April 30, 2019 Cruise Deals No Comments

This September 2019, get ready to immerse yourself in the rich history and epic horizons of America’s Deep South, the Caribbean and Mexico, with ecruising’s spectacular 15-night CRUISETOUR: Southern Belle & the Western Caribbean Glory.

Comprising an 8-night land tour of some of the United States’ most iconic southern states, followed by a 7-night cruise on Carnival Glory through the crystal waters of the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Mexico’s Cozumel Island, this fascinating itinerary is guaranteed to educate, impress and inspire.

Your journey begins in Atlanta, Georgia on 28 September 2019, where you will enjoy 2 nights discovering one of the jewels of the southern United States. Treat yourself to a tour of a city steeped in history and learn about one of its most famous residents, Margaret Mitchell, author of the epic historical novel, Gone with the Wind; visit the Stately Oaks Plantation, the inspiration for the book’s Tara estate; and drop into the Road to Tara Museum, with its impressive collection of memorabilia from the Gone with the Wind movie.

From Atlanta, you’ll travel west to Charleston in South Carolina, taking in a visit to Augusta, home to the world-famous Masters Golf Tournament, along the way. Spend several days exploring the perfectly preserved historic district of the United States’ oldest city and take a trip to nearby historic Boone Hall Plantation, frequently featured in film and television including the acclaimed North and South mini-series.

As your journey heads further south, stroll through the leafy streets of Beaufort, South Carolina’s second oldest city, with its impressive antebellum architecture, which has provided the backdrop to myriad Hollywood movies including Forrest Gump; and immerse yourself in the charming historic district of Georgia’s Savannah with its tree-shaded squares and thriving cafés and restaurant scene.

Next stop is the sunshine state of Florida and a chance to admire the exquisite Spanish colonial architecture of St Augustine, the gentle hills of Tallahassee and sandy shorelines of Pensacola, founded in 1599 by Spanish colonists. Your tour concludes in the celebrated Louisiana city of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz. With its unique blend of Spanish, French, Caribbean, African and Anglo-Saxon influences, New Orleans offers up a truly sensory experience. Explore the famous Louisiana Plantations, savour delicious Creole cuisine or indulge in a little retail therapy at the many tempting galleries and shops along Royal Street.

On 6 October 2019 prepare to set forth on the next phase of your journey, as you embark on a 7-night Caribbean cruise on board the superbly appointed Glory, with its fantastic selection of restaurants, duty free shops and nightclubs, not to mention 3 swimming pools and a spectacular giant 214-foot waterslide.

Cruise highlights include stopovers at Jamaica’s Montego Bay, its craggy coastline protecting a tropical paradise of mountains, rainforests and reef-lined beaches; Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, home to the ruins of colonial-era Fort George, stunning beaches and vibrant coral reefs; and the island of Cozumel off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, a divers’ paradise thanks to its striking collection of submerged ancient Mayan sculptures and majestic whale sharks; before disembarking in New Orleans on 13 October 2019.

Priced from just $4,889 per person twin share for a limited time, ecruising’s 15-night CRUISETOUR: Southern Belle & the Western Caribbean Glory journey includes return international economy airfares, all accommodation, transfers and tours as per itinerary.
