Canada & US Cruises
(Canada & New England Cruise)
Lighthouses aren't the only reason people found their way here. New England and eastern Canada have an unmistakable charm, rich history and natural beauty all their own. And there's no better time to visit than the fall - when the foliage is brilliant in every imaginable color, lighthouses dot the coastline, and there's always an authentic lobster bake going on somewhere. Experience Boston, before you set sail on a round-trip voyage from Boston, discovering coastal New England and the Canadian Maritimes.

Tourists visit Portland's historic Old Port district along Portland Harbor, at the mouth of the Fore River and part of Casco Bay, and the Arts District, which runs along Congress Street in the center of the city. Portland Head Light is located in nearby Cape Elizabeth and marks the entrance to Portland Harbor.
Bar Harbor is a town on Mount Desert Island in Hancock County, Maine. A popular summer residence area, the name Bar Harbor has become synonymous with elite wealth, as historically, the rich and famous constantly tried to outdo each other with entertaining and estates. A wildfire in 1947 burned a considerable portion of the city, including 67 palatial summer houses on Millionares' Row, fortunately avoiding the town's business district, and historic Mount Desert Street.
Saint John is a port, and the largest city of New Brunswick, located on the Bay of Fundy, at the mouth of the Saint John River.

Halifax is a city in Canada, which was the capital of the province of Nova Scotia. It was the largest city in Atlantic Canada until it was amalgamated into Halifax Regional Municipality in 1996. Halifax Harbour is among the largest natural harbours in the world, and settlement here by the British was originally planned with strategic military protection in mind. Local sights include Halifax Citadel, Pier 21 (Canada's Ellis Island), Maritime Museum, and a tidy collection of parks, shops and restaurants.
