No matter where you are on your North America cruise you'll see iconic sights. In the United States you’ll find the atmospheric New York City with its bustling streets, yellow taxi cabs and marvellous towering skyscrapers, as well as Boston where you can stroll along the famous Freedom Trail to sixteen of the city’s must-see landmarks. Head further down the east coast and you’ll reach Miami – one of the world’s busiest cruise ports. With beautiful white sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters and exotic palm trees, you’ll feel more like you’re on a tropical island than in America.
On the southeast coast lies the lively city of New Orleans. On every corner you’ll find live musicians playing uplifting jazz and blues, as well as plenty of great markets offering locally produced jewellery, crafts and artwork. Meanwhile, over on the west coast lies the city of angels - Los Angeles - home to the stars and the famous Hollywood sign. Hike up into the hills and enjoy the stunning city views or stroll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame and see how many famous names you can spot. Head further up the Californian coast and you’ll reach San Francisco where the steep streets, quaint trams and huge Golden Gate Bridge will take your breath away.

North America Cruises Weather
Covering such a large amount of landmass, the weather in North America depends on where you're sailing.

However, in the south temperatures can soar, so make sure you pack plenty of suncream. If you choose to travel outside of the peak season, temperatures may be lower with more rainfall, especially the more north you go.
