WHY BOOK A NEW ENGLAND CRUISE?
Beautiful scenery, sleek cities, dramatic mountains and stunning coastal views are just a few of the reasons to book an exciting New England Cruise with Cruise Nation. With stops in Boston, Portland, Bar Harbour and more, you’ll be able to explore New England’s charming coastal towns and vibrant cities, before continuing your journey onto both Canada and Alaska. History buffs will tell you New England is the place to discover America’s history, and Independence is celebrated here in an unrivalled style. Massachusetts is particularly suited to literature-lovers, with many historical landmarks dedicated to the great American writers that called this state home, including Mark Twain and Jack Kerouac. In more recent terms, New England has become a “something-for-everyone” destination, with upmarket Martha’s Vineyard, the beautiful beaches of Rhode Island, modern Connecticut and the country charm of New Hampshire and Maine. No matter what draws them in, everyone agrees that the best time to visit New England is during the fall, when the magnificent colours of the autumn foliage can be viewed in all their glory. Vermont, a state which near 80% covered by thick forest, is considered the best place to witness this stunning natural show.
NEW ENGLAND CRUISE HIGHLIGHTS
Take in some of America and Canada’s most beautiful coastal destinations, with a great, low cost New England cruise deal from Cruise Nation:
Massachusetts’s capital city is one of the oldest and most historic in America. Founded in the early 1600’s, Boston played an important role in the American Revolution, the history of which can be discovered in depth at the city’s many landmarks and by walking the fascinating Freedom Trail. One of the most popular stops on a New England cruise, Boston might be old but it’s also one of the most progressive cities in the country. The art and music scene is eclectic, the cuisine – particularly the seafood – rivals the best in the world and sports are considered a way of life, rather than just a hobby. The city is also a great base for day trips to Martha’s Vineyard and, if you’re visiting in the fall, the ideal jumping off point for an autumn foliage tour.
French Quebec is often referred to as Canada’s “country within a country” – with language, style and a heavy mix of North American and European culture that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s this unique combination that makes Quebec such an interesting place to visit, with a charming, UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town and endless chic sidewalk cafes to discover. Packed with historical sites and old-world architecture, Quebec’s Old Town is the ideal place for a leisurely stroll, leading you along winding cobbled streets that hide 17th century houses and museums. As one of North American’s oldest settlements, history lovers will find plenty of attractions to keep them entertained, with sights such as the star-shaped Citadel and Grande Allée being particularly popular.
With its fresh sea air, beautiful parks and growing cuisine scene, it’s easy to see why Nova Scotia’s seaside capital is frequently rated as one of the best cities in the world for quality of life. A popular stop on a New England and Canada cruise, you’ll have the chance to explore the highlights of Halifax, from the historic waterfront to the city’s live music joints, at your own, leisurely pace. The friendly locals, affectionately nicknamed “Haligonians”, are more than happy to show new faces in town a good time and, with an expanding craft beer scene, you can try out a local brew or two before checking out the city’s nightlife. Historical points of interest include the star-shaped Citadel Hill, Halifax House and Gardens and Pier 21 museum.
Choose a Cruise and Stay New England deal, which includes accommodation in New York, for the opportunity to spend a few days in the city that never sleeps before you embark on your cruise. With flights included in many of our great value cruise packages, New York is one of the most popular cruise and stay destinations. Stay in the city before you board your cruise, with plenty of time to discover the Big Apple’s amazing array of landmarks, shops, neighbourhoods, entertainment and eateries. Choose to spend your days exploring the bright lights of Times Square and Broadway, the designer boutiques of Fifth Avenue, the vast and peaceful Central Park or the biggest landmarks in town – from the Statue of Liberty to Grand Central Station and the Empire State Building. No matter what kind of traveller you are, you’ll never run out of things to see and do in the world’s most famous city.
