Kennedy and describing his early political life, the first televised presidential debate between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, and the President’s inspiring inaugural address. Interactive computers provide insight into the administration’s programs and the message they have for us today. You will also discover the grace and culture brought to the White House by First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy through a video of her televised White House tour and a sampling of her wardrobe and possessions.

Your return journey to your Crystal ship will feature a one-hour drive past a selection of Boston’s highlights, including Copley Square, Back Bay, Boston Common, Public Garden, Beacon Hill and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
