Default Best Sailaways in the World

Someone once told me the best sailaways in the world by cruiseship were known as the "Big 5". These ports are:
Rio de Janeiro - San Francisco - Cape Town - Sydney - Venice

Does anyone agree/disagree or would add any others? I would like to add New York, but as so many cruiseships don't sail into Manhatten any more would it still qualify???

I would certainly add NYC to the list. There are still plenty of ships that leave from the Manhatan piers. You do lose some of splender leaving from Red Hook or NJ. I have sailed out of NYC 0 times and never tire of the views.
