The hotel is part of the Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and with all the stone buildings and winding streets, you'll think you're in Europe. From there, cruise visitors can take the funicular or the "neck-breaking steps" down to the Lower Town. Many structures there date back to Quebec City's beginnings, and highlights include Notre Dame des Victoires, La Rue du Petit Champlain, the port, and the Musée de la Civilisation.

Known to the Mohawk as Kaniatarowanenneh, or big waterway, the Saint Lawrence River encompasses several lakes and three archipelagoes. As the river conducts you from Quebec City to the Atlantic Ocean, watch from your private verandah for Beluga whales, porpoises and dolphins, and countless bird species.

      Full Breakfast
      Lunch
      Dinner

      11. Cruise to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

      Canada's smallest province is an island that seems to be tethered to New Brunswick by the 8-mile (13 kilometre) long Confederation Bridge in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Leave the mainland, cross the bridge, and make a right for Charlottetown. The largest city on Prince Edward Island as well as its capital, Charlottetown's Victorian architecture, abundance of parks and its harbourside location make it an idyllic stop for visitors. Walk the cobblestones of Victoria Row, or visit the house that inspired Anne of Green Gables and explore the wild shores of Prince Edward Island National Park.

      12. Cruise to Sydney, Nova Scotia

      A hundred thousand Gaelic welcomes await you in Nova Scotia, Latin for "New Scotland." At the northeast end of the province sits Cape Breton Island, whose wild and lovely topography include The Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Bras d'Or Lake, and miles of rugged coastline. Sydney is the gateway to Highland village, the scenic Cabot Trail, golden inland seas, and the Fortress of Louisbourg- where every barn, barrack and pipe, drum corps appears just as it did when King Louis' troops occupied the site in 1744.

      Meal(s)
      Full Breakfast
      Lunch
      Dinner

      13. Cruise to Halifax, Nova Scotia

      It's big enough to be the economic and cultural capital of eastern Canada, but small enough to be easygoing and hospitable. Halifax is located on one of the planet's great natural harbours and adorned with landmarks like the Citadel fortress, Pier 21 (Canada's Ellis Island), and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Outside the city, discover the weather-beaten landscape of Nova Scotia's south shore. See craggy coastlines, the boulder topography of Peggy's Cove, and the German village of Lunenburg, so meticulously restored it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

      Meal(s)
      Full Breakfast
      Lunch
      Dinner

      14. Cruise to Bar Harbor, Maine

      For much of the year, sunlight touches the United States first at Cadillac Mountain on the Maine Coast. From the granite-slabbed summit, light tiptoes down across the rest of Mount Desert Isle, Acadia National Park, the town of Bar Harbor and before illuminating the rest of the country. Raw coastal scenery attracted The Hudson River School painters in the 1840s, and their art lured countless visitors to the area. Bar Harbour quickly became a haven for the East Coast affluent and was bejeweled with grand mansions and immaculate gardens. Stroll down the streets of town, relax on the Village Green with the famous Lobster flavoured ice-cream, or hike up Cadillac Mountain.

      Meal(s)
      Full Breakfast
      Lunch
