7 Cruise Wonders of the World

There’s something mesmerizing about sailing the seas, for instance, it’s a truly carefree way of exploring nature’s finest creations without having to hike for miles and the fact that you can pretty much do anything while at sea. Check your emails, run a hot bath, undergo a divine spa treatment or simply relax poolside with a fruity cocktail. Some cruises really invite the eye to a collection of unusual sights that can be enjoyed in double the time of a flight holiday. Read on to discover the 7 cruise wonders of the world as discovered by Princess Cruises.

Fiordland National Park, New Zealand

Snow-capped mountains, granite hills and breathtaking fjords surround the blue waters at Fiordland National Park in New Zealand, now listed at a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This incredible sight was also the film location for Lord of the Rings!

Panama Canal

Built over 100 years ago, the Panama Canal locks feature green landscapes scenes on either side, which is contrasted by the industrial elements that still remain today.

Shiretoko Peninsula, Japan

The isolated beaches and rugged forests of the Shiretoko Peninsula can only be accessed by boat or foot, however the dense forests are home to brown bears, so maybe the latter isn’t such a great idea! A scenic cruise features majestic cliffs, dramatic waterfalls and wildlife encounters such as foxes and deer.

Glacier Bay, Alaska

Witness the extraordinary natural wonders at Glacier Bay at the solid glaciers descend and come crashing down into the calm waters. During the winter the surrounding mountains are picturesque with snowcaps with bold white vistas. During the summer, the snow melts from the mountains and reveals tricking waterfalls and vibrant green vegetation.


Christ the Redeemer, Brazil

Standing at almost 30 meters tall, the Christ the Redeemer statue overlooks the lively city of Rio and the extremely majestic Sugarloaf Mountain. Whether you intend to cruise pass this fascinating and colossal statue, or get an up close shot from the walking route, you won’t want to miss this glorious site.


Trunk Bay, St John

Trunk Bay is certainly a paradise island, with the white powdery sands, glistening lagoon and a backdrop of lush tropical forest. The Virgin Island National Park backs Trunk Bay on St Jon Island, covering 60% of the entire isle with incredible sightseeing tours and water excursions.

Hagia Sofia, Instanbul

Hagia Sofia was a Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal basilica, then became an imperial mosque and is now a museum. This particular site is definitely worth stepping off board and into the mesmerizing interiors of this mosque, now turned museum.
