Like many of you, I have a cruise wishlist which grows on a weekly basis, but right at the top is seeing bears and whales in Alaska. If you love going off the beaten track but want to do it in style, then you’ll find plenty of inspiration in our guide to luxury adventure cruising (page 76). The USA is one of my favourite destinations for a stay-and-cruise holiday. Whether you choose to start in New York, Miami, California or New Orleans, the possibilities are endless – with destinations ranging from South America and Hawaii to the Caribbean.
