These are, in fact, places linked mainly by the sea, and much of their history, commerce and traditions have their origins there.

It's easy to find reasons why more people take cruises to the Caribbean than anywhere else in the world. A warm climate; an astounding array of ports of call, each with its own distinctive character and appeal; thousands of beaches, including some of the world's best; great shopping at duty free prices; and incredibly clear seas teeming with marine life make this part of the world a perfect cruise vacation destination. There's much more to this region stretching from South Florida to South America than sun, sand and surf. No other destination presents so many choices of cruise itineraries and lengths, with anything from a two-night getaway to an extended voyage sailing from ports from New York to Central America.
Top Hawaii Cruises
They say it all happened when volcanoes rose from the sea. Soon, trade winds scattered the seeds that grew into incredible flowers, bamboo and fragrant papaya. Today, come to Hawaii for the unexplainable, the utterly magical, and find bright anthuriums growing wild, volcanic peaks soaring to 14,000 feet and vibrant poinsettias when it isn't even the holidays. For all their similarity, each island has its own distinct personality. Like Hawaii, the big island, with Kilauea's crater where some say Pele, the fire goddess, lives. Maui, with remote swimming spots so beautiful, they were once reserved solely for Hawaiian royalty. And Honolulu, where the cliffs and waterfalls are often visited by spectacular rainbows.

In the Bahamas, the air and land are filled with hundreds of unique species of birds, animals and plant life. Shipwrecks lay patiently, waiting for you to plumb their depths.

Some things have changed over the last five hundred years. But standing on the deck of your ship, approaching this place, you'll have no idea what they are.
Escape a world of routine, regimen, and restrictions to enter a carefree, graceful universe where everything seems to exist for you alone. Everywhere, a sense of style and elegance pervades. Grand bouquets, priceless antiques, and original artwork adorn each room. So extraordinarily memorable is the cuisine aboard Holland America ships that the entire fleet has been inducted into the prestigious Confrerie de la Chaine des Rotisseurs, a gourmet society founded in Paris and devoted to promoting the pleasures of the table. Explore over 250 ports aboard the five-star fleet and enjoy a uniquely gracious onboard ambience. Such is the world of Holland America's "Tradition of Excellence."

Breathtaking scenery, gleaming glaciers, abundant wildlife, and Native American culture are only a few of the spectacular attractions that draw cruise vacationers to Alaska. With so much to see and do in Alaska, it's no wonder the state's official flower is the alpine forget-me-not! Ships that visit Alaska on a seven-day itinerary typically sail along the Inside Passage and visit Glacier Bay National Park or Hubbard Glacier, stopping at four ports along the way. Most cruise lines also offer a variety of extended cruise-tour package options which take passengers deeper into Alaska via train and include land stays at lodges and sightseeing in Denali National Park - making their trip to Alaska even more comprehensive.
