Yorktown VA cruise ship stop

Yorktown will again play host to a number of cruise ships this fall, including one high-end luxury ship that has chosen to feature the village as a stop on its Historic Atlantic cruise.

Travel Dynamics International’s newly refurbished Clelia II will be docking at Riverwalk Landing’s T-Pier on Sunday, Oct. 4. The 290-foot boat will likely attract attention as it unloads 100 passengers into the Riverwalk area.

The 11-day cruise travels the Atlantic Coast from Nova Scotia to West Palm Beach, FL and, in addition to Yorktown, includes stops in Portland, Newport, Annapolis, Charleston, and Savannah.

Travel Dynamics International bills the cruise as an educational journey. Their Web site says that “This unique voyage offers a wide-ranging, thoughtful and delightful rejoinder to the critique—often made by Americans themselves—that their nation is without its history.” 

  cleliaIIThis unique voyage offers a wide-ranging, thoughtful and delightful rejoinder to the critique—often made by Americans themselves—that their nation is without its history. Departing from Halifax, we sail first to the charming shoreline city of Portland, then on to Gilded Age mansions of Newport, Rhode Island, and the naval heritage of Annapolis, Maryland en route to the birthplace of our nation, Yorktown VA  and Colonial Williamsburg, America’s premier living museum. In Charleston, South Carolina, we will take in the enchanting atmosphere of Palmetto trees and wrought-iron balustrades during the perfect October weather, and we will tour Savannah, Georgia’s oldest city, saved by Lincoln from Sherman’s predations and by more recent preservationists from the advances of “modernization.”

The stop at Riverwalk Landing will afford guests the opportunity to visit Yorktown and other points of interest in the HisRiverwalkYorktown-Landing-from-rivertoric Triangle.

The Clelia II is just one of several dockings at Yorktown’s pier during the autumn months.  Yorktown continues to gain popularity as a small-ship cruising port-of-call, which in turn helps to boost tourism throughout the area. 

The tentative Yorktown port call schedule for the fall is as follows:
        *9/27/09  – American Eagle
        *10/4/09  – American Eagle
        *10/4/09  – Clelia II
        *10/11/09 – American Eagle
        *10/18/09 – American Eagle
        *10/26/09 – American Star
        *11/2/09  – American Spirit
        *11/8/09  – American Spirit
