Remote, vibrant and rich, Greenland is unlike anywhere else in the world. Discover Norse ruins, Inuit cultural traditions and historic colonial buildings nestled among dramatic fjords and colossal mountains on this extended sailing that takes you from the stunning natural beauty of the Canadian Maritime Provinces to the more populated southwest coastline of this massive island. Greenland’s northerly position, largely above the Arctic Circle, results in natural phenomena such as summer’s midnight sun and winter’s Northern Lights. Exciting adventures await you aboard the Caribbean Princess, from staterooms that offer a more restful sleep to endless tempting new dining options and fresh experiences for kids and teens.
Embark on your cruise in New York City and visit the following ports:
Halifax, Nova Scotia: Stroll through the beautiful Victorian-style public gardens in Canada’s “City of Trees.” Learn the city’s role in the Titanic disaster at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic or one of the local cemeteries where the lost were buried. Or take a scenic drive along the coast to Peggy’s Cove, a charming fishing community with a much-photographed lighthouse/post office.
Sydney, Nova Scotia: You shouldn’t be surprised to hear a bagpipe in this city on Cape Breton Island where Scottish immigrants settled. The Port of Sydney is home to the World’s Largest Fiddle, which plays a medley of songs composed by a local musician. Take an excursion to Baddeck and the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, where you can learn about the inventor of the telephone, or discover the area’s mining history on a tour of a real coal mine at the Cape Breton Miners’ Museum.
Nuuk, Greenland: Greenland’s capital and largest city is home to a population of 16,000 and displays a magnificent vista of mountains and valleys. Shore excursions are not available here, but the town is easy to explore on your own. Stroll the streets and talk to the locals, or purchase an Inuit handicraft. Explore the culture and history of the island at the Greenland National Museum, or visit the quaint 18th-century church, Vor Fresler Krike (Our Savior Church).
Qaqortoq, Greenland: If you’re a seasoned traveler with a taste for destinations untrammeled by modern tourism, this is the ultimate port of call. Qaqortoq means “White Palace” in Greenlandic, and this small town of about 3,400 is the cultural and commercial center of Southern Greenland. Explore the ruins of a stone church dating back to the Viking period, or take a factory tour at Great Greenland, known for producing fine quality animal skins and coats. Shore excursions are not available in this port.
Nanortalik, Greenland: Nanortalik means “place of bears” in Greenlandic. Summer visitors to this extraordinarily isolated port may spot polar bears on the offshore flow ice. The waters also teem with seals and Minke, humpback and fin whales. Dramatic boulders dot the landscape and are well known to the world’s elite rock climbers. Visit the Nanortalik Open Air Museum, which features original colonial buildings, Norse ruins and items of Inuit culture. Shore excursions are not available in this port.
St. John’s, Newfoundland: The oldest city in North America is a busy fishing port with a good natural harbor bounded by hills. Its history and cultural spirit show strong Irish and Scottish influences evident in its pubs and music. Check out Signal Hill, the site where the first transatlantic wireless transmission was received in 1901, or head to Bird Islands, a refuge for marine birds like bald eagles, kittiwakes and Atlantic puffins.
