U N ITED STATES
CRU I SING
St. Lawrence River
Days 0-1 Sail from Boston and awaken in
Bar Harbor, Maine, anticipating a cruise on
a Downeast Maine-style lobster boat. That
evening, in the ship's elegant two-tiered main
Dining Room, feast on succulent lobster sourced
from these very waters.
Days 2-3 A hundred thousand Gaelic welcomes
await you in Nova Scotia, beginning with a
performance by a Citadel highlander and
a bagpiper as you sail into Halifax. At the
northeast end of the province sits Cape Breton
Island, wildly beautiful with inviting highland
villages and rugged coastlines. Sydney is the
gateway to it all.
Day 4 On Prince Edward Island visit the
farmhouse that inspired Anne of Green Gables
and hear the story of the creation of the
Canadian confederacy on a self-guided walking
tour/scavenger hunt in Charlottetown. Will you
find the cannon sunk in the sidewalk?
Days 5-6 Poutine (a Canadian indulgence of
french fries, gravy and cheese) is served on
deck as you cruise the wildlife-rich St. Lawrence
River, watching for beluga, humpback and minke
whales. In Québec City discover a tree-lined
Champs-Élysées, buttery croissants, the lilt of
French, the haute couture shops of Old Town.
Is this Canada or France?
Day 7 Reluctant to bid adieu to French-speaking
Canada, continue your discoveries with a postcruise vacation package in Montréal.
Come live the fairy tale
of a grand château on
the river as you drink in
the view and high tea
at Québec City's famed
