Overview

CMV Marco Polo - Canada In The Fall Cruise

A golden voyage of discovery

A truly spectacular four week voyage aboard Marco Polo with no less than 17 days spent discovering Eastern Canada during its 150th anniversary of Confederation year. This exciting itinerary includes Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Íles de la Madelaine with an overnight stay in Montréal as you cruise the mighty St. Lawrence River in the fall. This epic voyage retraces Marco Polo’s transatlantic route as the Alexandr Pushkin.
 

Enjoy a call in Cobh in Ireland, for the chance to visit historic Cork.

Enjoy lazy days at sea as Marco Polo sails to Newfoundland arriving at St John’s, North America’s oldest European-settled city, that’s played host to many adventurers, pirates and explorers. Perhaps take an optional tour to Witless Bay Reserve, North America’s largest puffin colony. In Halifax, the oldest British town on the Canadian mainland, visit the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and learn about Samuel Cunard, a native of Nova Scotia, who established an ocean dynasty.

On Prince Edward Island, explore delightful and charming Charlottetown, Canada’s birthplace, before you arrive at Gaspé, one of the world’s most breathtaking destinations. Take an optional boat trip and you may catch sight of whales that live in the ocean surrounding the peninsula.

Relax on board as you gently cruise the St Lawrence River calling at Montréal, a delightfully diverse city with its French influenced St Denis Street, extravagant Plateau Mont-Royal, China Town and Olympic Park. Two days are spent in Québec. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers culture galore and the chance to view this picturesque city from a horse drawn carriage.

You will be struck by the natural beauty surrounding Saguenay where you may opt to see the unique ‘Story of the Kingdom of the Saguenay’ featuring over 80 actors, animals and special effects before continuing to Sept-Îles, where the Innu people occupied the region long before the first European settlers.

At Havre-Saint-Pierre a choice of excursions showcase the natural beauty of the region including the islands of the Mingan Archipelago noted for their unique flora and fauna. Cap-aux-Meules, the second largest island of the Îles de la Madeleine in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, is surrounded by white-sand beaches and red cliffs. Get a taste of Madelinot life as you sample regional delicacies and meet the people. Sydney is a settlement with a diverse history and stunning coastline. Wander around the old town or opt to uncover magical Cape Breton Island, renowned for its beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes.

Return to Newfoundland calling at Corner Brook, for time spent amid the panoramic landscape, and St. Anthony, the starting point for many Arctic expeditions. Bidding a fond farewell to Canada, you begin the return leg of your voyage with time to enjoy the on board facilities or simply relax and unwind before crossing the Atlantic.

Your final call is Belfast where you may choose to immerse yourself in the Titanic story before concluding this monumental commemorative voyage that will leave you with unforgettable memories.

This epic voyage to Canada is a discovery of stunning landscapes, history and culture. Here are just some of the highlights:

  • From St Johns, photograph thousands of colourful puffins, other seabirds and possibly even humpback whales on a voyage to the Witless Bay Reserve, one of nature’s greatest wonders.
  • Prince Edward Island, of Anne of Green Gables fame, boasts stunning scenery rightfully earning it the title of the ‘Garden Province’ of Canada.
  • From Gaspé, take a boat trip to Percé Rock, one of the world’s largest and most spectacular natural arches and a nesting place for thousands of cormorants, kittiwakes and seagulls.
  • Visit the iconic Château Frontenac, the most well known landmark in Québec and considered the most photographed hotel in the world.
  • Admire Montreal’s impressive neo-Gothic Notre-Dame Basilica, North America’s second-largest church and one of the most elaborate, where Pavarotti recorded his famous Christmas concert.
  • Saguenay National Park encompasses the spectacular Saguenay Fjord, one of the world’s largest fjords where marine life thrives including Beluga and Minke whales.
  • The nomadic Innu people were hunters living in tents made of animal skins. At Sept-Îles, learn many fascinating aspects of traditional and contemporary Innu culture, history, beliefs and traditions.
  • From Corner Brook, a picturesque logging town, follow in the foot-steps of Captain Cook and view Newfoundland’s scenic, rugged coastline which was first explored by Cook 250 years ago.
