A new cruise ship terminal is set to open in Dubai in 2012, allowing a total of 5 ships to dock at a time (currently, there is only space for 2). Expect more ships to add Dubai to their itineraries, and consider cruises to the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf and those that follow the Spice Route to India and Asia.

Europe
OK, so cruising in Europe isn’t exactly new … but this year, more ships are slated to stay in the Mediterranean through the winter instead of making their traditional journeys to the Caribbean for the season. This winter, consider taking a cruise to the Canary Islands or Morocco during off-peak months for a fraction of the price.

With Rio the host of the World Cup, the 2012 UN Earth Summit and the 2016 Olympics, the city is expected to be a hot destination over the next few years. Luckily, the city is investing plenty of money in the existing cruise port, making travel to nearby attractions even easier.

The Mississippi
The Mississippi has seen a steep decline in cruising in recent years after its 2 biggest cruise lines went bankrupt. But fear not! Two new cruise lines are setting their sights on the Mighty Mississippi: one with a totally refurbished steamboat named the American Queen, and another with a brand-new paddlewheeler named the Queen of the Mississippi.
