your journey along the coast to Mexico, where you will be able to get off and explore some of the many attractions that are on offer.
If you are looking to go less further afield, then there is also the option to enjoy a cruise around Australia, which, albeit being one of the most highly developed countries in the world, also boasts of natural wonders, beaches and wide-open spaces, among many others. There are a lot of ports that you can choose to start your adventures, such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. A significant benefit of choosing an Australian cruise is that there is less travel time to the starting point of your journey, consequently offering substantial savings. Whether you are looking for a short four-night break, or something longer such as 12 or 14 nights, there is a wealth of choice available when you are looking to take a cruise around Australia.
River Boat Cruising
Not only can you cruise the seven seas, but River Boat Cruising has become increasingly popular in recent years. Virtually every continent has wonderful cities perched along its major waterways. Not only did these rivers spur trade, but they also nurtured major settlements and the development of the world’s most fertile and scenic landscapes.
Today, you can find luxury River Boat Cruise ships touring along the world’s most acclaimed rivers. Rivers offering a great selection of river cruising include the Danube and Rhine in Europe, the Nile in Egypt, the Yangtze in China, the Mekong in Southeast Asia, the Amazon in South America, and the Mississippi in the United States, just to name a few. Rather than taking a road trip to explore a new destination, consider gliding through the heart of the country on a deluxe river cruise.
These are the most popular destinations for travellers to enjoy a luxurious cruise, but there are also many others available if you fancy something else to do with your vacation. When booking your trip, ensure that they are registered with the CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association), and you will almost certainly have an adventure that will draw you and your family closer together and one that you all are going to remember for a long time to come.
