Further north, it’s easy to forget about the USA’s ’last frontier’, Alaska, which takes up residence at the edge of the western world. However, many cruise ships of today make the voyage there a reality. Here, everyday life grinds to a blissful halt, with the locals consisting mainly of whales, bears, and eagles.
It is all a far cry from that illuminated show-stopper, Times Square in New York, and USA’s glitzy wild-child, Las Vegas. Cool California and art-deco-inspired Miami also know how to let their hair down. Their alluring shores are tickled by both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans; idyllic for surfing or just catching some well-earned rays during your next North America cruise.
Most say the Deep South is where America’s beating heart truly dwells, exemplified by the likes of New Orleans, whose sumptuous soul food, jazzy rhythm and eclectic panache hit a home run every time.
Whether it’s feeling the crunch of resplendent fall foliage underfoot in Canada or the spray from Niagara’s thunderous Falls; walking among the stars in Tinseltown or being truly at one with nature whilst exploring the multitude of national parks, you will discover on your cruise to North America that this region truly is the real McCoy.
