More than a Trans-Atlantic crossing, this port-intensive itinerary is a study in the wonder of nature, from the rugged beauty of North America to the intrigue of Iceland and the rolling green glens of the Emerald Isle.

Date Port Arrival Departure
Jun 12, Friday
New York City, New York, USA »   8 pm
Welcome to one of the world's most famous and exciting cities. Broadway, Times Square, the Empire State Building and Central Park are just some of the celebrated spectacles this bustling city has to offer. Giovanni da Verrazano was the first European to glimpse Manhattan Island in 1542, but the area was not explored until Henry Hudson arrived in 1609. It is said that Peter Minuit bought the entire island from Native Americans for $24 worth of beads and trinkets in 1629 - the biggest real estate bargain in history. In 1664 the Dutch surrendered to a British Fleet, and the town was renamed New York in honor of the Duke of York. George Washington was inaugurated here in 1789, and for a time, New York served as the country's capital. Since then, the city has grown spectacularly and has become one of the most exciting and electrifying cities in the country - not to mention one of the most rewarding to visit and explore.

Jun 14, Sunday
Bar Harbor, Maine, USA » 8 am 5 pm
Cradled off the craggy coast of Maine lies Mount Desert Island and the charming seaport town of Bar Harbor. Earlier last century, when it was the summer retreat of millionaires, it boasted magnificent estate homes, or "cottages," many of which were completely destroyed by the fire of 1947. However, some things never change. The priceless asset of the island's scenic beauty remains untouched by time. Vistas of emerald-green forests and rugged valleys from the superb vantage point of Mount Cadillac remain just as spectacular, and the rugged shoreline scenery is still as awe inspiring as it ever was. The choice is yours. Take a scenic drive through some of Maine's most spectacular scenery or stroll along the picturesque main street with its inviting shops and galleries. Perhaps you will choose to sample some of North America's most delectable seafood at an authentic lobster bake, or cruise the fascinating coastal area.
Jun 15, Monday
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada » 12 n 10 pm
As your Crystal ship approaches the pier, bagpipers bid a warm welcome to Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia and the most Scottish of all Canada’s great cities. Fall in love with Halifax’s architectural blend of old and new. The Citadel Fortress, which dates back to the city’s founding in 1749 with the present complex completed in 1856, stands over the thriving downtown area, where modern office and hotel blocks nestle alongside the exquisitely restored Historic Properties waterfront shopping area. Shoppers will delight in the authenticity of buys from colorful Scottish tartans to pewter and superb hand-knit woolens. Nova Scotians claim they have the freshest air and warmest smiles in Canada.

St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada » 9 am 5 pm
St. John's is the capital of Newfoundland and the largest city in the province. Surrounded by a narrow landlocked harbor on the east coast of the Avalon Peninsula it is the most easterly city in North America. This remarkable port city has experienced a long and colorful history. Europeans arrived in the 16th century to exploit nearby fishing grounds and have left an indelible print on the city. As such, St. John's is known as the oldest city founded by Europeans in North America and much of its history is steeped in legend. Although the most popular theory regarding the origin of the city's name dates back to John Cabot's 1497 arrival, the most likely source stems from Portuguese explorer Gaspar Corte-Real, who first visited the harbor in 1500 and named the distant Waterford River St. John's River. St. John's retains an Old World charm with its narrow winding streets similar to those in London and much of its architecture resembles that found in small Irish towns. The city boasts an impressive array of churches and parkland while spectacular vistas abound from Signal Hill and Cape Spear.

Reykjavík, Iceland » 8 am 10 pm
Isolated in a northern landscape of icy tranquility, Iceland is a land of volcanoes, hot springs, mountains, glaciers and northern lights. As the capital of Iceland, Reykjavík reflects this natural diversity with ancient maritime history as well as a thriving modern energy and sophistication.
Jun 22, Monday
Heimaey, Iceland » 8 am 4 pm
This island made international headlines in 1973 when a volcanic eruption destroyed most of the town. Fortunately, a fishing fleet was able to transport everyone on the island to safety. Since then, the town has been rebuilt, and it remains one of Iceland’s major fishing ports. It has also gained a reputation as a golfing paradise, with 62 courses on the island, including one par 70 championship course set inside a volcanic crater.

While it is home to only around 4,500 people, Heimaey does welcome 8 million visitors to its shores every summer – in the form of puffins. Indeed, seeing the soaring cliffs of the island completely covered in puffins will take your breath away.

Jun 25, Thursday
Dublin, Ireland » 8 am 12 m
The Irish capital, Dublin, enjoys one of the loveliest settings in Europe. Craggy Howth Head shelters the natural harbor at Dublin Bay and the gurgling River Liffey flows through the center of town. The ancient Egyptians, as well as Norman and Viking warriors, visited Dublin. However, the city's most pervasive surviving influences come from the 18th and 19th centuries when elegant Georgian mansions were first built along the river and then outward from its shores. The arts also flourished during this period and Dublin served as the birthplace of some of our greatest literary figures such as Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and James Joyce to name only a few.

Portland, England » 7 am 7 pm
In some ways, the “Isle” of Portland is a misnomer. Measuring about four miles long by one-and-a-half miles wide, the small land mass located in the English Channel is limestone tied, connected to the mainland by both a beach and bridge.

 

Discussions of whether Portland qualifies as an island aside, there is no doubt as to its historic significance. Part of the Jurassic Coast, Portland is a World Heritage Site, so designated for its geology and landforms. Important manmade forms include Portland Castle, built by King Henry the VIII in 1539. The structure remains one of the best preserved castles of the period. Portland’s famous white limestone, meanwhile, has found its way to London, with iconic buildings such as St. Paul’s Cathedral and the eastern front of Buckingham Palace constructed with the Portland limestone Sir Christopher Wren used to rebuild London after the Great Fire of 1666.

 

Jun 28, Sunday
London/Dover, England » 6 am*  
For centuries, Dover has been a symbol of England's royal fortitude. The port's legendary White Cliffs have long been a welcomed landmark for seafaring travelers. The solid Dover Castle has faced invasions by Roman, French and even English troops. London's legendary sights, including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Parliament Square, Whitehall and the fashionable West End, lie just 80 miles from historic Dover.

Note: Arrival and departure times for this port will depend on tidal restrictions.
