10 Night Cruise sailing from Amelia Island roundtrip aboard Victory I. Hotel stay pre-cruise in Jacksonville.

From the historic South to pristine beaches, a voyage from the Southeast coast to The Bahamas delivers just the right balance of excitement and relaxation. Charleston and Savannah offer a glimpse into coastal Southern living and architecture, while the islands of The Bahamas feature a tropical oasis just 50 miles from the U.S. coastline. On these incredible voyages, you will be able to enjoy included excursions that highlight each destination. Perhaps you have a specific interest that can be best served on a thoughtfully crafted premium experience.

Day 1 Jacksonville, FL
Experience a new brand of Southern hospitality in Jacksonville. This young and quirky city showcases the beauty in diversity. Contemporary urban areas and the undeveloped natural world accompany one another in creating its adventure-friendly landscape. White shorelines, neighborhood parks and a variety of bustling attractions bring a joie de vivre to this coastal town. Jacksonville piques curiosity, captures attention and demands exploration.

Day 2 Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach), FL
This Victorian-style seaport is the stomping ground of adventuresome legends. It tells tales of bootleggers and pirates, shrimpers and seamen. Downtown is an enchanting village that flaunts its historic district in rich, lovingly preserved architecture. Drink in some local spirit on an included visit to the Marlin & Barrel Distillery, with tastings and a behind-the-scenes look. The party continues at the Palace Saloon, and the Amelia Island Welcome Center and Shrimping Museum peer deep into the brine for insights on a crucial local industry.

Day 3 Brunswick, GA
In the anchor town serving the barrier Golden Isles, wander downtown Brunswick’s charming streets, lined with colorful Victorian architecture and swaying palms side by side with mossy oaks. Watch shrimp boats unload their fresh fare at the docks, and sample their catches in a rustic seafood shack or an upscale gastropub. Across the Marshes of Glynn, “heavenly woods and glades” memorialized by poet Sidney Lanier grace unspoiled, unhurried St. Simons Island, where an included tour visits the Lighthouse Museum and the A.W. Jones Heritage Center. At the World War II Home Front Museum, gain a rare glimpse into life during that time as it was lived in coastal Georgia among three critical military facilities.

Day 4 Savannah, GA
A stroll through one of the Savannah’s city squares provides the proper backdrop for a renaissance of emotion, and the collaborative efforts of its architectural artisans have inspired a Southern-gothic aesthetic different from that of any other place. This pedestrian-friendly city is where the little things – breweries and mustard-based barbeque, live oaks and lighthouses – come together to create a mighty experience. Be enticed by the bounty of the centuries-old City Market and explore history at Davenport House and other intriguing highlights on an included narrated tour through the cobblestone streets.

Day 5 Charleston, SC
Along the southern coast of South Carolina rests Charleston, boasting a unique blend of casual and sophisticated in the ever-present beauty of its blooming culture. This charming port features a maze of recreation ripe for travelers to navigate. Eyes light up at the spectacle of the candy-colored waterfront houses on Rainbow Row, and guests love surveying the ocean from the scenic seawall promenade of The Battery. These highlights and others make for an engaging included tour.

Day 6 Beaufort (Port Royal), SC
Beaufort blends Lowcountry lifestyle with coastal sightlines to craft a unique atmosphere. Antebellum architecture still stands, and reminds locals to embrace the Southern hospitality that their community was built upon. The sometimes-tumultuous history of this charming place comes alive at included tour stops such as the Santa Elena History Center, Beaufort National Cemetery and the local history museum. Embrace the present – and grab a few gifts – on a shopping trip downtown.

Day 7 Jacksonville (St Augustine), FL
Nearly five centuries have built upon one another to construct modern St. Augustine. The city is America’s oldest, and embraces its connection to the past. Brick-lined streets, horse-drawn carriages and century-old buildings reflect the town’s multicultural heritage. Its contrasts only enhance the experience; this old city gives way to a youthful aura – from a modern art encounter to a sip from Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth. This ever-popular vacation destination is alive with history, brimming with sightseeing opportunities and simply waiting to be explored.

Day 8 Scenic Sailing on the Atlantic Ocean
Ah, another day on the vast Atlantic Ocean – a day to rise with the sun and meet with friends in the restaurant of your choosing over breakfast…or sleep in and order room service. Gather in the Compass Lounge for snacks and games…or take in the view from deck with your favorite cocktail in hand. This day is yours to craft as you desire.

Day 9 West Palm Beach, FL
From the historic charm of Clematis Street, with its boutiques, galleries, clubs and markets, to stunning public gardens and enriching museums, West Palm Beach beckons with eclectic architecture and a casual energy.

Day 10 Freeport, Bahamas
Rainbow – laden waterfalls and underwater caves beg travelers to embrace a childlike wonder of the world. Wander through beachfronts dewed with tidal pools and sand ripples as polychromatic fowl fly overhead. Dive into cool water to explore the mind-blowing communities of coral reefs under the surface. Stories of sea life flow freely through Freeport, and today, you’ll write your own.

Day 11 Scenic Sailing on the Atlantic Ocean
Set your cares adrift as the Victory I gently plies the waters, surrounded by seemingly endless horizon, on this relaxing day of ocean cruising.

Day 12 Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach), FL
As the journey concludes, there are additional opportunities for you to take in the seaport.

The indisputable joy of sailing is brought to life on the M/V Victory I and II, agile intimate ships that easily navigate canals and locks, tranquil bays, and hidden ports where larger ships dare not go. Onboard, our fresh, modern design tips its hat to our maritime past as spacious open-air lounges, inviting dining venues, and generous windows ensure you never miss a chance to savor the spectacular view.

With a caring crew of 84, pampering no more than 202 guests, you’ll feel at home from the moment you step on board. Whether it’s a favorite cocktail served on deck or the delicate chocolate on your pillow ensuring sweet dreams, our attentive, intuitive staff are available whenever you need them. Serving you is our pleasure.

Aboard the M/V Victory I and II, you’ll often travel in the company of engaging specialists focusing on areas where our journey takes us.
