Day 3 Quebec City, QC

The singular image of the city is a hotel surrounded by cannons. Built to evoke a mountain castle, Chateau Frontenac sits atop a Cape above the St. Lawrence River.

Day 5 Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Canada’s smallest province is an Island that seems to be tethered to New Brunswick by the 12.9 km Confederation Bridge. The largest city on Prince Edward Island, as well as its capital, Charlottetown’s Victorian architecture, parks and its harbourside location, make it a perfect cruise stop. Walk the cobblestones of Victoria Row, see the house that inspired “Anne of Green Gables” or visit the wild shore of Prince Edward Island National Park. The Ship sets sail again at 5:00 p.m. (B,L,D)

Day 6 Sydney, Nova Scotia

After cruising through the night, you find yourself in Sydney, Nova Scotia, which is located on Cape Breton Island. The region is very well known for their Gaelic traditions and culture, as well as some incredible scenery. The Bras d’or Lakes are located in almost the very centre of the island; the famous Cabot Trail takes you across the Highlands, before descending to the small fishing communities located on the shores of the ocean; and the Island is very well known for a great number of famous residents such as Alexander Graham Bell and Rita McNeil. We are in port from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (B,L,D)

Day 7 Halifax, NS

Halifax has long been a very important North American port, during both times of war and times of peace. It is also such a charming city, that no one ever minds visiting again and again. You can choose a city tour to learn history and facts of this great Canadian city, or visit the Citadel, sitting majestically over the city, or stroll the picturesque waterfront. The ship arrives in Halifax at 8:00 a.m. and sets sail at 4:00 p.m. (B,L,D)

Day 8 Bar Harbor, Maine
