Program #20811RJ
12 Days | 11 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Each spring, the American South becomes a lush garden awaiting exploration. Savor the colors, aromas and new life of the season as you voyage to colonial cities and palatial plantations and find historic and hidden treasures.


Highlights

• Expert-led walks in Savannah introduce you to the city’s 21 open squares brimming with azaleas, palmettos, English yews, and giant oaks.
• Discover the magnificent antebellum homes and gardens of Charleston and the South Carolina Lowcountry.
• Discover the formal gardens of Tryon Palace, where three centuries of gardening history are on display.


Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles per day, some on uneven terrain. Standing for up to two hours at a time, up to four hours a day. Mobility is essential, as small boats and tenders are sometimes used for disembarkation and re-embarkation. There is no elevator on the ship and stairs are unavoidable.
