8 Days | New England's Islands


Day 1 | Providence, RI. Embark. The state capitol of Rhode Island is known as the "Renaissance City," with a host of attractions for visitors to enjoy including acclaimed theaters, fine arts and Philharmonic performances. Over three centuries of fascinating history are preserved in Providence from Benefit Street's "Mile of History" to the immaculate examples of Colonial and Victorian architecture.

Day 2 | New Bedford, MA. In the mid-19th century, New Bedford was the whaling capital of the world, and became the inspiration behind Herman Melville's classic American novel, Moby Dick, in 1841. Today, New Bedford is still known as "The Whaling City," with an authentic seaport village, large fishing fleet and working waterfront.

Day 3 | Nantucket Island, MA. Be transported back to the 18th century as you step off your ship onto the timeworn cobblestone streets of Nantucket. Discover how this delightful island evolved from a small farming community to be the center of the American whaling industry and then to a popular resort community. Nantucket is a world unto itself, with towering church steeples and old-world architecture.

Day 4 | Martha's Vineyard. Martha's Vineyard was once a hub for whaling fleets and merchant ships, with exotic cargo from far corners of the world arriving on her shores. Today, the island is one of the most popular vacation spots in New England, comprised of six distinct towns, including Chilmark and Vineyard Haven. The most genteel town on the island is historic Edgartown, prim and proper with its freshly painted colonial homes and manicured gardens.

Day 5 | Bristol, RI. Stroll along Mohegan Bluffs and admire the Southeast Lighthouse, located along the southern shore of the island.

This small island off the coast of Rhode Island has become a popular summertime destination, adored for its easy-going attitude, splendid nature trails, and breathtaking views.

As you stroll along the beautiful beaches, historic neighborhoods, bustling wharves and scenic waterfront, you'll find that Newport offers something for everyone.

Day 7 | Bristol, RI. Visit Battleship Cove, a unique "floating" museum recognized as the world's largest collection of 20th-century U.S. naval fighting ships.
