Canada’s capital city is located on the south bank of the Ottawa River and on the mouth of the Rideau Canal. Politics and pageantry abound in the city known for its year-round festive flair. Ottawa is the political centre of Canada and site of world-class art galleries and museums, including the most visited museum in Canada, the Canadian Museum of History. This museum is located only meters from where Canadian Empress docks in Hull, Quebec.

All cruises to or from Ottawa feature two significant Canadian waterways. The St. Lawrence and the Ottawa River each have their own natural gifts and historic relevance, and the attractions that we will visit on this two-river cruise will help you to see and understand the difference.
