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.
Québec City, QCThe 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.

The ebb and flow of the tides reach the river here. Revel in the fetch of the gentle waves and another unhurried day of exploring the decks, taking in the view from different perspectives and sharing time with friends.
Rocky walls rise up toward firmament, embracing those who venture onto this stunning span of water. Perhaps morning will dawn upon wispy mists of coastal fog to greet early risers. See where the day takes you - a brisk walk on the Sun Deck, a cozy pint in The Tavern or just watching the scenery slip past...let your mood shift with the breeze, indulging every whim.

An equipoise of big-city energy with quiet spaces awaits on the shorelines.

Laze in the grace that envelops, and be sure to seize the excellence within the vessel. Daytime entertainment and regionally inspired cuisine rival anything on land. Take a fancy to sailing, and enjoy this opportunity to venture beyond the cliffs.
Halifax, NSCoastal 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.
Set your cares adrift as the M/V Victory I gently plies the waters, surrounded by seemingly endless horizon, on this relaxing day of ocean cruising.
Portland, MEOn a peninsula in Casco Bay, this darling of the Pine Tree State - formerly its capital - lends urban sensibility to the wild splendor of the craggy coastline beyond. At the Old Port waterfront, restaurants and revelry now fill the 19th-century warehouses. Stroll along cobblestone streets and breathe in the fresh scent of the sea. Perhaps catch the strains of some bluegrass or blues from a nearby bar while hardworking fishermen on the wharves catch the next day's lunch.
Boston, MAAs the journey concludes, there are other opportunities for you to take in the town. Enjoy the city at your leisure, or consider a post-cruise premium experience with airport transfer.
Embracing the unexpected is part of the fun of travelling. Programs and schedules may change due to weather, tides, local circumstances and venue changes. A measure of flexibility is something all of us must bring to a voyage.
