There’s no better way to explore the coastline of New England and Eastern Canada than on a cruise. Traveling by sea, you can fully appreciate the picturesque villages, scenic landscapes and nautical charm these ports of call are known for. And Norwegian Cruise Line offers sailings from local ports, making it a quick and easy getaway.
Here are five reasons you should consider Canada and New England for your next cruise.
Cruise From Home
When you’re coasting up the coast of New England and Canada, you can take advantage of homeport cruises from Boston and New York. You’ll be in the bustling city at one moment and sailing the Atlantic the next.
Scenic Views and Seaside Towns
On your cruise up the coast, you can stop at picturesque ports of call like Bar Harbor, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
In Bar Harbor, Maine, you can explore the natural beauty of Acadia National Park. In Nova Scotia, you can take a shore excursion to the idyllic fishing village of Peggy’s Cove. And on Prince Edward Island, you can walk in the footsteps of Anne of Green Gables.
Quebec City is a port of call you won’t want to miss. Explore the European-style streets of Old Quebec, see the walls and gates surrounding the only fortified city north of Mexico and tour the historic Chateau Frontenac hotel overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Don’t forget to visit the majestic Montmorency Falls if you can.
When it comes to seafood, New England and Canada’s east coast can’t be beat. You can pull your own lobster traps in Portland, Maine, sample the local shellfish and attend a “downeast” lobster bake in Bar Harbor, eat fresh-caught fish in Peggy’s Cove, do a walking tour of Charlottetown’s delicacies and more. There’s lobster everywhere you turn, but it’s so fresh that you’ll never have enough.
The Norwegian Cruise Line Experience
Sure, the shore excursions and ports of call are great, but what about the ship? You’ll sail in comfort on Norwegian Cruise Line, whose ships offer a variety of dining options, live entertainment and even an onboard spa. NCL’s freestyle philosophy of cruising means that you can decide what you want to do and when you want to do it.
