Many holidaymakers hear ‘cruise’ and picture the Caribbean, with its striking blue waters and powder-soft beaches. With some of the jaw-dropping islands on display, we don’t blame them.

Whether you’re a beach-lounging sun-seeker or an intrepid wildlife explorer, the Caribbean is one of the jewels in the planet’s natural crown. If you love sun, sea, sand and serenity, you’re sure to have the holiday of a lifetime on whichever of these idyllic islands you choose.

Mekong River, South East Asia

Another bucket list favourite, Vietnam’s diverse wildlife, stunning scenery and rich history make it a must-visit for Western tourists. The country is separated from neighbouring Laos by the colossal Mekong, a winding river that runs from China right the way down to Cambodia. Cruise down the Mekong to see the sights of Vietnam’s famous Hanoi, Cambodia’s iconic Angkor Wat temple and delightfully inventive floating markets. Finish your cruise in Vietnam’s largest city, the historic and vibrant Ho Chi Minh City.
