Top 10 New Year Cruise Destinations for New Year 2017 :
1. Caribbean Cruise
In Caribbean the perfect time to go for a Cruise trip is during January and February because during the summer, the Caribbean is much more crowded, a drawback for some. The chain of islands is around 2,000 miles long, dividing the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Travelers can go to one side of the islands and relax on the green of the Gulf, or visit the opposite side to enjoy the turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean. The different islands are made up of reefs, cays and islets, providing visitors with a ton of things to do and see. On possibly one of the most laid-back cruises travelers can tailor their trip to visit the destinations that are right for them.
2. Europe/Mediterranean Cruise
Mediterranean Cruise is another good option to enjoy a Cruise tirp. Most of the towns that have a Mediterranean coast are historic cities with a remarkable history. Sailing will be anywhere from seven to 21 days long, and visitors will stop in a port almost every day, giving them plenty of time to experience each destination. However, Cruise Source said that it would be smart for travelers not to wait six months before the cruise to book a room, as more than half the ships will likely be full.
3. Alaska Cruise
Anyone planning to travel to Alaska should go by cruise, as the scenery along the coastline is known to be exquisite. Travelers are exposed to nature just by being on board – beautiful trees, giant whales, tiger sharks, glaciers and eagles. The summer months are an ideal time to travel, as the northern location keeps the weather cool.
