Journey along the eastern coast of North America for a cruise that visits beautifully preserved historical sites, untouched nature and glittering metropolises.
Cruise to Canada’s east coast and down into New England past dramatic natural sights, old-world towns and ultra-modern cities. Cruise companies have begun to capitalize on the region’s multifaceted appeal and most major operators now offer itineraries here. If you can’t decide between a scenic escape or a city break, cruise to New England and Canada, a stunning part of the world that offers both.
Days aboard the ship will vary depending on which type of vessel you choose. Luxurious crafts, low-occupancy ships and family-friendly liners all journey up and down the coast. As you make a port visit, enjoy meals of fresh New England lobster and other local dishes. One guaranteed aspect of each Canada and New England cruise vacation, whatever the ship, is the breathtaking scenery you will pass on your journey.
Port days might involve exploring thriving cities such as Boston and Quebec City. Alternatively, you might end up wandering around charming oceanfront towns such as Halifax, Nova Scotia or Bar Harbor, Maine. This is the part of America first settled by intrepid Europeans, so take time on your New England cruise to visit Revolutionary War and colonial sites in Newport or Boston.
Bike through Maine’s Acadia National Park and take advantage of opportunities for whitewater rafting and speedboat rides on days ashore. Bring your camera on your Canada and New England cruise as you might spot whales swimming alongside the ship.
New England and Canada cruises in summer guarantee the best weather. Perhaps the prettiest time to go, however, is autumn. The forest-lined coasts burst into a vivid array of reds and golds, promising spectacular, colorful scenery.
Canada and New England have ports all along the coast, so you can choose where to embark. Popular starting points for Canada and New England cruises include New York, Cape Liberty, Quebec and Montreal. Take a short, 7-night voyage along the coast or book a 14-night cruise to enjoy more of the sights. Many operators offer one-way sailings, which allow you to see longer stretches of the coastline before you have to return home.
