There is no better way to see the world than to view it while travelling on a peaceful cruise. You can sit up on deck, feel the gentle sea breeze caress your skin, smell the faint scent of salt in the air, the sun kissing your bare arms and legs, the great blue wonder completely surrounding you on all sides. You will be in awe. When you are out on the water, you are free. The sense you get out there will fill your soul with essential essence while the water floats you to pastures new. You will be able to get off and explore a remote desert island or visit some exotic city gem. It is something to dress up for, to wear those colourful shorts where there may be no opportunity otherwise. There are parties on board and social life. You will meet people of all colours and creed, and you will never want to get off.
With that in mind, here are some luxurious boat cruises you must board.
