It’s true. Cruising is becoming cool again. If you’re debating a cruise this year, here are five experiences you might want to hold out for.


Watch the World Go By on the Tallest Screen at Sea

Hurtigruten, while not a household name like Carnival or Royal Caribbean, has quite a lot going for it with its world’s first hybrid-powered expedition cruise ship and green, state-of-the-art technology. The latest innovation it boasts is the new, tallest LED screen at sea, which displays the passing views to travelers indoors. The screen faces the three all-glass elevators, spanning 10 decks with its 4K Ultra-HD visuals.


Sail Along with Underwater Views

Ponant’s Le Champlain sets sail in the Caribbean next year with a new itinerary that takes guests around Central America, including stops at Belize’s Blue Hole, Guatemala and the Yucatan Peninsula. What really makes the experience stand out, though, is Le Champlain’s underwater Blue Eye lounge, which allows you to watch out for passing underwater sea life from cruise ship comfort.


Marvel and Star Wars Days at Sea

If you’re a Disney, Star Wars or Marvel fan, you’ll be glad to know Disney Cruise Lines is bringing back its popular Star Wars and Marvel Days at Sea, but only for limited sailings. You’ll want to book the 2020 Caribbean itineraries soon to guarantee your spot cruising alongside your favorite characters, from Darth Vader and Kylo Ren to Iron Man and Captain America.


Nearly 150 Days at Sea

If you really can’t get enough and think you’d like to spend more than a third of your year at sea, you can always book the newly announced 146-day World Cruise: Extraordinary Destinations from Seabourn. It sets sail in 2020, crosses three oceans, stops at 62 ports and visits 36 countries on five continents.


Taking Tech to the Next Level

If your main cruising complaint is it’s difficult to stay connected while you’re at sea, you’ll love the changes Princess Cruises is making over the next year. It’s dedicated to expanding its “best WiFi at sea” to more than half its fleet, so you can stream, post and text with ease. Other tech improvements the cruise line is making include a mobile app which allows you to track and chat with fellow cruisers and an app that allows you to order drinks from the ship’s bars, wherever, whenever.

Pack Your Bags, You’re Going to Tokyo!

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.
