Voyage Around Florida Aboard Yorktown
April 4 – 14, 2014
Very few visitors experience all of these facets of Florida, but on this voyage, you will. In fact, exploring all of these different “Floridas” by ship is the ideal way to travel. It is much more relaxing and enjoyable, much more scenic, and certainly much more comfortable than traveling around the state by other means.
