Okay, I’ll be the first to admit that i’ve never even heard of these cities, Klaipeda, Geiranger, Ceuta. But, never underestimate the power of the cruising industry. If you build a port, they will come! According to a recent article written by Arline and Sam Bleecker of the Chicago Tribune, Regent Seven Seas, NCL, Costa and Holland America are just some of the cruise lines heading to uncharted waters. Looking for something out of the ordinary for your next cruise? Tired of the same old places? Check these out:
On shore in the Baltic city of Klaipeda, Lithuania’s third largest metropolis and cruise ship port, on a Regent Seven Seas cruise, for instance, and you could opt to descend into 88.5-foot-deep corridors, mine shafts and underground tunnels of a former Soviet nuclear missile site.
For the less fainthearted, a Norwegian Cruise Line voyage to the Nordic lands lets you see what the Lonely Planet guidebook calls some of the most spectacular scenery in the world in Geiranger, a small tourist town nestled in the mountains in the western part of Norway.
This just proves that there is a cruise for everyone no matter what your interests are! So where are you cruising next and why??
