5 Destinations for your next cruise

5 Destinations for your next cruise

If you’re thinking about where to go next and you’re looking for something different, perhaps off-the-beaten-track and away from the city centres, we’ve got 5 hot cruise destinations for you to consider.

Greenland and Norway

These destinations are sending travellers into a frenzy! Breath-taking fjords, isolated villages, incredible wildlife… it’s all here waiting to be discovered. Norway is hitting many a “favourite destination” list and Greenland will blow you away. See our article on combining cruising Greenland here.


Steeped in history, culturally rich and full of contrast, Japan is well worth considering. Visually stunning from her temples to her gardens, shrines and castles, you’ll want to ensure you have plenty of storage space for all those photos!

Marquesas Islands, Tahiti

If you haven’t done it already, the Aranui 5 working freighter to the remote Marquesas Islands is an experience like no other! Although it’s a working freighter, the Aranui 5 is comfortable and welcoming, with plenty of passenger space and facilities. You’ll travel to parts of Tahiti few people get to see.


There’s never been a better time to plan on a cruise to Antarctica. Modern ships mean you can travel in style and luxury with added comforts to enjoy after a day exploring Earth’s last frontier! Be sure to get your plans in place early, however, as there are strict restrictions on the number of visitors permitted each year.

New Zealand’s Subantarctic Islands

Prolific wildlife in pristine environments, New Zealand’s Subantarctic Islands are one of the world’s best kept secrets. Aside from visiting some of New Zealand’s most well-known and beautiful sites, such as Milford Sound, the Subantarctic voyages will take you where only a handful of people are able to visit each year. This is a once-in-a-lifetime destination that won’t disappoint!
