USA & Canada

Cruise The USA and Canada

Between them, the USA and Canada serve up welcoming and historic cities not to mention a diverse palette of scenery, encompassing a myriad of experiences. Sun-kissed California and Florida. The aloha welcome of Hawaii. Canada’s majestic wildernesses. The history and autumn colours of New England.

East Coast US and Canada cruises combines iconic cities and incredible scenery. Many of these follow a route that stretches from irresistible New York, through historic Boston and New England into the beautiful landscapes and national parks of Canada.

On cruises to America and Canada you may set eyes on the wild beauty of Acadia National Park near Bar Harbor, especially in autumn, which reveals landscapes tinged with yellow, orange and deep red foliage.

Canada takes its conservation responsibilities very seriously and there are several national parks which bear testament to their great strides of achievement. They not only show off the natural beauty to best effect but give great insight into the history and culture of the communities who originally colonised the area.

A Transatlantic Crossing allows guests to immerse themselves in a world free from traffic and screens. As an alternative to flying between North America and Europe, give yourself the luxury of time as you cross the ocean in style.
