Start off this wonderful tour by getting to know the historic district of Bar Harbor. We'll drive around Old Bar Harbor and then we're off to the top of Cadillac Mountain! Cadillac Mountain is 1,530 feet high, which provides stunning 360 degree views of the island and even your ship in the harbor.

Next. it's on to Sieur de Monts Springs to view the lovely nature center and gardens. You'll also see Bear Brook--a large beaver pond with lots of lodges and dams, Precipice Cliffs with its 1,000 foot open cliff range and peregrine falcons, and Sand Beach's beautiful pink sand surrounded by rocky cliffs!

We're then off to Thunder Hole--a naturally carved granite inlet that explodes as the water rushes in, Otter Cliffs, and Sand Beach. Explore communities of Seal Harbor and Northeast Harbor, which are the summer colonies of the ultra-rich such as Rockefellers, Vanderbilt, Astors, and Martha Stewart.

See the amazing mansions and beautiful harbors, and the famous Thuya and Asticou Gardens. We'll then travel down to Southwest Harbor to eat at an authentic Lobster Pound for lunch!

Many restaurants claim to be a pound where lobster boats bring their catch to be weighed, but really there are only a couple on the island that actually serve lobster. We'll go to one where the locals typically go. See the boats come in and out while you eat lobster either inside or outside on the pier.

Lunch includes a lobster, corn on the cob, coleslaw, a medium beverage, and dessert. We'll conclude the tour by taking you to the historic Bass Harbor Headlight and Acadia's natural rock seawall.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
