Discover Canada and New England on the MS Veendam
September 13-21, 2019
Explore massive islands, colorful towns, national parks, and thousands of tiny islets around which whales thrive.
Montréal: Discover the European charm and Old-World flair of the first French city in North America at the beginning of this tour. Founded in 1642 and located on the St. Lawrence River. We will explore the city sights and learn the fascinating history of Quebec’s 400-year legacy.
Quebec City: The gateway to the St. Lawrence River. We will tour the old fortress which was built as the gateway to the New World with European character. Quebec City is nestled on a historic rampart, a place of mellowed stone buildings, weathered cannons, ancient trees and narrow streets. It will remind you of European cities.
Charlottetown: An impressive number of Victorian houses, buildings and great parks wait to be explored. It is the capital of Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island. Sites within downtown Charlottetown include the lovely Victoria Row, which becomes a pedestrian mall each summer, and other historic buildings, some of which are now museums.
Sydney: The largest city on Cape Breton Island, which is linked by a causeway to the rest of Nova Scotia. Sydney’s attractions start at the harbor, where visitors can shop for locally made crafts and see the world’s largest fiddle! Restaurants often provide live music (expect fiddles and sea chanteys) along with meals of seafood fresh-caught in nearby waters. Sydney’s galleries give visitors a chance to meet local artists and purchase their work.
Halifax: Located on a rocky inlet on the Atlantic Ocean and is Nova Scotia’s provincial capital. It is defined by its maritime geography…a spirited mix of world-class history and nautical-themed museums alongside bunkers and fortresses that guard the harbor, plus striking public art and sights, funky shops and excellent pubs serving up enjoyable folk music. Along Nova Scotia’s southern shores, the city is surrounded by lush greenery and charming villages like the fishing village, Peggy’s Cove, with its picturesque lighthouse on a rocky outcropping.
Bar Harbor: The quintessential New England coastal town located along the coast of Maine. Picturesque and charming, it is a scenic and walkable town with streets lined with restaurants and boutiques. Dining on lobster is a must, as is a scoop or two at one of the town’s homemade ice cream shops. Bar Harbor is surrounded by the magnificent Acadia National Park, which includes Cadillac Mountain, the
tallest mountain along the east coast of the United States and the first place in the country to see the sunrise.
