New England & Canada Cruise Details

Explore New England and Coastal Canada's most famous and fascinating sites during the colorful Autumn season. Stunning natural beauty, vibrant history, and some of the world's best seafood are all waiting for you on this glorious New England and Canada cruise.

First, experience the best of Boston. Fall in love with New England's largest city on a memorable tour. Boston is rich with history and famous for its tough yet sophisticated culture. From there, travel to the playground of America's wealthiest Golden Age families-Newport, Rhode Island. Visit a Newport Mansion, then see Cape Cod and Rutland, Vermont. Drive through the spectacular Green Mountains to Montreal and Quebec City. Both of these French speaking Canadian cities feel distinctly European.
