Day 1: Portland, ME

Enjoy a complimentary stay at the pre-cruise hotel. The evening allows time to become acquainted with the city. For your convenience, our Hospitality Desk will be located in the hotel, and our friendly staff can assist with everything from general questions about the upcoming voyage to reservation of premium experiences. Representatives will be available to provide suggestions for dining, entertainment and sightseeing options to maximize your time here. 

Day 2: Portland, ME | Embark

On 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. At Cape Elizabeth just to the south, the Portland Head Light stands as a beacon to the ocean’s travelers.

Day 3: Scenic Sailing on the Atlantic Ocean

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Ah, another day on the vast Atlantic Ocean – a day to rise with the sun and meet with friends in the restaurant of your choosing over breakfast...or sleep in and order room service. Gather in the Compass Lounge for snacks and games...or take in the view from the deck with your favorite cocktail in hand. This day is yours to craft as you desire.

Day 4: Halifax, NS

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Coastal 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. The fortified summit of Citadel Hill – never needed for actual protection – stands as a testament to the peaceful nature of the nation. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 offer their own remarkable perspectives.

Day 5: Scenic Sailing Through the Strait of Canso

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Unwind in seascape and sunlight as the canvas of blue and green slips by. Scenic sailing reveals the uncommon beauty of the Strait of Canso. Daytime entertainment and regionally inspired cuisine rival anything on land. Take a fancy to sail, and enjoy this opportunity to venture beyond the cliffs. 

Day 6: Charlottetown, P.E.I.

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The red-earthed muse of “Anne of Green Gables” sprouts opportunity for exploration. Charlottetown, planted within the Garden of the Gulf, invites travelers to rollick in whimsical architecture and rose-gold shorelines. Beachside vistas embrace emerald pastures while a charming city center boasts the boons of life as a port community. Stroll through downtown, allow the sounds of street performers to dance through the eardrums, and discover the seduction of ocean-to-table cuisine. An equipoise of big-city energy with quiet spaces awaits on the shorelines. 

Day 7: Scenic Sailing on the Gulf of St. Lawrence

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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. 

Day 8: Whale Watching | Tadoussac

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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 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. The M/V Victory II makes a rendezvous with your whale-watching boat off the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord and guests transfer onto the "Grand Fleuve", which is staffed by a crew who are experts in whale behavior.

Day 9: Québec City, Québec

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The 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 River. 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. Just moments in the sleek gentility of this marvelous destination, and you’ll feel as if you were whisked across the Atlantic for a whirlwind European getaway. 

Day 10: Montréal, Québec

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In considering metropolitan sophistication, Montreal comes immediately to mind. As geography is as diverse as its population. More than 120 cultural communities make up the multilingual population center. A city tour showcases some of the city’s true delights – attractions that are urban wonders, yet steeped in history. For the remainder of the day, guests roam the city at their leisure, free to explore museums, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and more. Every traveler is sure to find something to love in this sensational destination. 

Day 11: Scenic Sailing through Thousand Islands
