There are plenty of ways to choose your next travel destination. You can scope out hot travel deals, stay abreast of the latest trends, or decide to check a once-in-a-lifetime vacation like cruising to Antarctica off your bucket list. You could spin a globe, close your eyes, and point—although odds are, that method will lead you to the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Or, you can simply allow the universe direct you.
What can the characteristics of your zodiac sign tell you about your travel preferences? A lot! We’ve analyzed the personality traits of each astrological sign and handpicked the perfect vacation destination for each zodiac type. Let the stars align and lead you to the perfect cruise travel destination for your personality.
As an Aries, you’re passionate and energetic. You have a competitive spirit and enjoy a physical challenge. People born under Aries can be impulsive, which means keeping informed of last-minute cruise deals is a good idea. (You can do that by signing up for our email newsletter.) Aries can be impatient and should look for cruise itineraries that keep them moving.
Aries should travel to the Norwegian Fjords. The abundant opportunities for outdoor adventure in this region are a perfect match for the bold Aries soul. On sea days, which are few and far between on Norwegian Fjords itineraries, onboard amenities and stunning views of fjords and glaciers will keep you entertained. As an Aries, your most compatible travel companions are Libras and Leos.
As a Taurus, you’re a hopeless romantic with an eye for beauty. You want the best out of life, especially when it comes to food, music, travel, and fashion. You most enjoy travel destinations that are beautiful and inspiring. People born under the Taurus sign can be stubborn, which means traveling with like-minded companions is a must. You’re also known for being great with money, which means you’re always looking for a good travel deal.
If you’re a Taurus, cruising the Adriatic will be a perfect vacation! After all, Venice is one of the most romantic destinations on earth. You’ll love the stunning architecture in destinations like and Dubrovnik and Kotor, as well as the region’s sun-kissed beaches and sparkling harbors. The delectable fresh, local seafood is sure to please the refined palate of a Taurus. The best travel companions for a Taurus tourist are Scorpios and Cancers.
Geminis are ruled by the Twins and have two sides to their personalities. As a Gemini, you’re social and cheerful, and dislike being alone. You can also be quiet and serious, and occasionally nervous and indecisive. Planning travel well in advance will help you to feel safe and allow time to mull over your shore excursion options.
Geminis will love cruising to South America. The mix of bustling, cultured cities, and relaxing, secluded beaches will appeal to both sides of your personality. A luxury cruise, where everything is taken care of for you, will ease those famous Gemini anxieties. Sagittarius and Aquarius star signs make ideal travel companions for a Gemini.
Known for being supremely empathetic and intuitive, Cancers make excellent friends. They’re homebodies who love relaxing, spending time with friends, and enjoying great food. They often dislike strangers, so private, customized shore excursions are ideal for Cancers.
Pack your bags for a long voyage, Cancer. Your perfect cruise destination is Southeast Asia! Cities like Kuala Lumpur and Singapore are renowned for their incredible cuisine, making them bucket list destinations for foodie Cancer signs. Voyage itineraries in Southeast Asia often include relaxing sea days, providing you with the downtime you crave. Before booking, call up your Capricorn and Taurus pals—they’re your most compatible travel companions.
As a Leo, you’re a warm, passionate, social being. You have a deep appreciation for the finer things in life and love a good holiday. Leos can occasionally be self-centered, and will best avoid conflict by choosing travel companions who have similar interests or are very easygoing. You love drama and theater—you’ll find Leos enjoying the onboard entertainment during a cruise.
Leos will love a luxury cruise to the Western Mediterranean. From the ancient amphitheaters of Italy to the heart-stirring flamenco performances of Barcelona, this region delivers the melodrama you live for. The Western Med also offers up excellent shopping, great food, and friendly local culture. As a Leo, you’ll find the best travel companions in friends born under the Aquarius and Gemini signs.
Virgos are practical, hardworking types who can be prone to worrying. As a Virgo, you’re very analytical and prefer to plan a vacation well in advance. You can be shy and would prefer a smaller, more intimate cruise experience to traveling aboard a mega-ship. You love animals and nature and try to incorporate both into a vacation.
Virgos should cruise to Australia! With so much to see and do in Australia, a Virgo can plan to her heart's content. And as for nature and animals, well, Australia’s got that covered. As a Virgo, cruising is an ideal mode of travel—when you’re onboard an Azamara ship, there’s very little to worry about. Your most compatible travel companions are those born under the Pisces and Cancer signs.
Known for being gracious, fair, and co-operative, Libras make great travel companions. As a Libra, you love making new friends and hate being alone (unless you’re curled up with a good book). Libras are intellectuals with a taste for luxury. You live for impassioned, cerebral debates and like your life to be enriched by travel, art, and beautiful things.
Libras will love cruising the Baltic region. The plethora of art, architecture, music, dance, philosophy, and literature you’ll be immersed in when visiting St. Petersburg is a Libra’s dream come true. And as a book lover, you’ll love fairytale towns like Tallinn and Copenhagen. Social butterfly Libras will love the opportunities for making friends that come with cruising, too. Find an Aries or Sagittarius to tag along, as they’re your most compatible travel companions.
Scorpios can often be summed up as cool, calm, and collected. As a Scorpio, you’re known for your intensity and decisiveness—but you can also be a perfectionist. You place a high value on authenticity and truthfulness, and research your travel decisions thoroughly.
Scorpios should cruise to Northeast Asia! A country-intensive voyage to Japan will deliver that authentic travel experience you’re seeking, and give you plenty to research ahead of time. Scorpios have intense personalities and need to decompress on vacation. The serene temples and beautiful gardens of Japan will restore your inner sense of calm. Oh, and did we mention the food? It’s worth the trip. Scorpios are comfortable as solo travelers, but if you prefer a companion you’ll find your best mates in the Taurus and Cancer signs.
As a Sagittarius, you’re often the life of the party. You’re funny and energetic, with an idealistic outlook on life. People born under Sagittarius tend to travel more than anyone else, but can be impatient when it comes to the details of planning a trip. You are reflective in nature and look for answers to life’s biggest questions in the world around you.
You need a travel destination that can balance your philosophical and fun-loving sides. The Greek Isles is a perfect fit! By day, you’ll walk in the footsteps of some of the greatest thinkers of all time in places like Athens and Rhodes. By night, you’ll enjoy the fun, festive atmosphere that islands like Mykonos are renowned for. By cruising, you’ll be able to island-hop without having to think about any of those pesky details like flights or ferries. You’ll have a great time with your most compatible travel companions, Aries and Geminis.
Capricorns are responsible, a bit serious, and care deeply about their families. You are self-disciplined and have high expectations for others, which can occasionally come across as condescending. You’re a natural-born leader, and most likely to be planning a group or family vacation.
Capricorns need a crowd-pleasing vacation destination—like the Caribbean! A luxury voyage around the Caribbean offers something for everyone. There are plenty of adventurous shore excursions to choose from, or you can spend the day relaxing at the beach. There’s great shopping, great music, and great food in the Caribbean, too. What’s more, a Caribbean cruise offers hardworking Capricorns like you the much-needed opportunity to unplug and unwind. Your best travel companions are going to be people born under the Taurus and Cancer signs.
Known for being quiet, emotional, and intellectual, as an Aquarius you require a lot of mental stimulation during a vacation. You’re not one to lie around on a beach or spend too long in one destination. You can get bored easily and should look for cruises that take you to a new destination nearly every day.
A journey through Western Europe is perfect for an Aquarius! This region offers everything you need in a vacation—lots of museums, gorgeous cities to explore on foot or by bike, and fast-paced itineraries that call on cultured, trendy cities like Amsterdam and Antwerp. Leo and Sagittarius friends will make good travel buddies for an Aquarius.
As a Pisces, you’re the ultimate introvert. You’re gentle and compassionate, and have a deep appreciation of, and a talent for, art and music. You’re a dreamer, and look for an escape from reality when you travel. You love water and swimming, making tropical destinations a good fit for a Pisces.
A cruise to India and Sri Lanka is the ultimate getaway for a Pisces. The region offers tropical temperatures and secluded beaches, as well as inspiring cultural experiences that will connect with your empathetic nature as a Pisces. We bet you can picture yourself gliding down the tranquil backwaters of Alappuzha or taking in a traditional Kandyan dance performance in Colombo. A long voyage in the Indian Ocean allows for the quiet, contemplative days at sea that a Pisces needs. A Pisces makes for an excellent solo traveler, but you’ll also enjoy the company of Virgo or Taurus companions.
