Canada & New England Discovery

Ports of Call

Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Part French, part English, totally intriguing. Explore the cobblestone streets of lamp-lit Old Montreal; visit the tranquil Botanical Gardens; try your luck at the high-energy Casino de Montreal.

Quebec City, Quebec, Canada - Holland America gives you two full days to explore this noble walled city with a French accent. Stroll Old Quebec's maze of cobbled streets, happening upon quaint sidewalk cafes, boutiques and antique shops; tour to Montmorency Falls, higher than Niagara.

Gulf Of St. Lawrence - Cruising - A lighthouse on little St. Paul’s Island is a stark reminder of days gone by as you sail past this infamous old shipwreck site, known as the graveyard of the gulf, on your way through the Cabot Strait and into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. So huge is the gulf that half of Canada’s 10 provinces have a coastal connection to it. Perhaps that’s not surprising, considering that it’s the world’s largest estuary and fed all the way from the Great Lakes 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) away.

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada - A provincial capital with a distinctly English feel. Where red double-decker buses motor along streets lined with gingerbread-trimmed Victorian houses; and tea is served promptly at three.

Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada - So green and Gaelic is Cape Breton Island that Scotsman Alexander Graham Bell called it home for the last 37 years of his life. See why as you follow the scenic 184-mile-long Cabot Trail. Or tour to the Fortress of Louisbourg, meticulously restored to its 1744 mint condition.

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - Ocean scenery at its best: granite boulders pounded by crashing surf, lighthouses standing sentinel on rocky ledges, a delectable lobster lunch caught fresh from the waters off Peggy's Cove. Back in Halifax, the ramparts of the Citadel await your inspection.

Bar Harbor, Maine, US - Once the summer-society rival of Newport, today Bar Harbor is rich in the legacy of the 19th century millionaires, including Acadia National Park, most of which was donated by the Rockefeller family. Clip clop along tranquil trails in a horse-drawn carriage.

Boston, Massachusetts, US - The cradle of American history, Boston rests on its glorious cultural laurels-Trinity Church, Old Ironsides, the Freedom Trail; yet thrusts into the next millennium as a high-tech hub of the computer industry.
