Canadian Connection

6 nights, 7 days

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 of these cruises either start or end in beautiful Quebec City. There, you can experience the old world charm and grace of Europe. You will encounter Quebec City’s unparalleled joie de vivre (love of life) found nowhere else in North America. Enjoy 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.
