Canada cruises are popular with travelers who are interested in quaint coastal villages, great colonial history, beautiful scenery and delicious seafood. Visit parts of the Atlantic Provinces, well-known for their unique maritime culture, small fishing villages and rich folk traditions, and to Canada’s Quebec province to spend time touring the charming cities of Montreal and Quebec City. Additionally, many Canada cruises will venture further south into New England, stopping at historic colonial cities along the way.
In Halifax, you might want to visit the Maritime Museum or St. Paul’s Anglican Church, and the Bay of Fundy and famous Peggy’s Cove are a short drive away. Spend a day exploring North America’s oldest city, Saint John, where a beautifully restored waterfront is a nice backdrop to the city’s picturesque harbor. A stop in Charlottetown will lead you to quaint 19th century houses, Prince Edward Island National Park and an interesting shipbuilding museum near Port Hill.
The stylish city of Montreal is well worth a stop to wander the old cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, and the historic city of Quebec City is where the Citadel and Montmorency Falls is located. In Colonial America, enjoy hiking through Acadia National Park, not far from Bar Harbor, ME, or if stopping in Boston, be sure to walk the three-mile Freedom trail that leads to 16 historic sites.
Whatever you decide, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of the natural surroundings and enjoy the sites, cuisine and people you’ll encounter.
