American Canadian Caribbean Line (ACCL), a family-operated casual small ship cruise line popular with active mature travelers, announces $500 off per couple on two select itineraries aboard the 96-passenger M/V Grande Caribe. This special cruise savings offer ends April 15, 2010.
The Southern Antebellum cruise, sailing on April 27, 2010 (7 nights), offers travelers the opportunity to enjoy rich history, natural beauty and southern hospitality while cruising from Jacksonville, FL to Charleston, SC. Embark at Jacksonville’s Northbank Riverwalk dock and discover a vibrant, revitalized entertainment complex. Stop in Beaufort, SC and Savannah, GA where stately antebellum mansions, magnolia trees and horse-drawn carriages await. Take an optional tour of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist or the Juliette Gordon Low House – the elegantly restored birthplace of this Girl Scouts USA founder, located in the heart of the Savannah Historic District. Trace Civil War heritage trails, spectacular 18th century estates, and graceful old southern plantation homes. Explore St. Simons, Jekyll and Amelia Island with their natural beaches and scenic delights, or walk the gentle salt marshes of the Cumberland Island National Seashore. Fares start at $1,995 per person/double occupancy.
The Atlantic Coastal Waterways cruise (14 nights) sails May 18, 2010 between Jacksonville, FL and Warren, RI. Cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway visiting multiple cities including Savannah GA, Charleston SC, Norfolk VA and Baltimore MD before reaching the final destination of ACCL’s homeport, Warren, RI. Explore colonial seaports, picturesque coastal towns, and the largest naval installation in the world. Taste fresh-steamed Baltimore crabs and tour Newport’s elegant and breathtaking mansions of the Gilded Age. Fares start at $3,885 per person/double occupancy.
ACCL offers travelers itineraries packed with friendly coastal communities while cruising up-close to some of America’s most picturesque and historical scenery. Family operated since 1966, ACCL navigates areas usually only accessible by private boat. Different by design, the cruise line fleet is custom built by ACCL’s sister company, Blount Boats, each with a retractable pilothouse and bow ramp to offer unmatched accessibility.
“May is a perfect time to spend two leisurely weeks onboard our ship to really enjoy the sights along the way,” states Nancy Blount, ACCL president. “In particular, the region between Jacksonville and Charleston is so rich in history and scenic beauty that we carved out a special 7-night itinerary from our larger Atlantic Coastal Waterways cruise several years ago just for our passengers. With our uncrowded viewing decks, engaging discussions in our lounge areas, photography workshops and kayaks on board, ACCL’s small ship cruises are sure to please.”
Fares do not include port charges, fuel charges, gratuities and, in some cases, tours. ACCL Reservations Team Members are available to offer assistance Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (EDT) by calling 800.556.7450. For ACCL’s complete 2010 schedule, visit accl-smallships.com.
