Cruises in the USA

Cruising in the United States offers a unique way to experience this diverse country. In New England, options take you along the rugged coastline and into the Canadian Maritimes, visiting historic towns and cities along the way. In the Pacific Northwest, you sail past towering redwoods and goldrush era ports. Visiting Alaska by boat allows you explore the glacier ringed fjords and other spectacular regions that are inaccessible by road. Taking a paddle-wheeled steamer up the mighty Mississippi is not only idyllic but allows you to immerse yourself in the birthplace of jazz, blues, and rock and roll.

Cruise durations are varied and all vessels have specialist guides and managers on board.
