Cruises where I can visit countries in all 7 continents. Eventually, visiting the Caribbean over and over again is going to old. After this next cruise, if I don't go to different destination, I'm taking a land vacation instead.

A Transpacific. I'd like to go to Australia the super long but comfortable way for once.

North Africa - From Morocco to Egypt

The Baltics

Antarctica

The Panama Canal.

I'm sure I'll get to go on cruises to all of those locations sooner or later.

In 5 weeks I'll check one off my bucket list when I go on a Norway Coastal Voyage on the Hurtigruten Polarlys - Bergen to Kirkenes and return, hopefully Northern Lights above the Arctic Circle and lots of small ports.

Then...
  • South America around the Horn
  • Transatlantic on the Northern route that includes the Shetland Islands, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland
  • Baltic Sea
  • Another Southern Route Transatlantic (have done one)
  • Mississippi River Cruise from St. Louis to New Orleans
  • Transpacific to Hawaii
  • South Pacific Cruise
  • Transit the Suez Canal
I have no idea if/when I'll do any of them. For now I'm content to be going up the coast of Norway after wanting to do so in a small ship for almost 20 years.

Didn't put it on my bucket list, but I've always wondered what it would be like to cruise in a large suite having been in one suite as a last minute and reasonable upsell.

Now I'll know, because 9 friends and I have booked the Presidential Suite on the Freedom of the Seas for next December - all 1250 or so sq. ft with 850 sq. ft. balcony, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, living area and lots of perks. We are going to have a great time enjoying the luxury of it all. Then it will be back to Inside or OV cabins with maybe a balcony here and there.
