Substitute another fruit preserve for the cranberry. Cherry, blueberry, apricot, etc.

Youngberry, mixed berry or apricot work well. Just thin the jam out with a touch of hot water if it's too thick.

Orange sauce is traditional with duck, i.e. Duck a l'Orange. You can Google thousands of orange sauce version for duck, but they all are basically orange juice, chicken stock, orange marmalade and corn starch to thicken.
If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

If you are roasting an entire duck, you could do the Scandinavian thing and stuff it with prunes and tart apples...don't prick the skin, and roast about 45 minutes/# at 325. Remove excess fat from roasting pan. Make a gravy with the drippings and giblets...if you can't get cranberries, I imagine you can't get lingonberry sauce/jelly either...

Blackberry, cherry, or orange sauce.

One of the classic Chinese sauces for duck is plum sauce. I have a plum chipotle that I like.

well, then why do the chinese have duck sauce?

i had duck with a pomegranate chipotle sauce recently that was very good.

my sister loves saucy susan (an apricot sauce) with red pepper flakes added. sort of a thai style sweet chili sauce.

Blackberry jam and Cabernet reduction that includes the pan drippings. I use it with lamb tenderloin but it would kill with duck too.
