From the Spanish colonial architecture of St. Augustine to the Gilded Age mansions of Palm Beach, from bohemian Key West to the wild Everglades, experience the best of Florida on this voyage around the peninsula. Glimpse wildlife of the marshes and reefs, sail spectacular waterways and learn about intriguing characters that have called the Sunshine State home.


• Experience lively, eclectic Key West, the southernmost city in the contiguous United States.
• Embark on a full-day excursion to Everglades National Park, home to magnificent wildlife from alligators to herons to panthers.
• Delve into the history of the U.S. space program at the famed Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles per day; some hilly, uneven terrain. Mobility is essential, as small boats and tenders are sometimes used for disembarkation and re-embarkation. There is no elevator on the ship.
