3. The Philippines
There are many different ports in the Philippines and plenty of cruise lines make stops around various islands of the archipelago. Manila is the main port, and you’d best watch your back in that frenzied city. It’s a major center for methamphetamine production and trafficking, and crime is rampant. There has been a wave of kidnappings and violence against visitors in the southern Sulu Sea islands, but most cruise lines don’t go there. Best to remain vigilant wherever you roam in this country, though.
