For your convenience, our Hospitality Desk will be located in the hotel, and our friendly staff can assist with everything from general questions about the upcoming voyage to reservation of premium experiences.

Day 2: Boston, MA | Embark

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Dinner
Boston is ubiquitous. As the Cradle of Modern America, it birthed a revolution. Laced in legacy and a world of cultures, the city has stories to tell. Follow the red-brick road along the Freedom Trail, and admire the zenith of colonial history and modern innovation. Cobblestone walkways, civic landmarks and classic architecture sit pretty to reveal authentic Americana from the perspective of one of the oldest cities in the United States. From bookstore and boutique to street performer, Boston is groundbreaking. 

Day 3: Nantucket, Massachusetts

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This tiny island – dubbed “Best Island in the World” by National Geographic – is situated 30 miles off Cape Cod’s southern coast. A Native American word, Nantucket translates into “faraway island” or “land far out to sea.” The 50-square-mile island has been home to indigenous peoples, Quakers, whalers, counterculture free spirits and the upper echelons of industry and commerce. At its heart, Nantucket is an unassuming island of disarming natural beauty. As such, it’s the summer playground to 12 of the world’s richest billionaires. The island, designated a National Historic Landmark, offers myriad sights and a rich, living history. Well-preserved historical sites include the African Meeting House, Brant Point Light, the First Congregational Church, the Hadwen House, the Maria Mitchell Association, the Nantucket Atheneum (local library), the Oldest House, the Pacific National Bank, the “Three Bricks” (which has a very interesting construction history), and the Whaling Museum. Most sites are within walking distance of each other. Save some time to appreciate the charms of Main Street. Named “One of America’s Greatest Main Streets” by editors at Travel + Leisure magazine, it features shady, cobblestone streets and byways, with au courant shops, quirky museums, grand galleries, and quaint cafes housed in weathered 18th and 19th-century buildings. Nearly half of Nantucket’s 30,000 acres are protected under the stewardship of the Land Bank and Conservation Foundation. Within these pastoral tracts, guests can appreciate 100 botanical and 300 bird species. A 32-mile network of gently meandering bicycle paths invites exhilarating exploration of town and its hinterlands.

Day 4: Martha’s Vineyard, MA

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Dotted with grassy hills and winding roads, this cherished island features three towns – Edgartown, Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs – and a few smaller villages. Colonial homes and Greek Revival mansions blend with weathered cottages in the architectural style named for the surrounding waters – Cape Cod. Shopping and sightseeing, lighthouses and lobsters, beaches and bike trails…these are the things that visits to Martha’s Vineyard are made of.

INCLUDED SHORE EXCURSIONS: Martha's Vineyard Included AM
Oak Bluffs:  This seaside resort from the Victorian era was constructed on historic campgrounds. Today, it features over 300 “gingerbread” cottages and other buildings from the 19th century. The Oak Bluffs is also home to one of the oldest platform carousels, the Flying Horse Carousel.

Edgartown:  Enjoy this storybook setting along the waterfront. Gaze upon the elegant Greek revival structures that housed the whaling captains in their heyday. Edgartown is home to many historic structures from the Old Whaling Church to the Harbor Lighthouse.

At the northern tip of Cape Cod, the first pilgrims from the Old World stepped off the Mayflower in 1620. Pilgrim Monument stretches high above the landscape overlooking the cerulean sprawl of the bay. The dense array of shops and restaurants on Commercial Street host a constant stream of visitors looking for the best of Cape Cod’s seafood and souvenirs. From multicolored murals to sunny decks on which to sit a spell, this spot feels like a slice of paradise.

INCLUDED SHORE EXCURSIONS: Provincetown Full Day

Commercial Street:  Enjoy local shops and restaurants for a taste of Provincetown. Stop in the shops and search for the perfect souvenir to commemorate your trip to New England! 

Provincetown Library:  This historic building has served the Provincetown community for over 150 years. Its varied uses include a church, art museum, heritage museum, and finally the public library that stands today. The interior of the building has been restored to match the original design and features much of the heritage museum’s collection.

Provincetown Art Association and Museum:  Explore this cultural institution and museum that hosts a stunning collection of art that showcases the artistic qualities of Provincetown and Cape Cod. Appreciate the area's culture through the galleries and exhibitions on display."

Day 6: Boothbay Harbor, Maine

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Picture Angela Lansbury riding her bike in the former hit TV show “Murder She Wrote.” Her hometown could have been Boothbay Harbor, the quintessential New England seaside village. When Pilgrims were low on food, a few sailed from Plymouth to resupply at Damariscove Island. The Scotch-Irish families who resettled the area in 1729 engaged in subsistence farming; exporting lumber, firewood, and fish for cash to buy what they could not grow. Eventually, shipbuilding and fishing were the area’s principal industries. Aside from the usual commercial and recreational boat building, naval vessels were built for World War I, World War II, and Korean War service. Boothbay shipbuilders were in demand at seaports all over New England when those contracts were awarded. That tradition of excellence continues today with the building of luxury yachts, tugs, and day-sailers, as well as classic lobster boats. Beginning in the 1860s, regular steamer service brought reliable transport to Bath, Portland, and Boston. With the first tourist boom in the 1880s, steamers brought vacationers and summer colonists to the region. Hotels and cottages sprang up throughout Boothbay. Also in the late 1880s, industrial-sized businesses were set up for the first time, bringing year-round work for many. Ice works were set up on many local ponds to turn frozen surfaces into large saleable blocks of ice for shipment to southern ports. Sardine and lobster canneries provided new jobs. The region experienced true prosperity. Today, the main sources of income are shipyards, fishing, tourism, and providing services for summer residents and retirees. 

Day 7: Rockland, ME

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This charming small town is New England in a snapshot. Lobsters, tall ships, lighthouses and puffins – the adorable orange-tinged birds, for which Maine ocean islands provide their only American nesting grounds. Limestone from the area helped build Boston, New York and beyond. Arts, attractions and breathtaking landscapes give rise to a special atmosphere here. 

INCLUDED SHORE EXCURSIONS:  Rockland Included Tour

Day 8: Bar Harbor, ME

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The sunrise greets this magical port on Mount Desert Island before any other place in America during fall. An encircling landscape of granite gorgeously sculpted by eons is the breathtaking backdrop for a community rooted in tradition and a true sense of place. In Acadia National Park, standing on the rare crushed-shell surface of Sand Beach affords a panorama of nature’s pageantry, from pink granite to towering evergreen. Soak in some Downeast hospitality on a traditional lobster boat tour optional premium experience. As seals laze on jutted rocks, we make our way to commune with Cadillac Mountain – the East Coast’s highest peak.

INCLUDED SHORE EXCURSIONS: Scenic Bar Harbor Included Tour
Bar Harbor is a scenic town on Mount Desert Island that rests on the cusp of Acadia National Park. The town’s impeccable beauty is distinct. The landscape is marked by natural wonders, such as overlooking ocean cliffs, rocky beaches, lush forests, and the not-so-distant peak of Cadillac Mountain. During your visit, experience the marvelous scenes of the coastal community along Frenchman Bay that have captured the hearts of many.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
