How to Cruise


Featured Destinations

Alaska
The 49th State, the largest in the U.S., is perfect for cruisers, with numerous opportunities to appreciate its vast natural beauty. Sail along the Inside Passage to visit the immense ice formations of Glacier Bay and Icy Strait, as well popular ports such as Ketchikan, Skagway and Juneau, the only U.S. state capital that's not accessible by car. Or travel further north to the Kenai Peninsula and nearby Anchorage, a perfect jumping-off point for cruise tours to Denali, Fairbanks and Canada's Yukon. Maybe you'll see a bear!
Eastern Mediterranean
if you're a fan of art and antiquities, a cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean is right up your alley. With itineraries that include the Adriatic/Dalmation Coast, Black Sea, Greek Isles and Holy Land, the region is a treasure trove for history lovers. Ports such as Venice and Athens have their own unique flavor, while the Greek Isles, Crete and Cypress lure beachgoers. Religion in the Eastern Mediterranean is varied, do don't miss Dubrovnik's ancient churches, Istanbul's breathtaking mosques or Jerusalem's vibrant synagogues.
Europe
Your biggest difficulty planning a European cruise is narrowing down where you want to go. A Western Mediterranean itinerary usually includes stops in Barcelona and Monaco, as well as ports in Italy. Eastern Mediterranean cruises encompass eastern Italy, Croatia and Greece, and sometimes even Turkey and Israel. A Baltic Sea voyage brings you to Scandinavia and Russia; the Norwegian Fjords carry their own beauty. Don't forget about British Isles cruises, which allow you to visit castles in England, Scotland and London. For sun lovers, it's hard to beat the Canary Islands.

Just Back From Symphony of the Seas: Touring at the Shipyard
(10:15 a.m. EST) -- Royal Caribbean's next new Oasis-class ship, Symphony of the Seas, is just over a month away from launching. Cruise Critic was among a select group of international journalists who had the chance to spend the day onboard Symphony of the Seas during its final fitting at the STX Europe shipyard in St. Nazaire, France. The ship is 94 percent complete and most spaces are either almost completely done or at least recognizable. Only a few -- Coastal Kitchen, Hooked and the Ultimate Family Cabin, among them -- bear no similarity to what they will look like when the ship is ready for delivery to Royal Caribbean in late March.
