Saint John, New Brunswick

Saint Johns Landscape

Grab your camera for this first port city, the largest in New Brunswick! Saint John lies at the mouth of a river with the same name, comprised of a culture-rich, metropolitan center and the Caledonia Highlands, which are a must-see on your fall cruise! These highlands, rising high above the coastline, are known for the effervescent foliage that come from the abundance of spruce, balsam fir, birch, and of course, maple trees. The bright colors are in their prime in September and October, so the time to book your autumn getaway is now!

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Inside the Alexander Keith brewery

Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia, and was once the gateway to Canada for those immigrating into the country.

Explore the sea-faring history of the region at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic! Since there is so much to see and do in this incredible city, you’re bound to be hungry by the end of the day. Established in 1820, the Alexander Keith Brewery is a top destination for their world famous beers, but if you truly want to dine like the locals, try a donair!

Sydney, Nova Scotia

Cape Brenton Highlands

Located on Cape Brenton Island, Sydney is a cultural epicenter. The unique culture—a conglomeration of Scottish, Acadian, Eastern European, and even African—is part of Sydney’s draw, along with the Cape Brenton Highlands. If you’re feeling adventurous, make sure you pack hiking boots for a hike on the Cabot Trail, where panoramic views of the forest-covered mountains will take your breath away when the wind dances through the vivacious colors of the autumn leaves. If you love your cruise to Sydney, Nova Scotia, make sure you visit the home of Alexander Graham Bell in Baddeck so you can call us at 1-800-377-9383 to book your next one!

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Anne of Green Gables reenactment

No matter where you are in the city of Charlottetown, locals will tell you that you’re never more than 15 minutes away from everything. On foot. Regardless, this former fishing port is the largest city on Prince Edward Island (PEI) and is teeming with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. For the foodies, PEI is the primary provider of mussels to North America, and one of the top seafood destinations in the world! Make sure you have a meal, or at least sample, some of the freshest seafood you will ever taste. If you’re more of a reader than an eater, you can also visit the inspiring landscapes that shaped the children’s classic novel, Anne of Green Gables.

Corner Brook, Newfoundland

A trail along the Corner Brook Stream

Corner Brook was originally discovered by Captain James Cook in the mid-18th century, and his legacy remains in the city at the peak of Crow Hill, an overlook with amazing views of the Bay of Islands from nearly 900 feet up. Enjoy the arts in downtown Corner Brook at the Grenfell Art Gallery, showcasing native Canadian art, or grab something special to remember your cruise from one of the mom-and-pop boutiques that line the streets. The outdoorsman will have plenty to do here as well, whether you’re spelunking through the Corner Brook caves, hiking the Corner Brook Steam Trail or hauling in a 40 pound salmon!
