Life’s beginning to seem a little humdrum, isn’t it? You wake, up check your phone for emails, hit the shower, and then grab a cup of coffee. Everything seems great right then… Until, of course, you’ve got to head out to car and drive to work. You rinse and repeat. Day in and day out, it’s the same old routine. It seems like it might never end.
You’ve got to get away.
And, that’s what cruises are for. Sure, you could plan an expensive vacation to some far-flung place, but even then you’re stuck in the routine. Visit this attraction, grab dinner, head back to the hotel. Rinse and repeat. Cruises offer something different.
When you’re on a cruise, you can experience the world unlike any other way you can experience. For one, you can take to the open ocean, which has always called to the soul of mankind. Even better, you can stop in at all the ports of call, getting the experience of a variety of locals, all within the confines of ONE vacation.
Are you not ready to cruise? Need a little more inspiration? Check these photos out, then.
1. Party Over Here!
What’s that we spy just beyond the idyllic beach? Why it’s the Carnival Sensation, cruising off the coast of Nassau.
Perhaps a trip through the old towns and cities of Europe is what the doctor ordered! Better call Viking River Cruises.

Maybe you’d like to experience the “yacht life”? If that’s the case, then Paul Gauguin is the cruise line for you!
4. Splish Splash
Maybe you’re more interested in fun on the boat? Then you’re going to love the tricked-out ships in the NCL line!
5. Not All Tropics
You don’t have to go to the tropics when you’re heading on a cruise. Why not take a trip to Alaska on the National Geographic Explorer?
6. More Exotic
Hey, if Alaska’s too tame, then we’ve got news for you. National Geographic’s cruise ships also head to Antarctica.
Some people believe that if it ain’t big then it should go home. Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas was built for these individuals.
8. See The Amazon
If you book with Aria, you can get up close and personal with the Amazon River, one of the most mysterious bodies of water in the world.

10. Old School
Or maybe you want to keep it close to home? Maybe a cruise down the Mississippi River is just the thing you’re looking for, then.
You can bet the interest in Cuba is going to be high in the years to come. Get ahead of the curve aboard the Louis Cristal.
12. The Spirit of Hawaii
Alternatively, interest for Hawaii never wanes. But why fly there when you can take a luxurious ride aboard a cruise ship?
13. High Tech
Cruise ships are always trying to outdo one another, but you haven’t seen “high tech” until you’ve taken a cruise around Tokyo.
If you’re interested in New England – especially during the fall months – then maybe a tall ship cruise is what you’re after.
15. See Africa
While there are plenty of options for cruises around the African coastline, the MSC line offers some of the best.
If you want to experience the Pacific sunrise as you’ve never experienced it before, then P&O’s Pacific Dawn is calling your name.
