Overview

Don't just take a vacation. Take a Vacation that's more fun!

Experience New England and Eastern Canada the way you've always dreamed.

Lighthouses aren't the only reason people found their way here. New England and Eastern Canada have an unmistakable charm, rich history and natural beauty all their own. And there's no better time to visit than the fall - when the foliage is brilliant in every imaginable color, lighthouses dot the coastline, and there's always an authentic lobster bake going on somewhere.

On the days we are at sea attend the Legacy Family Tree genealogy classes and learn the real secrets to becoming an expert with Legacy and improving the way you do your research. Go home with the knowledge and tools you need to be more successful than you ever thought possible. You will be learning directly from the experts.

There's never been a cruise ship like Royal Caribbean's ship Explorer of the Seas. Enjoy one-of-a-kind features like an ice-skating rink, the Royal Promenade and a rock-climbing wall. There was only one way to accommodate all of these innovative ideas. We built a bigger cruise ship. The 138,000-ton, 3,114-guest Explorer of the Seas offers more space for every guest - plus enhanced staterooms, expanded dining options and exceptional recreational facilities. This cruise ship is so high-tech, it even features the University of Miami Ocean Lab, a state-of-the-art oceanographic and atmospheric science lab.

Cape Liberty Cruise Port, New Jersey

New York City "The Big Apple"

New York City is an exciting place which attracts visitors from all over the world, who come to see its many world class attractions.

New York is the considered to be the crossroads of the world and the attractions reflect the rich cultural history of the city. Visit Ellis Island to see where immigrants came to America. See New York's Chinatown for a glimpse of the rich Asian influence, or spend a day at the American Museum of Natural History for a truly educational experience.

Whether you wish to get tickets to join us for a Broadway Show, visit the New York Statue of Liberty or see a game at Madison Square Garden. You definitely want to come a few days early to take in all that New York has to offer. Go see Ground Zero where the Trade Center use to stand. See the lights and billboards of Times Square. And as the ship sail from New Jersey you will have a spectacular view of New York City.

We will be scheduling a group tour to see Broadway "Lion King," If the guys aren't interested in Broadway how about a Yankee Game.

 

Portland, Maine

The Greater Portland region of Maine is the perfect location for those who love the seacoast and the excitement and cultural that this northern New England city has to offer. There are many historic forts and lighthouses, ferries, sightseeing cruises, and plenty of restaurants, museums, theatres, and shops.

 

Bar Harbor, Maine

Bar Harbor, Maine, originally called Eden, has a world renowned ambiance that blends seashore community, Downeast character, rocky shores, and the famous Maine Lobster. Founded in 1796, it is the best known town on Mount Desert Island . The villages of Hulls Cove, Salisbury Cove, and Town Hill are all part of the municipality of Bar Harbor. Charming cobblestone streets and quaint storefronts make Bar Harbor a delightful New England vacation destination. But it's what's just down the road that makes it truly unique. Acadia National Park, just a short drive from downtown Bar Harbor, is a triumph of the Parks System Conservative Program and offers a spectacular display of nature at its finest. Rocky cliffs and jagged coastline open to beautiful ocean views and stony beaches, perfect for a mouthwatering traditional Maine lobster bake.

 

Saint John, New Brunswick

The Bay of Fundy area is interesting. If you love natural phenomena, whale watching, and the rugged New England coast, you'll love the Bay of Fundy. The Bay of Fundy is famous for its strong tides, the most extreme in the entire world. This phenomenon makes for unbelievable scenery and fascinating natural events such as the Reversing Falls Rapids. Among all of Saint John's attractions, you'll enjoyed the Reversing Falls Rapids the most. It is not far from the downtown area, and the magic show occurs twice daily where the Saint John River meets the Bay of Fundy in a narrow rocky gorge. When the Fundy tides are low, the river rushes past the steep cliffs into the bay. It looks much like any whitewater river, full of rocks, rapids, and whirlpools. However, as the tides rise, even the river cannot match the power of the ocean surge from the Fundy. As the level of the bay rises, the river undergoes a transformation. First, at slack tide (when the level of the bay and the level of the river are about equal), the whitewater in the gorge becomes as smooth as glass. It looks completely different! Then, almost miraculously, as the Fundy tides reach their peak, they overpower the river and force it to retreat, causing the rapids to push upstream! It is really unbelievable!

 

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Nature has blessed this area with sandy beaches, rugged shorelines and colorful gardens. This fine location was the site of the first British town in Canada, founded in 1749. Since then, the area has evolved to be home for a diverse mix of people. Charming fishing villages, farming communities and Atlantic Canada's largest city awaits you.

In the heart of the downtown you'll find art galleries, museums, historic sites and churches, shopping, sidewalk cafés. Scrumptious dining and non-stop fun are the ticket to an exhilarating Halifax experience.

If you seek peaceful nature scenes, head out of the downtown for nearby communities offering hiking, camping, and bird watching. Let yourself be romanced by the sea. Everyone is drawn to the ocean - the crisp tang of salt air, fresh breezes, and an ever-changing panorama of colour and light. Everyone should experience the pleasure of a broad sandy beach, the awesome power of waves crashing against a rocky shore, or the simple pleasure of beachcombing for unexpected treasures from the sea. Stroll our boardwalks and see ships from around the world, watch fishermen at their timeless tasks or sail or kayak among the many islands of our beautiful bays.

 

Boston, Massachusetts

Known as "the Hub" since its pre-revolutionary days as "the Hub of Civilization," Boston is still an exciting, vibrant city. Home to some of the world's greatest universities and colleges, there is always something happening there. It's an extremely walkable city with an easily accessible public transportation system, making it easy for tourists to explore. There are a number of Revolutionary War attractions you can visit today.

  • Boston Common, Revolutionary War troops' training grounds

  • Bunker Hill Monument, site of the American Revolution's bloodiest battle

  • USS Constitution, America's only sailing ship that is still commissioned

  • Faneuil Hall, key meeting place of the Boston patriots

  • Home of John Hancock, Governor and signer of the Declaration of Independence

  • Old North Church, where the lanterns were hung to warn that the British were on their way to Lexington

  • Paul Revere House, home of the silversmith and patriot

  • Longfellow National Historic Site, later the home of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, this was the site where General George Washington planned the liberation of Bosto
