American Cruise Ports

There are many American cruise ports -- dozens of choices for departing on your next cruise. Pick one and go. Have fun; explore the world; take a cruise.

Atlantic Ports

Cruises to Canada from Boston are great scenic voyages in the fall. Bermuda cruises are also popular out of Boston. Meanwhile, the Bahamas cruise from New York is an itinerary with departures all year. The Big Apple offers everything from Transatlantic cruises to Panama Canal cruises. Nearby cruises from NJ ouf of the Cape Liberty Cruise Port are active in the warm months. Also in the New York harbor are cruises from Brooklyn. The city has made room for the mega-ships there.

The Baltimore cruise port bustles with trips to Bermuda and the Caribbean year-round. Cruises out of Norfolk Virginia go to the Bahamas and Bermuda in the spring and fall. And cruise out of Charleston SC to go to the Caribbean and Bahamas.

Florida's Atlantic coast is chock full of cruise ports. Cruises from Port Canaveral are often combined with a theme park visit. It is the Disney port, close to Orlando. Port Everglades is the second busiest port, after Miami. Most of these cruises go to the Bahamas or the Caribbean, but there are transatlantic and Panama Canal cruises too.

Gulf Ports

Mexico cruises from Tampa go to exotic Cozumel and Costa Maya. Tampa is Florida's Gulf coast cruise port. The overnight Mississippi River cruises from New Orleans are unique. Cruise on a paddlewheel boat into the heartland of the south.

Pacific Ports

The Pacific coast has an active cruise industry. Cruises from Los Angeles to Mexico are frequent. They are short getaways. Hawaii cruises out of San Diego are long excursions and sometimes go deep into the South Pacific. On a completely different note, a cruise from San Francisco to Alaska is an adventure into the frozen north. Summer only of course. Cruises out of Honolulu are a great start for exploration of the Pacific islands.
