Departing Albuquerque, we fly to New York, where we lodge overnight.
Our morning begins with a city tour before we transfer to our ship. A leading global city, New York exerts a powerful influence over worldwide commerce, finance, culture and fashion, and entertainment. The city consists of five boroughs and an intricate patchwork of neighborhoods. Some of these include Lower Manhattan, Battery Park and Chinatown, trendy SoHo and Greenwich Village, along with Little Italy, the Flatiron District and Gramercy Park. Famous Central Park covers 843 acres of paths, ponds, lakes and green space within the asphalt jungle.
DAY 3 D
In the 19th century, Newport was America's Versailles. It was here that the great merchant princes and robber barons of the Gilded Age erected the elaborate summerhouses they so ingenuously dubbed "cottages." Today, it is the privileged traveler who marvels at the splendor of great mansions like The Breakers, The Elm or Rosecliff.
Please Note: Newport is an anchorage port. Transfer from the ship to shore will be via the ship's tender service. In ports where guests utilize tender boats to go ashore, Princess staff will make every effort to assist but are not allowed to individually physically lift more than 50 lbs. Guests requiring physical assistance must travel with an able-bodied companion. With your safety and comfort in mind, the final decision to permit or prohibit passengers from going ashore will be made on each occasion by the ship's Captain.
DAY 4 B, L, D
Hailed as the "Cradle of American Independence," Boston is filled with historic sites. Boston was America's first great city. In the 19th century, Boston was rightly described as the "Athens of America." Follow the Freedom Trail along three of the most historic miles in the country. See the site of the Boston Tea Party, trace the route of Paul Revere's famous ride, and stand on the bridge where Minutemen fired "the shot heard 'round the world." Today this city of 800,000 retains its vitality, combining historic districts with revitalized urban centers while remaining faithful to its venerable roots.
DAY 5 B, L, D
President Woodrow Wilson established Acadia National Park, outside of Bar Harbor, as the first national park east of the Mississippi. A catastrophic fire in 1947 ravaged the town and the surrounding forest. But Acadia National Park survived, and today it is one of the most visited national parks in America. Acadia's 35,000 acres are studded with natural wonders: In addition to the stunning landscape, some 50 species of mammals including moose, black bear and white tail deer roam the park.
Please note: Bar Harbor is an anchorage port. Transfer from the ship to shore will be via the ship's tender transfer. In ports where guests utilize tender boats to go ashore, Princess staff will make every effort to assist but are not allowed to individually physically lift more than 50 lbs. Guests requiring physical assistance must travel with an able-bodied companion. With your safety and comfort in mind, the final decision to permit or prohibit passengers from going ashore will be made on each occasion by the ship's Captain.
DAY 6 B, L, D
Saint John, Canada's oldest settlement, is the gateway to the scenic wonders of New Brunswick. One of Canada's oldest provinces, New Brunswick remains remarkably unspoiled: 85 percent of the province remains unsettled. Nature also blessed the area with one of her most astonishing phenomena: the reversing River Rapids. The fierce tides of the Bay of Fundy rise with such force that they cause the St. John River to reverse direction and its waters to flow upstream.
DAY 7 B, L, D
The capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Canada's Atlantic Provinces, Halifax was once Great Britain's major military bastion in North America. Stroll the waterfront, and you may find Nova Scotia's floating ambassador, the schooner Bluenose II, tied up to Privateer's Wharf, just as old sailing ships have done for over 200 years. Halifax is also the gateway to Nova Scotia's stunning scenery, including famous Peggy's Cove, where surf-pounded granite cliffs and a solitary lighthouse create an unsurpassed scene of rugged natural beauty.
DAY 8 B, L, D
Travel by sea takes you far from the everyday. Cruise vacations allow you to see many places, yet unpack only once. Someone caters to your every whim. And you can do as much or as little as you like. Life on land suddenly seems boring.
DAY 9 B, L, D
We fly back home to Albuquerque, remembering our wonderful trip to Eastern Canada & New England.
