Downeast Maine Cruise

Bangor, ME to Bangor, ME


8 Days / 7 Nights

Cruise Overview

Most people know the cardinal directions, but "DownEast" is specific to Maine. Originally, it described the path sailing ships took from New York and Boston, moving downwind and eastward. Over time, it has also come to symbolize the independent spirit and unique character of the people in this part of the northeastern coast. 

This 8-day adventure from Bangor, Maine, is filled with astonishing scenery, intriguing tales, and the freshest seafood you can imagine. Begin in Belfast, where you can gaze at the spectacular homes of old sea captains and wander a lively waterfront scuttling with activity. Then, head over to Rockland for an epic lobster feast on the sandy shores, all set to the upbeat strums of a local bluegrass band. As the day fades, take an evening cruise in Bar Harbor, where the sunset views over Acadia National Park are simply out of this world.

Sail in style to Bath aboard our brand-new, catamaran-inspired ships. Dubbed the “City of Ships” uncover its riveting maritime stories with an expert-led walk through the city. Venture to Boothbay to roam through the sprawling grounds of New England’s biggest botanical garden with a seasoned naturalist. Disembark in the quirky hometown of horror maestro Stephen King and the historic “lumber capital of the world.”
