We’re saluting U.S. history with a patriotic voyage that visits many iconic heritage sites along the East Coast. Our November 5 “Colonial Collection” cruise sails from New York to Miami aboard Crystal Serenity. Guests will walk in the footsteps of presidents and gain a profound perspective on the people and places that shaped the country’s history. Among the American heritage excursions:
Steps Back In Time
Stroll through Colonial Williamsburg, as period-costumed hosts lead you through 18th century homes and Merchants Square, where you’ll see reenactments of authentic colonial life (from Norfolk, Virginia).
Retrace George Washington’s visit to Charleston, including a visit to the Heyward Washington House, where he stayed, and the Old Exchange, where he greeted citizens and where the Declaration of Independence was first read by South Carolina’s Governor (from Charleston, South Carolina).
Be among the first on a new tour of the 9/11 Memorial, personally guided by a survivor, rescue worker, volunteer or other veteran of the 2001 attacks.

See two of the country’s most significant symbols of freedom — Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty — with expert insights of the sites’ historical influence on our modern culture (from New York City).
