Specialty Cruise Lines

These cruise lines offer a truly unique vacation experience, with a wide range of possible amenities and itineraries. Some are expedition cruise lines, others have sailing yachts or are coastal ships.

On these types of cruise lines, there's usually a focus on a specific destination or theme. Itineraries are usually very destination intensive, aided by the fact that they're able to reach many ports of call that larger ships can't.

Expedition cruise lines are a great fit for adventure-seeking travelers, featuring exciting destinations like the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, and the Norwegian coast. During the cruise, there will usually be plenty of interesting lectures given by experts on the destination being visited. Often, shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise. In fact, some of these cruise lines have all-inclusive pricing. There's a definite focus on the ship's surrounding scenery, as well as opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat. Small, but comfortable, ships are commonplace here, with anywhere from basic to very luxurious public spaces, cuisine, and accommodations (depending on the cruise line and ship).

Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience. Accommodations and cuisine on these intimate vessels can be anywhere from good to fantastic, depending on the cruise line. Destinations offered by these cruise lines may include the Caribbean, Europe, Panama Canal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica.

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

Things to do near Glasgow, Scotland

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Glasgow, along with a brief description:

♦ George Square

When spending time in Glasgow, a good starting point for exploring is George Square. The main civic square in the city, you will discover yourself surrounded by breathtaking architecture, prominent government buildings, and multiple important monuments. Among some of the notable buildings in this area are the General Post Office, the Tourist Information Centre, and the former Bank of Scotland building. George Square is also the host of many concerts, ceremonies, light shows and political events, dating all the way back to the 1919 Battle of George Square.

♦ Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

One of the most highly-rated museums in Glasgow is the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Discover 22 galleries with exhibits on European and Renaissance art (including the painting Christ of Saint John of the Cross by Dali), ancient Egyptian artifacts, European jewelry, preserved animals, pipe organ recitals, and much more. There are also many temporary exhibits, so if you plan on visiting, it’s best to see what’s scheduled for when you’ll be there. Best of all, admission to this museum is free, so you’ll never have to worry about budgeting to see these fascinating displays (subject to change).

♦ Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel

Another top-rated (and rather unique) museum in Glasgow is the Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel. This innovative museum specializes in antique vehicles and groundbreaking hands-on exhibits. Discover over 3,000 modes of transportation from skateboards to trains and everything in between. Interactive displays allow you to explore the streets of Glasgow without going far, where you can even board old school buses and trains, before learning about the city’s shipbuilding history and then becoming a member of the fire department at the interactive fire truck. This is a great activity for young kids who love to get involved with hands-on learning, but it’s perfect for travelers of all ages and interests, too!
