Itinerary Map

DAY 1 : UK - Montreal.

Travel to Montreal and transfer to your hotel for a two night stay.

DAY 2 : Montreal.

Get to know this lively city on the St Lawrence River, regarded as Canada’s cultural capital. Founded in 1642 by French Catholic settlers, it staunchly adhered to its French culture despite being occupied by the British in 1760. Today, the city still feels very French with most residents speaking French as their first language. Must-sees include cobblestoned Old Montreal, with its 18th and 19th century houses and pavement cafes, the elegant downtown area and leafy Mont-Royal Park, which commands fantastic views over the city’s skyscrapers and monuments below.

DAY 3 : Montreal.

Enjoy more time in Montreal before transferring to your cruise ship, the MS Veendam, for embarkation and cruising along the beautiful St Lawrence River. Includes Dinner

DAY 4 : Quebec City.

Another very French city on the St Lawrence awaits today - Quebec. Chosen as a trading post by 17th century French explorer Samuel Champlain, this lovely city offers stone buildings, winding streets and sunny squares. Take the opportunity to join an optional excursion to ride the funicular to historic, walled Old Quebec, see the castle-like Chateau Frontenac, delve into picture-book Petit Champlain and admire Place Royal square, home of North America's oldest Catholic church, the Notre Dame des Victoires. Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 6 : Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

Connected to mainland Canada by 8-mile-long Confederation Bridge, Prince Edward Island consists of gentle hills, forests and untouched sandy beaches.

Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 7 : Sydney, Nova Scotia.

Established by British loyalists in 1785, the port of Sydney is your gateway to the colourful culture and natural wonders of Cape Breton Island. Settled by the Scots and Irish in the 1800s, the island has a rich Gaelic heritage and passion for Celtic music. Explore on your own or perhaps join an optional excursion, to see the seabirds on rocky Bird Islands, strolling through pretty Old Sydney or visiting beautiful Bras d’Or Lake. Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 8 : Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Flanking one of the world's greatest natural harbours, Halifax was once Britain's major military outpost in North America. Step back in time along the beautifully restored waterfront, take photos of the wave-pounded lighthouse at Peggy's Cove or discover Halifax's Titanic heritage at the Maritime Museum and Fairlawn Cemetery, where 121 victims of the disaster are buried. Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 9 : Bar Harbor, Maine.

Backed by 1,530-foot Cadillac Mountain, this quaint town was the playground of America’s most illustrious 19th century families, including the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. See the stately Victorian mansions they summered in, tour the clapboard shops, sample Maine lobster or explore the forests, mountains and wild shores of spectacular Acadia National Park. Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
