Tap into your adventurous side during a cruise to one of these under-the-radar locations. These 10 unique and lesser-known ports lead to some major world sights that are off the beaten path. Choose your favorite, and let us help make that dream a reality in 2021!
St. John's, Antigua
Antigua is brimming with things to do and places to see. Not to mention, the abundant natural beauty you'll notice the minute your ship gets close to port. Aside from hundreds of stunning beaches and secluded coves, Antigua offers some of the finest dining in the Caribbean. Once you've had your fill of sun, fun and exquisite food, head to the Antigua Distillery to lift your spirits and get a true taste of the island.
Known as "the town of roses and ruins," the port city of Visby is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is ranked as Scandinavia's best-preserved medieval city. Walk amid the ruined churches and narrow cobblestone streets and you will instantly be transported to medieval times when this city thrived as a Hanseatic (trade) port.
Upon arrival at Icy Strait Point, you will become immersed in everything you've always dreamed of Alaska—unparalleled access to adventure, wildlife and wilderness. You'll also be introduced to the genuine hospitality of the Native Tlingit, as Icy Strait Point is located in Alaska's largest Native Tlingit village of Hoonah. Stop in one of the 100% Alaskan-owned retail shops for an exclusive shopping experience, especially since Icy Strait Point is a cruise destination only open when there is a ship in port!
Few travelers can say they've visited the exotic port of Muscat, Oman. In comparison to its flashy neighbors like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Muscat's terrain is off-the-charts thrilling. From the coastline's fresh, sea air to the arid Hajar mountains, your options for adventure are endless. Trek the hills for a bird's-eye view of the port and fortresses by day, and spot dolphins at sundown as you dine on the freshest seafood.
Few islands of the Caribbean have this much versatility! Enjoy your vacation however you desire with the endless options available in CocoCay. If you'd like a more relaxed experience, swim right up to the bartender in the largest freshwater pool in the Bahamas. For an adrenaline-pumping experience, strap in on the Zip Line or ride the tallest waterslide in North America. Every day is an adventure on CocoCay.
Named after a German merchant, Adolf Luderitz, this lesser-known port features unique German architecture complete with domes, towers and turrets, steep roofs, bay windows, Windergartens (sunroom), and other colonial attractions. While visitors of other parts of Namibia may come to witness the extraordinary wildlife on a safari, visitors of this wind-swept hillside town come to experience the tranquility. Insider's Tip: Just a 12-minute drive beyond the rocky coastline lies the abandoned diamond-mining town of Kolmanskop in the Namib desert. Take a tour to see the sand-filled houses and the remains of an era long gone.
Imagine a place, a sea-bound kingdom with its own captivating story to tell. The Isle of Man bears a rich history of extraordinary stories, told by Mother Nature herself with the lush greenery, and filled with landforms carved by early visitors. Explore ancient and Neolithic sites, as well as some of the island's main attractions such as Castle Rushen, one of Europe's best-preserved medieval castles, or the world's largest working waterwheel.
Never heard of it? That's because very few itineraries visit this remote destination at the heart of the Atlantic. All the more reason to add it to your bucket list for bragging rights! Towering over the fjords, Qaqortoq is best seen on foot. Tour nearby hilltops for a panoramic view of the surrounding mountain areas. A trip to the hot springs is only recommended for the strong-willed because once you experience the tranquilizing 100-degree-Fahrenheit warm waters, you will find it difficult to see why one should be doing anything else in life.
This capital city of Prince Edward Island is close to the heart of Canadians, as it played as the backdrop to the famous conference that led to the unification of Canada. This quiet, small town—in fact, the smallest of Canada's provincial capitals—is easy to explore on foot. Visit the Victorian-era streets and harbor, or shop, dine and listen to live music along the busy waterfront. Plus, if seafood is your thing, be sure to sample some delicious local Mussels!
Known as the gateway to the Galapagos, visitors will first step foot on Baltra when visiting the islands. Unlike the other islands that make up this archipelago, Baltra is not a remnant of a volcano. Instead, it is a patch of land that was once underwater before volcanic activity lifted it. For this reason, Baltra is flat and rocky versus the other islands which are hilly. With its ideal terrain and positioning, the United States built a military base here to protect the Panama Canal. The airport from the base still remains today and was remodeled in 2015 to become the first airport in the world to operate using solar power.
