Seven Wonders of the Waves

Think you’ve travelled the globe? Well, what about the blue bits? With most of the planet covered by water, the best way to explore the world is by cruise ship; so step aboard and discover the Seven Wonders of the Waves.

  1. Transatlantic thrill

It’s up there on the bucket list – crossing the Atlantic on Cunard’s classic ocean liner Queen Mary 2 from Southampton to New York. Alternatively, sail from the bright lights of Manhattan to Southampton as this neatly avoids jetlag too.

  1. Cruise the world

Jump aboard the ultimate sea-going adventure that circumnavigates the earth, taking in the Americas, Asia and Australasia, from the likes of P&O Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Oceania and Cruise & Maritime Voyages, lasting from around 100 days to six months.

  1. Floating safari

Get wet and wild with bathing elephants and basking hippos on a Chobe River cruise aboard the evocatively-named Zambezi Queen. Sunset cruising and picnics ashore make this a safari with a difference.

  1. Tropical discovery

Sail to untamed Papua New Guinea with Silversea, P&O and Noble Caledonia and step ashore to discover topical diversity that stems from prehistoric times with exotic wildlife and ethnic tribes untouched by modern life.

  1. Natural Nordics

The best vantage point to marvel at the spectacular majesty of the Norwegian fjords is from the deck of a cruise ship, which offers a perfect perspective of this dramatic land of trolls and traditions. Cruise there with Thomson, Regent Seven Seas, Hurtigruten and Celebrity.

  1. Mysterious Indonesia

Follow the trail of ferocious Komodo dragons and rumbling volcanoes on voyages aboard Star Clippers tall ships or traditional phinisi schooners through the mysterious islands of Indonesia and encounter a world that time has forgotten.

  1. Remote Alaska

Welcome to one of the world’s last great wildernesses, where ships often provide the only route in. This is the kingdom of the grizzly bear and the fearsome predators rule vast icy tracts of this US state, famous for its fabulous wildlife and whale-spotting thrills. The two biggest Alaska operators are Princess and Holland America but you can also cruise there with Seabourn, Azamara, Oceania, Celebrity and UnCruise Adventures amongst others.
