Sacred places: Many spiritual sites can be visited via cruise ship

There are 100+ cruise itineraries that provide access to sacred places – worldwide sites of healing, guidance, and divine inspiration. The significance of these hallowed sites cannot be expressed in words or pictures – to understand their impact, the faithful must visit them in person, to experience healing, guidance or divine inspiration.

While many of the world’s most sacred sites have historically been inaccessible to all but the hardiest of travelers – those who were able to make arduous overland journeys – the travel experts say travelers will find that today’s cruise itineraries make many of these locations surprisingly easy to visit.
