    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 in cultivated Boston, and exciting New York City, the ‘Big Apple’.
