New Cruise Routes

There are three new cruise routes in Asian nations alone this year.

Winter holidays are over. The Christmas holidays are shorter.

So, what next?

It’s time to dream about the longer summer vacations. As the trend continues, cruises are the most sought after mode of visiting exotic locales.

Islands around the world continue to lure the tourists. They are evolving constantly, arranging more number of water sports, boat tours, night sailing to spots of attractions, and more on-shore entertainments such as road shows, cultural dances, etc.

We are eager to sail to distant countries, uninhabited islands, sandbars, and islands where fresh, and untouched beaches welcome us.

5 New Cruise Routes in 2024

In this blog post, I have covered some new cruise routes that you won’t be able to resist.

As usual, all the big players in cruise industry have announced new tour schedules, promising us , some memorable times.

What are the fully booked cruise routes in the world?

Well, without going into elaborate description, I give below the names of regions where you can cruise to.

  • Mediterranean
  • Caribbean
  • Alaska
  • Maldives
  • Hawaii
  • Andaman & Nicobar
  • Lakshadweep
  • Norwegian Fjords, and Sounds
  • Indonesia
  • Singapore
  • Bermuda
  • Bahamas
  • Seychelles
  • Galapagos Islands
  • Madagascar
  • Canaries
  • Polynesian Islands including Fiji
  • Mauritius
  • The Philippines
  • New Zealand
  • Australia
  • Croatia
  • Swedish Islands

shipHmm.. The list is quite lengthy. I understand it is overwhelming to choose the islands that catch your family’s fancy.

Nonetheless, see if your favorite islands and countries are covered in the 2024 cruise schedules..

  1. Haw about Japan or Thailand, and Vietnam

I don’t know why I missed out these three countries in my list of popular cruising locations in the world.

I am sure you might have heard of Celebrity Cruises. Well, they have announced a tour of these countries.

Celebrity’s cruise tour is focusing on Asian wonders. Go through the list of countries you can visit with this special cruise package.

  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Vietnam
  • Thailand
  • Hong Kong

Though the count is just 5, you can expect to disembark in as many as 11 harbors.

This means, your cruise ship’s port of calls include some big cities in the 5 countries mentioned above.

The minimum duration of a cruise schedule involves 12 nights. I opine, it is an exciting period.

You will open your mouth wide when you come to know the cheap fare. It costs around $110 only per night. I mean, this is the minimum priced cruise tour.

This particular 12 night cruise goes to call ports in Japan’s four islands only.

  1. Go on a tour of Thailand, and Vietnam

Vietnam, and Thailand are close neighbours. Taking advantage of this geographical fact, Celebrity Cruises has announced an itinerary.

The surprise stop is at Singapore. The huge ship begins its voyage from Hong Kong.

This means, where you are from, you need to fly to Hong Kong, the extended arm of China in the South China Sea.

This gives you a chance to see around the bustling city of Honk Kong.

Knowing the geography of this side of Asia, I can visualize the ship’s course, stopping first at Singapore.

For more details and booking, visit the same link mentioned above under the Japan’s cruise tour.

These three Asian nations are the new cruise routes this year.

  1. How does a cruise to Kimberley sound to you?

Kimberley is the capital of Northern Cape, one of the provinces of South Africa.

A tour of Kimberley means, you are right on the land of wildlife viewing

destinations that include:

  • Botswana
  • Namibia
  • Kalahari Gemsbok National Park
  • Kgalagadi Transforntier Park

Above all, an onshore excursion of Kimberley for the cruise ship passengers means, they get the rarest opportunity of witnessing one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, namely, “Augrabies WaterFalls”.

Can you afford to blink when you are in front of the falls?

The Northern Cape province faces the Atlantic Ocean on its west. Kimberley is located on the northeast of the province.

This new cruise route is my wish. I am yet to find a cruise line to announce a cruise tour to Kimberley, South Africa.

  1. Alaska cruise

I think a cruise to Alaska remains an unfulfilled dream of millions of Americans, and Europeans. Somehow, Alaska eludes the majority of ardent travelers.

I think the reason being the unavailability of tickets. They get sold out within a few hours of announcement.

Of course, I must admit, Alaska is easily accessible by flight and thousands of tourists go to Alaska during the summer.

The route to Alaska must be over the sea in order to call it a lifetime cruise. The breathtaking glaciers, wildlife of the North Pole, some mouth-gaping sceneries will rivet the passengers on the deck of the cruise ship for hours.

Holland America has announced this dream cruise to Alaska.

The cruise is of a long duration, buddy. It’s almost a month!

On June 9th, the ultra-luxury cruise line of Holland America will honk its horn loudly from the port of Seattle, Washington State, the U.S.

Hey, man; don’t worry. You will not be left behind in the habitats of the Polar Bears. You will be dropped back in Seattle on 7th July.

There are four different types of accommodation on the vessel with loads of amenities.

I am sure you can do your search to get to the Alaska cruise tour buying web page.

  1. Embark on a memorable voyage to Bermuda

Have you heard of a cruise liner known as Carnival Venezia? The company has announced a cruise tour to Bermuda, the enchanting island that the Americans love.

Bermuda is the most visited by the just married couples for their honeymoon.

I strongly advise you never to fly to your honeymoon destination. It is ‘no’ to rail and road modes of transport also.

Cruise, buddy, to any place that consumes at least a week of traveling on the sea.

Bermuda cruise, by Carnival Venezia, starts from New York. The cruise is slated only for 2025.

However, if you are getting married in 2024, try to find another cruise line that offers a trip to Bermuda. Don’t postpone your honeymoon.

If not Bermuda, aim for a holiday in the Bahamas.

Happy sailing, guys!
