Savor the treasures of French Canada, from the Parisian-like streets of Montréal and the quaint charms of Québec, to idyllic isles of pristine beauty dotting famed northern seaways.

Date Port Arrival Departure
Sep 20, Sunday
Montréal, P.Q., Canada »   6 pm
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.

Sep 22, Tuesday
Sept-Ĩles, Canada » 8 am 3 pm
Named for the seven islands sitting off shore in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, Sept-Îles captivates visitors with its stunning landscape and rich heritage. From sandy beaches to the meandering Moise River to a dense boreal forest, the scenic wonders of Sept- Îles constantly unfold before your eyes. Locals are particularly proud to call this region home to the Native Amerindian Innu people, whose culture and traditions have left an indelible mark on the islands.
Sep 23, Wednesday
Magdalen Islands, Canada » 10 am 5 pm
Having been isolated through most of its history, the Iles de Madeleine or the Magdalen Islands offer a tranquil retreat from the outside world. Still largely unspoiled by urban trappings, life here is simple and relaxing. It’s actually possible to take a stroll along the beach and not encounter anyone or anything but birds and breezes. And you will see birds. Over 250 species of birds migrate to the islands to nest, including many that are on the endangered list. Also making their home here are harp seals, which draw eco-tourists to watch the winter births of baby harp seals in the adjacent Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
Sep 24, Thursday
Saint-Pierre & Miquelon, France » 9 am 4 pm
Just south of Newfoundland, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon are not Canadian, but instead belong to the French Republic. In fact, they are the last vestiges of France’s colonization of the continent. As such, they are true French towns, making them a unique destination unlike anyplace else in North America. The more urban of the two is Saint-Pierre, with its landmark Pointe aux Canons Lighthouse greeting visitors who enter the harbor. Miquelon, on the other hand, is smaller, with just 600 inhabitants. Every year, the island hosts a Basque Festival, reflecting the Basque ancestry of many of the residents.

Sep 26, Saturday
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. Just outside the city, you'll discover a veritable riot of fall colors, North America's largest shrine, picturesque villages and an impressive waterfall. At the end of the day, there is the tempting opportunity to discover the French art of good cooking at some of North America's finest restaurants.
