For me the most important thing about any cruise is the ports it stops at. We at Wandermust Family love a cruise and have compiled a list of our ten favourite cruise ports to help you make a decision about which cruise ports are best for you!
Has to be the greatest port to leave from. It is definitely the most dramatic sail away you’ll ever see with unrivaled views of Venice. It’s worth going for the sail away along let alone the actual excursions
Copenhagen is one of my favourite cities in the world. It is an absolute gem for castle lovers, foodies and design fanatics. It really has something for everyone even if you only have a day in port!

New York the city that never sleeps and a perfect cruise port. Nothing beats sailing away from a snowy New York and arriving in the sunny Caribbean
Antigua is a perfect Caribbean getaway. We escaped to the beautiful Great Bird island for some bird watching and snorkeling. It was paradise
St Thomas can be busy but when we arrived it was pretty empty so we had the beautiful Magen’s bay to ourselves. We went snorkeling and swam right into a bait ball. We managed to swim with rays, reef sharks and pelicans. It was magical
Wandermust daddy made me include this despite the fact only he has ever been. It was a life changing experience for him. Currently scouring the old photos to digitize
Our first cruise together was to Alaska and was a life changing experience for me. In Juneau I saw my first glacier, the mendenhall glacier. It was made even more special by seeing my first ever whale on the sail out!
Ketchikan, my first experience of a rainforest. I never even knew Alaska had a rainforest! It was astoundingly beautiful.
Naples has to be one of the greatest ports for excursions in our opinion. Some of our favourite excursions are taking a trip to sorrento down the amalfi coast, or a day trip to Capri but my absolute favourite excursion is Pompeii and Herculaneum. And let’s not forget the pizza.
Bari,perhaps not the big name port like some of the others but beautiful none the less. We thought Bari, particularly the cathedral was beautiful and regular readers of the blog will know that Puglia is one of my favorite parts of Italy. Bari is also the gateway to see the amazing truly houses of Alberobello.
