A very popular cruise is the New England/Canada starting in New York or Boston. The cruise continues through the territories of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and eventually cruising down the St Lawrence river and ending up in Quebec City or Montreal. This North American holiday is low airfare and light on jet lag going northbound or southbound. When taking this cruise in the fall enjoy the beautiful colorful foliage during this historical cruise.
From the historical aspect of this cruise you would see the history of the American Revolution and the history of the French Canadian provinces. As you are passing through these territories you stop at the various ports of call where tours are scheduled.
Quebec City is my personal favorite as this multi leveled international city brings the charm of the French people to life right here in our own back yard. French culture and food and the architectural layout of the city makes you feel like you are really in France. A great walking and shopping city, makes for a memorable holiday.
French is spoken in Quebec and Montreal but I have never encountered any resistance to English and the people are courteous and hospitable. World class restaurants are abundant and the Canadian dollar is roughly equivalent of the US dollar which makes the money conversion easy to do.
The most photographed hotel in the world is the Chateau Frontenac. Many dignitaries around the world have stayed in this castle like hotel overlooking the St Lawrence river.
To get maximum benefit from this cruise allow 7-14 days. To increase your enjoyment spend extra days in New York (pre or post cruise) and select from the world class plays on Broadway.
