Cruise the Clouds is the fifth level of World 5 found in Yoshi's New Island. It introduces Bubble Dayzees and Wobble Rocks as stage hazards, while introducing Goonies that drop Shy Guys. The level's theme and backgrounds progress from being on the ground, to higher in the sky, to space. The level makes use of jumping on flying enemies to reach collectibles. This level's playable Yoshi is the purple Yoshi.


The first area Purple Yoshi starts out in is a sunset area starts the level in a cloudy area with Goonies and Shy Guys; platforms here consist of mostly small rocks. After the first Smiley Flower, Purple Yoshi encounters Goonies that drop off Shy Guys. Where four Goonies drop off Shy Guys, a Winged Cloud can be hit to collect stars. Bubble Dayzees can then be found on rocks; another Winged Cloud is found which gives the level's second Smiley Flower. After a large Wobble Rock with coins around, a Warp Pipe takes Purple Yoshi to the next area.

This area, now with a higher elevation in the background, starts off with a Checkpoint Ring followed by a Bubble Dayzee and multiple small wobble rocks with Fly Guys, some which act as platforms for Purple Yoshi to jump on to reach collectibles. The pipe before the third area is near a Bubble Dayzee, who is on a bridge.

The last area takes place with even higher elevation, in space, and another Checkpoint Ring. A Spring Ball propels Purple Yoshi up towards clouds that move left and right. There is a door on the upper left area which can be accessed if Purple Yoshi hits a hidden Winged Cloud near the horizontally moving cloud platforms: the door takes Purple Yoshi to a Super Yoshi course and a door that leads back to the main area and coins that lead Purple Yoshi back to the staircase. Above the moving cloud platforms is a Winged Cloud that spawns a Spring Ball, which falls into a pit if there is no cloud platform below it. Goal Ring. More Bubble Dayzees and Flightless Goonies are encountered and a Winged Cloud that spawns stars, though the area above with the level's fifth Smiley Flower has coins that lead back to the ground, ending with the Goal Ring
