We are thrilled to share some incredible news with you. Sisterhood Travels is delighted to announce that we are offering our Sisters a rare opportunity for a Colonial Heritage cruise aboard the Island Princess! This cruise will only be offered by Princess Cruise Lines once in 2025 so we know it will sell out very quickly.
This extraordinary itinerary embarks from the vibrant city of New York and includes captivating ports of call such as Charleston, Boston, Halifax (Nova Scotia), and a remarkable visit to Yorktown within Virginia’s Historic Triangle. This presents our Sisters with a unique chance to immerse themselves in the rich history of this coastal gem, as well as explore Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown—the very first permanent English Settlement in the Americas.
Our voyage is a historical treasure trove, offering experiences that paint a vivid picture of American history. You can embark on the American Revolution tour in Yorktown, delve into Fort Sumter and Charleston’s Naval History, or trace the footsteps of freedom on the renowned Freedom Trail in Boston. Furthermore, we’ll also delve into Canadian history with opportunities to uncover the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site in Nova Scotia, guided by a 78th Regiment Scottish Highlander.
Prepare to craft enduring memories, cultivate new bonds, and truly embrace the essence of sisterhood as we navigate these historic waters right up to the grand celebration of July 4th (who’s up for some fireworks?). Join us on this exhilarating journey, where every instant presents a chance to connect, explore, and savor the enchantment of The Sisterhood.
