This cruise is designed to showcase the diversity and vibrancy of the United States and its neighbouring regions, offering you a perfect blend of urban excitement, historical charm, and tropical paradise.

Departing from sunny Port Canaveral, Florida, our first stop is the idyllic city of Charleston, South Carolina.

Whether you’re drawn to lush forests, vibrant cities, or tropical islands, these itineraries offer a little bit of everything, promising a cruise you won’t soon forget.

Departing from Port Canaveral in Florida, the gleaming city of Miami is an important common stop across all itineraries.

Miami is a city where modernity meets tradition, where the pulse of city life is softened by the gentle sway of palm trees. You’ll marvel at the Art Deco buildings, enjoy the beautiful beaches and sample the rich culinary scene during your full day in port.

A trip to Amber Cove, nestled in the lush Dominican Republic, is also included in each cruise. Here, your adventure takes you deep into the verdant forest, where the emerald canopy overhead hums with the vibrant pulse of nature. 

The Sunshine States and Sands itineraries also visits the stunning shores of Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos Islands. With its pristine beaches and azure waters, this island paradise is sure to charm you.

The two two iterations of Floridian Favourites have slightly different routes which offer a blend of art, adventure, and relaxation, ensuring you enjoy the best of the Floridian and Bahamian coasts.

Both itineraries include two days in the dynamic city of Tampa, Florida. Here, you’ll be immersed in the city’s vibrant culture, with plenty of time to explore Tampa’s renowned art museums. Discover world-class exhibitions showcasing pieces from local and international artists, providing a feast for the eyes and the soul.

Finally, both itineraries lead you to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where you can partake in thrilling airboat rides in the Everglades. This unique experience offers close encounters with Florida’s wildlife and a deeper appreciation for its unique ecosystem.
