More than 800 travel experts—including Inspiration—were asked by FlightNetwork to compile and rank the best travel experiences in the world. These 50 amazing experiences topping the World’s Ultimate Bucket List© are the result! Can you guess what the #1 top-ranked experience on the list is? Hint: It involves lions, tigers, and bears. Yes; it’s “Take a wildlife safari in Africa.”
Not surprisingly, several destinations on this list are made available by Inspiration on some of our most popular cruises and tours. If any of these line up with your travel goals, we’d love to take you there!
“Lose Yourself in the Streets of Paris” is #6 on the list. While we don’t foresee any of our passengers getting lost, many have opted in for our Paris extension on this history-focused Seine River cruise with Oliver North.
“Go Island-Hopping in Greece” is #10. Our past cruises on the Aegean Sea and upcoming “Footsteps of Paul” cruise in the Mediterranean do just that. These travelers will also enjoy #46 on the bucket list: “Take in the Sights in Rome.”
“Take an Alaskan Cruise” is #20 on the list. With some of the most stunning mountain views in the world, it’s not difficult to see why. We lead several of these cruises every summer!
“Visit Petra” is #24. Often, our Israel tours include extensions in Jordan. Inspiration travelers who choose this unforgettable destination find its treasures (which date back to 312 B.C.) forever seared into their memories.
“Hike Through Volcanoes in Hawaii” is #33 on the list. Passengers on this Inspiration-led summer cruise will have that opportunity in August as their ship docks in Hilo, Hawaii. Two days later, they can check off #44 on the list: “Marvel at Nature on the Na Pali Coast.”
“Swim in the Dead Sea” is #35. Most of our passengers take advantage of this experience during our biblical tours of Israel, which almost always include a relaxing day in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea.
“Visit the Mayan Ruins” is #39. Our frequent Western Caribbean cruises take passengers to ports in Mexico and Belize, where these ancient wonders are only a short excursion away.
