Mediterranean cruise. The Mediterranean presents a rich mosaic of sights, from the sun-washed resorts of the Riviera to the magnificent antiquities of Jerusalem, Athens and Ephesus. Stroll the broad boulevards of Barcelona and Nice, view works of the masters in the museums of Florence and Rome, or explore the intriguing markets of Marrakesh and Istanbul. Mediterranean cruises fall into four categories. Western Mediterranean itineraries typically call at ports in Portugal, Italy, Spain and the south of France, and they may also visit ports in Tunisia and Morocco. Eastern Mediterranean itineraries may include Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Bulgaria or the Ukraine. Holy Land cruises combine an Eastern Mediterranean itinerary with Israel and Egypt. Finally, there are some cruises that concentrate solely on the Greek Isles. The Mediterranean cruising season primarily lasts from late April to October, although a few ships cruise this region year-round. Cruises are seven to 14 days.
Hawaiian cruise. There are three basic types of Hawaiian cruise itineraries. First, some Hawaiian cruises start or end in Hawaii and connect to California, Ensenada or Vancouver. Other itineraries combine Hawaii cruises with French Polynesia. The third and most popular type of Hawaii cruise sails entirely within the Hawaiian Islands, or begins and ends in Hawaii and includes one foreign port, such as Fanning Island, in the itinerary. Hawaii cruises that include French Polynesia are one way, longer than a week, and often include Papeete, Bora Bora, and Moorea. It is possible to cruise Hawaii year-round. Hawaii cruises typically last seven to 15 days.
Bahamas cruises. Head for these laid-back islands on casual Bahamas cruises, most of which depart from Florida. Cruise to the Bahamas and you'll find pretty beaches, good snorkeling and opportunities for water-skiing, parasailing, jet skiing, windsurfing and more. Cruises to the Bahamas also offer colorful artwork, spirited dances and lively music. Nassau's duty-free shopping and famous straw market lure shoppers in search of handicrafts. At night, many Bahamas cruise passengers go ashore to try their luck at resort casinos. Cruises to the Bahamas are available year-round. Most cruises to the Bahamas last three or four nights, though some Caribbean cruises visit a Bahamas cruise port as part of a longer itinerary. Most ships that cruise to the Bahamas depart from Port Canaveral or Miami.
