Summer cruises are all about seeing the sun sparkle off turquoise waters, meeting new local cultures and indulging your inner foodie. Bid farewell to the daily grind and discover Mexico, a perfect destination for a May cruise, where you can spend your days dreaming on the pristine Paradise Beach in Cozumel or exploring the mystical Mayan ruins in Tulum. Continue on to Belize to see the Great Blue Hole, a 400-meter-deep underwater sinkhole, and scuba through a network of underwater caves in Lighthouse Reef, only 100 kilometers from Belize City. Walk through the pastel-hued Spanish colonial architecture in Old Havana for a glimpse into the region's past, or turn the tiller toward The Bahamas to snorkel through the turquoise waters off the coast of Nassau. Between the many destinations to choose from and the countless, splash-worthy activities, these top summer cruises of 2019 are sure to make this season one you will never forget.
Traveling for pleasure is fun, but traveling for knowledge is a privilege. Global summer destinations will give you a taste of diverse cultures and customs. Venture to Roatan, Honduras, to meet the multi-faceted Garifuna peoples at the annual Garifuna Festival, where their Afro-Caribbean heritage remains strong. Explore the ancient San Gervasio Mayan ruins in Cozumel, Mexico, which date back to 300 AD. Or set your sights northward to Ketchikan, Alaska, home to three tribes of Northwest Coast Native Americans.
If you're looking to soak up the sun and ride some of the tallest waterslides in North America, have a Perfect Day in CocoCay*, an entire island in The Bahamas dedicated to lounging, sun bathing and splashing in turquoise waters. To immerse yourself in Bahamian culture, learn to play the traditional Goombay drum on the Grand Bahama Island while the Junkanoo parade — a brightly colored festival of traditional costumes and music — floats by. Then, cruise to Belize for epic forest zip-line adventures and gentle river tubing through limestone caves.
