Make the Most of your Cruise with Destination Immersion
One of the most exciting aspects of cruising is waking up in a new destination every day. However, there are some places where one day simply just isn’t enough. You never want to feel rushed on your vacation or feel like you missed anything because you had to get back to the ship in time, which is why immersive cruises are becoming increasingly popular.
Rather than spending every night on board, you will have the opportunity to spend more time on land as you travel with your fellow passengers to unique destinations that might traditionally be too far off the waterway to explore in a day. This cruising style has also opened up new ports and itineraries to travelers, making it possible to enjoy the luxuries of cruising while also getting to spend time traveling the region. Destinations like Asia and Africa have become the perfect spots for this type of immersive cruising.
Some experiences you don’t want to rush. Like watching a herd of wild elephants congregates at the watering hole, seeing the mighty lions leisurely lay in the sun, or witnessing a cheetah, the fastest mammal on earth, sprinting across the African plains. It’s a memory from your trip you will cherish forever, so you shouldn’t be worried about constantly checking the time before you’ve spotted Africa’s famous “Big Five” animals. African safaris can be one of the most exciting and rewarding travel experiences you will ever have, but the great outdoors don’t get all the attention.
Exploring big cities can be just as fun as spotting the “Big Five” on safari. Cape Town is a stunning seaside metropolis where the mountains seem to fall onto the beaches. Straddling oceans, Cape Town features miles of breathtaking coastline and long stretches of majestic mountains. The city itself is home to world-renowned restaurants and a vibrant nightlife that you won’t want to miss. When you book a cruise that stays overnight in Cape Town, you can even score tickets to a ruby or soccer game in the Cape Town Stadium. Spend one day roaming about town and the next relaxing on the picture-perfect beaches or hiking in the mountains for panoramic views of the city below.
Regardless of where you travel, you don’t want to rush through your vacation. Immersive cruises are the perfect solution for travelers who want to see it all while also spending time getting to local culture.
