Being on the ship as it snuggly fits into the locking system is truly a sight to see. This journey is usually a little longer, around 14-days, so there will be a few days at sea between ports, which give you time to relax and enjoy a margarita.

You get a few casual days at sea going between the Hawaiian Islands and the US, also ports are located close by each other giving you plenty of time to take in the natural waterfalls and gorgeous beaches before needing to board the ship again.

5. Alaska – With thousands of positive reviews from cruise guests, Alaska gets a top 10 cruise destination position by the sheer beauty of the landscape alone.

You will be sure to pass by glaciers, see whales and visit some of the most unique ports around.

4. New Zealand – This top 10 cruise destination was a no brainer. Whether you are going there for their Kiwis or to see the sights, be prepared to enjoy every moment of it. New Zealand has some of the cleanest beaches around. This helps with the fantasy aura it gives off, which can bee seen in films like Lord of The Rings.

3. Amazon – This is a very unique experience, which gives it such a high top 10 cruise destination number. Most cruise lines don’t go down in here, except for some luxury lines and some river cruises. This means that it will have a more intimate feel to the journey. This is for a true adventurous cruiser who wants that uninhabited feel of the surrounding area and would like to investigate each port.

2. Antarctica – Polar bears, penguins and the southern most cruise you can take make this a top 10 cruise destination. The area you will be seeing is some of the most uninhabited places in the world. While having a little crispness to the air, you are about to see some the most undisturbed eco system around.

1. Galapagos Islands – This destination is worth the number one spot given on this top 10 cruise destination list. Only smaller, more intimate ships can weave their way through these islands, this gives you a really active and adventurous journey. With a lot of ports to see, this cruise requires a lot of walking, but is well worth it to see the Komodo Dragon and other species that are mixed in with this exotic setting.
