The next few weeks offer one of cruising’s rarest gems: the chance to combine a seaside journey with fantastic autumn views.

During September and October, several cruise lines offer fall foliage voyages along the East Coast. These routes combine dazzling fall colors with stops in charming ports and, if you’re lucky, a humpback whale spotting or two.

Popular fall experiences include touring the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, in Nova Scotia, and sauntering amid the autumn wonder of Acadia National Park, in Maine. You can also leaf-peep aboard your boat, perhaps from your stateroom with a warm cup of coffee in hand.

Fall foliage cruises depart from Boston and New York, so you can save your airfare to upgrade your accommodations or invest in some unforgettable shore excursions.
