After departing from Toronto, the cruise ship will cross the St. Lawrence Seaway before dropping anchor in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. Here, travelers can likely spot some of the Canadian wildlife the country is known for, or take a culinary tour where you can discover some local favorites.

The next day the cruise will stop in Quebec where you can stroll through the old town and hike around the picturesque Mont-Sainte-Anne. On day 6, the boat will stop in Saguenay where you can board a high-speed “zodiac” that will take you to the fjord.

On days 7 and 8, you will stop at Sept-Îles and Cap-aux-Meules in Quebec, where you can tour the archipelago or go whale watching and seal watching on Brion Island.

Next, the cruise will drop anchor in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, where travelers can listen to local music, learn about the province’s rich history, or, of course, eat through the city.

After a day of sailing in the Atlantic Ocean, the boat stops in Halifax where you can take a Segway or kayak tour of McNabs Island.

Then, after another day at sea, the cruise will end directly in the Big Apple, where travelers will disembark the boat and visit New York or head straight home.

Now, with the 2022 cruise dates all completely sold out, there are still tons of reservations available for 2023 in May and August. That being said, it will cost a pretty penny, as prices to board start at $11,695.
