Your Itinerary

    1Embark in Washington, D.C.
    Besides being the home of the Orioles, Baltimore is near Fort McHenry, where the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ was inspired during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812. Originally a poem, Francis Scott Key wrote the ‘Defence of Fort McHenry’ to honor the American resistance to the British Royal Navy’s bombardment.

    2Annapolis, 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, visit three of the homes once belonging to the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

    3St. 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, and now dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the Chesapeake Bay.

    4Cambridge, 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 witness the diverse wildlife and shorebirds that inhabit the area.

    5Day of Cruising
    Spend the day cruising one of America’s most historic waterways in the delightful comfort of American Constitution. As you travel, learn about the culture and history of the region from our onboard experts, relax on your private balcony, or fly a kite on the top deck. In the evening, share in the company of fellow cruisers while listening to some of the area’s finest entertainment.

    6Norfolk, 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 exploring the many historic districts, the downtown waterfont, and the variety of museums.

    7Norfolk, VA
    Spend a second day in this unique city made up of vibrant neighborhoods, each with their own character and atmosphere. From neighborhoods featuring tree-lined cobblestone streets, manicured gardens, and historic homes to the urban waterfront known for great shopping, entertainment, and dining, there is something for everyone.

    8Williamsburg,/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 of 17th-century American history which tells the story of America's first permanent English colony settled in 1607.

    9Mount 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.

    10Washington, 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.
