From the city that never sleeps, to picturesque Canada, this 11-day luxury cruise will uncover a new depth to these incredible cities. See the natural beauty that sweeps across the US and Canada, in addition to the multitude of history, architecture, heritage, art, and culture.
**Please note this itinerary is based on the 16th October 2020 departure. The following is provided as a sample and may be subject to change for other departure dates.
Day 1 – New York
So good they named it twice, New York, is a cultural powerhouse like no other. Liberally scattered with familiar landmarks, world-leading museums, and with an atmosphere and infectious energy found nowhere else, any visit to this one-of-a-kind cinematic city is a frantic, fascinating feast for the senses. Where New York leads, others follow and this city is a proud trailblazer. On the cusp of trends, but with plenty of traditions, New York is a world to itself, and endless opportunities and experiences await between its audacious skyscrapers. Whether it’s cycling through the leafy oasis of Central Park, rising to the iconic cityscape views atop the Empire State Building or walking to Brooklyn’s hipster appeal across the Brooklyn Bridge’s chained expanse, New York City feels at once familiar and fantastical.
Day 2 – Newport (Rhode Island)
A prime slice of New England coastline, Newport serves up colonial splendour, striking seascapes, and some of the freshest seafood around. One of America’s most historic cities, drop in on the oldest library in the country, visit an incredible fortress city, and wander beside spectacular summer houses. With wild beaches, wineries, breweries and festivals for every season, Newport has lost none of its enticing allure. The fresh, ocean air of Newport was much sought after during the Gilded Age, as the rich and powerful made their mark, building grand and stately mansions overlooking the waves.
Day 2 – Cape Cod
Because Silversea’s ships are so small, this Cape Cod Canal Transit is a rare must for any travel savvy guest. With two fixed bridges over the canal, clearance is a problem for bigger ships but Silversea’s small size ships allow them to glide through as if they were a passenger yacht. The surrounding scenic spectacle is something truly to behold. With the crowds gone and the weather turning cooler and the leaves turning colour, the compelling charm of the canal is legendary. Watch for migrating birds, such as the rare Roseate tern or the more common tree and barn swallow, and be on the lookout for year round residents such as the Great Blue Heron and the Red-tailed hawk.
Day 3 – Boston
Historic yet revolutionary, few places embody the American dream quite as well as Boston – and you’ll feel the strong independent streak, and pride in the founding ideals of freedom and independence wherever you go. Skyscrapers mingle harmoniously with cobbled streets, and every footstep here promises new tales of legend, daring and valour, as you walk through the pages of history and immerse yourself in the stories of one of the USA’s oldest cities. The flashing colours of Fall – a period when the foliage around Boston explodes with blazes of red, orange and purple – attract visitors from across the world, more than compensating for the northerly city’s harsh winters.
Day 4 – Bar Harbor Maine
One of the first spots in the USA to see the first slivers of honey-coloured light each morning, Bar Harbor was the escape of choice for the elite and artistic during the 19th century. They flocked here to indulge in cool, salty sea breezes and sweeping coastal scenery, and left behind a scattering of elaborate, soft-hued mansions in their wakes. Nowadays, many of these ornate structures have discovered a new lease of life, transforming into quirky cute shops and restaurants, and helping downtown to hum with its effortless, easygoing charm. Get to know Bar Harbor with a wander along Shore Path, taking the looping stroll out along the bay, and spotting the Porcupine Islands emerging from the Atlantic’s waves.
Day 5 – Halifax
A city that thrives on a diet of music, outdoor events and ocean-faring history, Nova Scotia’s capital – and Atlantic Canada’s largest conurbation – oozes salt-licked charm. The star-shaped fortress of Halifax Citadel sits above the city, while down below, Halifax revolves around its bustling harbour. Here, jet-skis skid across the water and heritage ships jaunt out to scenic offshore islands. Music carries on the waterfront’s breeze as summer’s events play out, while a hefty population of pubs and restaurants provides all the space required for sitting back and relaxing.
Day 6 – Sydney
Surrounded by raw ocean and gorgeous coastal scenery, Cape Breton island’s only city is a remote and awe-inspiring place. Formed around a former steel plant, Sydney now thrives on welcoming visitors, ushering them into the very heart of beautiful Nova Scotia. Delve deep into the heart of this scenic island, to see extraordinary natural sights and learn of the customs of the native Mi’kmaq people in Membertou Heritage Park. Wander the tidy new boardwalk, and hike among wild and rugged coastline, capped by flashing lighthouses.
Day 7 – Charlottetown
Known as the birthplace of Canada, owing to its role as host of the conference that would eventually lead to the formation of the Canadian Confederation – Charlottetown is a celebration of all things Great White North. Perched just offshore on Prince Edward Island, there’s a small-town charm to the locals’ genuine smiles that is instantly disarming. Despite its capital status, the city’s welcoming demeanour, pretty timber lighthouses and low-key coastal location, make Charlottetown an easy-going, idyllic island escape.
Day 8 – Day at Sea
Day 9 – Cruise Saguenay River
Dissecting an ice-age fjord, the most southerly in the northern hemisphere, the mighty Saguenay River rolls through banks of dense forest scenery, before finally unloading into the grand St. Lawrence River. A vivid display of fall hues flashes through the trees each year, while the full range of greens is present in its forests of evergreen pines. All combined, it makes for one of the most scenic and spectacular river stretches in North America. Slicing through no fewer than three National Parks, the river guides you on a scenic, spectacular journey through tree-coated landscapes, alive with varied flora and fauna.
Day 9 – Saguenay
The gateway to the Saguenay Fjord, the city lies at the intersection of a triad of sprawling national parks, amid some of North America’s most impressive scenery. Embark on adventures to witness leaping waterfalls, forest-clad fjord banks, and whales crashing athletically offshore. Learn more of Saguenay’s heritage, with a tour of the picturesque pulp mill, which dates back to the 1800s, and now houses a museum. Elsewhere the Petite Maison Blanche is a humble wooden house that was one of the few buildings to survive the floods of 1947.
Day 10 – 11 Quebec City
Established by the French settler Samuel de Champlain before the British landed on these shores, Quebec City – initially known as New France – is one of North America’s oldest cities. Montreal may be bigger, but the elegant French flavour is just as strong here, with street-side cafes spilling out, and characterful cobbled neighbourhoods to explore. Towering over the banks of the Saint-Lawrence River, Quebec City relishes in details and eccentricities, and has reams of rich history and beautiful architecture – like the famous Château Frontenac. This chandelier-clad castle watches over the city and is said to be the world’s most photographed hotel.
Day 12 – Montreal
A festival and foodie heaven, Montreal is a fascinating French flavoured destination of old-time European splendour and glittering urban charm. An elegant place of history, pavement cafes, and cobbled streets – Montreal wears its French heritage with a healthy dash of on-the-pulse Canadian cool. Set on the banks of the mighty St. Lawrence River, you can head to beaches and elegant parks that open out onto the pretty waterfront. Mount Royal is a jewel of the city, and on warm days locals spill out onto its sloping grasses to soak up the sun. Rise to the top, to look down over the reaching skyscrapers of downtown. The city’s massive botanical gardens are alive with the sounds of flowing water and surreal floral sculptures. The vivid colours of the impressive Notre-Dame Basilica’s interior add more vibrancy, while a diverse set of museums and galleries offer plenty of space for both traditional and contemporary art.
