Canada by Cruise Ship

We could spend a whole week here in Montreal and not begin to scratch the surface. But it’s time to board our ship and begin our cruise adventure. Tonight we’ll relax on board with an excellent dinner, and then have a restful night in our cabin. Tomorrow, we’ll wake up in Quebec City for a whole new adventure.

Ah, Canada. What’s not to love?

Top Port Adventures

We’d love to write a whole article on each port city, but here are our favorite “Must-Do” activities in each location. The shore excursions can be purchased directly from Holland America Line.

Quebec City

There’s no need to purchase a shore excursion in Quebec City. You can spend hours on your own just wandering around the cobblestone streets, churches and shops near the port. Quebec City is the closest you can get to the feel of Europe on this side of the Atlantic. Take the funicular to the top of the mountain, where you’ll find more charming alleyways and gorgeous architecture.

Okay, so the men in our family never really got into this one, but what American girl doesn’t remember reading Anne of Green Gables? Visit Cavendish, the setting of Lucy Maude Montgomery’s books. The bus ride to the homestead takes you on a scenic drive through rural Prince Edward Island.
