All aboard the fantasy cruise
Unsurprisingly, the chance to see lots of destinations is why the majority of us love the thought of a cruise, the research from the Passenger Shipping Association discovered.
Given the chance, we'd also like to detour to take in the Northern Lights, the natural phenomenon most of us want to see, followed by a spot of whale watching, plus the opportunity to spy a few dolphins and polar bears.
If that doesn't tempt you – and let's face it, it sounds like a pretty good trip – we'd also like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, to escort us to dinner at the Captain's table. Or if Johnny Depp isn't available, we'll settle for Captain Cook, who might not have the cheekbones but is guaranteed to have a few good stories.
