Ports of Call

Cape Liberty, NJ (New York, NY) - Cape Liberty Cruise Port is located on the New York Harbor in Bayonne, New Jersey, and is just seven miles from New York City and three miles from Newark Liberty International Airport. Its waterfront location and close proximity to the Big Apple allow visitors easy access to everything New York City has to offer along with providing access to the historic roots of Northern New Jersey. Convenient guest parking is located adjacent to the cruise terminal.

Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts - This island, just south of Cape Cod, is one of the oldest settled and continually inhabited places in the United States and is steeped in rich colonial culture and quirky charm. The long, sweeping sandy beaches in Martha’s Vineyard are straight out of an oil painting, with picturesque lighthouses dotted along the shores and grand mansions adorning the nearby streets. Take a trip around the island to see wildlife reserves, lush farmland, historic monuments and fishing villages backed by rolling sand dunes. You’re never far from the sea here, with fishing boats, swish marinas and enticing seafood restaurants at every turn. Come for the beaches, but explore the island’s culture and cuisine at the same time.

Charleston, South Carolina - Charleston is a timeless treasure of America’s Old South— and every aspect of life in the Lowcountry is captivating. Whether you’re a history buff, beach bum or foodie, there’s plenty of adventure and southern hospitality to go round. Hop in a horse-drawn carriage for a sightseeing ride past pastel-hued mansions on Rainbow Row. Roam Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the American Civil War rang out. Cruise to Charleston and stand under the 1,500-year-old Angel Oak. Or sink your toes into soft sands along the Carolina coast. Aptly nicknamed “The Holy City” for its abundance of churches, Charleston evokes a genuine American spirit through its colonial relics, laid-back coastal culture and deep-rooted traditions.

Royal Naval Dockyard, Bermuda - Located at the tip of Bermuda's West End, Royal Naval Dockyard is home to exceptional shopping and pristine beaches. The beautifully restored Royal Navy Dockyards provide quaint boutique, a crafts market and fascinating maritime museum. Don't miss the chance to try out one of the many water sports offered in and around this gorgeous harbor. View Shopping Guide (Current shopping maps available onboard.)
