Featuring several new ports of call in Washington D.C., Chestertown, Maryland, and Mt. Vernon, Virgina, American Cruise Lines’ new 11-day American Revolution Cruise visits some the nation’s most historically significant ports along the Chesapeake Bay.
In the nation’s capital, guests enjoy a guided tour of the National Mall or private tours of any of the Smithsonian Museums. In Chestertown, guests visit the Schooner Sultana, a replica of the Royal Naval Frigate Sultana that served in the British Navy from 1768 to 1772. At Mt. Vernon, the line’s experts guide visitors through George Washington’s Estate.
Guests will also have the opportunity to travel to the last battlefield of the Revolutionary War in Yorktown and the first English settlement in Jamestown. In addition to the onshore enrichment, American has secured Dr. Harold Cones, a professor of biology, emeritus at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virgina, as the onboard expert.
