Port Spotlight: Canada & New England
by Roy Witman © 2008

Americans often dream of visiting faraway lands or some distant, tropical paradise. We tend to forget that we have some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world - as do our neighbors to the north. Before venturing too far from home, take a moment to discover what wonders can unfold on a cruise to Canada & New England.

Many cruise lines, including Carnival, have begun offering trips to this majestic region over the past few years. The voyages have been met with great success, as Americans rediscover a little homegrown excitement.

If touring onboard a Carnival ship, you'll depart from New York for a four-, five- or seven-day cruise. As you make your way toward Boston, home of the Red Sox and endless bowls of clam “chowda,” legends will come alive. From the history of the Old North Church and Paul Revere's home to the excitement of Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston gives you a way to step back in time.

Continuing north on the Atlantic Ocean, you call on the port at Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada. Take a Hummer back-road adventure and see the best of this coastal town. An experienced driver will escort you to Shipwreck's Cove and other popular sites filled with photo opportunities. Explore Halifax Harbor with tall- ship sailing at the direction of the captain and his crew. Even ride in a horse-drawn trolley and more. From the turning of the leaves in fall to the lapping of waves on the beach in summer, Halifax gives a unique experience year round.

Saint John, New Brunswick offers a delightful array of excursions to choose from, including activities and tours in Fundy National Park. With natural waterfalls and towering cliffs that plunge into the ocean below, this park is overflowing with wildlife and stunning scenery. And, did you know, the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world? You can also experience a phenomenon called “reversing falls.” Every six hours the tide either rises or falls some 28 feet, causing the currents to reverse. It's like nothing you've ever seen before! Bicycle tours, kayak adventures, lobster bakes, harbor cruises, jet boat rides (in the reversing falls) and so much more await you in Saint John.

Because of the historic significance of the cities you'll visit, cruises to Canada & New England make for exceptional family vacations. With a wide range of tours, exhibits and activities, there are excursions for every age range, physical ability and interest. Thinking of a romantic getaway? Canada & New England cruises take you into some awe-inspiring natural beauty sure to rekindle any romance. Walks along the shore, unhurried bike rides across quaint covered bridges and more will have you and your sweetheart falling in love all over again.

Regardless of when, why or with whom you cruise, you'll find a renewed sense of appreciation for America and our northern neighbors.
