Default Scenic cruise?

Other than Alaska, is there anywhere else to cruise that allows passengers to sit on their balconies and see a lot of pretty scenery ? We sat on our balcony for hours and really enjoyed seeing such beautiful sights. If there is someplace else that offers such a treat, I would like to try that cruise.

Hi Linda,
I don't think there is another cruise quite like cruising the inside passage in Alaska, at least I haven't heard of any. Someday I'd like to do a Panama Canal one, that I know takes a day to get through, but I don't know if there is lots of scenery to look at, anyone know?

Thank you. I had thought maybe the Panama Canal. I'm going to investigate the others and put them on my long term objectives.

Tahiti is the most scenic cruise we have ever taken, by far. The beauty of those islands is quite frankly breathtaking.

River Cruising in Europe. My 5 day cruise up the Rine River was the most relaxing way to start my first trip to Europe. At the time that we went the ships were rated. Becasue I was traveling with my parents we went first class. It was five days of watching Holland, Germany, France and Switserland sail by while the ships staff served me snaks and beverages while I sat in my club chair. For a few hours every day we stopped at a port and visited historical places, castles and cathedrals..

Some of the Greek Island itineraries are also beautiful.
