Canada-New England Cruises from New York

carnival-glory-suiteNew York City is known as a popular cruise departure point for trips to Bermuda, the Bahamas, Caribbean and across the Atlantic, but another group of cruises travel from New York to New England and Canada.  These cruises are especially popular as leaves of the coastal forests change colors in autumn.

The shortest of these cruises are quick 4 or 5-day round-trips to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.  These are offered by Carnival Cruise Lines and include stops in St. John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It’s just enough time to get acquainted with those historic towns and to view the Nova Scotia coast.

new-york-7-day-canada-new-england-mapThere are many more cruise line and ship options for 7-night cruises to Canada and New England.  Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess Cruises all expand upon the 5-day itineraries to include stops in Boston and Bar Harbor, Maine.  A day in Bar Harbor gives cruisers a chance to do some quick exploration of the beautiful Acadia National Park.

If you can afford to spend more than a week exploring New England and Canada, then you may want to consider one of the 10-day cruises that start in New York and end in Quebec City or Montreal.  After visiting Boston, Bar Harbor and Halifax, these cruises continue north, traveling around the north side of Nova Scotia and visiting Prince Edward Island.  They then go even farther north, around the Gaspe Peninsula and down the St. Lawrence River to Quebec City or Montreal.  These 10-night voyages are offered by some of the luxury cruise lines, including Holland America and Regent Seven Seas.
