Boston Stay & Canada New England Cruise
Holiday Ref: 16335
Begin with a 3 night stay in Boston. One of the oldest cities in the United State, founded in 1630, scene of several key events in American History, such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Bunker Hill. Visit some of the historic sites which tell the story of the American Revolution.
Set sail onboard Serenade of the Seas for a beautiful Canadian Cruise visiting the ports of Halifax, Nova Scotia and Saint John, New Brunswick.
Upon arrival into Boston Airport, transfer independently to your overnight hotel. Remainder of the day is at leisure.
Tour iconic Fenway Park baseball stadium, home to the Boston Red Sox. Follow the Freedom Trail to discover Boston’s crucial role in American history or enjoy a historic pub crawl. Head for the 34 islands and peninsulas of the Boston Harbor Islands National Park to see historic lighthouses, a Civil War-era fort, tide pools, hiking trails and wildlife. Then climb aboard a clipper to re-enact your own Boston Tea Party.
Sit back, kick off your shoes and put your feet up during our 'at sea' days, where you can chill in the bar, lounge by the pool or enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa. For simple pleasures, why not try a game of table tennis? Or if you’re feeling energetic, now’s the chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, from spectacular, West-End-style entertainment to adrenalin-charged sports.
Experience life as a Victorian soldier, fire a rifle or listen to ghostly stories at the Citadel, Halifax’s premier historic landmark. Take in the amazing views from Point Pleasant Park, enjoying its cycling and hiking trails, or watch sunbathing seals from Duncan’s Cove. Sail in the stunning waters of Halifax harbour or take a surfing lesson at Lawrencetown beach. Beer, oysters and seafood are local specialities.
Browse the tempting stalls at the City Market, whose roof resembles the upturned keel of a ship. Be blown away by the amazing Reversing Rapids, where the Bay of Fundy’s high tides collide in spectacular fashion with the St. John River, or fly over the rapids on a zip-line. Check out the fascinating New Brunswick Museum for its Hall of Great Whales or try Nordic walking, geocaching, kayaking and mountain biking at Rockwood Park.
Plunge into the great outdoors at Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Park. With 55 miles of bike trails and the chance to rock climb, whale watch, kayak and hike, it’s a super adrenalin boost. See baby lobsters hatching out at the fascinating Mount Desert Island Oceanarium and Lobster Hatchery or discover Maine’s Native American history at the Abbe Museum. Try clam chowder, blueberry pie and lobster roll - delicious!
