7 Night Cruise sailing from St John to Boston aboard Victory I. Hotel stay pre-cruise in St John. Absorb the heart and soul of America’s birthplace as the M/V Victory I visits some of the region’s most storied destinations. See quaint, quintessential New England on display in all her finery. Craggy bluffs, spans of sandy beach and lush farmland offer the backdrop to a genuine and original American experience. Embrace the essence of this incomparable locale. Day 1 Hotel Stay in St. John, New Brunswick Enjoy a complimentary stay at the pre-cruise hotel. The evening allows time to become acquainted with the city. Day 2 St. John, New Brunswick In the anchor town serving the barrier Golden Isles, wander downtown Brunswick’s charming streets, lined with colorful Victorian architecture and swaying palms side by side with mossy oaks. Watch shrimp boats unload their fresh fare at the docks, and sample their catches in a rustic seafood shack or an upscale gastropub. Across the Marshes of Glynn, “heavenly woods and glades” memorialized by poet Sidney Lanier grace unspoiled, unhurried St. Simons Island, where an included tour visits the Lighthouse Museum and the A.W. Jones Heritage Center. At the World War II Home Front Museum, gain a rare glimpse into life during that time as it was lived in coastal Georgia among three critical military facilities. Day 3 Bar Harbor, ME 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. Answer your inner adventurer’s call on an optional premium experience to transcend the bounds of the soil and behold the untamed terrain as birds soaring overhead do – on a scenic flight. Or soak in some Downeast hospitality on a traditional lobster boat tour. As seals laze on jutted rocks, we make our way to commune with Cadillac Mountain – the East Coast’s highest peak. Day 4 Rockland, ME 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. Day 5 Boothbay Harbor, ME Welcome to the quintessential seaside New England village. Imagine cheerful clambakes shared on beaches backed by towering pines…lazy pups lapping from public bowls in the eclectic shopping district… salty snaps of sea breezes. Nearby, stunning botanic gardens showcase the best of the region’s plant life. Boothbay Harbor captures hearts in an unparalleled fashion. Most visitors find their way back to its magic again and again. Day 6 Provincetown, MA 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. Day 7 Martha’s Vineyard, MA 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. Day 8 Nantucket, MA This tiny island has been home to indigenous peoples, Quakers, whalers, counterculture free spirits and the upper echelons of industry and commerce. At heart, it’s an unassuming little ration of heaven on Earth – a summer playground of disarming natural beauty. Charming shops along cobblestone downtown streets offer all manner of treats, while beyond lies a wealth of wonder – quirky museums, grand galleries, powdery beaches, local brews and so much more. Day 9 Disembark in Boston As the journey concludes, there are other opportunities for you to take in the town.
