4 Dream Cruise Destinations on My Wish List

AD | I may not have done much traveling in my life yet. And can count the destinations I’ve been to on 2 hands. but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a whopping great big wish list of places I’d love to go. A cruise has always been high on my list. I love the sea and being on the water. And the thought of all that luxury and comfort and well as seeing so many amazing destinations in 1 trip… well, that’s just perfect isn’t it?

My boyfriend has been on a cruise around the Norwegian Fjords with his family, which I’m incredibly jealous of. He said it was amazing (they even stopped over in Amsterdam – other of my dream destinations!) and since finding out I have a lot of Norwegian ancestry, it’s made me want to do that trip even more!

I love boats (and yes I would go on the “new” Titanic, if I had the means!) and I’ve always been captivated by the sea. That part of a cruise alone, I’d love. But with so many incredible destinations to see along the way, here are 4 of my dream cruise destinations I’d love to go on and hopefully can, with some last minute cruise deals!


Probably not your typical cruise destination, as you’d usually associate cruises with warm climates and tropical destinations. But I love the cold. I love Winter. I love snow. So Alaska would be the very top of my list. Snow capped peaks, icy glaciers and rain forests, it just sounds like pure magic to me. There’s so much nature and wildlife to see along the way! Definitely somewhere I’m tempted to take a last minute cruise deal for!

Norwegian Fjords

I know I’ve just mentioned this but it has to be on my list as well. The Norwegian Fjords are something I’d love to see with my own eyes. I’d love to go during a period to see the Northern Lights but taking a cruise during Summer to see the midnight sun would be spectacular too. I’d also love to learn more about Norwegian culture through off-shore experienced. And definitely try the food!

Western Europe

Although this cruise would contain a lot of popular tourist destinations, I feel like it’d be an amazing way to see them in a different light. And also experience so much of Europe in one go! By going on a cruise like this, I’d be able to tick off my dream of going to the Netherlands and Germany. As well as re-visiting France and Spain and try so many different types of cuisine in one trip!


Japan is high up on my list of places I want to go anyway and I feel like doing a cruise of Japan would be an incredible experience. First of all, sushi is like, one of my favourite foods. And I’m sure the sushi we have in the UK is a far-cry from the sushi in Japan. Japan is such an intriguing destination and culture and I’d love the chance to experience many different sides to it and see Japan’s gorgeous sights – like Mount Fuji.

Have you ever been on a cruise? Where did you go? Which of the destinations I’ve mentioned above would you choose?

  1. Japan is a dream destination for us. Do hope in time that we are able to visit.

    1. Hope you get to visit too!

  2. Oh my I would love to do a cruise round Japan 😍 I have taken a Disney cruise round the Caribbean which was utterly amazing. This August I’m cruising on Royal Caribbean to Venice, Croatia, Montenegro and Santorini – so excited!! x

    1. Crikey! I’m very jealous!

  3. I’ve never been on a cruise but these are some great suggestions. My sister is going on a Disney cruise for her honeymoon and I’m more than a little jealous, lol. 😅

    1. Oh my god I’m so jealous!

    I still haven’t been on a cruise, I think of the ones you’ve listed I’d pick a cruise around the Norwegian Fjords. It looks so beautiful there.

    1. Good choice!

  5. My dream is to visit Japan multiple times over and over and I would LOVE to do a Cruise as I think it would be so different! I would also love to visit Alaska too, the views would be amazing!! xx

    1. I’m sure there’s no way to do all of Japan in one trip!

  6. I’d love to visit Norway and Japan but i think I’ll be hopping on a plane. I have a really weird fear of water? I can swim so I don’t really know what that’s all about but (for obvious reasons) the thought of a cruise is quite terrifying X


    1. Oh really? That is weird? Although on a MASSIVE cruise, if you don’t go near a window / the top deck, I doubt you’d notice you were on one!

  7. Japan would be so great. I hope to get there by some means within my lifetime.

    1. Me too – one day!

  8. I’d love to go somewhere like to the Caribbean for the sunshine!

    1. Bet that’d be beautiful x

  9. Your list is pretty similar to mine 😀

  10. I was on a cruise years ago, we hit Mexico, the Bahamas and Jamaica. Honestly, Jamaica was my favorite. We got to walk up a waterfall and it was AMAZING! You should add it to your list. If I did another one it would be Alaska or Europe as well. Who knew there was a Japan one?! I might have to add that to my list.

    1. Wow that sounds amazing!
