I never thought of myself as a cruiser. I imagined I’d be bored within hours of embarking. As with most things, it all depends on the cruise you choose. I don’t think I’ll ever take a mellow float down the Danube but cruises that focus on activities, nature and wildlife? Yep, that’s for me. How about you?
All the trips below except Alaska which was on a much bigger boat, are what’s called ‘expedition’ cruises: smaller ships, focused on outdoor activities, not specific ports. The itineraries are more a of a guide not a hard and fast schedule and they adjust in real time depending on the weather, wildlife sightings or other variables.
Each cruise line has its own personality and the boats can differ greatly depending on size and destination. The common denominator is that you’ll always have fun.
