American Cruise Lines is pleased to announce that on April 18th, its brand new 2018 ship, American Constitution will make its inaugural cruise on Chesapeake Bay with an all new American Revolution itinerary. Sailing along the historic shores near our Nation’s capital, the new American Revolution itinerary celebrates this gorgeous region steeped in American history. The cruise will further highlight Chesapeake Bay, known as the “Blue Crab Capitol of the World,” as guests will savor local recipes and enjoy the freshest Maryland crab throughout their journey back in time—to the dawn of America.
American Constitution will transport guests to the quaint towns and historic cities that shaped this great nation and continue to inspire visitors today. Roundtrip from Baltimore, this 10-day, 11-night cruise makes stops in Norfolk, VA; Williamsburg, VA; Yorktown, VA; Washington, D.C.; Mount Vernon, VA; Cambridge, MD; St. Michaels, MD; Annapolis, MD; and Chestertown, MD.
Lauded by Cruise Critic for award-winning onboard enrichment, American Cruise Lines brings together Revolutionary War experts, historians, authors and reenactors to bring the rich history of this region to life. Led by seasoned experts such as Dr. Harold Cones and Don Albert, guests on the American Revolution cruise, will be treated to tours, lectures, and presentations that illuminate the monuments, cities, and lore that shaped our nation.
Itinerary highlights include visits to the cities of the “Historic Triangle,” Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown; tours of Washington, D.C., our nation’s capital; Mount Vernon, George Washington’s 18th century home; and Annapolis, home to many of our Founding Fathers who signed the Declaration of Independence. Guests can visit our national monuments and take a private tour of the Smithsonian Museums. They can visit Harriet Tubman’s Underground Railroad exhibit or sail on an authentic “Skipjack” through the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. On board and on shore, this American Revolution cruise is a cultural experience not to be missed.
American Constitution has the largest staterooms in the industry, private furnished balconies, and all the finest cruising amenities. Guests will sail in complete comfort and splendor aboard this brand new, fully stabilized 2018 ship. American Constitution is the sister-ship to American Cruise Lines’ popular new 2017 ship American Constellation, which has moved to the West Coast to sail the Line’s Pacific Northwest itineraries in 2018.
