Cruises from Miami in South Florida go to the Caribbean, Bahamas and through the Panama Canal. Some trans-Atlantic repositioning cruises start in Miami.
Miami is home to a diverse array of cultures and activities. Coral Gables, with its tree-lined avenues and gracefully winding roadways, is the city's artsy area. Ocean Drive is Miami Beach's prime "see-and-be-seen" locale, where beachgoers frolic against the backdrop of colorful art deco buildings. Nightlife in Miami is among the liveliest in the world, with concentrations of discos and bars in South Beach and Coconut Grove.
Cruises from Fort Lauderdale, in South Florida, visit the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico and Central America. Fort Lauderdale also is a starting point for Panama Canal cruises and trans-Atlantic repositioning cruises.
