Cruises for People Who Hate Cruising

by Colleen Clark

Don't consider yourself a cruise person? Think again. There's far more to the cruise industry these days than cheesy ports of call and Vegas-meets-megamall design. What if you could enjoy the benefits of a cruise—all-inclusive pricing, varied itineraries, knowledgeable guides—along with the freedom that comes with your own landlubber adventures? We've rooted out the ships that will tempt even the most hardened cruise carper, from an eco-friendly boat that floats amid hippos to hands-on Antarctic adventures, forward-thinking design on the Amazon, and cruises for foodies with Jacques Pépin on board. It's time to hit the high seas.
