When you picture going on a cruise, the image that usually springs to mind is relaxing on a pool side lounger and soaking up some sun on the top deck of a ship. And there is a lot to be said for that – we can use some warm rays after the long Canadian winter months.
Some travellers want a little more adventure in their travel and a lot more activity. Fortunately, there are a host of cruise lines that offer up an exciting array of experiences. Whether you are into exploring local history and culture at fascinating destinations, hiking and biking excursions along inspiring landscapes, setting off for some canoeing or kayaking exploration of unfamiliar shorelines or even deck-top yoga classes in the sun, there is a cruise to satisfy the adventurer in you.
Here are just a few fantastic voyages to consider. When you've found the trip that's right for you, a CAA Travel Consultant is here to help you plan our trip.
