Exactly where is Nowhere? Well, as defined by the cruise industry, a cruise to Nowhere is one that spends its entire time at sea and doesn't make any ports of call.

It's also increasingly common for the cruise lines to debut their newest vessels to public this way.
With this in mind, it's easy to find a cruise to Nowhere leaving from a port city close to where you live. The fun of taking one of these cruises is that not only are they convenient, but at a price unbeatable on land. So it's the best way for first-timers to try out the cruise experience without spending a lot of time, money or the investment in air travel.
In addition, it's a great excuse to get all your friends and family together for a celebration or a reunion, a party or even a corporate event. Impress your spouse for a special occasion or even propose marriage. Cruises to Nowhere make the perfect romantic surprise.
