USA - Southeast Cruises Travel Tips

  • The USA Southeast is known for being friendly, so don't be afraid to approach the locals! You might even find a total stranger starting a full conversation with you or natives smiling as they pass by.
  • The Southeast tends to be a religious place, meaning attractions may open late or not at all on Sundays since many locals attend church.
  • Several cities throughout the Southeast pride themselves on their barbecue, but you'll find that every city prepares it their own way. Try it in a few different places to see what you like best!
  • If you want a soda to drink, be specific to the brand. Southerners consider all different kinds of soda to be "Coke," so if you want that particular drink, you'll have to specify with "Coca-Cola."
  • Manners go a long way in the South, especially when addressing your elders. Don't forget to use "please," "thank you," "ma'am," and "sir."
  • If you visit during the summer, expect intense heat combined with high humidity. Come prepared and don't let yourself get dehydrated. 
  • Pack lightweight, breathable clothing, a hat, and sunglasses for sunny days, along with a couple of warmer layers for cooler evenings.
  • Whether you're exploring bustling cities or quaint towns, comfortable walking shoes are a must.

USA - Southeast Cruise Packages

Quick Facts

The USA Southeast is a popular cruise destination all year long. However, if you can avoid the peak summer months, try to do so. During the summer months, the heat can get uncomfortable for most, but it's still a popular time to visit, so crowds are abundant. You'll still enjoy yourself in the summer, but the spring and fall are preferable.

  • Getting There

    The Southeast USA, stretching from the coasts of the Carolinas to the Gulf of Mexico, is a region that's as accessible as it is beautiful. Major cruise lines set sail from several key ports in the area, with cities like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Port Canaveral in Florida at the forefront. These ports are well-connected to nearby airports, making your transition from air to sea travel as smooth as possible.  

    What's notable is how these cruise routes often include a mix of both high-energy cities and tranquil seaside towns, providing a balanced experience. The infrastructure supporting these cruises is top-notch, with ports equipped to handle large ships and offering streamlined services for embarkation and disembarkation. Essentially, all you need is your sense of adventure, and the cruise lines handle the rest, turning your journey into a hassle-free experience.

  • The Perfect Time for a Southeast USA Cruise

    Cruising in the Southeast USA is an experience that blends beautiful coastal scenery with unique cultural highlights, and choosing the right time for your cruise can significantly enhance your vacation. The subtropical climate of this region presents different cruising experiences throughout the year.  

    Spring (March to May): Cruising in these months is ideal in the Southeast USA. The weather is pleasantly warm, typically ranging from 70 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, perfect for cruisers who enjoy exploring the outdoors without the intense heat of summer. Nature is in full bloom during this period, especially in coastal areas like South Carolina and Georgia, adding a vibrant backdrop to your scenic cruising adventures.  

    Summer (June to August): Cruisers should expect hot temperatures, often climbing into the 90s. While the warm weather is great for beach activities, cruising during this time also coincides with the peak hurricane season, particularly in August and September. Additionally, summer is a popular time for cruising, so be prepared for busy ports and a more crowded experience.  

    Fall (September to November): Early fall cruising still carries hurricane risks, making it a quieter period with potential for cheaper cruise deals. As you move into October, the weather cools, the hurricane risks subside, and the region's gorgeous fall foliage begins to emerge, especially along the Carolinas' coast, offering a stunning view for cruisers.  

    Winter (December to February): Cruising during these months offers mild and less humid conditions, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. It's a serene time for cruising in the Southeast USA, away from the summer crowds, perfect for exploring the Gulf Coast's beauty or historical cities like Charleston in a more relaxed atmosphere.  

    Overall, for cruisers seeking good weather and fewer crowds, the shoulder seasons of late spring or early fall are ideal. These times provide a fantastic balance of pleasant climate, thinner crowds, and the natural beauty of the changing seasons, making for a delightful Southeast USA cruising experience.  

  • Experience the Flavors of Southeast USA

    Get ready, food lovers: a cruise to the Southeast USA is your ticket to a paradise of flavor, offering you the chance to dive into the region's rich culinary traditions.  

    This area is renowned for comfort foods and hearty flavors. Imagine biting into a piece of tender fried chicken, its crispy skin breaking into succulent, flavorful meat - a staple dish you can't afford to skip. Then there's the world-famous Southern barbecue, slow-cooked to perfection, practically melting off the bone, offered in various styles across the region.  

    Seafood enthusiasts will rejoice on the coast, where fresh catches contribute to dishes like savory gumbo or shrimp and grits. Pair these with a side of collard greens, a regional favorite, or finish your meal with a slice of sweet pecan pie.  

    As for where to enjoy these delicacies, keep an eye out for local diners or family-run establishments on your port stops; these hidden gems often serve the best authentic meals. Also, consider food festivals on your travel itinerary - they're a fantastic way to sample a range of dishes and immerse yourself in the local food scene. Your taste buds are in for a treat on this culinary journey!

  • Immerse Yourself in Southeast USA Culture

    A journey through the Southeast USA on a cruise is more than just a visual delight; it's a deep dive into a cultural scene brimming with history, music, art, and festivals.  

    You can't talk about the Southeast without mentioning its pivotal role in the history of music. Cities like Nashville, Memphis, and New Orleans are the birthplace of country, blues, and jazz. Street performances, live music bars, and record stores are cultural staples here, offering a real-time journey through America's musical past and present.  

    When it comes to festivities, the region shines. Be it the vibrant Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans, music festivals in Tennessee, or historical reenactments in Virginia, each event is a celebration of the area's rich heritage and lively spirit.  

    Also notable is the warm Southern hospitality. Locals are known for their polite mannerisms, often paired with a laid-back attitude, reflecting the region's emphasis on community and tradition. This cultural immersion will undoubtedly add richness to your travel stories!
