2017 Islands of New England Cruise

7 Day, 6 Night | Price Starting at $1,999.00

With a collection of picturesque islands dotting its rocky coast, summer cruising in New England is unparalleled. Voyage through the nooks and crannies of Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island and Newport to experience a classic back east adventure. It’s a place where rugged bays, sandy beaches and colorful lighthouses all have individual stories longing to be told; where oyster beds breed “shucked-to-order” shellfish in mellow, sheltered harbors; and where modest colonial charm and Gilded Age beauty combine to create a feeling of sophistication and authenticity. Island hop with a local and experience New England the way it’s meant to be – from the water.
