Cruising to Canada & New England

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Of course you’ve heard about the colorful leaves, and perhaps you’ve seen pictures of the charming lighthouses, and maybe you’ve even tasted the lobster – but you haven’t really experienced Canada and New England until you’ve cruised through this magnificent region of North America and seen it for yourself!

Words can’t describe the rush of standing against the wind atop a rugged cliff while watching the waves battering against the rocks below. Or the feeling in your heart when you catch that first glimpse of the New York skyline and Statue of Liberty, her torch glimmering in the sun. And imagine the smile on your loved one’s face when they slurp a juicy raw oyster fresh from the sea! Even the history that used to put you to sleep in grade school now comes to life – echoed in the sites of events that shaped Canada, the United States and beyond. You’ll experience all of this and more when you cruise to Canada and New England.

Canada and New England cruise itineraries come in all lengths – from 5-night getaways to multi-week voyages – offering something for all types of travelers on any budget. Our wide range of itineraries travel northbound, southbound and roundtrip while departing from several different ports – such as Boston, Cape Liberty, Montreal, New York City, Quebec City and others.
