Miami to Halifax
Get ready for this voyage along North America’s Eastern seaboard, offering a striking contrast between vibrant coastal cities and laid-back small towns, from Miami in the south all the way up to Canada. We visit charming Charleston, pass the Statue of Liberty as we sail in to explore The Big Apple, then through Nantucket Sound, up to Yarmouth, and finally Halifax.
Our voyage starts in Miami, a cocktail of cultures from South Beach to Little Havana. The architecture here is also part of the greatest collection of art deco buildings in the world. Before embarking on MS Fram, enjoy an overnight in this vibrant city to sample the tropical gardens, lively arts scene and exceptional cuisine.
The Expedition Team will deliver their lecture programme, covering a range of topics related to the areas we sail to. The onboard photographer will also run small workshops teaching you the basics of expedition photography. Or, you can use the time just to relax and chat with your fellow explorers.
Charleston is considered one of America’s greatest historic treasures. With cobblestone streets, an elegant French Quarter, the magnificent Battery promenade, and Waterfront Park, the city is ideal to stroll around on foot or even by horse-drawn carriage. Explore the city’s historic sites at your leisure or join one of our optional excursions.
A day at sea means you can join the lectures presented by the Expedition Team or spend time on deck or in the panorama lounge with fellow travelers. Enjoy a refreshing workout in our well-equipped fitness room with a panoramic ocean view or let your muscles relax in one of the outdoor whirlpools.
We sail into Manhattan, passing by the stunning Statue of Liberty. MS Fram will dock in New York overnight while you take a bite out of the Big Apple. Marvel at the skyline of this iconic metropolis, stroll through beautifully lush Central Park in full spring bloom, see one of the many Broadway shows, gaze at the city lights from atop the Empire State Building, or visit the famed Times Square. New York has so much to offer it’s impossible to fit everything in in just two days, but it’s certainly great fun to try. Explore the city on your own or on one of our optional excursions.
Visitors are drawn to this colorful town for the beautiful beaches, restaurants, and charming shops. Artists began frequenting Provincetown a century ago and it is one of the oldest continuous art colonies in the country. Nearby Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary attracts 17 species of whale, including humpbacks and rare North Atlantic right whales.
Welcome to this historic town at the intersection of traditional Anglo-Scottish and Acadian French cultures. Situated in the world's largest lobster fishing grounds, Yarmouth boasts the largest fishing fleet in Atlantic Canada. View the grand sea captain homes built in 1850 or enjoy the picturesque views and hiking trails at Cape Forchu Lightstation.
Your journey ends in Halifax. There are red-brick heritage buildings, parks, the landmark Citadel Hill National Historic Site, top-quality museums, Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery, and a 4km seafront boardwalk. We definitely recommend spending an extra day or two here on a Post-Programme before you head back home.
