Commemorating the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s journey

This is an East Coast US cruise with a difference, allowing you to immerse yourself in the foundations of modern America. 

On this cruise of a lifetime, follow in the historic wake of the Pilgrims who sailed from Plymouth aboard the Mayflower in search of the New World. To mark the 400th anniversary of their epic voyage and the founding of the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts, join the commemorations on both sides of the Atlantic and relive the story which shaped the foundations of America. You will get the chance to spend the anniversary of the departure in Plymouth, where special events include performances from the 1000 voice choir and Royal Marines Band, as well as a narration by celebrity speakers who will tell the story of the Mayflower’s remarkable journey. Fear not, for you there will be no arduous two-month crossing in cramped conditions; you will cruise in the lap of luxury to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States and pay Saga’s first-ever visit to Provincetown Harbor on Cape Cod.

You can look forward to an overnight stay in New York City, plus a visit to Martha’s Vineyard, known as a playground of the rich and famous from the Kennedys to the Obamas. On an overnight stay in Baltimore, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the capital of the United States. Home to an abundance of stunning architecture, moving memorials, government institutions and history, Washington DC will leave a lasting impression, and our Explore Ashore team are on hand to help you make the most of your visit. You will also stop overnight in Bermuda and visit Madeira on your way back to the UK.
