4 Reasons to Cruise Through Fall Foliage

Ready for leaf-peeping? Cruise through dazzling fall colors by the sea this season!


There’s still time to view (and get that perfect Instagram) of beautiful fall foliage! Consider taking a cruise to immerse yourself in the vibrant hues of burgundy, crimson and gold.

Not only do cruises offer a unique view of fall foliage, but travelers can enjoy cruise amenities, activities and experiences at various port destinations. Fall foliage sailings can be as short as five nights or as long as almost two weeks (or even longer!), and are available throughout peak leaf-peeping season.

Feeling inspired? We’ve teamed up with Cruise Critic to break down why your leaf-peeping adventure should be on a cruise, along with tips for finding the right price with TripAdvisor Cruises.

Why Take a Fall Foliage Cruise?

Sailings are timed to coincide perfectly with the changing seasons and bring you right into the heart of each amazing city or town.

  1. Explore the charm and history of port cities

Fall cruises allow you to explore all that the charming port cities have to offer – from fall-themed décor, to farmers’ markets overflowing with flavors of the season. Book Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas to explore Boston’s historic Freedom Trail or the Oceania Riviera to experience Newport’s elegant Breakers Mansion.

  1. Engage in unique fall experiences

While fall foliage cruises are ideal for leaf peeping, cruise lines come with endless activities and excursions, on and off shore! Use TripAdvisor to immerse yourself in the region with plenty of shore excursion options – from a hike in Acadia National Park to a stroll down the Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk.

  1. Savor the crisp autumn weather

Canada and New England’s crisp fall air is ideal for walking tours, strolls along the water, and cozy nights on the top deck. Enjoy the fall breeze right from your balcony onboard, under layers with your favorite warm seasonal drink, before the winter begins!
