Independence Day Cruises

Where? The open sea

When? Varies

What? Turn your Fourth of July week into a mini-vacation by booking a trip with Carnival Cruise out of Miami. Numerous cruise ships are departing from or arriving at Miami near July 4th, allowing passengers to watch the Independence Day fireworks from the deck. For instance, this 4-day Western Caribbean cruise to Cozumel will arrive at Miami early on July 5th, but you should be able to view the July 4th fireworks the night before (they’re hard to miss). We suggest asking a Carnival travel representative for specifics.

You also have the option of taking a shorter, one-day cruise and tour around the Biscayne Bay area. Private tour guides are hosting special July 4th cruises that come with dinners, full open bars, dancing, music, and other forms of entertainment. When the July Fourth fireworks begin, you’ll have the best possible view.
