Massachusetts, United States
On cruises from Massachusetts, you'll have the opportunity to explore one of the United States' most historic destinations. Known mostly for its capital, the city of Boston, Massachusetts is a true New England destination. From lobsters to lighthouses, Massachusetts invites you to explore big city life and nature alike. Afterwards, these cruises often travel North to explore the Canadian East Coast, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and even the Great Lakes.
Other popular cruising destinations in Massachusetts include Martha's Vineyard and Provincetown. Martha's Vineyard provides a quaint feel amid classic East Coast cottages, delicious eateries, and unique local shops. The destination has been popularized over the years due to its classic feel, even appearing in the "Barefoot Contessa" television show as the home of celebrity chef Ina Garten.
On the other hand, Provincetown is a bastion for artists and creatives. The seaside city is known for being the place where the Mayflower first landed, and even features a monument to its arrival. Countless shipwrecks have occurred here over the centuries, causing many to believe that Provincetown may even be haunted.
