Alaska and Mediterranean Cruises Add Some Romance to Your Holiday

Romantic Alaska cruises and exotic Mediterranean cruises are the perfect gifts for the love in your life this holiday season. 

                As you're looking for gift ideas to impress your love this holiday season, make sure you pull out all the stops. Vacations are a fantastic way to spend quality time with the one you love, and show how much the relationship means to you. 

Alaska Cruises

                Often overlooked, Alaska cruises are an exciting way to explore America's Last Frontier. With over 6,600 miles of coastline, towering mountains, and lush landscapes, Alaska has an awful lot to offer any vacationer. From the deck of your Alaska cruises, you can witness the dense forestry and rich wildlife, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and bask in the brilliant sun. 
                There exists a grave misconception that Alaska's landscape is exclusively arctic tundra, when in fact it is lush, mountainous, and full of life. The Tongass National Forest, the largest in the United States, is home to thousands of species; Mount McKinley is the highest point in the United States, and the Alaska Range covers from the rugged Yukon Territory to the Alaskan Peninsula. Temperatures in Alaska are mostly moderate - especially along the coast. For all these reasons and more, Alaska cruises are rapidly becoming some of the most popular choices for vacationers seeking awe-inspiring and romantic getaways. 

Mediterranean Cruises

                Mediterranean cruises offer the unique opportunity to stop in multiple countries along one luxurious journey. While being pampered, sunbathing, and enjoying a relaxing vacation, your cruise ship will guide you to the harbor cities of some of the most exciting and inspiring countries in the world.

                The Mediterranean is a region rich with culture: a fusion of culinary, historical, and artistic traditions provides a unique and impressive setting for a vacation. Mediterranean cruises enable you to spend time relaxing with your love while taking in all the beauty that this amazing area has to offer. Be sure to sample cuisines that combine flavors from North Africa, Europe, Greece, and the Middle East. Explore the landscapes that inspired artists from some of the most influential artistic movements. Investigate the regions that birthed science, philosophy and mathematics geniuses. 

                No matter what you're looking for in a vacation, both Alaska cruises and Mediterranean cruises will provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to an amazing series of spots. For a deeply romantic vacation that's out of the ordinary, Alaska cruises are your ticket; if exotic adventure is more your style, seek Mediterranean cruises to plan the trip of a lifetime for the lovely significant other in your life.

Soak In Some Culture with European Cruises

Many people fly to Europe to soak up the history and various cultures the continent has to offer. However, the best way to experience all things Europe is hop aboard European cruises. Unlike traditional vacations that require the bookings of hotels and restaurants, cruises have everything you could possibly need in one convenient place.

There is so much that Europe has to offer travelers, but there's never enough time to see it all. Thanks to European cruises, though, you can reach destinations such a Rome, Cairo, Vienna and Monte Carlo. All of these ports offer easy access to some of the most amazing places in the world.

Vienna, for example, is a Slavic melting pot where cultures have combined to create some of the most beautiful music, food and breathtaking views. Or you can choose a cruise that visits Rome, where some of the most world-renowned historical sites like the Vatican, the Parthenon and the Coliseum can be taken in. Rome's heritage is saturated in religion, innovation and great ancient power – it truly must be seen to be fully appreciated.
Venture further inland and you can see some of the striking mountain ranges, lakes or inland towns that make Europe such a unique place. The best thing about a cruise is everything is planned out for you. Instead of worrying about staying in hotels or hostiles, you'll be able to head right back to the cruise liner after your day of venturing into European culture is over.

So if you want to avoid the hassle of booking  multiple hotels on your trips or worrying about when and where you can go in Europe, think about booking European cruises. There is no better way to enjoy a stress free and culturally enriching vacation.

Explore the Wilderness with Alaska Cruises

The most underrated vacations are Alaska cruises: when people are planning their family getaways, Alaska rarely comes to mind as the optimal travel destination. Those who haven’t been to this beautiful state have the common misconception that it is a frigid, desolate wasteland…but in fact, Alaska has some of the most beautiful scenery and lush landscapes in the world!

Size on Your Side
The fact that Alaska is not part of the continental United States means it’s difficult to get a feel for how massive the state is just by glancing at a map. Alaska is in fact more than twice the size of Texas, and 425 times the size of Rhode Island. If one were to superimpose Alaska over the lower 48 states of the continental United States, it would extend to reach BOTH the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.
All this size makes Alaska the least-explored state of The United States’ fifty, and that’s mostly inland. The sheer mass of the state is also evidenced by the fact that it sports over 6,600 miles of coast – you could take multiple Alaska cruises and still never see the entire coast. 

Not Just Tons of Tundra

Alaska cruises can give you the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. Most people are surprised to hear it, but Alaska boasts some of the richest plant and animal life of any other state in the United States.
From your Alaska cruises, you may see Kodiak bears or the ptarmigan, the Alaska state bird. In no other state can you see the ptarmigan. In the waters beneath your cruise ship swim many species of sea life; almost all of the herring, halibut, crab and salmon consumed in the United States comes from Alaska. 

If your Alaska cruise can take you to the Fairbanks area during the winter months, you may witness something few people can ever claim to have witnessed: the impressive atmospheric phenomenon Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. In this amazing event, the black sky canvas appears to be painted with glistening brush-strokes of vibrant color, dotted with bright twinkling stars. 

Alaska cruises can give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and a truly memorable family vacation. The mild weather, breath-taking landscape, and rich wildlife all combine to yield a truly amazing spectacle of nature…and an extraordinary getaway. For your next vacation, consider all of the wonder you can behold on Alaska cruises.
