Canada Cruises - Fall Foliage New England Cruises
New England cruiseCanada/New England High Season: September and October quintessential autumn in New England. Here you can see the leaves at various stages of color as you cruise up the East Coast to Canada, plus the cooler temperatures make for nice strolling about in the various port cities.
Low/Shoulder Season: July and August The excellent summer weather makes touring the Canadian towns especially nice (highs hover in the low 70's as opposed to the 50's in the fall). It's also the best time for water sports enthusiasts and families thanks to the warm temperatures in the water and out. In fact, demand for Royal Caribbean's Canada/New England cruises has grown as strong during the summer as it is in the fall.

Newport, Rhode Island In the 19th century, Newport was America's Versailles. It was here that the great merchant princes and robber barons of the Gilded Age erected the elaborate summerhouses they so ingenuously dubbed "cottages." At the height of its splendor, a Newport season was a giddy whirl of grand fétes, yacht races and elaborate beach picnics for assorted Vanderbilts, Astors and Morgans. Today, it is the privileged traveler who marvels at the splendor of great mansions like The Breakers, The Elms, or Rosecliff. Gone are the days when "Tessie" Oelrichs, one of Newport's fabled hostesses, had 12 skeleton ships anchored offshore and dramatically lit for her legendary "White Ball."
Princess cruisesBar Harbor, Maine Standing atop Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, it is easy to see why individuals like John D. Rockefeller felt so strongly about preserving this area's natural beauty. Established by individual donations, Acadia National Park is a stunning intersection of sea-scoured shores, towering cliffs, and forested mountains. Mount Desert Island had been a resort destination well before the establishment of Acadia National Park in 1919. The wealthy flocked to Bar Harbor at the turn of the century, building Newport-style "cottages" that turned the quaint New England town into a fashionable summer resort. It was the efforts of these wealthy vacationers, including John D. Rockefeller, which led President Woodrow Wilson to establish Acadia as the first national park east of the Mississippi. Many of Bar Harbor's great houses are a memory. A catastrophic fire in 1947 ravaged the town and the surrounding forest. But Acadia National Park survived, and today it is one of the most visited national parks in America. Acadia's 35,000 acres are studded with natural wonders: In addition to the stunning landscape, some 50 species of mammals including moose, black bear and white tail deer roam the park.
Halifax, Nova Scotia The capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Canada's Atlantic Provinces, Halifax was once Great Britain's major military bastion in North America. The beautifully restored waterfront buildings of Halifax's Historic Properties recall the city's centuries-old maritime heritage. Stroll the waterfront, and you may find Nova Scotia's floating ambassador, the schooner Bluenose II, tied up to Privateer's Wharf, just as old sailing ships have done for over 200 years. Halifax is also the gateway to Nova Scotia's stunning scenery, including famous Peggy's Cove, where surf-pounded granite cliffs and a solitary lighthouse create an unsurpassed scene of rugged natural beauty.

Oct 26, Saturday Saguenay, P.Q., Canada » 8:00 AM 1:00 PM
  Pronounced “Sag-uh-nay,” this city located about 120 miles north of Quebec might also be called “beautiful,” as it sits on the Saguenay River and offers access to some of the most glorious scenery of North America. The Saguenay River fjord, carved by glaciers eons ago and discovered by Jacques Cartier in 1535, is tremendously deep in places—up to 900 feet—and has relatively warm waters that nourish massive quantities of krill, a favorite food for whales. During your visit, not only are you likely to spot a whale or two, but you will have the chance to appreciate the many faces of the Saguenay region, including majestic cliffs, quaint hamlets, dense forest, agricultural lands and lively city districts.

  For uniquely beautiful scenery, including a marvelous collection of limestone monoliths carved by sea and time, the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River stands alone. Here you will find the town of Havre-Saint-Pierre, a pleasant place from which to launch explorations of Canada’s vast wilderness. Of particular interest is the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve. Established in 1984, the park encompasses a chain of about 40 islands and boasts not only the aforementioned limestone rocks, but also an impressive variety of fauna and flora such as puffins and the rare Mingan thistle.

Oct 30, Wednesday Bar Harbor, Maine, USA » 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
  Cradled off the craggy coast of Maine lies Mount Desert Island and the charming seaport town of Bar Harbor. Earlier last century, when it was the summer retreat of millionaires, it boasted magnificent estate homes, or "cottages," many of which were completely destroyed by the fire of 1947. However, some things never change. The priceless asset of the island's scenic beauty remains untouched by time. Vistas of emerald-green forests and rugged valleys from the superb vantage point of Mount Cadillac remain just as spectacular, and the rugged shoreline scenery is still as awe inspiring as it ever was. The choice is yours. Take a scenic drive through some of Maine's most spectacular scenery or stroll along the picturesque main street with its inviting shops and galleries. Perhaps you will choose to sample some of North America's most delectable seafood at an authentic lobster bake, or cruise the fascinating coastal area.    
       
       
       
       
Oct 31, Thursday Boston, Massachusetts, USA » 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
  Relive nearly four hundred years of history as you explore myriad sights of Boston, a city that exudes pride in its past and future. Superb shopping abounds and sightseeing attractions are legendary. You'll revel in exploring the Freedom Trail, the Old North Church and the Boston Common. A few miles away lie Lexington and Concord where the momentous events that began in 1775 come alive. Boston has not been content to rest on the laurels of its glorious past. Progress is everywhere. Glazed high-rises soar skyward and the colorful waterfront area has been artfully renovated. Your visit to this thriving metropolis is bound to impress.    
       
       
       
       
Nov 1, Friday Newport, Rhode Island, USA » 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
  Newport, Rhode Island, is a stylish, world-famous yachting center with a long tradition of elegance. For almost a century and a half, it was the home of the America's Cup yachting races. The colonial sections of Newport boast many authentic historic buildings, some dating back to the 1600s. However, most impressive of all, are the opulent mansions built at the turn of this century by industrial tycoons along Ocean Drive and Bellevue Avenue. Fashioned after the palaces of Europe their interiors boast lavish use of marble, alabaster, gilt, mosaics and stained glass complemented by magnificent furnishings and fine tapestries. You'll be spellbound listening to the legends and stories of families such as the Morgans, Astors, Fishers and Vanderbilts, all of whom had "cottages" here. Although Rhode Island is America's smallest state, it has a legacy of history and tradition that far outweighs it size.
