Canada has far more to offer than just maple syrup and Mounties. Its colonial and indigenous history and stunning natural beauty blend seamlessly when your cruise takes in the colour drenched shores of Canada & New England.
A land of incredible coastlines, French-speaking cities and friendly locals, Canada is the world’s second-largest country and nicknamed the Great White North. In Montreal step into 17th-century Notre Dame Cathedral, and wander the European-styled, cobbled streets of the Old Town in Quebec City. Venture out of the urban centres and explore the country’s wild terrain, transit the St Lawrence waterway from St. John’s, Newfoundland right up to Montreal.
Canada cruises often include Vancouver Island, which is a nature lover’s paradise, while the Maritime Provinces have perhaps the most spellbinding scenery east of the Rockies, and the French speaking cities of Québec and Montréal boast characterful cobbled streets, historical buildings and a rich joie-de-vivre.
When to go:
The best time to see the autumn foliage in New England and Nova Scotia is in September and October, when the majority of East Coast luxury cruises take place. The West Coast too, sees the most activity in May, September and October.
