Bar Harbor, Grand Tour Of Acadia National Park & Lobsterbake
The undeniable beauty and majesty of Acadia National Park is just a short hop from Bar Harbor but it probably feels like another world. After boarding your air-conditioned transportation at the pier, you'll travel along the Park's scenic Loop Road that encircles Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park. Stop at the Hull's Cove Visitor Center and explore the extensive diorama of the park, collect maps, and trace the route you are about to take before setting off into the reserve. Sit back and relax as you pass by the many beautiful carriage roads and hand-cut stone bridges. You'll continue past famous sights including Jordan Pond House, and Otter Cliffs, before arriving at Cadillac Mountain, named for French explorer Sieur de la Mothe Cadillac, who migrated from France and settled in Maine during the 17th century, (and later moved west and established a little town called Detroit).  Cadillac Mountain rises 1,532 feet above Mount Desert Island. It's not only the tallest mountain in Acadia but is the highest point along North America's eastern seaboard and from October to March it's the first spot in the U.S. to see the morning sun. It may be windy up at the top but a walk up to the summit rewards you with dramatic 360-degree views of Bar Harbor, Frenchman Bay, and the Cranberry Islands. Then it's on to another natural wonder: Thunder Hole. This small inlet is famous for the thunderous clap that occurs when seawater crashes into the tiny inlet and water is forced out. If you decide to take a photo, be prepared to get soaked, the waterspout can explode as high as 40 feet! On your way to the restaurant you'll travel through picturesque Seal Beach. Once at the restaurant you'll enjoy a buffet lunch that includes lobster (steak is available for those who do not prefer lobster), clam chowder, corn on the cob, potato salad, coleslaw, and your choice of blueberry dessert or cake.

Charleston, Taste of Charleston Walking Tour
Charleston is rich in both history and food.  The rice which was grown here in the 1700s and 1800s made this city the wealthiest in Colonial America.  This wealth allowed the planters who grew the rice and the merchants and factors who marketed and transported it to entertain lavishly with sumptuous banquets.  The enslaved Africans who were brought here to work the rice fields brought with them the sweet potato, the benne seed, okra, and collard greens among other southern favorites. Along with settlers from England Charleston’s population included French Huguenots, Sephardic Jews, and settlers from the Germanic countries, from Scotland and from Ireland.  All of these groups contributed to Charleston cuisine.  Today Charleston has over 700 restaurants and fantastic chefs, many of whom have been awarded the coveted James Beard award for excellence.  These chefs use not only beef and pork which were the most popular meats in the 1700s but also seafood which was abundant in the low country. Many chefs also embrace the farm to table philosophy and outsource to local and regional farms. On this special walking tour you will not only learn about the rich history of the city and the way that Charleston cuisine is related to that history but you will have the opportunity to visit some downtown culinary gems: the establishment of one of Charleston's fine chef, and  several other interesting food purveyors.

Vieques, Concierge Collection: Evening Bio Bay Kaykaing
Welcome to the brightest documented bio bay in the world. The very narrow inlet to the bay and shallow depth throughout promote the high salinity that the dinoflagellates (these are the micro-organisms that create the luminescence) need to prosper.  Red mangroves thrive on the edges of the bay and release the vitamin B-12 that these organisms need.  This bay has also been protected from development that could potentially produce light pollution that would take away from the brightness of the bay. You will be given a life vest and board 2-person kayaks to paddle approximately ¾ of a mile one way on the bay and use the wind to assist your return. The kayak tour will begin at dusk so you can see and learn about the mangroves and bay that provide the environment to support the bioilluminescence.  The kayak tour will continue after dark for you to experience the water sparkle around you; an experience like no other.   

Please  note: Wear casual clothes that can get wet, swimsuits are optional. Watershoes are preferred, and all other shoes will be removed at shore.

Pigeon Island, Sea Trek Helmet Diving
Imagine walking in zero gravity while surrounded by incredible aquatic life - that’s Sea Trek!  Sea Trekking is as close as it gets to the sensations of walking in space.  Take a walk on the “wet” side which brings you face to face with the marvel of marine life.  Your tour will begin from the gently sloping sandy beach at Pigeon Island.  All Sea Trek tours begin with a medical questionnaire and safety briefing.  You will be equipped with a specially designed Sea Trek helmet, which sits comfortably on your shoulders. Trekkers breathe freely underwater from a continuous flow of air pumped in to the back of the helmet through a hose attached to a pod system. There are no masks, no mouthpieces, no stress and no complications. You can even wear your prescription glasses, as your entire head stays dry throughout your underwater adventure.  Pre-certification is not necessary and swimming skills are not required. If you can walk and breathe, you can Sea Trek.  Just relax on the beach afterwards before heading back to the ship. 

Please note: Due to a natural environment, there is never a 100% guarantee that a particular species of marine life will be seen.  Bring towels, swimwear underneath your clothing, sunscreen, cameras and US cash if you wish to purchase additional beverages at the Jambe Des Bois restaurant in the park.

St. Georges, Golden Nutmeg & Diamond Chocolate Tour
This aromatic tour will allow you to learn about Grenada Nutmeg and organic chocolate production. You will head toward the island's west coast and visit the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station to discover how nutmegs are harvested, processed, and exported. Well protected behind high walls, you will travel one century back in time. No conveyor belts, no machines. The long processing chain of this precious spice starts off in the hands and nimble fingers of the experienced, diligent and incredible ‘’Mammas.’’  After, you will visit the Diamond Chocolate Plant which produces the “Jouvay” organic chocolate now ranked in the top 10 best chocolates in the world by National Geographic. The quality of the beans, the distinct taste and the country’s rich history of cocoa production have inspired L. A. Burdick Chocolate to partner with Grenada’s knowledgeable independent cocoa farmers in building a cocoa processing facility. After harvesting the beans, all fermentation, sorting, drying, roasting and conching is done on the premises of the factory. A visit to the cocoa tree garden and a rare and delicious chocolate tasting and sampling will conclude this enjoyable tour of one of the most amazing sites in the Caribbean. 

Please note:  This tour is appropriate for guests who are able to walk about 100 yards and must be able to walk on and off the motor coach unattended. Tour order may vary.

St. Georges, Walking Tour
Experience the hustle and bustle of the picturesque capital of Grenada by comfortably strolling through its quaint streets.  You will begin your tour with a brief stroll through Fort George for some incredible views before you walk through the Sendall Tunnel, which was constructed to facilitate travel between alternate ends of the city in 1894. The tunnel was named for Sir Walter Sendall, who was a British Colonial Governor. Just around the corner is the Grenada National Museum which is housed in a building which served as the French barracks from 1704. It later became two different hotels under different owners. Once you reach the north end of The Carenage, get your cameras ready as it is said to be the most picturesque harbor in the Caribbean and this vantage point will offer you some great photo opportunities. Next you will make your way to Church Street; The Catholic, Anglican and Presbyterian Churches, all built around the 1800s, can all be found here and you will notice that some were damaged by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and are now mere remnants. From here you will venture down the famous Market Hill, whose slopes resemble those of San Francisco and then walk around the Market Square where you will see fresh fruits and vegetables and spices being sold. Here you will be served a refreshing drink before heading back to the ship.

Bridgetown: Barbados Island Tour with Airport Transfer
Your tour will begin with a leisurely drive along the Gold Coast, home to many wealthy residents, and will take you to the stunning area of Bathsheba.  This is where the Atlantic surf pounds the coastline and it is a famous spot for international and local surfing competitions.  A walk on the beach is a must. Heading into the hills, you will arrive at St. John’s Church. There are stunning views from the churchyard - a perfect photo opportunity.  The church contains an interesting sculpture depicting the Madonna and Child with the infant St. John. The graveyard contains the tomb of Ferdinand Paleologus, a descendant of the Byzantine Imperial family. The present building was constructed in 1836, and the pulpit is constructed from six different kinds of wood: ebony, locust, Barbados mahogany, manchineel, oak and pine. Through sleepy country villages and sugar cane fields,  you will make your way to Sunbury House dating back to 1650. The house was destroyed by fire in 1995, and was gracefully restored and re-opened in 1996. It possesses one of the country's superior collections of antiques. The cellar houses a unique collection of antique carriages, the largest collection in the Caribbean, as well as many items used in the domestic life of the plantation. It also houses a very old collection of optical machinery and sight testing equipment, some of the first to come to the West Indies including the first lens grinding plant.  Enjoy a light deli-style lunch with a complimentary rum or fruit punch.  A short drive will take you to the airport where you will be met and assisted with your luggage and airline check-in.

Please note: There are about 20 steps to climb at Sunbury House and 10 steps down to the cellar. This tour will end with a drop off at the Grantley Adams International Airport or the Accra Beach Hotel.
