Cruises to Nowhere
Cruises to Nowhere are generally very short cruises because they are offered as fillers between longer itineraries and repositioning cruises. It's also increasingly common for the cruise lines to debut their newest vessels to public this way.
Cruise to Nowhere Highlights
During a Cruise to Nowhere, the ship is the destination. Spend time enjoying these floating resorts, whether by reading poolside, dancing the night away, trying your luck on the slot machines, or enjoying live shows featuring comedy, music and more. Indulge in the ship's fine dining and celebrate a special occasion at sea - birthdays, anniversaries, or just a few days to relax. With no distractions and no place to be, the choice is yours!
Popular Cruise to Nowhere Departure Ports
As of 2016, Cruises to Nowhere no longer depart from U.S. ports. However, there are sailings from Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia, Norway and Iceland. Cruises to Nowhere are perfect for first-time cruises who want to test the waters, as well as for those looking to retreat for a couple nights during a busy vacation or on a weekend getaway.
When is the Best Time to Go on a Cruise to Nowhere?
With no real schedule, Cruises to Nowhere pop up somewhat sporadically, and sell out fast. They are often offered around the time of a new ship unveiling, or between gaps in a usual schedule. Keep an eye out online, or call a Cruise Specialist to see if any Cruises to Nowhere are coming up. Typically just one or two nights, these mini-vacations can be squeezed in to an otherwise uneventful weekend or tacked on to a planned getaway on land.
