Sunday, May 2 & 9

Spring in Manhattan. Totally awesome. No matter how you approach your visit to the city, it surprises, inspires, and stimulates you. Museums, fabulous dining, ultimate urban walks, historic sites, performing arts, city park pleasures, and people watching abound and get you into the flow of New York.

MacMania will offer four fabulous pre-cruise “trips” the day, and evening, before we board our ship. We’ll start with a casual gathering at one of Neil’s favorite watering holes, mid-afternoon on Saturday, May 1. From there we’ll walk a few blocks to officially kick-off MacMania 10 with our 90-minute pre-cruise cocktail party — open bar and plenty of food. After our party we’ll walk off a few calories as we head downtown to visit Apple’s most impressive retail store — the 5th Avenue Store (across the street from Central Park). But our pre-cruise day is hardly over! Our final stop, the Empire State Building — a one-and-a-quarter-mile stroll from “The Mecca at Central Park” — stays open until 11:30pm. And there’s nothing like the midnight lights of New York City from 1000 feet up!

ST. GEORGE’S, BERMUDA — Tuesday & Wednesday, May 4–5

What qualifies an entire town for UNESCO World Heritage Site status? For St. George’s (est.1612) it was both British charm — stone buildings, neatly bricked streets, heraldic signs — and the British Army and Royal Navy military installations that protected it through the centuries. Among the town’s many historic strongholds is Fort Catherine, housing breathtaking replicas of Britain’s Crown Jewels.

Many of the historic sites in Bermuda (as opposed to water sports sites, art gallery areas, and garden/nature sites) are in the vicinity of St. George’s.

The wreck of the 17th-century English sailing ship Sea Venture at Bermuda is widely believed to be one of the elements which inspired William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest.

HAMILTON, BERMUDA — Wednesday–Friday, May 5–7

Bermuda's commercial and governmental hub lies in the city of Hamilton. It’s a stepping off point for an exploration of galleries and artist’s studios, water sports, architecture, gardens, and memento shopping.
