Colonial history and rugged coastlines, craggy seaside villages and opulent mansions -- these are just a few of the things that make a Canda New England cruise so appealing. Each northern Atlantic port offers a glimpse into the past, as well as present-day natural beauty. You can learn about America's forefathers in Newport and Boston, while Bar Harbour is known for its stunning rocky shores and towering cliffs.
In Atlantic Canada, Halifax and Saint John offer a glimpse in to a different kind of city life, one where voices are quieter, the pace is slower, and a city library (bibliotheque) takes up prime real estate, overlooking Saint John's harbor from a wharfside mall.
Cruising Canada and New England is not only about what you can see and learn, though. These itineraries offer a plethora of opportunities to peddle, paddle and hike -- in national parks, along coastal roads and through color-filled forests. Speedboat rides in the Bay of Fundy, whale-watching excursions, and white-water rafting are all available, too.
