Hudson River Fall Foliage

Day 1 - New York (USA)

Embark your ship in New York City and set sail for the Hudson River region.

Day 2 - West Point

AThe United States Military Academy at West Point offers visitors the opportunity to walk on the hallowed grounds once traversed by some of the nation's greatest generals. Founded in 1802 by an act of Congress, the Academy has been of significant military importance to America. Tour the West Point Museum and Cadet Chapel, while viewing magnificent vistas of the Hudson Valley from atop the campus grounds.

Day 3 - Kingston

When the steamboat debuted in 1807, the Hudson River became a waterway of leisurely travel. Kingston preserves the heritage of the region at the Hudson River Maritime Museum. Kingston is also located in an area of the Hudson River often referred to as "Millionaires Row," replete with palatial estates and grand mansions built by wealthy New York businessmen as a summer retreat.

Day 4 - Hyde Park

Due to Hyde Park’s natural beauty and proximity to the city, families such as the Astors and Vanderbilts built weekend homes nearby. The area is most famously known as the birthplace of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and is the site of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, as well as his home, Springwood Estate, which is designated as a National Historic Site.

Day 5 - Troy / Albany

The city of Albany was discovered by Henry Hudson in 1609 on a failed attempt to find an expedited passage to China for the Dutch East India Company. Today, the capital city of New York welcomes visitors with majestic architecture and grand views of the beautiful Hudson River Valley. Be sure to explore the New York State Museum and the newly renovated State Capitol building, originally built in the late 1800s.

Day 6 - Catskill

The scenic beauty of the Catskills has long been an inspiration to artists, writers, and naturalists who draw inspiration from its tranquil forests and expansive mountain landscapes. Explore the Hudson River School Art Trail, which includes the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill village, and sites like Kaaterskill Falls and Sunset Rock, which inspired 19th-century landscape painters.

Day 7 - Sleepy Hollow

The riverside town of Sleepy Hollow is forever immortalized in the works of one of the country's first great writers, Washington Irving.
