Islands of New England 2020 - 2021 (Grande Mariner)

How could anything be more delightful than hopscotching your way across the islands of New England in the summer? New England is pretty in any season but imagine seeing its full blossoming glory from the deck of our cruise ship as we set sail out of New York City or Boston.

You’ll experience 7 unforgettable days that take you to storybook villages on Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, to the cozy beauty and pristine beaches of Block Island.

You’ll visit Newport, RI, where you can shop, stroll or choose from optional excursions like sailing on an America’s Cup boat, or touring its famous mansions.

From our ship, you’ll see rocky cliffs that seem to plunge into the surf, as well as brave lighthouses that stand ready to warn to sailors of the perils of the sea. And, of course, at every port, you will find exquisitely delicious New England seafood. Lobster, scallops, fried clams and authentic New England clam chowder—it doesn’t get any better than this! Welcome aboard!
