Maine Cruise Highlights

Dining on Fresh Seafood

One of Maine’s claims to fame is the fresh seafood that comes from its rich coastal waters. You’ll find a variety of fish dishes, but it’s Maine’s oysters and lobster that are some of the most sought-after in the world. Try a traditional lobster roll, or feast on claws drenched in melted butter. Visit an oyster farm to learn how to shuck your own, and sample these briny, buttery treats.

Fall Foliage

One of the best things to see in Maine only happens once a year: fall foliage season. Like the rest of the northeast, the colors of the trees in the autumn months change into a spectacular array of scarlet, orange, gold, and ochre. See the best of nature’s display, whether you’re joining a guided tour, or exploring independently on foot—or on two wheels.


Maine is home to more than 60 historic lighthouses along its coast. Some of these lovely lighthouses can be toured today, with a chance to explore the keeper’s quarters and learn about the role these beacons played, and still do. A solitary lighthouse on the rocky shore under Maine’s vast skies makes for a fantastic photo opportunity.

Featured Maine Cruise Ports


Pretty Portland has been a busy fishing port for more than 400 years. Wander the cobblestone lanes in the atmospheric downtown area. Once home to canneries and textile mills, today you’ll find a cluster of artisan coffee shops and tempting bakeries. Take in spectacular coastal views as you cycle the Eastern Promenade Trail, or take a day trip to the quaint little coastal town of Kennebunkport. If you’re captivated by Maine’s lonely lighthouses, join a tour to visit three of the most striking.


Artsy Rockland lies on a protected harbor surrounded by ruggedly beautiful scenery, from rocky coves to long beaches and dense woodland. In town, explore the Farnsworth Art Museum, celebrating local artists, and stroll the Rockland Harbor Trail on the lookout for seals and seabirds. Lobster lovers can join a tour on a local fishing boat to learn about age-old fishing techniques and modern sustainable practices. You’ll find lobster to eat everywhere, too, from high-end restaurants to food trucks.
