For This trip we will get to explore everything from the bustling city of New York to the some of Canada’s quieter islands. We start our trip in New York and sail down the Hudson River, as we start our adventure north.New York – USA
The ‘Big Apple’ is the USA’s most charismatic city and really does have something for everyone. Love the great outdoors? Stroll through the gorgeous gardens of Central Park, right in the centre of Manhattan.
People-watching more your thing? Get a taste of local life in the quaint cafés of bohemian Greenwich Village, or star spot in the boutique and restaurant-lined streets of the sophisticated SoHo and TriBeCa districts.Newport - Rhode Island
Newport is filled with palatial ‘summer cottages’, quaint colonial streets and inviting vineyards, not to mention ten-mile Ocean Drive and relaxing Gooseberry Beach. Next, it’s the friendly, walkable city of Boston. Discover why it was dubbed ‘The Cradle of Liberty’ in the fascinating history on the Freedom Trail.Portland - Maine
Portland in Maine has all the ingredients for the perfect New England Sail. Just north of Boston and nestling on a peninsula in the delightful Casco Bay, Portland is the ideal place just to go wandering. From the restored waterfronts eclectic mix of pubs, restaurants, galleries and the fascinating Victorian architecture of the town center, it is as relaxing as it is entertaining. Just along the rugged coast at Cape Elizabeth is the worlds oldest permanently-operating lighthouse - the 18th century Portland Headlight. As you might expect, the views are just spectacular.Halifax, Nova Scotia - Canada
Halifax is the principal city of Nova Scotia and one of the most dramatically indented coastlines in the world. It is also one of the closest Canadian ports to Europe, hence its early prominence in transatlantic trade (Samuel Cunard was born here). For lovers of maritime history, a call at the cruise port Halifax will be one of the most memorable of a cruise around the USA’s Eastern Seaboard and the Canadian Maritimes.
One of the city’s biggest attractions is the reversing falls of the Saint John river whereby the Bay of Fundy causes the river flow to reverse. The city is also home to Martello Tower, a harbour fortification built during the war of 1812 and Fort Howe with its excellent views over the port.Itinerary
