Highlights of this cruise: Montreal The St. Lawrence Seaway abuts land where old Europe meets contemporary design – in Montreal. Feel the pulse of this diverse and vibrant city on an optional pre- or post-cruise premium experience. On a half-day driving tour, survey the splendor of the view from the Mount Royal Overlook, then slip beneath the metropolitan surface to explore Underground City and its dazzling array of shops, art venues, theaters and cafés. The medieval ambiance of the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica enchants all. Throughout the city, ornate edifices and alluring locations hint at Montreal’s wealth of cultural treasures. Quebec 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. 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. Halifax 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. Boston Boston is ubiquitous. As the Cradle of Modern America, it birthed a revolution. Laced in legacy and a world of cultures, the city has stories to tell. Follow the red-brick road along the Freedom Trail, and admire the zenith of colonial history and modern innovation. Cobblestone walkways, civic landmarks and classic architecture sit pretty to reveal authentic Americana from the perspective of one of the oldest cities in the United States. From bookstore and boutique to street performer, Boston is groundbreaking.
