The Best Cruises From NYC to Bermuda, Iceland, Disney's Private Island, Rome, & More

Picture it: trading in the subway for a luxurious cruise, losing the skyscrapers for the rippling expanse of the ocean.

New York City may be a favorite travel destination for many, but it’s also a great jumping off point for vacations both big and small. And while the Big Apple has several airports and train stations, there’s also a thriving cruise industry with major ports in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan and Brooklyn’s Red Hook.

Cruise companies like Norwegian, Crystal, Cunard, and Holland America all call the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal or Manhattan Cruise Terminal home. And with 1,000-foot-long berths in Manhattan and 182,000 square feet of space in Brooklyn, a trip to the Caribbean or even Europe is only a subway ride away (plus some time being pampered on the luxurious cruise ships themselves).

So go ahead, spend some time surveying the all-you-can-eat buffet as you head off for a busy week of lounging on a beach chair in the Bahamas (or explore the rich historical past of Nassau), taste your way through the simple seafood dishes on the fishhook-shaped island of Bermuda, or watch the sea spray blow from a plush armchair as you speed north toward the charming New England cape.
