From the city to the sea
This voyage departs from the excitement of New York and sails into the peace and quiet of Newport, where you can walk along the beautiful cliffs and enjoy the sight of mansions built by the Astors and Vanderbilts, among others, as the town was a hub for some of America's wealthiest families. Boston is the next stop, and you will have time to discover some of the must-see historic sites and charming cobbled streets. Skyscrapers nestle next to centuries-old houses in this renowned city, as Boston manages to blend past and present in an artful and welcoming way.
The Maine voyage of discovery
Maine is New England at its most iconic. The sea looms large here, with mile upon mile of jagged sea cliffs, peaceful harbours and pebbled beaches. But Maine is much more than just lobsters, lighthouses and picturesque ports. To get a deeper insight into the coast, we visit the quaint towns of Rockland, and call on Bucksport, home of the national historic landmark of Fort Knox . Bar Harbor offers charming architecture and a chance experience mountains, lakes, forests, and gorgeous coastal landscapes of Acadia National Park.
Modern Halifax was founded in 1749, and today serves as Atlantic Canada's entertainment and cultural capital. Modern office towers of glass and steel stand beside historic buildings that once stored the booty of privateers. Visit the Citadel national historic site and explore the surrounding parks, which offer plenty of outdoor activities. Spend some time exploring this vibrant urban centre perched on the edge of wilderness.
