We start our 12-day adventure of coastal southern and mid-Atlantic states in Savannah, the oldest city in Georgia. Against a backdrop of preserved historic buildings, and the clip-clop of horse drawn carriages on cobblestones, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into a painting of the pre-Civil War era. 

Next, we’ll visit Beaufort, on Port Royal Island, one of South Carolina’s coastal gems, where you’ll be surrounded by mansions from the 19th century amid moss-draped oaks. The style and charm of the old south continue as we sail to Charlestown and Georgetown, SC. And everywhere, optional tours are available for walking, van, boat and carriage.

The leisurely pace of our 5-state coastal cruise includes stops in Southport and Beaufort NC. Hungry travelers can sample Southport’s delicious crab-cake sandwiches. While Beaufort’s claim to fame is that it was host to pirate, Blackbeard, and today is a protected habitat of wild horses.

After a full day of cruising, we drop anchor in Norfolk, VA, home of Norfolk Naval Base and the MacArthur Memorial. From there, we’ll visit Yorktown, VA, where General Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington in October 1781.

Our excursion then takes us to Maryland’s capital city, Annapolis. Explore the U.S. Naval Academy or soak in the Arts District before we arrive at our final destination—Baltimore, MD. We’ll dock right in the vibrant Inner Harbor where you’ll be steps away from the world famous crab shacks, as well as attractions like the War of 1812 warship USS Constellation and the National Aquarium.
