day 1 & 2
Depart home city/ New York, New York/ Embark the ship
Begin your journey in the iconic New York City as you immerse yourself in the best it has to offer. Enjoy included excursions such as a tour of the West Village or Lower Manhattan and the 9/11 Memorial. Embark the Silver Shadow.

Bar Harbor, Maine
One of the first spots in the United States to see the first slivers of honey-colored light each morning, Bar Harbor was the escape of choice for 19th century elite who flocked here to indulge in cool, salty sea breezes, and sweeping coastal scenery. Discover this elegant seashore town with a wander along Shore Path, taking the looping stroll out along the bay to spot the Porcupine Islands, or visit Acadia National park including a lobster lunch.
Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada
At the heart of the southwest coast of Nova Scotia lies the pretty little town of Shelburne. Founded in 1873 by Loyalists fleeing the American Civil War, it was briefly one of the largest locales in North America, bigger even than Halifax or Montreal. The story of Black Loyalists, who had been promised their freedom in return for aiding the British cause, is told in the Black Loyalist Heritage Centre, which you can opt to visit on this stop. Looking away from the town at the picturesque bay, the Sandy Point Lighthouse has been standing guard since it was built in 1873 and is accessible on foot at low tide.
