Adventure Cruises
A Way You CAN Get There From Here

Adventure cruises have let us a great way to get around that saying...
"There's no way to get there from here."

We've tried not to let it stop us simply because a destination is hard to get to.

There are a lot of places in the world that seem like that..... but there would be even more if you didn't include adventure cruises as one possibility in your plans.

A cruise... any kind of cruise isn't the first thing that pops into our minds when we're starting to decide on our next trip.... but there are just some places in the world where you really almost can't get there from here unless you take a cruise.

Other reasons we might take a cruise would be to experience an historic or interesting vessel or to see what life is like along a river. So if you're the type who thinks an Alaskan or Caribbean or Hawaiian cruise would be too tame for you, consider some of the places we've chosen to cruise.

We keep telling you we're not travel agents. If you want to book a cruise... or a flight or a hotel, you try one of our affiliate partners...

Antarctica Cruise

Antarctica Cruise

Off and on through the years, you have been able to fly to Antarctica, but realistically an adventure cruise to Antarctica is the only way to see this seventh continent.

Nile Cruise

Nile River Cruise

You can see Egypt by flying from Cairo to Aswan to Luxor, but to see the fabulous ruins between Aswan and Luxor and really get a feel for the Nile, you need to take a Nile River Cruise.

Yangtze River Cruise

Yangtze River Cruise

The Chinese have completed the Three Gorges Dam drastically changing the landscape, but a Yangtze River Cruise is still worth taking.

Sepik River Cruise

Sepik River Cruise - Papua New Guinea

Getting from one town to the next in Papua New Guinea requires flying. Seeing the tribal areas in the mountains involves driving on rugged dirt roads. To visit the tribes on the Sepik River, you need to take an adventure cruise.

Delta Queen River Cruise

Delta Queen River Cruise - steamboats

The old river steamboats are part of America history. Mark wanted to take the Delta Queen because she's an original old paddle wheeler... and who can resist the sound of a calliope?

Laccadives, SriLanka, Goa and Bombay--Indian Cruise

adventure cruise - India

Look for unusual cruises like a cruise down the coast of India. Yes, you can fly to Bombay and Goa and to Sri Lanka, but you can't get to the Laccidive Islands, and a cruise down the coast of India really does qualify as an adventure cruise.

Amazon River Cruise

adventure cruise - amazon

OK this isn't an adventure cruise.... well, it's not a cruise anyway. We opted for more adventure on a tributary of the Amazon, but with the right ship or boat, we wouldn't rule out a cruise on the Amazon.

Panama Canal DRIVE?

Day trip boat in the Miraflores Locks

Wait a minute.... what about a Panama Canal Cruise? Well, that wouldn't really be an adventure cruise. We were short on time, but wanted to see the Panama Canal... and the adventure part was hiking and birdwatching in the jungles of the Canal Zone. You can take a day trip on the canal if you want. See the full story about our Panama Canal Drive here.

We did take a Caribbean cruise once.... years and years ago. It was a good experience. We probably would take another one sometime if it were on an historic sailing ship. Another cruise that's on Mark's radar is a cruise on the Danube from Vienna to Bucharest and the Black Sea. Or a barge cruise through wine country in France. Or maybe even a cruise on the east coast of America... north in New England (Boston, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket) or south from Charleston to Jacksonville (Beaufort, Hilton Head Is., Savannah).

I often say we're not cruise people... but look at all we've taken! It's a matter of vacation style. You'll find a wide range of cruises available all over the world from luxury to adventure, though don't think you'll give up your creature comforts for an adventure cruise. We know there are lots of people that wouldn't travel any other way but on a cruise. That's the beauty of travel and custom tours.... It's like wine, whatever you like is right. Read what cruise experts have to say at Cruise Vacation Guide.

You can decide how and where you want to travel, and there will probably be a way you can do it. You may have to find a roundabout route or a different mode of transportation like adventure cruises, but if you look hard enough, you can work around that old saying... and you will find there IS a way to get there from here.

Happy travels... even if you don't travel the world... just remember that life is a journey... embrace and enjoy it!   Judy and Mark
