Embark

Embark the ship in Boston.

Day 1: Boston

Join Le Soleal in Boston in the early evening. There will be time to settle in to your stateroom before your first gourmet dinner on board tonight.

Day 2: At Sea

Spend the day at sea as the ship sails towards Lunenburg.

Day 3: Lunenburg

Stretching out along the eastern seaboard of Nova Scotia, the picturesque port of Lunenburg is your next port of call. Here you can admire the colonial architecture of this fishing village whilst strolling through the chequerboard streets studded with brightly coloured houses. The enchanting charm of the old town has earned it UNESCO World Heritage status.

Day 4: Bar Habour

Arrive at Bar Harbour, a seaside resort for aristocrats of another era, this former fishing port, founded in the early 18th Century reveals an atmosphere that is both chic and refined, and over time has become the ideal destination for romantics and lovers of open spaces. Here you may join a number of optional excursions including visiting the Acadia National Park, one of the most visited Parks in the United States. This tour takes you along the 27-mile Park Loop Road offering spectacular coastal, mountain and forest scenery, and also makes a stop at Acadia National Park’s Hulls Cove Visitor Center. Alternatively spend the day on a grand tour of the Acadia National Park and enjoy a scrumptious Maine Lobster meal. Along the way you’ll visit the famous Jordan Pond House where you can enjoy the view of the Penobscot Mountains and Bubbles Hill before continuing on to Cadillac Mountain.

Day 5: Salem

Today the ship arrives at Salem. Founded in the 17th Century on the site of a former Amerindian village, Salem is fascinating for its unusual history and its “witching” legends. Salem has preserved an exceptional historical centre, home to museums as well as perfectly preserved private homes. A real source of inspiration for many artists, let yourself be captivated by this picturesque small town and its adventures of pirates and tales of witchcraft. Join an optional excursion to Hammond Castle en route to Gloucester, where the ocean has been a lifeblood since long before the first European settlement here.

Day 6: Newport, Rhode Island

Spend the day on Rhode Island, a marina harbour, with only 25,000 inhabitants and boasting fabulous Gilded Age mansions inspired by French and Italian palaces. One example is The Elms, the summer residence of the Berwind family, who made their fortune in the coal industry. You can join an optional guided cliff walk on a path that runs between Newport's rocky coastline and the "backyards" of many of Bellevue Avenue's palatial cottages. The walk will stop at The Breakers. From the 1870s to the 1920s, the Vanderbilts were one of America's most affluent families and commissioned the most prestigious and expensive architectural firms to build a series of homes for them along the East Coast.

Days 7-8: New York

You will spend the next days in New York. With its five particularly spread out districts - Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island –, it offers an incredible number of cultural interests. Be amazed by the constant buzz at Times Square, taking a stroll in Central Park’s 341 hectares, or climbing to the top of the Statue of Liberty. You may join a number of optional excursions including visiting Ground Zero and the Memorial and Museum.

Day 9: Oak Bluff - Martha’s Vineyard

Oak Bluffs will surprise you first and foremost by its Gingerbread Houses. The story goes that the Methodist community settled here more than a century ago, and built these colourful houses, straight out of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale fairytale. Enjoy a visit to the Flying Horses, the oldest wooden carrousel in the United States.

Day 10: Boston

Disembark the ship in Boston after your final breakfast.
