Sail away on a Florida cruise holiday…
With 1,000 km of sun-drenched beaches, white-knuckle rides in some of the world’s most famous theme parks, and countless other attractions, Florida has a huge amount to offer any visitor all year round.
There’s the Everglades National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its swamp land and activities from fishing to boating – the park shows a different side of the Sunshine State.
The cuisine is also fascinating, with multiple international influences (including Spanish, African, Cuban, Caribbean and South American) to be found in dishes here, and some of the country’s best seafood.
You’ll also find vibrant nightlife, as well as southern charm, thriving coastal towns, laid-back Fort Lauderdale and the super-cool city of Miami – all under that dazzling sun!
Florida is easy and affordable to get to from just about every part of the UK, and when you arrive, what better way to experience the state than by taking a cruise?
There are so many ways to enjoy a Florida cruise holiday: set sail from a port in the US or fly in, or combine a stay on dry land with a cruise around this bewitching part of the world, including the magical Caribbean. While you’re on-board, you can take in many different destinations but you’ll only have to unpack once.
Choose a cruise and stay holiday and combine being at sea with lots of on-shore time, with the option to explore a destination before or after your cruise. For a Florida trip, this could include some days in Orlando to hit the beaches, theme parks or attractions like the Kennedy Space Center. With a Florida cruise holiday, you can combine the energy and buzz of the theme parks’ roller coasters with time spent relaxing on a sunbed or bronzing yourself on a gorgeous Caribbean beach while sampling a cocktail.
Royal Caribbean offer cruises taking in Bermuda, the Bahamas, New Jersey and Florida. Set sail from Miami and take in the city’s Art Deco District at South Beach, as well as Calle Ocho, Little Havana, and the elegant districts of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. Norwegian Cruise Lines has cruises sailing from Miami that take in St Maarten and the eastern Caribbean, and they offer other trips to the southern and western Caribbean, all of varying lengths. Meanwhile, Carnival Cruises has plenty of options from both Tampa and Port Canaveral.
