Cruises

As with almost any travel decision, the best cruise is always the cruise that is best for you. Would you prefer to sail up Norway's fjords or to ply the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean? Is your family interested in a themed cruise frequented by Disney characters, or do you and your partner want an intimate, romantic river trip? Would you rather pack a tux or a sturdy pair of hiking books? With an expanding variety of journeys as well as destinations, even the skeptical are likely to find something here that will pique their interest. From the traditional family friendly lines to the smaller, more specialized cruises, Travel + Leisure can help you navigate these busy waters.
