People visiting or living in America are able to a cruise to foreign ports in Europe, to the Caribbean, to Alaska, or to the Mexican Riviera on the Pacific coast. There is also the possibility of short one or two day cruises in and out of the same American port such as New York City or even into some of America’s great rivers. Some examples of America Cruises are:

Alaskan Cruises

Six of the major cruise lines offer regular cruises to Alaska from Puget Sound in Seattle, Washington. These offer the chance of a lifetime to witness some of the most beautiful spots in America, if not the world. Alaskan ports include places like Juneau, Ketchikan, and Glacier Bay National Park.

The Mexican Riviera

Round trip cruises departing from San Diego and Los Angeles, California travel to the beautiful Pacific Coast of Mexico and places like Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. These cruises are an ideal way to experience both the beauty of the beaches and the mountains that lie along the coast.

Caribbean Cruises

Ports in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando, Florida offer a huge variety of cruises to both the Western and Eastern Caribbean, and especially to the Bahamas. You can also cruise the Caribbean from Texas and Louisiana. Boston offers many cruises to places like Bermuda, which happens to be a favorite vacation for people who live in New England.

Cruises to New England and Canada

Boston is another ideal spot for beginning a cruise that includes ports in Canada like Halifax and Sydney in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Quebec City, and Montreal. These cruises often take in places in New England like Bar Harbor, Maine as well.

Small Ship Cruising in America

Another style of America cruises are aboard smaller cruise ships that sail in and among America’s inland waterways of the Pacific Northwest, Main, the islands of New England, and the Chesapeake Bay. These smaller cruises can even sail into the Hudson River, the Mississippi River and the Columbia River. Some examples of smaller cruises in America are:

· New England’s islands and seaports – This cruise sets sail from Providence, Rhode Island into Narragansett Bay. Stops include places like New Bedford, Massachusetts, the Whaling City, and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard.

· Chesapeake Bay – These cruises depart from Baltimore, Maryland and give you a taste of the history and culture of this part of the country. You’ll have access to scenic small ports that the large cruise ships can’t get to and see lighthouses and small seaside villages. A cruise like this even includes a visit to historic Williamsburg and quaint islands.
