2014 is a great year to get out and celebrate some of the finest locations the world has to offer. With several landmarks due to fall throughout the year, many tourists flocking to travel hot-spots will be able to also relax and enjoy a cruise around some of the less well known areas of their chosen destination.

Glasgow and Environs

All eyes will be on Glasgow this year, as it hosts the 2014 Commonwealth games. While there is much to see and do in this cosmopolitan city, there is also a wealth of opportunity to explore the wilder side of Scotland. Why not take a cruise around the beautiful Hebrides, and admire the stunning views and plethora of wildlife that are to be found in this out of the way corner of the world.

Great War Sites

2014 marks the anniversary of 100 years since the start of the First World War. Many visitors are expected to travel to sites in Belgium and France to learn more about the events that took place there, and to pay their respect to the many brave souls that lost their lives during the conflict. There are several cruises that tour the sites in Normandy, including a remembrance service on June 6th.

Panama Canal

Cross the Atlantic and join those marking another centenary in 2014. The Panama Canal is a hundred years old this year, and this landmark in navigational history will be marked by thousands, as they cruise through this epic waterway that connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

Icy Siberia

The icy waters of Siberia are a surprisingly popular place in which to take a cruise. The epic landscape of endless forests, volcanic rocks and huge tundra provide a magnificent home to the many species of wildlife in the area – including majestic sea eagles, bears and sea lions.

New York by Sea

New York is a key destination in 2014. Cunard’s three queens will be marking the 10th anniversary of Queen Mary II with a series of crossings form Southampton to New York, and passengers will be travelling in true style, with a week to spend in the Big Apple before the leisurely cruise home.

Luxury Barbados

For those seeking the sun in 2014, consider a trip to Barbados. A new luxurious Sandals resort opened there at the end of last year, and the resort is more accessible than ever, with more regular flights. Thomas Cook, for example, now runs a twice weekly service. Barbados is also a great starting point for a Caribbean cruise, which can be taken in combination with a hotel stay, or as a stand-alone adventure. The choice is yours.
