Enjoy the best of the borderlands between Canada and the USA. Survey two of the most European cities in North America, the French Canadian ports of Montreal and Quebec, then the Ontario metropolis of Toronto. We’ll transit the Welland Canal, and take in the majesty of Niagara Falls, and take in the blossoming renaissance of Cleveland and Detroit.

Highlights


• Get To Know Charlottetown. Located on Prince Edward Island, Canada’s tiniest and most charming province, Charlottetown is famous for its red earth and white beaches. It was founded in 1720 as a French fort on the island, and transferred to British forces in 1758. It was rechristened Charlottetown, in honor of the wife of King George III.

• Navigate through the Strait of Canso.. This strait is located in the province of Nova Scotia and divides the Nova Scotia peninsula from Cape Breton Island. It is a long thin channel approximately 16 and a half miles long and averaging almost 2 miles wide (0.62 miles at its narrowest).

• Sail to Halifax. It was settled by the British in 1746 to gain access to the rich cod resources in the surrounding waters and control over Halifax’s harbor, which is the second largest ice-free harbor in the world. Halifax’s strategic location near the Canadian, North American and North Atlantic trade routes made it a center of international shipping and trade in the 18th century and again during WWII, when supplies were being sent to Europe.

• Discover The Old Town of Lunenburg. It is one of only two urban communities in North America designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Founded in 1888, it was once the center of the fishing industry off of Labrador and became a major supplier of cod. Its particular “Lunenburg cured” cod found its way as far as Puerto Rico and markets in the West Indies. Today, Lunenburg has Canada’s largest secondary fish-processing plant and this fishing heritage is celebrated in the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic and the annual Fisherman’s Picnic and Reunion.

• Explore Portland. It is located on a peninsula originally called Machigonne (Great Neck) by Algonquian speakers who originally inhabited it. The British created a settlement here in 1632, and by the 18th century Portland was one of North America’s busiest ports. It was incorporated into the state of Maine in 1820 and served as the capital. It was the birthplace of American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Today, Portland offers a cosmopolitan setting, with an active waterfront of fishing wharves and warehouses, combined with contemporary shops, art museums, and a lively restaurant scene.

Welcome to Boston, Massachusetts. This capital city was founded in 1630 and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It played a key role in the American Revolution and the freedom of our country today. As you board the lovely M/V Victory II, settle into your outside stateroom before joining your fellow guests for dinner with free flowing house wines and cocktails.
Portland's waterfront combines active fishing wharves with warehouses, shops, and museums. Departing from the port, we'll take a picturesque drive through the elegant Victorian Mansion district, past the boyhood home of American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and out to Casco Bay and the famous Portland Head Light. After lunch onboard, we'll take a short ride to Kennebunkport, a shipbuilding mecca since the early 1600s. This New England community has long been the summer residence of President G. W. Bush. After soaking up the maritime atmosphere of this quaint community, we'll make our way back through the architecturally significant homes of nearby Kennebunk, visiting the Franciscan Monastery and pausing by the quirky "wedding cake house."
Fine dining, our Open Bar and the congenial camaraderie of your fellow travelers enhance your day at sea.
The Old Town of Lunenberg is one of only two urban communities in North America designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This morning, we'll tour Lunenburg's harbor-side streets, lined with unique shops and colorfully painted homes. We'll visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, which exhibits wharf-side vessels, an aquarium, and the famous Bluenose II, a replica of the original world famous racing schooner. After lunch, we'll embark on a scenic drive through Mahone Bay, famous for its pictureque natural beauty, handsome churches dotting the shore, and Nova Scotia's largest fishing fleet.
Located on Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest and most charming province, Charlottetown showcases a wealth of natural beauty and history. In the morning, coaches leave the port and follow the historic trail walked by delegates to the conference that led to the Confederation of Canada. We will make our way along the famous North Shore to Cavendish Bay, in Prince Edward Island National Park, to the farmstead that inspired L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. Enjoy a tour of the house, stroll the haunted woods, Lovers' Lane, and the famous white shores of the bay. Visit the charming city center before returning to the ship for an exceptional dinner overlooking the sea.
A relaxing day to absorb all we have learned as we continue our discussions onboard with new friends.
Tadoussac, where the St. Lawrence River meets the outflow of the Saguenay River, is one of the most exciting whale-watching sites in the world. Between May and October, up to 13 species of cetaceans make their way upriver from the Atlantic Ocean, to become temporary residents in the salty rich waters of the St. Lawrence. These sea mammals include blue whales, the largest animals on the planet, and the impressive humpbacks, which swim up into the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord near Tadoussac to feed.
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.
