New Orleans

New Orleans never needs a reason for a party, but this year the Big Easy turns 300 years old and we can help you can join the party beginning this December. Expect tercentennial celebrations and year-long festivities. With new riverside parks lining the Mississippi, an extended streetcar line leading from the French Quarter to the burgeoning Bywater neighborhood and parades aplenty, this is the perfect year to head to the Crescent City.

Book a week-long Caribbean cruise on board Vision of the Seas sailing roundtrip from New Orleans and making stops in Mexico, the Bahamas and Grand Cayman.

Of all the New Year’s resolutions you can make, “traveling more” is probably your best bet for enrichment and unforgettable adventure. If that’s on your list for 2018, then your best bet to cover off multiple destinations is a cruise. You’ll be able to visit different countries, experience a wide range of activities—and you’ll only have to unpack once!

To jumpstart your travels, we’ve rounded up the best places to visit this year, whether they’ve made the list because of major events, newfound status or just because they’re a great value this year.

Here are the top spots to add to your list, what to see, and the best cruises to get you there.
