Cape Codder Cruise



Due to weather and sea conditions, the ship didn’t depart from Boston Harbor as intended.  After the usual 15-minute COVID test and a coach tour of Boston, the coach drove to New Bedford where the ship was docked.  This resulted in rearranging the planned port calls a little, but nothing had to be dropped from the itinerary.

This was my fourth cruise on the American Constitution, and also the fourth cruise with Captain Eric Sullivan in charge.  Several of the other crew, officers, etc. were also on previous cruises.

Details on the cruise and excursion options are on the American Cruise Lines website.  I’ve included their descriptions in italics for the excursions that I actually did, usually one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The photos on each page are geotagged, so if you care you can see where each was taken, usually to within a few meters.  I haven’t edited them in any way.  The photos have been size-reduced for the web, but I’d be happy to send you full-size individual photos, or a DVD with all of the photos.  I’ve also added a map showing where each day’s photos were taken.

Most of the photos were taken on my iPhone, and a few on my Sony compact camera.  The iPhone has a great camera, but sometimes it’s hard to see the screen outdoors, and/or the Sony has 25x optical zoom.

To see the photos for each day, use the links at the top of each page.
