5 Awe-Inspiring Moments to Enjoy on a Cruise

The sensational thing about traveling is that it can be truly inspiring. Cruising can provoke feelings and emotions that stir and amaze. When you experience new cultures and activities, it makes you realize how wondrous every single day can be.

There are many awe-inspiring moments to experience on a cruise vacation. Here are just a few.

#1. The Sights and Sounds of Nature’s Icy Glaciers

An Alaska cruise provides the opportunity to experience Mother Nature at her finest. Take a 7-Day Alaska cruise from Vancouver and visit Glacier Bay National Park. This park was named one of the Cruise Wonders of the World by Condé Nast Traveler. See a massive glacier from two different viewpoints —the sea and land —on the Mendenhall Glacier & Whale Quest excursion.

The brand-new Norwegian Bliss starts sailing to Alaska in June. This ship offers many open spaces where you can see Alaska's stunning natural sights. View the beautiful turquoise and aquamarine colors of glaciers from the floor to ceiling windows of the observation lounge.

#2. The Unrivaled Beauty of the Ancient Mayan Ruins

See the stunning oceanside Mayan ruins of Tulum on a 7-Day Western Caribbean cruise from Miami. Tulum should be on every cruiser’s bucket list. The 13th-century cliffside Mayan ruins are perched right above the Caribbean sea. Originally built as a watchtower, the ruins are one of Mexico’s most often photographed sights. Tulum’s white-sand beaches are also a draw for cruisers. Sea turtles and iguanas are often seen on the Tulum’s beaches.

#3. The Serenity of The Blue Lagoon

A Norwegian Norway, Iceland, & UK cruise gives you a perfect chance to experience one of the world's greatest natural wonders. The Blue Lagoon, a Geothermal Spa located in Iceland, has been named one of the 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. Set in a Lava Field, the Blue Lagoon offers an experience like no other on Earth. The milky blue waters of the lagoon are filled with mineral-rich water that has been found to hydrate and nourish the skin. A trip to the Blue Lagoon will help relax the body and soul.

#5. The Sacred and Moving Temple of Poseidon

The Temple of Poseidon is perhaps one of the most well-known sites in Greece. Standing several hundred feet above the sea on the rocks of Cape Sounio, this structure is quite breathtaking. It is the place where ancient Greeks went to worship Poseidon, the God of the seas.
