North America

The versatility of destinations along the East coast are key with incredible autumn scenery and towering cities all available in close proximity the further north you go.  Itineraries depart from either New York or New Jersey. While in the south, relaxing on the beach and exploring the wild wetlands of the Everglades can be undertaken from the ports of Miami or Fort Lauderdale. The East Coast is the ultimate destination for the transatlantic crossings, one of the most iconic cruise itineraries in the world.  This itinerary is still now only regularly undertaken by Cunard’s Queen Mary 2. 

While San Francisco and Los Angeles are well documented holiday destinations, the ports further north such as Seattle and Portland and San Diego in the south should not be discounted.    The west coast is also the gateway to destinations like Alaska and Hawaii and a stopover for world cruises.

Canada has major ports on both sides of the country, the west coast is more prominent as a start point for many cruises and is also a gateway to Alaska.  You can explore Canada’s maritime provinces including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland before immersing yourself in French Canada with stops in Quebec Cities and countryside.  There are a number of different options when cruising in Canada, all of which provide completely different types of cruises depending on your preference.  You can combine it with a transatlantic voyage or stay in one of the brilliant cities in Canada pre or post cruise.  Whale watching, white water rafting and exploring the national parks are all on the to do list when visiting Canada.

There are, however, some exceptions: in the West Coast on the Pacific Ocean, the climate is cool and damp in the north and Mediterranean in the south; in the coast of the Gulf of Mexico the climate is mild in winter and hot and muggy in summer, while in Florida it is almost tropical. Canada’s climate varies wildly based on geography, from perma-frost in the north to four distinct seasons towards the equator. In this region the temperature can climb up to 35 °C in the summer and descend to a chilly -25 °C during winter.
