Why a Cruise to the Caribbean? 

In 1776 there were 26, not just 13, British Colonies in the Americas, which included six Colonies in the Caribbean. All were subject to the Stamp Act embargos imposed by Great Britain. The growing trade between the 13 Colonies and the French, Dutch and Spanish Colonies of the Caribbean was curtailed by the Stamp Act and put a strangle-hold on the Colonial economy, which resulted in a thriving black-market trade. Join us while we unravel the stories of this important chapter in our history. We will spend seven days absorbing the rich history of the Southern Caribbean Islands and their important connection to the American Revolution.

Cruise booking Deadline is July 30, 2018, so put on your sea-legs and join the Daughters and crew ready to set sail!
