  What's All The Buzz About?


*Please note: The price and availability on Cruise Direct Online may be different then shown on the cruise line's official booking site. The cruise line's update their databases daily as prices go up or down based on how the inventory of cabins of a particular departure is selling.  They then, transmit the information to our search engines. Our goal is to show the most accurate prices; however, in rare cases we receive inaccurate information from the cruise lines, or delays in updating price and availability. Where the price or availability is different, the cruise line's quoted price and cabin availability at the actual time of booking will prevail.

Whether it's a stop at historic Saint John's, Canada's oldest incorporated city; a visit to famed Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts; a call at Baltimore's bustling harbor; or a day baking in the hospitality of beautiful Charleston, South Carolina - a rich variety of wonderful experiences await "close-to-home" vacationers on a cruise along the eastern coast of the U.S. and Canada.

Cruises ranging from two-night getaways to12-night voyages sail the coastal waters of North America and into Canada along the St. Lawrence Seaway. Choices in embarkation ports that include Montreal, New York, Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, Norfolk (Virginia), Charleston (South Carolina) and other cities have helped to make these itineraries a popular choice for drive-and-sail cruises and as part of a land and sea vacation.

The ships sailing east coast cruises rival the ports of call for diversity. Cruise vacationers can choose to take their Canada/New England/U.S. Coastal cruise on ships ranging from intimate vessels carrying fewer than 50 passengers to spectacular resorts at sea.

Typically the Canada/New England cruise season runs from May through October, with fall foliage highlighting the later sailings, and more southern coastal sailings run through the winter. Value hunters will find the best deals on early spring departures.

Ports of Call

Newport -

Charming mom-and-pop shops and restaurants line the streets just steps from the cruise pier of this waterfront town located on Narragansett Bay. A beach community where icons such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and William K. Vanderbilt once lived, Newport is rich in history and famous for its ocean view mansions.

Mansion Tours -

The great mansions of Newport can be explored during a cliff walk, a stroll around town, or via bus tour down Bellevue Avenue. Some of the stops along the way may include The Breakers, Marble House, The Elms, and Rosecliff.

History and Scenery -

Visitors can enjoy Newport's history and scenic beauty on a walking tour around the city or a motor coach excursion down the 10-mile long Ocean Drive. Sights to see and break at along the way include Federal, Colonial and Victorian homes, the Gothic Church of St. Mary's (where JFK and Jacqueline married), Redwood Library, Tourno Synagogue, Newport Art Museum, the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and Salve Regina University.

Shopping Options -

Along with parks and million-dollar yachts, visitors can find art galleries, souvenir shops, boutiques, restaurants, name-brand clothing stores and outdoor kiosks along Newport's wharf area and Thames Street.

Boston -

One of the nation's oldest and most historic cities, Boston also ranks among the premier attractions on Canada/New England cruise itineraries. Fascinating historical sites and cultural landmarks, a wealth of top museums and trendy shopping and entertainment areas make Boston a great place to visit for anyone.

Freedom Trail -

A walking tour of Boston can take visitors back to the revolutionary roots of America. Points of interest and story telling on this guided tour include the Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, the Old Corner Book Store, America's first public school, and Faneuil Hall.

Lexington, Concord and Harvard Yard -

Marblehead and Salem -

These two famous coastal communities provide a link to Boston's maritime and Puritan legacies. Visitors to Marblehead will discover its rich nautical heritage, cobblestone streets, Federal and Georgian homes and 19th century mansions. Best known for its 17th century witchcraft hysteria and trials, Salem is home to the Salem Witch Museum where guests will be entertained with stories of Pagans, Wiccans, midwives and healers. A scenic drive down Chestnut Street, often referred to as the "most beautiful street in America," also is a highlight.

How to Book
Cruise Direct Online is a Cruise & Cruise Tour Specialist. Our cruise and cruisetour price comparison site offers extensive search capabilities for Cruises. The prices shown come from the cruise line's own database. However, the cruise line's price is not necessary the best price available. This means that while cruise travelers decide on Cruises Direct Online which cruise or cruise tour is best for them, the booking process itself is best completed by speaking with one of our Certified Cruise Vacation Experts via phone. As not all promotional offers are shown online, to get your best price and see if you qualify for special rates and bonus offers you need to call us at 800.365.1445. We will be able to answers all your questions, give you all the help, guidance and advice you want, review your options, go over the offers shown on Cruises Direct Online, and book the cruise of your choice, subject to price and availability at the actual time of booking.
