    The wonders of the East

    After introducing the drama of Niagara Falls, followed by stops in beautiful Ottawa, Québec City and Montréal, this itinerary will present you with another side of Canada altogether – its unique East Coast.

    The Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the largest estuary in the world, and a beautiful waterway to navigate, ushering you along a coast that is both wild and beyond easy categorisation. This is a part of Canada best enjoyed from the deck of a luxury cruise ship, and you can look ahead to incredible scenery, with stops in charming cities and splendid island ports, before concluding with a complete change of pace in cultivated Boston, and exciting New York City.

      Welcome to Eastern Canada

      Highlights:
      Niagara Falls cruise, CN Tower

      The roar of Niagara Falls is deafening as you cruise to its base. When he first viewed Niagara Falls, Charles Dickens wrote, “I listened for the roar; and was constantly straining my eyes in the direction where I knew the falls must be, from seeing the river rolling on towards them; every moment expecting to behold the spray. Within a few minutes of our stopping, not before, I saw two great white clouds rising up slowly and majestically from the depths of the earth. That was all. At length we alighted: and then for the first time, I heard the mighty rush of water, and felt the ground tremble underneath my feet”. Tonight, you will be treated to stunning views of the city and Lake Ontario from your restaurant in the CN Tower where you will celebrate a ‘Welcome to Canada’ dinner with your Tour Director and fellow travellers.
