Cruise Itinerary

Embark today in Boston where you'll prepare to sail north towards New Brunswick, CA.


Welcome to the “City of the Ships” - Bath, ME. Located on the west bank of the Kennebec River, Bath remains a major player in the naval shipbuilding industry today. Discover the Maine Maritime Museum and experience over 400 years of shipbuilding heritage and culture. See 19th century brick buildings while exploring shops and restaurants downtown.


Rockland, ME is a charming coastal town with a welcoming downtown, thriving artists’ community, and a rich history of shipbuilding. Settle in and relax as the ship sails “Down East” this afternoon to Eastport, ME, a popular resort town on Mount Desert Island.


Arrive this morning in Eastport, ME, the eastern-most city in the United States. Consisting of just 12.34 square miles of enchanting island beauty, it’s clear why the locals invite visitors to discover “The Maine Thing.” An optional guided tour of the town acquaints you with the remarkable Old Sow Whirlpool and historic Raye’s Mustard Mill.


Be greeted by seals and other marine mammals as we cross into Canada! An optional excursion takes you to Roosevelt-Campobello International Park, offering postcard- perfect views of the majestic Bay of Fundy en route to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s beloved island home.


Uncover the unique charms shaped by the world's largest tides on Grand Manan Island; the Bay of Fundy's largest island. Grand Manan is a hub for all kinds of wildlife. Here, you will have the opportunity to observe diverse species of birds and the gentile giants of the ocean. Keep your eyes peeled for whales in the distance.


Before the 1947 fire, some of America’s most affluent families owned summer homes in Bar Harbor. The properties of some of these notable individuals - from the Rockefellers to the Vanderbilts - still exist throughout town. If you are up for an adventure, take a trip to Acadia National Park for a scenic view atop the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic Coast.


Arrive at noon in Portland, the largest city in Maine. Soak up the sea breeze and explore local shops, as you watch fishermen bring in the catch of the day. Enjoy a picturesque view of the Portland Harbor inside the Portland Head Light, the oldest lighthouse in Maine.


Optional sightseeing tours are at an additional cost. All itineraries including ports, activities and routes are subject to change based on availability, weather, river, water levels and sea conditions.
