Cruising from Southern Cruise Ports

Looking for the best cruise deals from ports in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral, New Orleans and more? Departing from Florida is the best option for travelers who want to explore magnificent cities, such as Miami, the “Cruise Capital of the World,” before they set sail. Each year, this busy port ships millions of vacationers to tropical wonderlands like the Caribbean and Bahamas on esteemed cruise lines like Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian.

If you want a unique spin on traditional travel, seek out voyages from Fort Lauderdale, where many of the world’s largest ships depart. For example, Royal Caribbean Cruises’ Harmony of the Seas is a stunning ship that mainly sails to the Caribbean but also visits Europe and the Mediterranean. The largest cruise ship in the world has seven neighborhoods and amenities like virtual balconies, kid-friendly parks, a Starbucks café, and an ocean-side theater; not to mention Broadway shows like “Cats” and “Mamma Mia!”

Alongside the massive crew and staff, you’ll find robots at the Bionic Bar, where the automatons can mix and serve your cocktail of choice. If you ever wanted to see the future of cruise ship travel, Harmony of the Seas is for you.

Of course, sailing aboard the largest, most advanced cruise ship in the world is not the only way to make your vacation unique. You could also work in some of Florida’s other attractions, such as Orlando’s top theme parks, before you embark on a cruise from nearby Port Canaveral. We keep things affordable, so you won’t spend all of your money on one vacation. We believe once-in-a-lifetime experiences should happen more than once in a lifetime.

Southern cruise ports also include ports in New Orleans and Galveston, Texas, near Houston. If you'd like to cruise the western Caribbean to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands or sunny Mexico, pick a cruise from New Orleans and enjoy a day or two of jazz and Cajun food in the port city before you depart. Texans can cruise to the Caribbean, Mexico or Panama from the cruise port in Galveston. Once in a while, cruises are offered to Europe from this port, sailing across the Caribbean and the Atlantic en route.

If you’re ready to pack your bags, some of the best cruises from the south can be booked last-minute. With cancellations and unexpected vacancies to make up for, cruise lines offer deals on last-minute cruises to fill the empty cabins on their ships. Search with us, and we’ll connect you to the getaway of a lifetime.
