For thousands of years, bridges have connected people to places around the world. But beyond serving this very specific function, bridges have also become architectural landmarks that attract thousands -- sometimes millions -- of tourists each year; from San Francisco and Sydney to New York City and London.
Lucky for cruisers, there are several bridges your cruise ship can sail under, giving passengers a unique vantage point (and photo opportunity!) of some of the world's most iconic bridges.
