Uncover the natural beauty, history and culture of the Northeast on one of our newest ships, Norwegian Joy. In Québec City, explore the cobblestone streets of Old Québec — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — to see historic sites and immerse yourself in the French-Canadian culture. Enjoy a scenic island drive from Charlottetown and tour Cavendish where the famous Green Gables Heritage Place is located. From Sydney, travel back in time to the 18th century at the Fortress of Louisbourg — the largest fortified city outside of Europe — as costumed actors reenact life during this era.
Québec City lies on the Saint Lawrence River and is divided by steep bluffs into Upper Town – which includes the old quarter – and Lower Town. Perched atop Cap-Diamant, the old quarter is the only walled city in North America and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city of Saguenay, formed in 2002, is comprised of three boroughs: La Baie, Chicoutimi and Jonquiere. Chicoutimi and Jonquiere are situated on the shores of the Saguenay river and La Baie is found on the whimsically named, the Baie des Ha Ha! This French-speaking region is north of Québec City and is considered a small oasis in the midst of the nearly uninhabited Canadian wilderness.
Opulent clapboard villas lead the way towards Charlottetown’s beautiful Victoria Park. Color is everywhere – from the Victorian architecture to the red sandstone cliffs. Sample homemade island jams, visit the Anne of Green Gables homestead and stroll the boardwalk.
The coal industry brought immigration from many parts of the world, giving Sydney a multicultural mix of over 50 ethnic backgrounds and a global flavor to its history. Located on Cape Breton Island, Sydney is also an ideal jumping-off point for scenic adventures.
Admire the rugged coastline that surrounds Halifax, the world’s second-largest natural harbor. This beautifully preserved city is Nova Scotia’s capital and was founded in 1749. Take steps through history and climb to The Citadel to witness the Old Town Clock.
