RIVER AND SMALL SHIP CRUISES IN THE UNITED STATES
Cruising "Close to Home" has never been better!


Sign up for the INSIDE SCOOP eNewsletter

Our North America section — featuring "Close To Home" river and small ship cruising across North America, includes fabulous Alaska, the always delightful Caribbean and beguiling Central America.

To learn more about American Cruise Lines, American Queen Steamboat Company, or Blount Small Ship Adventures, click the cruise line name, or click on the video button in the left column to view exciting, short videos on these three renowned, premium cruise lines.

Small ship and U.S. river cruises are quickly emerging as one of the most in-demand cruise vacations in the world. If you're a bit tired of the big ocean cruises, and eager to enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere without the need for long overseas air flights, then "Close To Home" cruising may be the perfect vacation for you to explore.

Not only will you be with like-minded, similar-aged travelers, you'll also be in a very relaxed and casual atmosphere visiting interesting and historical places from Alaska's breathtaking Inside Passage to the crystaline aqua blue waters of Belize. 

Small ship cruising enables you to explore the quaint islands and villages of New England including 7-night cruises that travel only the coast of Maine. Or, why not enjoy a Grand New England cruise that traverses the coast from beautiful Providence all the way to the home of LL Bean – Portland Maine. Along the way you'll stop in Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Boothbay Harbor and picturesque Camden Maine as well. Can you spell Lobster dinner for less than $15?!

Also along the eastcoast is one of the lesser known trips, but one of our personal favorites, the Hudson River cruise which sails roundtrip from New York. Start your trip off with a few days in the Big Apple, then cruise through the beautiful Hudson Valley into the Catskills, Troy, Poughkeepsie and one of the most interesting and inspiring places you'll ever visit, West Point.

A U.S. river or small ship cruise can also take you along the Inland Waterway from Rhode Island all the way down the coast to Jacksonville Florida or one of the more unusual trips you'll ever see, from Chicago through the Great Lakes to the Erie Canal and finally into Warren Rhode Island, yes on a ship, not a bus...wow!

I guess what we are trying to say in a few words is that the realm of close-to-home cruising is more than just the mighty Mississippi and Columbia Rivers. It is a plethora of interesting, historic and scenic destinations waiting for you to experience them up close and personal on one of the enjoyable river ships or small boats.

Assuming you are like so many and not overly familiar with these destinations, we have a suggestion for you. Just scroll down to our CruisGENIE™ Cruise Locator below, and use it to "cruise" through the many river and small ship offerings. Then, when you see something that seems to appeal to you, click on the itinerary name and you'll be able to view the entire cruise trip itinerary.  It's easy and fun, so give it a try.

Once you have found one or two that truly appeal to your inner senses, give one of our River Cruise Experts a call to learn more.
