Ports of Call

Boston, Massachusetts - The cradle of American history, Boston rests on its glorious cultural laurels-Trinity Church, Old Ironsides, the Freedom Trail; yet thrusts into the next millennium as a high-tech hub of the computer industry.

Portland, ME - Portland is Maine's business, financial and retail capital and the largest city in the state. Seascapes and cityscapes blend harmoniously in Portland, perched on a peninsula, jutting out into island-studded Casco Bay.

The metropolitan hub of Maine's south coast region, Portland is a progressive, lively city incorporating the character of yesteryear into a modern urban environment. Historic architecture blends gracefully with the new as you stroll along her working waterfront or the cobblestone streets of the restored Old Port section of the city.

Bar Harbor, Maine - Once the summer-society rival of Newport, today Bar Harbor is rich in the legacy of the 19th century millionaires, including Acadia National Park, most of which was donated by the Rockefeller family. Clip clop along tranquil trails in a horse-drawn carriage.

Saint John, New Brunswick - Founded by Loyalists escaping the Revolutionary War in 1785, Saint John has emerged as a thriving port city. Its restored historic waterfront and surrounding natural beauty have made Saint John a wonderful destination.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Halifax, Nova Scotia - Ocean scenery at its best: granite boulders pounded by crashing surf, lighthouses standing sentinel on rocky ledges, a delectable lobster lunch caught fresh from the waters off Peggy's Cove. Back in Halifax, the ramparts of the Citadel await your inspection.
