Excursion Description

Travel north of Boston to the historic seaside city of Salem, best known for its 17th century witchcraft hysteria. A scenic drive through Salem takes you along Chestnut Street, often called the “most beautiful street in America” for its unrivaled examples of Federal architecture. A visit will be made to the Salem Witch Museum where you visit its theater complete with state settings, figures, and voices of actors and actresses who accurately and dramatically present the true nature of the Witchcraft trials. 

Take in Salem’s picturesque Derby Wharf, dating back to the fabled China Trade period after the Revolution when Salem’s Yankee Clipper ships sailed around the globe to Canton and the South Seas, and Salem was the wealthiest city in the United States. Afterwards, you’ll have time to independently explore the historic buildings along the waterfront, snap a photo of Friendship, a replica clipper ship, or simply relax and browse the unique shops of Salem.

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore.
