Information About 3 Day Cruises

Information About 3 Day Cruises
Three-day cruises provide an enjoyable break from the daily grind. Cruise lines offer affordable excursions that allow travelers to enjoy the high seas and to experience a quick stopover at an exotic locale.


Three-day cruises travel to must-see destinations, little known ports of call, spend entire days at sea or cruise-to-nowhere. Cruise ships typically spend 12 to 14 hours at their main destination.

U.S. Departure Cities

Cruises depart from New York, San Diego, Los Angeles, Port Canaveral, Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa, Galveston, Norfolk, Biloxi and Mobile.

All Inclusive

Well appointed accommodations and all you-can-eat dinning are included in the price of the trip. Enjoy multiple servings in the ship's various restaurants and be sure to stop by the 24-hour pizzeria.


Cruise ships provide numerous entertainment options: Broadway style shows, musical performances, stand-up comedians, magicians, dance clubs and casinos.


Each traveler should set aside $10 per day for gratuities. Most cruise lines charge gratuities to your room at the end of the trip.


A valid U.S. passport is required on all cruises that visit international destinations. Cruise-to-Nowhere excursions do not require passports; however, they do require proof of citizenship and a government-issued photo ID.
