Canadian Crown Jewels Cruise – EARLYBIRD

US $4,716

Per person

9 Night Cruise sailing from Montreal to Gloucester (near Boston) aboard Ocean Voyager. Hotel stay pre-cruise in Montreal. Phenomenal experiences lay in store for those who choose this epic 11-day adventure. Relish the charms of Montreal on your pre-voyage hotel stay, then prepare to be dazzled as the ship gets underway. On this trip, a naturalist joins us on board to enhance the sheer joy of gliding upon the St. Lawrence estuary – deep and teeming with marine life, including blue and beluga whales. The balance of the journey unwraps the gifts of Canada’s easternmost provinces, and proffers the pleasures of Portland, Maine, including shopping in the Old Port District. Highlights of this cruise: Montreal The St. Lawrence Seaway abuts land where old Europe meets contemporary design – in Montreal. Feel the pulse of this diverse and vibrant city on an optional pre- or post-cruise premium experience. On a half-day driving tour, survey the splendor of the view from the Mount Royal Overlook, then slip beneath the metropolitan surface to explore Underground City and its dazzling array of shops, art venues, theaters and cafés. The medieval ambiance of the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica enchants all. Throughout the city, ornate edifices and alluring locations hint at Montreal’s wealth of cultural treasures. Quebec The old-world charm of this ramparted enclave beckons visitors from around the globe. She is a French fille at heart – a glittering jewel brightening the banks of the St. Lawrence. From a raised mound of earth, Château Frontenac towers toward the heavens over Upper Town, evoking the grandeur of a country estate. Traces of the city’s English heritage bloom in the mixed borders of the living artwork within Joan of Arc Garden. Just moments in the sleek gentility of this marvelous destination, and you’ll feel as if you were whisked across the Atlantic for a whirlwind European getaway. Halifax Coastal living, rugged wilderness and urban polish converge around Nova Scotia’s capital. Drink in the lively mix of historic and modern in the beating heart of this lively seaport. Bustling streets slope down toward indigo brine and oceanic splendor, stretching east into oblivion. Bathe in botanical beauty at the Public Gardens. The fortified summit of Citadel Hill – never needed for actual protection – stands as a testament to the peaceful nature of the nation. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 offer their own remarkable perspectives. Gloucester Disembark

From multicolored murals to sunny decks on which to sit a spell, this spot feels like a slice of paradise. Day 6 Boothbay Harbor, ME Welcome to the quintessential seaside New England village. Imagine cheerful clambakes shared on beaches backed by towering pines…lazy pups lapping from public bowls in the eclectic shopping district… salty snaps of sea breezes. Nearby, stunning botanic gardens showcase the best of the region’s plant life. Boothbay Harbor captures hearts in an unparalleled fashion. Most visitors find their way back to its magic again and again. Day 7 Rockland, ME This charming small town is New England in a snapshot. Lobsters, tall ships, lighthouses and puffins – the adorable orange-tinged birds, for which Maine ocean islands provide their only American nesting grounds. Limestone from the area helped build Boston, New York and beyond. Arts, attractions and breathtaking landscapes give rise to a special atmosphere here. Day 8 Bar Harbor, ME The sunrise greets this magical port on Mount Desert Island before any other place in America during fall. An encircling landscape of granite gorgeously sculpted by eons is the breathtaking backdrop for a community rooted in tradition and a true sense of place. In Acadia National Park, standing on the rare crushed-shell surface of Sand Beach affords a panorama of nature’s pageantry, from pink granite to towering evergreen. Answer your inner adventurer’s call on an optional premium experience to transcend the bounds of the soil and behold the untamed terrain as birds soaring overhead do – on a scenic flight. Or soak in some Downeast hospitality on a traditional lobster boat tour. As seals laze on jutted rocks, we make our way to commune with Cadillac Mountain – the East Coast’s highest peak. Day 9 Disembark: St. John, New Brunswick As the journey concludes, enjoy the city at your leisure.
