Canada Cruise: 11 - nights in October 2012.

What better way to explore the vastness of Canada than by the coast, on a cruise. Leaving Quebec city, the cruise heads out to Saguenay, Quebec. Saguenay is located in a depression in the Canadian shield with a somewhat more temperate climate than the surrounding region, allowing agriculture and human settlement to take place. The relatively small and concentrated Lac St-Jean area where the city is located can be described as an isolated "oasis" in the middle of the vast remote wilderness of Northern Quebec. The next port of call is Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Corner Brook is a city set against a backdrop of awe-inspiring natural surroundings including forest, rocky coastline, marvelous fjords and a plethora of offshore islands. Though the landscape is rugged, the people of Newfoundland are known for their warm, friendly hospitality. In Halifax, Nova Scotia, a bagpiper will welcome you to this "City of Trees" that offers the warmth and charm of a small town along with all the excitement you would expect from a great city. Explore the historic sites in Sydney, Nova Scotia and stop by St. Pierre Miquelon, a group of small French islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. Prince Edward Island is easy on the eyes and even easier on the spirit. With miles of lush rolling landscape, red sandstone cliffs, antique farmhouses and warm welcoming smiles, it's really no surprise some call it the "gentle island." And charming Charlottetown is your gateway to it all. The island's biggest "city" is amazingly easy to explore on foot. Stroll the waterfront, wander the many shops and sample the seafood specialties at an outdoor café or two, then hit the trails and tour the quiet countryside.
