3. Amazon Rainforest Cruise
Take a trip on one of the few luxury cruises that operate in the Amazon rainforest, with Rainforest Cruises. The rooms onboard the luxurious Delfin I are breathtaking; one entire wall is just a giant window, so you can lie back in bed and watch dolphins swimming alongside. The food is also prepared locally; fish are caught in the river, and chefs make them! It’s as simple as that.
Rainforest Cruises has a partnership with eco-lodges like the Treehouse Lodge so in addition to being on the boat, you also stay in tree-houses surrounded by animals! The four and five-day itineraries aboard Delfin I also offers you the chance to be one of the few to visit the remote Pacaya Samiria National Reserve – the largest protected wetland reserve in the world and one of the areas of highest biodiversity. Now that’s a cruise vacation with a difference!
4. Alaska Cruises
An Alaskan cruise should be on everybody’s bucket list! There are plenty of Alaska cruises to choose from, but our pick would be a trip aboard the Viking Orion, Alaska & The Inside Passage. Starting in Vancouver, it takes you through wild misty fjords, lush forests, and walls of ice over 11 days, finally ending in Seward, USA. Viking is known for its high standards of service and comfort, so while it may be pricey this will be worth it.
The USP of this particular cruise, over other Alaska cruises, offers an in-depth, intimate look at the Tlingit. They are indigenous people from the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America. Share their stories, immerse yourself in their life and culture, and come away feeling rewarded, and more knowledgable. They have expert guides, plenty of off-shore things to do, and well, even free Wi-Fi so that you can upload straight to the ‘gram.
