Sunday, October 13, 2019 — Quebec City, Canada
Quebec City, Canada, is one of North America’s oldest and most beautiful settlements. The sense of French provinciality still echoes off the walls of this old city in the language, cuisine and architecture. Your full-day Meeting the First Nation of Wendake private group excursion will help you discover the most French city outside of France. Drive by Place-Royale, a beautifully restored market square of typical 17th- and 18th-century stone architecture in the heart of the Lower Town, which was the site of Samuel de Champlain’s first settlement. It is also the location of the oldest standing Catholic church in North America, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires. Your first stop is in Wendake, where the Huron-Wendat People, also known as the “People of the Longhouse,” live. This nation occupies the estuary and valley of the St. Lawrence River. It was Chief Huron-Wendat Donnacona who welcomed explorer Jacques Cartier to Stadaconé in the 1530s. You’ll have a VIP visit of the Huron-Wendake Museum, which protects and promotes the heritage of the Wendat people, plus an exclusive visit to the local church and a stop at a traditional longhouse for a presentation and storytelling. Continue to La Traite Restaurant and discover dishes inspired by First Nations cuisine, prepared with what has been hunted, fished or gathered. Next make a photo stop at Cap-Diamant, named after the shiny stones explorer Jacques Cartier mistook for diamonds. From here you will have spectacular views of the St. Lawrence River and surrounding countryside. Your final stop is at Dufferin Terrace at Château Frontenac. Located 200 feet above the waterway, it was here that Samuel de Champlain built his fort in 1620. You’ll have free time to explore the area and enjoy views of the St. Lawrence River, Île d’Orléans and the Laurentian Mountains before returning to the ship. Your ship remains in port overnight, so you’ll have plenty of time to see more of Quebec City or experience its nightlife. Breakfast and dinner aboard ship and lunch on your excursion; overnight aboard ship.
PLEASE NOTE: This excursion involves moderate walking with some steps and uneven ground.

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 — Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada
Nestled in the harbor of the same name, Charlottetown exudes both a nautical charm and a Victorian sensibility. On the south shore of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown’s red soil adds to the area’s natural beauty. Your full-day Charlottetown & the Land of Anne private group excursion starts with a drive through the capital of Prince Edward Island and past Government House, the official residence of the Lieutenant Governor of the province. Then travel along the coast to the land of Anne of Green Gables. Anne, the central character of the Anne of Green Gables novels, loved the farmland and the friendliness of the people of this area. Follow the Blue Heron Trail through farmland and fishing villages to the seacoast and stop at a fish market to see the catch of the day. Continue on to Prince Edward Island National Park, one of the smallest but most popular of Canada’s national parks. Stop at Green Gables House, which author Lucy Maud Montgomery often visited as a young girl. This farm is believed to have been the primary influence on the setting for her world-famous series of books. In 1937 the house and surrounding farmland became part of Prince Edward Island National Park. Head next to the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company, where you will enjoy lunch with a breathtaking view of the picturesque River Clyde. Your final stop is at Confederation Bridge and Gateway Village. Opened in June 1997, the bridge is one of the world’s longest continuous marine span bridges. There will be time to take pictures and see a multimedia exhibit on Prince Edward Island’s transportation history during a stop in Gateway Village before returning to the ship. Breakfast and dinner aboard ship and lunch on your excursion; overnight aboard ship.
Thursday, October 17, 2019 — Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
The Big Fiddle of Ceilidh, the world’s largest fiddle at 60 feet tall, welcomes you to the port in Sydney. It plays a dedicated medley composed by a local musician and delights all who hear it with a march, a stratespey and a reel. Sydney lies on the coast of Cape Breton Island, which throughout history has served as a melting pot of sorts for the many immigrants who have arrived on Canadian shores, including Acadians, Eastern Europeans, Scotsmen and Africans. Just outside the city environs lies a wealth of sightseeing possibilities, including nature walks, seafaring museums and a Mining Museum where you can take a guided tour of an historic coal mine. Book an optional excursion or explore the city on your own. All meals aboard ship; overnight aboard ship.
Friday, October 18, 2019 — Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Located on the shores of the world’s second-largest natural harbor, the “City of Trees” adds to the pastoral beauty of Canada’s maritime region. Board a motorcoach for a full-day Peggy’s Cove & Halifax Highlights private group excursion. It starts with a scenic ride to the idyllic fishing village of Peggy’s Cove, which dates back to 1811. Its year-round population numbers 60. Every season thousands of tourists visit the cove, Lighthouse Point, the gift shops, marine studio, restaurant and church. Get a true taste of Nova Scotia at lunch at the local restaurant before returning to Halifax to spend some free time walking in Halifax’s historic waterfront, where you can explore the eclectic mix of shops and galleries. Continue with a city highlights tour that takes you past St. Paul’s Church, Canada’s oldest Anglican Church; City Hall; the Old Town Clock, built in 1803 to keep the garrison punctual; and Province House. Learn about Halifax’s war years and the heroism of the citizens who lived through the devastating Halifax Explosion of 1917. Head last to the Halifax Citadel, a fortress built in 1858 to protect the city and one of the main ports of entry into British North America. Its hilltop location offers visitors a panoramic view of the harbor and the city. Breakfast and dinner aboard ship and lunch on your excursion; overnight aboard ship.
