Charting the Eastern Seaboard: Colonial America and Cultural Capitals from Boston to Nassau

Come aboard Vantage Deluxe World Travel's 5-star Ocean Explorer for a voyage that celebrates the very roots of America. You'll journey from the crystalline waters of The Bahamas, where Columbus first set foot in the New World, and Florida’s island fortifications to Virginia’s earliest colonies and the plantation lands of the South — all the way to Boston's Revolutionary sites.

Revolutionary History of Boston, Lexington & Concord

Walk in the footsteps of John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and other patriots as you explore important Revolutionary sites — from Boston’s Freedom Trail to Lexington and Concord and beyond

Charleston’s Antebellum Heritage

Discover Charleston's stunning waterfront, exquisite architecture, and historic attractions, such as the spectacular antebellum Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

The Caribbean Charm of Nassau

Get into the easygoing rhythm of Bahamian life during your two-night, beachfront stay in beautiful Nassau

Extension: Cape Ann, Salem & Boston

When settlers arrived on Cape Ann in 1623, they declared its waters the best fishing grounds in the New World. Some things never change. Four hundred years on, the “Other Cape” of Massachusetts (its most famous is Cape Cod) remains steeped in the traditions and charms of its fishing village origins. Prolong your stay in Boston, and you’ll experience them firsthand during visits to Rockport, home to a thriving artists’ community; Gloucester, renowned for its fishing past; and Salem, with its witchy and seafaring past. Depending on your departure, you’ll visit Salem during peak Halloween festivities, so get ready for a day full of breathtaking coastal vistas, beautiful seascape paintings, and spellbinding history. Plus, an additional day in Boston lets you delve more deeply into its sophisticated culture.

Kathi Cullin, Cruise Director

Working in travel for most of her life, Kathi is excited to show Vantage travelers the wonders of the United States — and she’s been to all 50. She loves highlighting the different characteristics of the Great Lakes and America’s national parks, each boasting a distinct personality and beauty. With her insider’s knowledge, Kathi enhances every city tour, museum visit, and lighthouse view with in-depth regional history and local expertise. “I love going on adventures with a new group — you just never know what’s going to happen, what might stand out as the most memorable part of the tour, or how travelers are going to react,” she said.

Ruby A. Gatins, Cruise Director

“Traveling and communicating with other cultures opens your mind and enriches you,” says Ruby Gatins, and she should know. Ruby and her identical twin sister were born in Mexico to parents who loved nature and adventure. Her own love of travel was assured when, beginning when she was five, the family set out on annual camping trips in Europe. Not only did the family adventures inspire a career in travel, they also made her the tri-linguist that she is today (Spanish, English, and French).
