About The Places You Will Visit on Your Cruise

Spend a week exploring and discovering the many splendors of Canada & New England on this 7-day cruise from Boston, Massachusetts

Portland is Maine's biggest city and is the state's cultural and economic hub, attracting over three and a half million visitors each year. Originally a fishing and trading settlement, the town was destroyed three times over a hundred year period, and finally regained stability as a shipping port.

Unfortunately, overzealous Independence Day celebrators managed to set fire to most of the city's commercial buildings, hundreds of houses, and roughly half the city's churches in 1886, with the city rebuilt once again, this time in a Victorian style.

Mansions along the famous Western Promenade, as well as the Victoria Mansion on Danforth Street, feature beautiful examples of this architecture. Companies and proprietors may offer tours of their well-preserved interiors.

Despite its tough beginning, Portland remains a beautiful city, ideally situated on a peninsula that juts out into Casco Bay and flanked by several small islands. Historic houses blend with modern amenities and the city is a bustle of activity, making it one of the country's top cities to live in.

Resplendent in natural beauty, Portland is highly popular in summer and visitors can enjoy boat rides; sightseeing, shopping, dining and people-watching at the Old Port historic waterfront and the East End; and a visit to the Downtown Arts District or the prominent Portland Head Light Lighthouse.

The city is also home to poet Henry Wadsworth-Longfellow, as well as the Maine History Gallery. For the kids, there is the Children's Museum of Maine. Portland has an abundance of good restaurants, especially those offering renowned local seafood specialties like Maine lobster, clam chowder, and scallops, which are cheaper and more plentiful than in any other state.

As Portland is the most culturally diverse city in Maine, you'll find a variety of cuisines, including Vietnamese, Thai, African, Greek, and Indian. The city boasts no fewer than five microbreweries, and dozens of bars, pubs, and nightclubs.

Portland has plenty of attractions, activities and sights for the visitor, and it is also a useful base from which to explore the rest of this beautiful state. Smaller towns in the area like Freeport, Cape Elizabeth, Old Orchard Beach, Saco, and Kennebunkport offer their own amusements that are worth exploring on a trip to the city.

Bar Harbor, located on beautiful Frenchman Bay, is a wealth of history and architecture. Mansions and majestic hotels serve as reminders of Bar Harbor’s past (in the 19th century, it was a favorite vacation spot of society’s upper crust). Today, visitors kayak, explore Acadia National Park, go bird- or whale-watching, and enjoy salty sea air and sandy beaches.

New Brunswick ( Bay of Fundy ) is a land of vast virgin forests, rushing rivers where salmon run free, and fierce tides that are the wonder of the world. It is also the home of tidy farms in gentle valleys, stately Georgian manors on cobbled streets, tea at four, and two distinct cultures - the Acadian French and the Loyalist English, who have co-existed peacefully for four centuries. St. John is Canada's oldest incorporated city, founded by Samuel Champlain in 1604. Most of its residents are descendants of Loyalists from the American Revolution. Explore the lovely St. John River Valley and walk across the longest covered bridge in the world.

Halifax is the provincial capital of Nova Scotia and also serves as the centre of commerce for the whole of Atlantic Canada. It is situated opposite its twin city of Dartmouth, across the Bedford Basin, on the second-largest natural harbor in the world (the largest is Sydney, Australia), and has long been an important maritime centre. Halifax Harbor extends for 10 miles (16km) and is home to North America's oldest yacht club, Northwest Arm. Two toll bridges span the harbor and a passenger ferry connects Halifax and Dartmouth.

Halifax was founded in 1749 by the British in an effort to strengthen their presence in the North Atlantic, and the city retains its British military air. Many historic stone and wood buildings have been preserved, particularly in the restored waterfront area that has become a major tourist attraction, offering shopping, nightlife, entertainment and restaurants.

Halifax is the cultural hub of Nova Scotia and for the Atlantic provinces as a whole. It has a number of art galleries, museums, theatres, and other entertainment facilities, and is home to the Nova Scotia Symphony, and many cultural festivals like the Nova Scotia International Tattoo, Shakespeare By the Sea, The Halifax International Busker Festival, Greekfest, and the Atlantic Film Festival. Visitors can find out more about the city's culture from its free alternative arts weekly magazine, The Coast. The city also offers a range of recreation sites like beaches, parks, and walking trails, and some 'living history' experiences like the firing of the noon day gun at the Halifax Citadel and the working locks of the Shubenacadie Canal.
