Cruises We’d Love to Try – Part 2 – Itineraries

We’ve talked about our first cruise experience, and we’ve talked about cruise lines we’d love to go on. Now it’s time for us to talk about cruise itineraries that appeal to us – although if we’re being honest they all appeal to us, there just happens to be a few that stand out for us.

First up, the Norwegian Fjords. Because Norway is apparently rather expensive to holiday in, we feel like this would be the best way for us to see this beautiful part of the world. We did have a cruise on the Celebrity Silhouette booked for August 2021 to the Fjords, but we’re now planning on cancelling that one, as we have a close friend getting married during that time. But we’ll definitely be planning another cruise up around that area at some point.

Another cruise we’d love to go on is one around the French Polynesian islands. This area has been on our bucket list for the longest time, and we think a cruise would be the best way to get a taste of it without paying high prices for flights and accommodation.

We also love the possibility of doing a Caribbean cruise, especially ones that would allow us to visit Aruba and Cuba. We’ve talked about the idea of going on a Caribbean cruise at Christmas time some year. We imagine it would be a cool experience to spend Christmas day on board a ship in the middle of the Caribbean!

La Bodeguita del Medio es un típico bar restaurante de La Habana Eticheta a tu Companero de viaje, con quien vendrias a Este lugar hazle saber 🤩😃 Cuba, un lugar históricamente frecuentado por personajes ilustres del pasado, que a través de fotografías, firmas en las paredes, grafitis y diversos objetos, han dejado su huella en su paso por este restaurante. Salvador Allende, Pablo Neruda, el escritor Ernest Hemingway, son solo algunos de los que frecuentaron este lugar en el pasado. En la pared hay una famosa frase, en inglés, de Hemingway: "Mi mojito en La Bodeguita, Mi daiquiri en El Floridita". La Bodeguita del Medio asediada por turistas en 2019 Interior de la Bodeguita del Medio Fundada por el húngaro Sepy Dobronyi como tienda de alimentación, fue comprada en 1942 por el español Ángel Martínez, quien transformó la tienda en un restaurante, sirviendo platos típicos cubanos Después de la revolución, Martínez, pasó de propietario a administrador estatal, introdujo un nuevo cóctel, el Mojito, que luego se convirtió en un símbolo de la barra y de los típicos cócteles cubanos.

Alaska is another area we’ve always talked about going to. Like a trip to the Norwegian Fjords, we think a cruise here would provide us with breathtakingly beautiful scenery. We both have family on the west coast of America, so we’d love to incorporate a trip to Alaska if we go visit them at some point.

Two of our closest friends spent their honeymoon on a cruise around Japan, and after hearing about the experience and seeing their photos we knew had to add it to our bucket list of cruises. Aside from Norway, this is probably the cruise we’d be most keen to try out next.

Finally, a transatlantic or a transpacific cruise – either one appeals to us. We found that when we cruised last year we loved the sea days. They were the perfect opportunity to just relax and enjoy the ship, plus there was something exciting about going up to the top deck and seeing no land in sight. Also, if we did a transpacific one we’d get the chance to cross the International Date Line!

Who know where our next cruise adventure will be. But we think it’s safe to say that wherever we sail to next it’ll be an exciting trip.

Until then, stay safe and keep planning the next adventure!

Brianna and Iain
