Canadian Connection Cruise

6 nights, 7 days
Starting at $3144 CAD per person

This 6 night, 7 day cruise travels the length of the St. Lawrence River between Kingston and Quebec City. Follow the route of the first French explorers as they blazed a trail through Lower Canada to Upper Canada, or follow in the path of impressive Seaway freighters as they travel from the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. These cruises highlight the role of the St. Lawrence River as the connection between English and French Canada, and the distinct cultures of the various regions – the Loyalist port towns of Eastern Ontario, the economic and cultural vitality of Montreal, or the European charm of Quebec City.

All Canadian Connection cruises either start or end in beautiful Quebec City. There, you can experience the old world charm of Europe and experience Quebec City’s unparalleled joie de vivre (love of life) found nowhere else in North America. See Old Quebec (the only walled city in North America) with its massive ramparts still bolstering the Plains of Abraham; and behold the imperial green-roofed towers of the legendary Chateau Frontenac. Quebec City is a world-class city with an international airport and rail hub, so it is an excellent choice both as a cruise departure point or final destination. However, travellers should be aware that the overnight ports and attractions will be slightly different depending on whether your cruise is travelling east or west, so please check both itineraries to find the cruise itinerary that piques your interest.
