Date Port Arrival Departure
Sep 13, Sunday
New York City, New York, USA »   9 pm
Welcome to one of the world's most famous and exciting cities. Broadway, Times Square, the Empire State Building and Central Park are just some of the celebrated spectacles this bustling city has to offer. Giovanni da Verrazano was the first European to glimpse Manhattan Island in 1542, but the area was not explored until Henry Hudson arrived in 1609. It is said that Peter Minuit bought the entire island from Native Americans for $24 worth of beads and trinkets in 1629 - the biggest real estate bargain in history. In 1664 the Dutch surrendered to a British Fleet, and the town was renamed New York in honor of the Duke of York. George Washington was inaugurated here in 1789, and for a time, New York served as the country's capital. Since then, the city has grown spectacularly and has become one of the most exciting and electrifying cities in the country - not to mention one of the most rewarding to visit and explore.

Sep 15, Tuesday
Bar Harbor, Maine, USA » 8 am 4 pm
Cradled off the craggy coast of Maine lies Mount Desert Island and the charming seaport town of Bar Harbor. Earlier last century, when it was the summer retreat of millionaires, it boasted magnificent estate homes, or "cottages," many of which were completely destroyed by the fire of 1947. However, some things never change. The priceless asset of the island's scenic beauty remains untouched by time. Vistas of emerald-green forests and rugged valleys from the superb vantage point of Mount Cadillac remain just as spectacular, and the rugged shoreline scenery is still as awe inspiring as it ever was. The choice is yours. Take a scenic drive through some of Maine's most spectacular scenery or stroll along the picturesque main street with its inviting shops and galleries. Perhaps you will choose to sample some of North America's most delectable seafood at an authentic lobster bake, or cruise the fascinating coastal area.
Sep 16, Wednesday
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada » 9 am 5 pm
As your Crystal ship approaches the pier, bagpipers bid a warm welcome to Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia and the most Scottish of all Canada’s great cities. Fall in love with Halifax’s architectural blend of old and new. The Citadel Fortress, which dates back to the city’s founding in 1749 with the present complex completed in 1856, stands over the thriving downtown area, where modern office and hotel blocks nestle alongside the exquisitely restored Historic Properties waterfront shopping area. Shoppers will delight in the authenticity of buys from colorful Scottish tartans to pewter and superb hand-knit woolens. Nova Scotians claim they have the freshest air and warmest smiles in Canada.

 

 

 

 

        

Sep 17, Thursday
Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada » 9 am 5 pm
Sydney, situated on Cape Breton Island's eastern shore, was settled in 1783 by New York and New Hampshire colonists loyal to the British crown and is Nova Scotia's third largest city. The opening of coal mines and a steel plant attracted a large number of Scottish and Eastern European settlers in the early 1800s. The settlers' ethnic legacy has left an indelible imprint and has created a vibrant urban and rural landscape ripe for exploration. Outside Sydney, natural wonders abound. At the Fortress Louisbourg National Historic Park, visitors will step back in time to 1740, when this fortress town was France's North American administrative, military and commercial center. Sydney is also the gateway to the spectacular beauty of the Cape Breton Highlands and the Bras d'Or Lakes, where sailing opportunities flourish. Baddeck, site of Alexander Graham Bell's summer home, is also within easy reach. Whatever your desire, the treasures of northern Nova Scotia will come alive as you delve into this delightful port city.

Québec City, P.Q., Canada » 8 am 6 pm
Québec stands proudly beside the majestic St. Lawrence River, resembling no other city in the world. Its cuisine, language and traditions combine to make this a unique cradle of French civilization in North America. Within fortress walls high atop Cap Diamant, the old city is a sheer delight for lovers of history. Here, magnificent churches, cobbled streets, fragrant gardens and chic boutiques all vie for your attention.

Sep 20, Sunday
Montréal, P.Q., Canada » 8 am  
Cosmopolitan Montréal is Canada's second-largest city and cultural capital. It is the third-largest French-speaking city in the world and has been dubbed the "Paris of the North."

Cultural contrasts are widespread as, although Montréal is predominantly French in culture, ethnic diversity abounds.

This is a city of great charm, as you'll discover in its sympathetic blend of the old and the new, from the Place d'Armes and its beautiful 18th-century buildings to the ultra-modern downtown area.

Montréal received international acclaim when it hosted Expo `67 and the 1976 Summer Olympic Games. Its exuberant vitality promises to keep it at the forefront of great world cities well into this century and beyond.
