Thanks to The Insider and TripAdvisor, here are 2018’s most visited cities. Why not add them to your 2019 cruising list?

Savannah, GA

The historic district of Savannah Georgia is one of the best preserved in the entire country. Spend your visit taking a relaxing stroll on the cobblestone streets and taking in the old time vibe. If that’s not your way of relaxation, the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa – our recommended marina to dock at – has everything you need to lay back and take a load off. With their stunning pools, state-of-the-art spa, and friendly staff, you will feel right at home here!

There are always concerts, festivals, art exhibits and so much more going on. In the summertime, San Francisco is home to Outside Lands, a music, food, and comedy festival that hosts a ton of popular artists including Lorde, Solange, Schoolboy Q, and Tove Lo.

Washington, D.C.

We think everyone should visit the nation’s capital at least once. Whether it’s your first or tenth time, D.C. always has something new to discover. Home to more than 15 museums, incredible restaurants, and so much more, this is the perfect place to spend a weekend…or a week! Although many people like to go in the summer, we recommend visiting in the Spring to see the Cherry Blossoms in bloom. The Yards Marina is a great place to stay for those of you catching a ball game, and if you want to explore one of D.C.’s trendiest neighborhoods, book a slip at The Wharf Marina.
