DAY 1 D
We fly from Albuquerque to New York City and overnight in the City.
DAY 2 B,L,D
We board our beautiful ship the Caribbean Princess and begin our adventure.
DAY 3 B,L,D
We port in Newport, Rhode Island. In the 19th century, Newport was America's Versailles. It was here that the great merchant princes and robber barons of the Gilded Age erected the elaborate summerhouses they so ingenuously dubbed "cottages." At the height of its splendor, a Newport season was a giddy whirl of grand fêtes, yacht races and elaborate beach picnics for assorted Vanderbilts, Astors and Morgans.
DAY 4 B,L,D
Today we stop in Boston, Massachusetts. Hailed as the "Cradle of American Independence," Boston brims with heritage landmarks and cultural attractions that tell the story of our country's fascinating history. Boston was America's first great city and has been described as the "Athens of America." Today this vibrant city combines historic districts with revitalized urban centers.
DAY 5 B,L,D
Nestled in Maine's Frenchman Bay on Mount Desert Island lies the quaint town of Bar Harbor. The wealthy have flocked to the area since the early 1900s, making it a fashionable summer resort filled with Newport-style "cottages," though many were razed in a catastrophic fire in 1947. As you approach the shore, gaze upon the many unique lighthouses still standing guard over 3,478 miles of Maine's coast.
DAY 6 B,L,D
Boasting unspoiled natural beauty and a spectacular coastline, New Brunswick's pristine shores await you. The capital of Saint John is Canada's oldest settlement and was a thriving industrial port until it was leveled by fire in 1877, but redevelopment of the Old City Market and Heritage Area has restored the town's charm and its sense of history. Saint John lies on the Bay of Fundy, which boasts the highest tides in the world and the astonishing Reversing Rapids.
DAY 7 B,L,D
The capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Canada's Atlantic Provinces, Halifax was once Great Britain's major military bastion in North America. The beautifully restored waterfront buildings of Halifax's Historic Properties recall the city's centuries-old maritime heritage. Halifax was once Great Britain’s major military bastion in North America. If we stroll the waterfront, we may discover Nova Scotia’s floating ambassador, the schooner Bluenose II. Halifax is also the gateway to Nova Scotia’s stunning scenery, including famous Peggy’s Cove
DAY 8 B,L,D
Cape Breton is fabled as a magical travel destination and the Port of Sydney is the gateway. Known for its beauty and unique Celtic music and culture, Sydney puts some of the Island's greatest sights and attractions at your fingertips when you disembark into the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion.
DAY 9 B,L,D
While Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest province in terms of area and population, it more than makes up for this with the friendliness of its people, its natural beauty, and for being known as the birthplace of Canada. The island's landscape is dramatic and features rolling hills, pristine forests, reddish-white sand beaches, ocean coves and the famous red soil.
DAY 10 B,L,D
We enjoy a day at sea. Shall we enjoy a spa treatment, read a book in the library, or meet our fellow travelers to review what we've seen?
DAY 11 B,L,D
We arrive in Quebec City where we will overnight. This day is yours. To visit Québec is to experience France without crossing the Atlantic. The architecture, the ambience, and the animated conversation on the street confirm the impression that a bit of France has been permanently embedded in North America. Stroll along the streets of the atmospheric Latin Quarter and explore the historic stone and brick houses of Old Québec, the only remaining walled city north of Mexico. Visit the Place Royale and Notre Dame des Victoires, the oldest stone church in North America, and marvel at the turreted Château de Frontenac.
DAY 12 B
It's time to disembark our wonderful ship and head for home, filled with memories of the gorgeous fall foliage of New England and Canada.
