From the rugged coastlines of Maine, the historical sites of Boston, the spectacular autumnal foliage of New England, the buzz of the 'Big Apple' of New York, to the sun-drenched, volcanic tropical islands of Hawaii, where you can tour a pineapple plantation, observe playful whales, take a tour of Pearl Harbour, or a volcano helicopter ride, there's a wealth of experiences to be enjoyed in the USA and Canada. Perhaps you'd prefer America's Western Coast, with the glamour of Los Angeles and the landmarks of San Francisco, or the picture-postcard beauty of Canada's Nova Scotia and New Brunswick regions.
From east to west, USA to Canada, there's an astonishing diversity - an eclectic mixture of contrasts, from historic towns to modern cities, and natural beauty. Whether you're into outdoors adventures, or prefer to browse through museums, or shop 'til you drop, there is something for everyone a cruise around the USA and Canada, with a wide range of itineraries to suit what interests you most.
From mid-May to October, with Autumn the most popular time to visit to make the most of the famous 'Fall Colours', you'll find a range of Canada/New England cruise itineraries, typically lasting between four to fourteen days, and ideal for tailoring with pre- and post-cruise stays in cities such as New York, Boston, and Montreal. While these are most commonly fly-cruises, it is possible to enjoy a Canada/New England cruise sailing out of the UK, crossing the Atlantic; these, naturally, are longer itineraries, with usually about four or five days sailing each way. Many cruises to the islands of Hawaii, also cruise further afield to the tropical islands of the South Pacific, throughout the year, either as part of world cruises or on itineraries which also include Australia and New Zealand.
