Travel by Ship - Cruises in Winter
Living in the Northern Hemisphere doesn't mean you have to take a ski vacation or sit at home next to a fire. There are plenty of warm weather options and a cruise may be just what you need to get your fix of sun and fun. Here are some cruise suggestions that are sure to warm you up. If you're looking for something closer to home then there are plenty of options. The Caribbean has the best weather in the winter; it's warm and there is little chance of hurricanes or storms. A popular choice is the Virgin Islands with its fine sand beaches and plentiful water sports. Packages tend to be on the pricey side but many of them include excursions and activities such as diving. Hawaii has warm weather all year round and there are week long cruises with ports of call at most of the Hawaiian islands. Each island has different "must sees" from secluded beaches to rain forests to active volcanoes.

If you're thinking of traveling further and experiencing new cultures then your options are almost limitless. Travel destinations near the equator are warm all year round and the Southern Hemisphere is enjoying summer weather during our winter. There are small, but unique tours down The Nile with stops at all the sightseeing "musts". Despite their size, most of the cruise ships have pools and other amenities to keep you occupied in between the sights. The Orient is another cruise destination that has cultural charm and plenty of beach and sun options. A popular choice is a cruise that travels around the Southeastern Thai and Malaysian Islands with stops for lazing on secluded beaches and diving in warm, crystal blue waters.

For those that are more adventurous and want to feel like an explorer there are trips through the Amazon. Boats are usually small but more personalized and your room will have its own shower. You'll be able to call on Pacific Islands off the coast of Ecuador and visit indigenous tribes along the banks of the Amazon River. Some go as far as the Galapagos Islands where Charles Darwin studied his theories of evolution; there is wildlife that can only be seen on these islands.

If you can't get enough of the cold weather then consider winter cruises through Scandinavia. These are for the adventurous types and are usually on small ships. You'll be able to see cold weather aquatic life and visit charming towns.

Winter is no time to sit at home and read a book. Get out of town and take a cruise holiday!
