Next year's Canada and New England deployment from Princess Cruises will extend a bit farther south than most travel advisors are used to. For the first time ever, the line will offer a series of Colonial Heritage itineraries departing from New York City and featuring Yorktown, Virginia, along with a stop in Charleston, South Carolina, along with Boston and Halifax.
The Colonial Heritage itineraries will only be available in June 2024, will be either 10 or 11 days long, and will be onboard Island Princess. Voyages go on sale May 25, 2023.
Other firsts on next year's Canada and New England sailings are a unique 17-day itinerary aboard Emerald Princess that combines the best of the East Coast with three day-long visits to ports in Greenland.
"The upcoming 2024 Canada & New England cruise and cruisetour program is highlighted by the debut of new summer Colonial Heritage voyages with visits to Yorktown and cruises sailing in and out of Boston," said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. "We know history buffs and seafood enthusiasts are going to love this collection of enticing voyages that tell the story of our American and Canadian history."
