If you’re ready to explore the Great White North this fall, you can take the MSC Eastern Canada Cruise up the Atlantic Coast from New York all the way up past Nova Scotia to Quebec City. Prepare for the gorgeous autumn foliage, the picturesque sea-side towns, and the romantic architecture of the most famous French-speaking city on this side of the Atlantic.

MSC Cruises combine a passion for sea voyages with a love of world cultures to provide their guests with an unforgettable experience. Having set out for their first voyage from Sorrento, Italy, MSC Cruises went on to establish the largest privately-owned cruise line in the entire world.

Ports of Call:

Leaving from New York, the MSC Meraviglia will take you on an 11-day cruise to Boston before hitting Portland and Bar Harbor in Maine. Then you’ll cross the border and visit New Brunswick, Halifax, and Sydney in Nova Scotia and finally Quebec City before returning to dock again in the Big Apple.

Exciting Excursions:

You’ll never lack for activities on this Eastern Canada cruise.

When you arrive in Boston, you’ll get the chance to walk the Freedom Trail and visit the Boston Harbor where angry American colonists once dressed up as Native Americans and threw an entire shipment of British tea into the sea as a form of rebellion. You’ll marvel at Harvard Square and go shopping at Quincy Market.

You’ll hop back on the boat to make your way up to two of Maine’s most charming port towns. You’ll walk the cobblestone streets and appreciate the coast’s rugged beauty. If you’re lucky enough, there might even be a lobster bakeoff. Make sure not to miss the granite peaks at Acadia National Park or the expansive views from the top of Cadillac Mountain.

When you make your way up to Nova Scotia, Canada’s popular maritime province, you’ll get the chance to enjoy the extreme tides at the Bay of Fundy, the lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, and the friendly puffins and seals that populate the waters around the offshore islands. You can also enjoy water sports, whale-watching, and Halifax’s star-shaped citadel.

There’s no way not to fall in love with Quebec City. It almost seems as if the city was picked up from Europe and placed on the other side of the Atlantic. You’ll wander down narrow, cobblestone streets lined with bistros and boutiques and make your way around the Citadelle of Quebec and the Place Royale. Indeed, the beauty and romance of this French-speaking city will blow you away.

The Ship:

You’ll never lack for entertainment while aboard an MSC cruise. From fantastic Cirque de Soleil sea-side shows to Broadway-style productions, MSC is the only cruise line to offer 6 different shows on a 7-day trip. Opera, contortionists, acrobats, and pirates, the entertainment is phenomenal.

You can dine when you please in the ship’s main dining room. They offer buffet-style meals featuring the chef’s signature dishes inspired by the company’s Mediterranean heritage. You can even choose from pre-prepared kosher meals, express lunches, and vegetarian and gluten-free options.
