North America is the third largest continent in the world and offers a variety of landscapes, huge mountains, famous national parks, historic sites and exciting cities. On a North American cruise, you can experience many beautiful moments and explore interesting places. Accordingly, many cruise lines (such as Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean) offer cruises in North America. For example, you can, choose a cruise on the East Coast, with highlights like New York or the sunshine in Miami. Equally popular is the West Coast of the United States with San Francisco or Los Angeles. Other possible destinations on a North American cruise include the enchanting Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas and parts of the Caribbean.
Depending on the season, North America has different faces. North America Cruises are possible all year round thanks to the different climate zones. The most popular are cruises from New York to other destinations or from other destinations to New York. You can take a flight to New York or use the transatlantic cruise. From Miami you can look forward to Caribbean flair on the way to Nassau (Bahamas). Canada offers with Vancouver, Quebec or Montreal and Nova Scotia, not only beautiful cities but also stunning natural landscapes. A very special experience is a trip to Alaska, which is often combined with a cruise to the West coast of the USA.
Depending on the destination, North America cruises are usually possible all-round the year. Thus, it is unsurprising that shipping companies also offer year-round cruises. However, European shipping companies do not offer monthly trips to all destination in North America. For example, AIDA Cruises only services the ports of the East Coast from August to November. Particularly popular here are the tours from New York to Montreal, where you can marvel at the incomparable foliage of Indian Summers.
City tours, sightseeing of major attractions, a relaxing day on the beach or visiting impressive national parks – such shore excursions can be undertaken on a North American cruise.
You will need a valid passport for all the ports served on your North America cruise. This must be valid for at least 6 months upon arrival or from entry into the respective country. To enter the US, you will also need a valid ESTA application. This costs $ 14 and must be requested in advance. You do not need a visa for Canada and ports in the Caribbean.
