Date Port Arrival Departure
 
Oct 5, Friday
Montréal, P.Q., Canada (overnight) »   Embark 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.

Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada » 8 am 12 m
 

French for “Three Rivers,” Trois-Rivières indeed is situated at the confluence of rivers, but only two—the Saint-Maurice and the Saint-Lawrence. Islands sitting in the middle of the Saint-Maurice split the waterway into three channels, perhaps making “three rivers” accurate after all. The number of rivers aside, a tally of Trois-Rivières’ appealing characteristics adds up to a nice sum. Founded in 1634, the city is the second oldest in New France, after Quebec City, founded in 1608. Trois-Rivières boasts a rich history, one tilled and replanted after a great fire destroyed much of the city in 1908. On fresh ground, the town rebuilt with wide avenues and a sense of renewal. The Old City was declared a Historic Sector in 1964; the strikingly arched Laviolette Bridge was completed in 1967; and a tradition of closing the main thoroughfare to traffic has been established, creating a pedestrian-friendly environment for appreciating century-old buildings and joining festive events.

 
Oct 7, Sunday
Québec City, P.Q., Canada » 8 am 9 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.
 
Oct 8, Monday
Saguenay, P.Q., Canada » 9 am 5 pm
 

Pronounced “Sag-uh-nay,” this city located about 120 miles north of Quebec might also be called “beautiful,” as it sits on the Saguenay River and offers access to some of the most glorious scenery of North America. The Saguenay River fjord, carved by glaciers eons ago and discovered by Jacques Cartier in 1535, is tremendously deep in places—up to 900 feet—and has relatively warm waters that nourish massive quantities of krill, a favorite food for whales. During your visit, not only are you likely to spot a whale or two, but you will have the chance to appreciate the many faces of the Saguenay region, including majestic cliffs, quaint hamlets, dense forest, agricultural lands and lively city districts.

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.
 
Oct 11, Thursday
Corner Brook, Newfoundland » 10 am 5 pm
 

Rugged mountains, beautiful fjords, jagged headlands and thick forests all converge on the island of Newfoundland, located off the east coast of Canada, making Corner Brook an ideal place from which to launch outdoor pursuits. Walking trails, scenic drives, boating and fishing can all be enjoyed amid the splendid scenery.

For an introduction to the area's history and a chance to indulge in some culture, explore the streets of the town. The Corner Brook Museum and Archives, housed in a 1926 registered heritage building, features exhibits about the region's paper and fishing industries. Of particular note are displays relating to British explorer James Cook, the first to survey and record the area's geography. Corner Brook also has a thriving arts community, with several art galleries showcasing the work of local photographers, painters and sculptors who find inspiration in the picturesque landscapes of Newfoundland.

 
Oct 12, Friday
Gaspé, Québec, Canada » 8 am 6 pm
 

Remote, northerly, French by discovery, English, Scotch and Irish by immigration, the Gaspé Peninsula can be claimed by all who set foot upon its glacier-formed landscape to be a great spot for some R&R. Honorable mentions of French explorer Jacques Cartier, who claimed the region for France, abound, including namesake Mont Jacques-Cartier, the peninsula’s highest peak. The characteristics contemporary adventurers write home about are surely similar to the ones early travelers found enthralling: a wild, cliff-edged coast, the comely St. Lawrence River and a rugged interior with an abundance of interesting fauna and flora. Under the auspices of self-discovery and for the sake of some peace and quiet, no doubt you will relish your chance to chart a course to Gaspé.

 
Oct 13, Saturday
Baie-Comeau, P.Q., Canada » 8 am 5 pm
 

Situated on the shores of the Saint Lawrence River near the mouth of the Manicouagan River, Baie-Comeau could hardly be in a more delightful spot. Beauty abounds, with sparkling river waters flowing, verdant forests unfolding and a network of bike paths crisscrossing the town, linking parks and meandering by pretty buildings. With such impressive natural surroundings, perhaps it is no wonder that Baie-Comeau is named after a naturalist: Napoléon-Alexandre Comeau, who hailed from Quebec.

Here in Baie-Comeau, the forest has a history of being both a naturalist’s haven and a commercial resource. The region’s first sawmill was built in 1898, and Baie-Comeau was founded in 1936 with the establishment a paper mill, built by Robert R. McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune. Your own visit might also be centered on the area’s forests with a visit to Maison de la Faune, where a multimedia exhibition, vivarium and walking paths introduce you to the creatures and foliage of this riverside locale.
