The SS United States Conservancy is pleased to announce an wonderful cruising opportunity and a chance to support the preservation of the SS United States and support the SS United States Conservancy's growing curatorial collections.
While we wish we could fire up the engines and pull up the gangways and set sail together aboard America's Flagship, the Pollin Group and the Conservancy have partnered to offer the next best thing: A 7-night cruise sailing in May 2018 to Bermuda aboard the Celebrity Summit.
The cruise will depart from Cape Liberty (Bayonne, New Jersey) on Sunday, May 6 and will make port at King's Wharf, Bermuda on May 9 for a two-night stay. The ship will return to New Jersey on Sunday, May 13.
This amazing cruise will include:
Festive social gatherings featuring the music, dance and fashion of the transatlantic liner era.
Riveting talks on design, innovation and "the way things work" by award-winning author and illustrator David Macaulay.
Special presentation by Susan Gibbs, the SS United States Conservancy's executive director and granddaughter of the SS United States' designer, William Francis Gibbs.
The cruise will also offer additional talks spotlighting the SS United States' history, design and celebrity passengers, mid-century art and design, and the transatlantic ocean liner era and the race for the Blue Riband.

The Celebrity Summit is a Millennium Class ship with many award-winning "Solstice Class" features. The Ship, which received a grand makeover in March 2016, has the privilege of being captained by the first American woman to command a cruise ship, Captain Kate McCue.
