A cruise vacation is an exciting time to enjoy unique excursions in beautiful ports of call around the world. But depending on the itinerary, your arrival or departure port can be a destination worth exploring as well. Popular ports in Florida, Hawaii and New York offer their own activities, events and sights to check out.
Discover what you can do before or after your cruise at these ports of call along with a preview of just some of the places you can sail to with CruisesOnly.
Members can embark from several spots all over Florida—Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, Miami and Port Canaveral, near Orlando. Depart from Port Canaveral, and you can explore the must-see destination that is the Caribbean on the Three-Night Bahamas voyage, which sails on the new Mariner of the Seas and takes guests to Nassau and then to Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas.
You can enrich your trip with a pre- or post-cruise stay at Hilton Grand Vacations Club at SeaWorld, where you can check out these unique activities:
In Hawaii, Members depart from beautiful Honolulu. Canadian cruises abound at this picturesque port, and the 10-Night Hawaii Northbound voyage aboard the Celebrity Solstice brings Members to the vibrant city of Vancouver in British Columbia. On the way, Members can see Hawaii from a different angle with stops in Hilo, Kailua-Kona and Lahaina.
Before this journey, Members can stay at the Grand Waikikian by Hilton Grand Vacations Club in Honolulu. Located in the heart of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa complex, the 39-story tower is minutes away from Waikiki Beach and offers four swimming pools—among them, a 10,000-square-foot super pool—along with exercise facilities, kid-friendly activities and the Mandara Spa.
And while you’re in Waikiki:
In New York, Members can embark on a journey from three ports of call in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bayonne, New Jersey. While a wide variety of itineraries sail from the Big Apple, the city is also a popular departure point for Canadian cruises. For example, the Five-Night Canadian Atlantic Provinces Getaway brings passengers to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Saint John (Bay of Fundy), New Brunswick, aboard the Regal Princess.
If you extend your vacation with a stay at The Residences by Hilton Club, you’ll be right in the heart of midtown Manhattan overlooking Central Park. That means you’ll have plenty to do during your days on land:
