The most renowned cruise – Royal Caribbean is one the biggest cruise ships.

There are DJ lessons for teens, a teens only casino nights and a no-elders-allowed lounges where they can enjoy until past their parents’ bedtimes. This ship embarks its journey from a number of ports- in Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane; in Asia: Singapore, HCMC, Phuket, Penang etc; in Europe: Barcelona, Rome.
- Adventure Cruise:
Because we love to explore the less-explored destinations of earth. And exploring them on a cruise ship has its own thrills. Some of the exotic destinations include: Arctic- where the passengers sale through the groups of polar bear; Antarctica- the ship has some of the most learned naturalists on-board who give mind blowing insights on evolution; other destinations include Galapagos and Amazon.
- Food & Wine Cruise:
One thing that sets a country apart from another is the cuisine and it happens to be one of the major factors for which we travel. To taste, smell and indulge in the flavors of a different country. One such country on my list is Australia (blame masterchef Australia ) the riot of flavors and ingredients is just so rhythmic now pair them with some wine and relax as the time goes by. This one embarks from Australian ports of- Brisbane, Sydney, Auckland.
