Cruising America: These Destinations Will Make You Hungry for Travel


Going on cruise is a fantastic way to see the world; though you’re traveling, you’re staying in the lap of luxury on board some of the most amazingly kitted-out moving hotels.

If you want to get the most you possibly can out of your vacation time in the US, a cruise is the way to go – but what are the best cruises around America? Well, you’re about to find out.

Central America

Cruises around Central America are some of the most interesting for those who want to get a taste of different cultures and great sense of history.

Cruising at this part of the globe means you can take onshore excursions around lush rainforests, as well as visit pristine beaches, sample delicious food, and delight in the offerings of each of these diverse and beautiful countries:

    • Belize
      The barrier reef in Belize is second only to Australia’s, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    • Guatemala
      See Mayan ruins with your own eyes.
    • Honduras
      La Tigra National park is a feast for the eyes as well as a great place for outdoor activities.
    • Nicaragua
      Visit some of the most impressive volcanic landscapes in Central America.
    • Costa Rica
      Get a chance to see endangered wild sea turtles and visit the volcanic hot springs.
    • Panama
      See the Panama Canal and the bridge that connects the Americas.



The Caribbean is so rich with diversity in all its thousands of islands. From the biggest Caribbean islands like Jamaica and Cuba, to the smallest, like Monserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis, you’ll see a huge diversity of landscape, language, history and culture.

Of course, you can’t see each of the thousands of islands in one trip; find the nations that really interest you and pick your cruise. If you’re having trouble choosing, check out somewhere like Iglu Cruise for the best deals around the Caribbean, and you’ll get to see it all whilst aboard the impressive Allure of the Seas cruise ship.

Most cruises run either Western or Eastern Caribbean routes. In the West, you’ll often find cruises running from Florida to Haiti, Jamaica, and even Mexico. These cruises tend to be more budget friendly with fewer stops on the way.

Over on the East side, you’ll get to visit the smaller islands of St. Maarten, The Bahamas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Kitts, and St. Thomas. An Eastern Caribbean cruise is great for first timers as you get to see so much.

If these tantalizing details weren’t enough to awaken a new-found wanderlust in you, then check out the destinations in more detail to really get you hungry for new experiences.

    Beautiful photographs! I already have the travel bug and seriously want to go and sit on a beach somewhere, dipping my toes into the sea and sand!

    Lovely images!

    Haven’t taken a cruise before however something I would think about doing to see so many places easily.

    I never have, but my aunt and uncle were big cruise people. They’d do several a year. I couldn’t imagine because I can only do a boat for a day, and then I feel claustrophobic no matter how big the boat is.
    We’re going to Alaska next month, though!

      Oh Alaska will be AMAZING! Plus I just can’t wait to see the photographs you come back with–especially the moose!;-)
