Many of the sailings around Canada and New England last for one week, although mini cruises to the region lasting four and five nights are sometimes offered. Either way you’ll depart from and return to New York City, the perfect place for an extended cruise and stay holiday with added time to explore this incredible city.
The city of Boston in Massachusetts is a key port on any cruise to New England, known as it is as the birthplace of America. You can choose from guided tours around the major city landmarks either by bus or on the waters around the harbour, with notable landmarks showcasing the important locations in the history not just of the city but the nation as a whole. You can also visit a museum dedicated to the famous Salem witch trials which took place in nearby towns.
Your cruise will also likely call at Portland, the largest city in the state of Maine. Here you’ll see a contrast between the traditional harbour area where lobster fishing is a big trade, and the more contemporary city itself with red-brick buildings overlooking the harbour. It’s a very quaint city, with the main focus on much of the beauty of not only Portland but also further afield, with the seaside town of Kennebunkport always proving popular.
In Canada, the two main ports that are always included are Halifax on the Nova Scotia peninsula, and Saint John in New Brunswick. Halifax is a pretty harbour city with a lively atmosphere, with numerous museums to explore. There are also attractive lighthouses that you can visit while this region is renowned for lobster catching, so make sure you leave time to sample a dish.
Meanwhile in Saint John you can see the towering rocks of the Bay of Fundy, with kayaking excursions available. Much of the focus of this city is around the wildlife and natural scenery of the area, with sea caves, nature parks and more to explore.
