Day-to-Day Itinerary

Day 1 - Baltimore, MD

Start your journey in Baltimore, a great maritime city, alive with excitement, colonial history and a busy harbor scene. Explore its history aboard the decks of legendary ships and on the cobblestone streets of the charming waterfront Inner Harbor. Cruise past Fort McHenry, where the battle that inspired Francis Scott Key‘s " Star-Spangled Banner" was fought.

Day 2 - Norfolk, VA

Located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, Norfolk has enjoyed a dramatic history dating back to 1607, when British settlers first arrived on American shores. Today, the city embraces its colorful past while thriving as a modern metropolis. Tall schooners share the surrounding waters with naval vessels and oystermen. Enjoy tours of historic districts, museums, restored homes and the Norfolk Naval Station.

Day 3 - Williamsburg, VA

Colonial Williamsburg is the restored 18th century capital of Britain's largest empire outpost in the New World. Once the political and economic center of the Virginia Colony, today it is the world's premier living history site. Led by our expert guide, stroll along its narrow streets and listen for unique native accents nearly unchanged since the days of the first English Colonists.

Day 4 - Yorktown, VA

Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown make up what is known as the "Historic Triangle." Explore the port of Yorktown which was the site of the final battle of the American Revolution. Travel back in time at Jamestown Settlement, a museum about 17th century American history which tells the story of America's first permanent English colony settled in 1607.

Day 5 - Washington, D.C.

Washington, DC is our nation’s capital located on the Potomac River, and bordering the states of Maryland and Virginia. It is characterized by neoclassic monuments and iconic buildings including the U.S. Capitol, White House, and Supreme Court. It is also home to the Smithsonian Museums and performing-arts venues such as the Kennedy Center.

Day 6 - Mount Vernon, VA

Mount Vernon is an American landmark and an enduring tribute to our nation’s first President. Originally a one and one-half story house built by his father in 1735, President Washington acquired Mount Vernon in 1754, and over the next 45 years slowly enlarged the home to create the magnificent 21-room residence we see today. George Washington personally supervised each renovation and advised on design, construction, decoration, and landscaping—even during the Revolutionary War.

Day 7 - Cambridge, MD

Cambridge is an authentic Chesapeake town known for its rich history, beautiful buildings, and vibrant arts scene. Sail on an authentic skipjack or visit the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and see the diverse wildlife and shorebirds that inhabit the area. End your day with a special tea party hosted in the historic LaGrange Plantation.

Day 8 - St. Michaels, MD

Stroll along the waterfront of St. Michaels, or peruse the charming gift shops and boutiques on tree-lined Talbot Street. Dock at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, once a famed shipbuilding village, the quiet enchantment, exciting past and romantic atmosphere of this restored town will give you a glimpse of what life was like in the 1800's.

Day 9 - Annapolis, MD

The state capital of Maryland, Annapolis was founded in 1649, served briefly as the nation's capital in 1783 and boasts more 18th century brick buildings than any other city in the country. Travel through the charming historic streets of the 1690s, while your guide introduces you to 350 years of Annapolis' living history, architecture, and folklore. Along the way, you will see and hear about three homes of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Day 10 - Chestertown, MD

With a colonial history dating back to the 17th century, Chestertown, Maryland is proud of its maritime heritage, serving as a major port of entry during colonial times. Today, sailing ships can still be seen coming into port. Visit the Schooner Sultana, an exact replica of an 18th-century ship that served in the British Royal Navy, now operating as an educational vessel. Every Memorial Day, the city hosts The Chestertown Tea Party Festival, which celebrates colonial resistance to British rule, proudly tossing the British tea overboard.

Day 11 - Baltimore, MD

Your historic journey ends where it began, in the vibrant city of Baltimore. If you choose to extend your stay, a number of great excursions are available, including the Baltimore Aquarium and Civil War Museum. Feel free to call an American Cruise Lines specialist to assist you with your travel arrangements.
