Canada and New England 


Canada and New England Cruises

Eastern Canada and New England

Eastern Canada and New England

The coastline of New England, the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the banks of the Saint Lawrence River beckon, for reasons far beyond the region’s traditionally colorful fall foliage.


Major Ports of Call:


Montreal, Quebec

Reachable by cruise ships even though located on the Saint Lawrence River

  • Tour charming Old Town, which may feel more like Paris than anywhere else in North America.
  • Shop the Underground City complex.
  • Visit the Atwater or Jean Talon markets to pick up gifts, mementos and sweet treats.
  • Hike to the top of Mont Royal, in the middle of the city for a beautiful view.


Quebec City

Historic part of town is surrounded by the only remaining fortified walls north of Mexico

  • Look up to see the towering Chateau Frontenac, an incredibly grand hotel.
  • Hop on the funicular railway for an excitingly steep ride and great view of the city and river.
  • Watch the changing of the guard at the Citadel, an old fort still occupied by troops.
  • Sample poutine, a French Canadian dish of French fries covered with gravy and fresh cheese curds.


Charlottestown, Prince Edward Island

The largest community in Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island

  • Stroll the waterfront and parks, play a round of golf, or set sail to fish for lobster.
  • Get back to nature in Prince Edward Island National Park, with red sand beaches, an extensive system of sand dunes, and protected areas for endangered birds.


Halifax, Nova Scotia

Small town charm, big-city amenities

  • Visit Peggy’s Cove, a seaside village with colorful buildings and a craggy coastline.
  • Explore a hilltop fortress and Citadel.
  • Shop and eat to your heart’s content – the city’s cobblestone streets near the waterfront provide opportunities galore.


Saint John, New Brunswick

Best known for the amazing Reversing Falls, a natural phenomenon created by strong tides pushing against the outflow of the Saint John River

  • Hike and bike along Fundy Trail Parkway.
  • Explore the historic waterfront, featuring a host of gargoyles and other Victorian decorations.


Bar Harbor, Maine

Near Acadia National Park, which occupies much of Mount Desert Island

  • Enjoy views of rounded mountain summits made of pink granite, as they peek out from slopes covered with colorful fall trees and evergreens.
  • Relax as you walk or bike on your choice of more than 50 miles of carriage trails in the park, catching glimpses of Frechman Bay.
  • Stroll along the Shore Path to admire elegant summer homes, then enjoy lunch in one of the town’s many fine restaurants.


Portland, Maine

Extends into the beautiful seascape of Casco Bay

  • Explore the charming Old Port area, which has cobblestoned streets and restored brick buildings from the 19th century.
  • Visit specialty shops, restaurants and pubs.
  • Enjoy more of the striking coastal scenery by riding a ferry to a quiet island or taking an excursion to a classic coastal village, such as Kennebunkport.
