The United Kingdom

While not exactly an up-and-comer, the U.K. makes the list. Why? It’s a great value—relatively speaking—since the pound is historically low compared to the U.S. dollar. Use this to your advantage by visiting Southampton, England, where you can extend your vacation with a hotel stay in London, or Dover to see a massive medieval castle perched high atop white cliffs.

Scotland has its own draws, like Edinburgh with its celebrated pubs (The Royal Mile, Deacon Brodie’s). There’s also festivals that draw crowds from around the globe like the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, where armed service members march to bagpipers and drummers, and the renowned Fringe Festival, where thousands of performers present weeks of dance, comedy, theater, music, poetry and more.

You can hit destinations throughout the U.K on 12- and 13-night British Isle cruises this year on board Brilliance of the Seas May through July.

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.
