Kayak, Whale-watch, Eat- Shop. The perfect travel adventure is found in the historic and scenic beauty of Canada and New England.
Day 1 – Fly into Montreal and board the Zaandam, one of Holland America’s smallest luxury ships, designed for navigating the smaller river channels. Begin your cruise of the beautiful St. Lawrence River.
Day 2 – In Quebec City discover a tree-lined Champs-Elysees, buttery croissants, the life of the French, and the haute couture shops of Old Town. You will ask, “Is this Canada or France?”
Day 3 – Cruising the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Try Poutine served on deck as you cruise the wildlife-rich St. Lawrence River watching for beluga, humpback, and minke whales.
Day 4 – On Prince Eduard Island visit the farmhouse of the inspired Anne of Green Gables. Hear the story of the creation of the Canadian confederacy on a self-guided walking tour/scavenger hunt in Charlottetown. Will you find a cannon sunk in the sidewalk?
Day 5-6 – A hundred thousand Gaelic welcomes await you in Nova Scotia, beginning with a performance by a Citadel highlander and bagpiper as you sail into Halifax. At the northeast end of the providence sits Cape Breton Island, wildly beautiful with inviting highland villages and rugged coastlines, Sydney has been called the gateway to it all!
Day 7 – In Bar Harbor Maine you will enjoy a special cruise on a Downeast Maine-style lobster boat. In the evening, in the ship’s elegant main Dining Room, feast on succulent lobster sourced from these very waters.
Day 8 – Disembark in Boston and fly home to Georgia full of wonderful memories of beautiful Canada.
