Day 1 - 2

Transatlantic flight to Boston - transfer independently to your hotel to check-in.

Day 3

This morning you will check out of your hotel and transfer independently to the port, to embark on the Holland America Veendam for your Canada/New England cruise.

Day 4

Bar Harbor, Maine

Nestled on the doorstep of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor is an inviting coastal town with mesmerising scenery and a fantastically grand allure. Ideal for outdoor pursuits or simply admiring the extravagant mansions and manicured lawns, this is a sophisticated town.

Day 5

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Cosmopolitan and a culture hub, Halifax has become a popular destination thanks to its crisp, clean air and leafy parks that are dotted around heritage buildings. Head to the rugged shore and take in the sights of Peggy’s Cove – a ragged example of the topography here.

Day 6

Sydney, Canada

Sydney is the gateway to a rich history, beautiful landscapes that take in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the Bras D’Or Lake.

Day 7

Charlottetown, Prince Edward

Idyllic and charming, Charlottetown is a relaxing stop on your cruise – explore the cobblestone paths that lead to traditional buildings and parks, or head to Prince Edward Island National Park. This harbour-side location means there will be plenty of stunning vistas to experience and enjoy.

Day 8

Cruising Gulf of Saint Lawrence

The largest estuary in the world, the Gulf of Saint Lawrence lines the shores of almost half of Canada’s provinces. There are beautiful islands to be found here, a treasure trove for nature lovers, as well as thousands of migratory birds which set up home here during the spring and autumn seasons. If you’re lucky, you may also see sightings of whales, porpoises and seals.

Day 9 Quebec

Today you arrive into Quebec for a day where you can explore the history and the French culture. Your cruise departs at 17:00pm so make sure you are back onboard mid-afternoon

Day 10


Today your cruise ends in Montreal where you have 2 nights. Montreal is an entertaining city playing host to culture, scenery and a friendly atmosphere

A full day in Montreal. Montreal includes some fantastic family attractions such as; Botanical Garden, the Biodôme de Montreal, the Montreal Science Centre, the Montreal Insectarium, La Ronde (a Six Flags theme park), the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History and the Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame. A great way to get to grips with the city is a guided walking tour, or for something very different, a ghost tour of Old Montreal. For couples visiting the city, the Casino de Montreal is an entertaining evening with restaurants, a performance hall and gaming tables.

Hotel: Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth
