If you haven't spent much time visiting our neighbor to the north, you really ought to cruise Canada. From the old-world charm of the Maritime Provinces on the east coast to the rugged landscapes of Vancouver and British Columbia, Canada has much to offer travelers. And what better way to experience it than from the deck of a cruise ship?

The eastern seaboard offers a wide variety of both geographical and cultural pleasures when you cruise Canada. Summer is the high season for Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, where you can visit the childhood home of the author of Anne of Green Gables, explore the Acadian culture that gave rise to the epic poem Evangeline and the Cajuns of New Orleans, and tuck into a lobster supper on the beach. In autumn, "leaf-peepers" throng the decks of cruise ships to enjoy the truly spectacular fall foliage.

The old port of Montreal, center of the French-speaking Canadian culture, retains its cosmopolitan ambience. From the European-style markets of St. Laurent to the renovated harbor district to the distinctly upscale suburbs, Montreal is a feast for all the senses. With Montreal's incredible array of desirable restaurants, fine dining is a particularly important activity here!

It's Easy To Cruise Canada

For visitors from the United States, it couldn't be simpler to cruise Canada. English is the primary language in much of the country, and is generally spoken everywhere. You don't need a passport or inoculations, the food and customs are familiar, and you can be assured of a warm welcome from the Canadian people.
