Princess Cruises is expanding its 2024 cruises to include a first-time series of Colonial Heritage itineraries featuring Yorktown, part of Virginia’s History Triangle.

Other stops include charming and history-rich Charlestown, South Carolina, as well as Boston and Halifax aboard Island Princess sailing round-trip from New York next summer.

“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,” John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises, said in a news release.

Debuting in 2024, Princess’ new summer Colonial Heritage itineraries from New York City are highlighted by the cruise industry’s first-ever stops in Yorktown, a historically significant and picturesque town that serves as the gateway to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas.

The voyages are a perfect lead up to Sestercentennial celebrations marking the 250th birthday of the Uniting States making this can’t miss sailing for history buffs.

Charleston, Boston and Halifax also are included in Island Princess’ 10-and 11-day itineraries which take place in June 2024.

The 2024 Canada & New England cruise and cruisetour season includes 17 total departures from Boston, New York, Quebec and Ft. Lauderdale, visiting 25 destinations and 11 itineraries, sailing on three cruise ships – Emerald Princess, Enchanted Princess and Island Princess.

Options for guests wishing to spend more time exploring historic cities and monuments include two in-depth cruisetours, combining a scheduled 2024 cruise with multiple days on land.

The cruisetours include:

Historic America Cruisetour – with seven nights on land, guests visit U.S. Capital Washington D.C., Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate, Colonial Williamsburg, Independence Hall in Philadelphia and the Gettysburg Battlefield.

The Maple Explorer Cruisetour – brings guests to beautiful Niagara Falls; exciting cities like the capital of Ottawa and French-flavored Montreal with guided tours of the Canadian Museum of Civilization, dazzling cathedrals and the historic 19th century Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
