Oceania Cruise: Canada and New England

When: September 30, 2017 - October 10, 2017 (iCal)



“Without question, the spirit, cooperation, caring, and friendliness of the group was wonderful.”


Our cruise on the INSIGNIA along, the scenic, craggy coasts of Canada and New England, will afford us views set against the season’s autumn foliage. In Quebec City, stroll the cobbled streets past mansard-roofed houses and magnificent churches and explore the landscape of Saguenay and its museums and artisan workshops. Experience Sydney’s St. Patrick’s Church Museum; walk along the lively waterfront in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Visit the only city in the Bay of Fundy, Saint John. View the blue waters, granite cliffs, and the treasures of Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. Explore the colonial history and architectural highlights of Boston and take in coastal vistas while traversing the rugged Cliff Walk at Newport, Rhode Island.

This Oceania cruise is an opportunity to delve into the rich history, culture, and cuisine of each destination. A variety of optional shore excursions (at additional cost) are carefully selected by Go Next from Oceania Cruises collection, and will be available approximately four months prior to departure.

Day 1: Montreal, Quebec, CAN

Day 2: Quebec City, Quebec, CAN
Where the St. Charles River meets the St. Lawrence, old-world European flavor seeps into the heart of French Canada — elegant squares, a wonderful “joie de vivre,” and winding cobbled streets.

Day 3: Saguenay, Quebec, CAN
Nestled in the remote wilderness of northern Quebec, Saguenay combines exquisite natural splendors with museums, artist workshops, and boutiques.

Day 4: At Sea

Day 5: Sydney, Nova Scotia, CAN
A colonial seaport, Sydney is situated on the Atlantic side of Cape Breton Island. Once a flourishing center for mining and steel, Nova Scotia’s second-largest city is now a historic hub with several landmarks from the late 1700s.

Day 6: Halifax, Nova Scotia, CAN
As capital of Nova Scotia and the biggest city of the Maritime Provinces, Halifax manages to evoke a small-town ambience with the thriving spirit of its heritage.

Day 7: Saint John, New Brunswick, CAN
Remarkable red-brick architecture and Victorian style buildings are some of the city’s most delightful features, and the Reversing Falls, a daily tidal phenomenon that reverses the flow of the Saint John River, is a favorite with many.

Day 8: Bar Harbor, Maine
With Acadia National Park at its backdoor, its rocky shoreline edging the sparkling blue waters of Frenchman Bay, and towering granite cliffs, Bar Harbor boasts some of the Eastern Seaboard’s most stunning vistas.

Day 9: Boston, Massachusetts
From the colonial Georgian elegance of Beacon Hill to the iconic Revolutionary landmarks along the Freedom Trail, New England’s largest city abounds with history and architectural grandeur.

Day 10: Newport, Rhode Island
Perhaps best known for its sumptuous Gilded Age mansions modeled after European palaces, Newport is a charming New England resort city. Opulent summer homes built along its shores include two famous Vanderbilt estates, Marble House and The Breakers.

Day 11: New York, New York
