THE CRUISE EXPERIENCE
In recent years, Maine's popularity has skyrocketed among tourists from all over the globe. The warm summer months, long days and picturesque coastal setting makes this New England state an ideal destination for people and families of all ages. Cruising the coastal and intercoastal waterways aboard one of the many ferry/cruise vessels is one of the best ways to take in Maine’s unique character.
Cruise schedules for Southern (Portland), Midcoast (Rockland) and Downeast Maine (Bar Harbor) are provided below. To book tickets please visit the vessel's individual websites.
In addition to the many seasonal cruise ships that visit the Maine coast, ferryboats service the needs of year-round residents and visitors by providing a necessary mode of transportation between islands and the mainland. Ferries offer reliable and inexpensive access to a host of beautiful islands, usher commuters to and from their places of work and deliver valuable freight across intercoastal waters.
