Itinerary
2014-09-canada-map

DAY 1 | Sept. 16. New York, New York
Embark on your luxury cruise aboard Regatta in New York, the “City that Never Sleeps,” packed with renowned museums, theaters, and world-class restaurants and shops.

DAY 2 | Sept. 17. Newport, Rhode Island
Perhaps best known for its sumptuous Gilded Age mansions modeled after European palaces, Newport is a charming, renowned New England resort city. Opulent summer homes built along its shores include two famous 19th-century Vanderbilt estates, Marble House and The Breakers. Spectacular coastal scenery found along the scenic Cliff Walk complements the awe-inspiring architecture, while further down the rocky coastline is the picturesque Castle Hill lighthouse.

DAY 3 | Sept. 18. Boston, Massachusetts
From the colonial Georgian elegance of Beacon Hill and the iconic revolutionary landmarks along the Freedom Trail to the beauty of Boston Common—America’s oldest public park—New England’s largest city abounds with history and architectural grandeur. Skyscrapers dwarf storied landmarks while shopping, dining and glorious scenery afford excellent ways to experience one of America’s oldest and most influential cities.

DAY 4 | Sept. 19. Portland, Maine
Maine’s largest city is represented by a phoenix, an icon of its turbulent past filled with devastating fires and numerous restorations. The city’s historic charm lies within the cobbled streets of the Old Port, Victorian-filled neighborhoods and 19th-century architecture; while its vibrant spirit is radiated in a bustling waterfront.

DAY 5 | Sept. 20. Bar Harbor, Maine
With Acadia National Park at its backdoor, its rocky shoreline edging the sparkling blue waters of Frenchman Bay and the towering granite cliffs, Bar Harbor boasts some of the Eastern Seaboard’s most stunning vistas—making it easy to see why it’s enchanted the likes of the Rockefellers, Astors and Vanderbilts for over two centuries. Today, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts flock to this seaside paradise.

DAY 6 | Sept. 21. Saint John, New Brunswick
Known as the Loyalist City and established by those escaping the Revolutionary War, Saint John is nestled upon the bluff-lined shores where the St. John River rushes into the Bay of Fundy. Remarkable red-brick architecture and 19th century Victorian style buildings are some of the city’s most delightful features, while the bizarre Reversing Falls, a daily tidal phenomenon that reverses the flow of the Saint John River, is a favorite with many.

DAY 7 | Sept. 22. Halifax, Nova Scotia
Founded by Great Britain in 1749, British military vibes and Scottish traditions are alive and well here. As capital of Nova Scotia and the biggest city of the Maritime Provinces, Halifax manages to evoke a small-town ambience with the thriving spirit of its heritage. Citadel Hill, a star-shaped fortress, pays homage to its roots with military-clad guides and ceremonial guns fired daily, and the restored waterfront is an inviting scene for entertainment, restaurants and shops.

DAY 8 | Sept. 23. Sydney, Nova Scotia
A colonial seaport, Sydney is situated on the Atlantic side of lovely Cape Breton Island. Once a flourishing center for mining and steel, Nova Scotia’s second largest city is now a historic hub with several landmarks from the late 1700s, including the Cossit House, the Jost House and St. Patrick’s, the city’s oldest Catholic church.

DAY 9 | Sept. 24. Corner Brook, Newfoundland
Off the eastern shores of Canada, fringed by mountains and at the mouth of the Humber River, Corner Brook’s natural beauty and history await you. Here, you’ll find the monument honoring Captain James Cook, the first to map the area in 1767, and the Corner Brook Museum, with its marine artifacts, forestry exhibits and collections from aboriginal peoples.

DAY 10 | Sept. 25. Cruising the St. Lawrence River

DAY 11 | Sept. 26. Quebec City, Quebec
Where the St. Charles River meets the St. Lawrence, old-world European flavor seeps into the heart of French Canada—elegant squares, a wonderful “joie de vivre” and winding cobbled streets. North America’s only walled city and home to an array of architectural gems, including the iconic Chateau Frontenac and the Parliament Building, whose design is reminiscent of 1850s France.

DAY 12 | Sept. 27. Montreal, Quebec
Montreal is a magnificent city that blends the best of North America with European charisma. A UNESCO City of Design and home to Mount Royal—the three-peaked mountain from which the city takes its name—Montreal is both a cultural and natural wonder. Overnight on ship.

DAY 13 | Sept. 28. Montreal, Quebec
Disembark and bid farewell to Regatta.
