(TECUMSEH, ON) – With Wave Season in full swing, many potential first time cruisers are asking what are the most coveted travel destinations. Wave Season is the period between January and March when cruise lines roll out their best cruise deals.

Alaska – A trip to the Great Land allows travelers to connect with Mother Nature like never before as they experience breathtaking fjords, majestic wildlife and beautiful scenery. From hiking magnificent snow-capped peaks to releasing your inner dare-devil on a thrilling river rafting expedition, Alaska will bring out the adventurous side in everyone.

Plus, make the most of your vacation by indulging in some of Alaska’s famous north Pacific salmon, taking a dog sled ride high atop a glacier, or shopping for hand-crafted jewellery and authentic Native American artwork.

South Pacific – Make your way to the South Pacific where you will be surrounded with hundreds of islands like Palau, Samoa, Lautoka, and Suva; destinations that are perfect for those who love spending time in nature and lying on the beach.

Explore the iconic Hawaiian Islands of Hilo and Honolulu, whether you want to swim through the clear azure waters or hike around the volcanoes. Watch the sunset while enjoying a traditional luau.
