Overview

Admire the natural beauty and colorful autumn hues of Canada and New England. As you cruise, learn about the rich history and lively culture of the province of Quebec. Discover the Scottish heritage and seafaring ways of the Canadian Maritimes, then immerse yourself in the striking landscapes surrounding Bar Harbor. Sail the scenic St. Lawrence River and the remarkable Cape Cod Canal, and experience the charm of Newport, one of the oldest cities in the US.

Itinerary

Board your ship in Montreal, nestled on an island on the St. Lawrence River. You will have the afternoon free to settle in to your ship or set off to explore the city on your own, perhaps going underground to experience its subterranean city, popular with residents during cold winter months.

Today you will continue to explore Montreal. Step into the city's rich history of fur trading in its Old Port section, lined with picturesque stone buildings along the St. Lawrence River. Ascend to the heights of Mount Royal Park for sweeping city and river views. And marvel at the glorious architecture and interiors of the Notre Dame Basilica. Alternately, you might venture farther to witness the natural beauty of the Laurentian Mountains or sample the region's maple sugar delicacies.

Visit the grand dame of Quebec province today, the venerable Quebec City, a European-style gem on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. As you explore its cobblestone streets, you will take in its decidedly regal air, crowned by the magnificent Château Frontenac. You will see the Place Royale, the Upper and Lower Old Towns lined with distinctive white stone buildings dating to the early 17th century, and the Parliament. Or discover the province's natural beauty at Montmorency Falls and Canyon Sainte-Anne.

Discover the history of Saguenay today, a once-disparate region of boroughs established as one city as recently as 2002. Built on a rich fur-trading and timber industry, it is a quintessential Quebecois town proud of its rural roots. You can witness the story of its growth during a lively stage show created specifically for English-speaking visitors. Alternately, you can head into the countryside to visit two family businesses that embody the region's French heritage with their cheese and wine production.

Today you will make your way down the St. Lawrence River, an important waterway that allows vessels to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes of the Midwest. As you sail, you might attend an illuminating enrichment lecture in the theater. This evening, enjoy cocktails with new friends in the Explorers' Lounge.

Discover the rich Scottish heritage of Prince Edward Island, known as the 'Garden of the Gulf' for its prolific farms and rolling countryside that turns all colors in the fall. During your visit, you are invited to join a lively traditional ceilidh, or 'kitchen party,' where musicians strike up ancestral songs. Amid the revelry, you can sample fresh locally sourced oysters, mussels and clams. Or, you might take a scenic drive to tour the farmhouse that inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery to pen Anne of Green Gables.

Enjoy the day cruising to your next destination, taking advantage of your ship's generous amenities. Perhaps you will swim in the Infinity Pool or mingle with newfound friends over tea in the Wintergarden. This evening, enjoy soft piano music in the Living Room or lively jazz in Torshavn.

Sail along the scenic coast of Nova Scotia today. As you cruise, spend the day enjoying the amenities of your elegant ship. Indulge in Nordic-inspired treatments at The Spa or find your inner calm with some yoga on the Sports Deck. Tonight, dine on thoughtfully prepared cuisine that connects you to the flavors of your destination and watch a movie beneath the stars at the Main Pool.

The oldest city in Canada, St. John is located along the scenic shores of the Bay of Fundy. Discover this port city's colorful past, then learn how its rich traditions, such as lobster fishing, remain relevant today. Travel to the village of St. Martins, once one of the biggest producers of wooden sailing ships in the Canadian Maritimes, and set sail into the bay in search of whales and other wildlife.

Set out for Bar Harbor to admire the dense forests, glacier-carved mountains and rugged coastlines that make up Acadia National Park. Embark on a scenic drive along the shore and listen to stories of the park's heyday as a playground for the Gilded Age elite. Discover the secrets to cooking an iconic Maine chowder, or take to the water for a scenic cruise around Frenchman's Bay.

Call on Portland today and explore its historic districts that are brimming with charm. Visit Maine's oldest lighthouse; a climb to the top will reward you with spectacular views. Or discover why Portland's maritime history became the inspiration for the works of one of America's greatest painters, Winslow Homer.

One of the United States' oldest cities, Newport retains much of its colonial charm and Gilded Age splendor. Stroll past the well-preserved buildings that populate the city's historic district. Or take a drive along Bellevue Avenue, home to the opulent mansions of wealthy 19th-century industrialists. Experience the city's rich maritime tradition during a cruise on an America's Cup racing yacht.

As we sail the Atlantic toward Miami, enjoy a day indulging in the amenities of your ship. You might find your inner calm with yoga on the Sports Deck. Lounge by the Main Pool with its retractable roof and enjoy a cocktail at the Aquavit Bar. After an al fresco dinner at the World Café, settle in for some light jazz and a nightcap at Torshavn.
