What’s the next best thing to being on a cruise ship? Perhaps finding your next cruise deal makes top of the list but, until that next sail away party happens, watching cruise ship webcams will help as you daydream about the next group vacation.

Watching live cruise ship webcams or tuning into your favorite port cam will help keep you up to date with the comings and goings at popular cruise ports. Virtually take in the sunshine with the Port Nassau webcam or scan the Miami cruise port webcam to spy on your favorite ship as it sets sail to tropical destinations.

Not all cruise lines offer live feeds, unfortunately. The Royal cams were discontinued, for example, but there are many cruise ship webcams to watch. The Norwegian Getaway webcam offers dreamy views from the bridge, as do many others included in the list below. Take a look at our roundup of cruise ship webcams and port cam availability below.

Editor's note: Cruise lines and ports are only listed if they had active webcams at the time of publication. Some links point to aggregate pages to access the cameras from multiple ships, while others go to individual ship cams. Feed functionality and quality are subject to change at any time and are dependent on many factors, including weather, connection speeds and the whims of cruise line and port officials.

AIDA Cruises Webcams

German cruise line AIDA offers 36 cruise ship webcams, including three different perspectives from their newest ship, AIDAcosma. Guests who have downloaded Aida’s mobile app will also be able to watch live feeds from cruise ship cameras, including views from the bridge.

Costa Cruises Webcams

Costa Cruises offers a convenient landing page noting which cruise ship webcams are available. The page also shares the ship’s current position and itinerary. While these Costa cruise ship cameras offer a small live feed from the bow and aft, larger webcam views are available elsewhere.

Norwegian Cruise Ship Webcams

Norwegian Cruise Line has cruise ship webcams on much of its fleet. While there isn’t a single aggregate webcam page on NCL.com, it is easy enough to find individual cruise ship cameras by visiting NCL’s website.

On the NCL site, click on your ship of choice and scroll to the image gallery to see an option for webcam. Clicking that will produce a static recent image from the ship’s live camera. Here is a link to the Norwegian Bliss webcam, for example. Alternatively, Cruising Earth hosts a page with all the Norwegian ship cameras.

Princess Cruise Ship Webcams

Princess Cruises makes it easy to find an assortment of bridge views by housing all of its cruise ship webcams on a single page. The visual includes a note of where the ship is or is on route to.

TUI Cruises Webcams

German cruise line TUI Cruises provides a dozen live cruise ship webcams from its fleet. On the cruise line’s website, visitors can also navigate to their favorite Mein Schiff ship to watch time lapse videos from the cruise ship cameras, like this video for Mein Schiff 4.

Viking Ocean Cruises

Viking Ocean Cruises has eight webcams available online on one aggregate page. Live feeds from the cruise ship webcams note the current location and itinerary name for each Viking vessel.
