Itinerary

Day 1 Boston, Massachusetts

Home to Harvard and legendary sports teams the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics, the melting-pot city of Boston is a treasure trove of authentic Americana. Walking the Freedom Trail dives into the fascinating revolutionary roots of the oldest city in America. We sail scenic Boston Harbor aboard MS Roald Amundsen to begin our expedition.

Day 2-3 New York City

We sail into Manhattan, passing by the stunning Statue of Liberty. MS Fridtjof Nansen will dock in New York overnight while you take a bite out of the Big Apple. Marvel at the skyline of this iconic metropolis, stroll through Central Park in its golden autumn colours, see one of the many Broadway shows, gaze at the city lights from atop the Empire State Building, or visit the famed Times Square. New York has so much to offer its impossible to fit everything in in just two days, but its certainly great fun to try. Explore the city on your own or on one of our optional excursions.

Day 4 Philidelphia, Pennsylvania

Home to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the US Constitution was signed in 1787, Philidelphia is one of the most historic cities in America. Explore the Old City District to see the landmarks that give Philidelphia its rich history such as Franklin Court, the site of Benjamin Franklins home during the American Revolution.

Day 5 At Sea

The Expedition Team will continue their lecture programme, covering topics related to the areas in which we sail. The onboard photographer will also run workshops to show you the basics of expedition photography. There will also be time to relax and just enjoy being on board the ship.

Day 6 Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is considered one of Americas greatest historic treasures. With cobblestone streets, an elegant French Quarter, the magnificent Battery promenade, and Waterfront Park, the city is ideal to stroll around on foot or even by horse-drawn carriage. Explore the city and its historic sites at your leisure or join one of our optional excursions.

Day 7 At Sea

A day at sea means you can join the lectures presented by the expedition team or spend time on deck or in the panorama lounge with fellow travellers. Enjoy a refreshing workout in our well-equipped fitness room with an ocean view or let your muscles relax in one of the outdoor whirlpools.

Day 8 Miami, Florida

Miami is a cocktail of cultures from South Beach to Little Havana, blending vibes from Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe. The architecture is also part of the greatest collection of art deco buildings in the world. Join an excursion to nearby Everglades National Park where you can spot Florida alligators, egrets, and herons.

Day 9 Nassau, The Bahamas

Before you head home, take some time to explore the Bahamas on an optional Post-Programme. Former pirate haven, lively Nassau still has many British colonial buildings, such as the the pink-hued Government House and grand Georgian homes. New Providence Island and nearby Paradise Island are also renown for their beaches and splendid coral reefs.
