These port towns are worth a visit, whether you are on a cruise or not.
Crete is the largest Greek Island in the Mediterranean, and is awesome for exploring ancient monuments.
I have never been on a cruise, but every time I tell someone that, they go on and on about how amazing it is. Obviously, I am missing out on something, and I am beginning to think that ‘thing’ is Port towns.
Port towns are especially important because they are the main reason many places became towns in the first place. They are also world-famous for hosting cruise ships and allowing travelers to see many different parts of the world on one trip. After the last few years of cruise-related PR nightmares, cruises kind of have a bad reputation right now.
Maybe these port cities will be able to turn that around.
Belize, has everything from mountains and beaches, to swamps and jungles, and everyone there speaks English!
Grand Turk is the capital of the Turk and Caicos Islands, and is especially known for stingray watching, although Bindi Irwin should probably stay away.
St. Lucia, in the Caribbean is best known for its culture; a rich blend of African, Indian, Caribbean, British, Spanish, and French customs.
St. Thomas is part of the Virgin Islands, and is the most visited port in the Caribbean.[ via ]
