If you like your cruise to be formal, dressy and upmarket then Cunard could be perfect for you. Their three ships with their distinctive look, offer quality and class and their service matches the same standard. Their white glove service high tea is one of the true highlights of ocean cruising overall and an experience not to miss.

Full Itinerary

Day 1: New York

See the bright lights of the Big Apple, international mecca and melting pot, with expensive brownstones, colourful neighbourhoods like Greenwich Village and the Upper West Side and the legendary Central Park. Explore some of the world's great museums. Some come just for the shopping: there’s Bloomingdale’s on Lex, Tiffany’s on Fifth, Barneys and the unique boutiques along Madison.

Day 2: At Sea

Day 3: Bar Harbor, Maine

There’s a sense of natural paradise around Bar Harbor. Funny coincidence then, that it was once named Eden – in honour of an early settler – Sir Richard Eden. From a secluded haven for artists, to elitist holiday retreat, Maine’s oldest summer resort also enchants visitors with its immense natural beauty in the fall. In Acadia National Park, take to Cadillac Mountain – the East Coast’s highest with outstanding views of the Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay.

Day 4: At Sea

Day 5: Corner Brook, Canada

Corner Brook is located on the west coast of Newfoundland, an island which separates the mouth of the St Lawrence River from the Atlantic Ocean, creating the Gulf of St Lawrence. It’s set against a backdrop of the Long Range Mountains, which form the northernmost section of the Appalachian Mountains.

Day 6: Sept-Iles, Canada

Almost 400 miles northeast of Quebec City, Sept-Iles stands in the Côte-Nord region of eastern Quebec. It’s at the northernmost reaches of the region’s paved road system and, indeed, of our cruises to New England and Canada. It looks out onto the point where the St Lawrence River widens into the mighty Gulf of St Lawrence. While this corner of Canada is better known for endless landscapes of pines forests, lakes and grizzled mountains, you may also appreciate the long stretches of sandy beach that run along the shore here, just moments outside of the centre of town.

Day 7 - 9: Quebec, Canada

When you cruise to Quebec City you will dock at the inland port, the oldest in Canada, just minutes from the city centre. As you travel towards the city, the contrast between the port area and the Old Town is astonishing. The history and romance seeps from the very fabric of the buildings and cobbled streets. But this is more than mere nostalgia. The only fortified city in North America, Old Quebec is a one-off and you will see nothing else like it in Canada.

Day 10: Saguenay, Canada

As it flows into the St Lawrence River, the Saguenay River winds through a majestic fjord to reveal a host of picturesque villages nestled along its shores. As you cruise to Saguenay Harbour, prepare yourself for a rich and rewarding experience. This is a place where natural beauty wraps itself around a vibrant, urban conurbation in the French-speaking region of Quebec to the east of Canada.

Day 11: At Sea

Day 12: Sydney, Canada

Off the east coast of Canada lies a group of large islands which make up the region of Nova Scotia. The port of Sydney is located along a long waterway, creating Canada’s ocean gateway to Cape Breton Island.

Day 13: Halifax, Canada

The star-shaped fortress stands guard to this fascinating city. Stand beside Sir Samuel Cunard himself – our visionary Nova Scotia founder has been immortalised in bronze and again presides over his elegant, hometown waterfront. Visit Halifax gardens – a tranquil tapestry of manicured lawns, winding paths and iron railings – crowned by an ornate Victorian bandstand.

Day 14: At Sea

Day 15: New York

See the bright lights of the Big Apple, international mecca and melting pot, with expensive brownstones, colourful neighbourhoods like Greenwich Village and the Upper West Side and the legendary Central Park. Explore some of the world's great museums. Some come just for the shopping: there’s Bloomingdale’s on Lex, Tiffany’s on Fifth, Barneys and the unique boutiques along Madison.

Day 15 - 21: At Sea

Day 22: Southampton

Southampton, United Kingdom The United Kingdom's premier passenger ship port, Southampton was home to the great transatlantic liners of yesteryear. The port serves as your gateway to Southern England’s magnificent historic sites, national landmarks, charming villages as well as the great metropolis of London. Southampton is the ideal starting or ending point for a memorable voyage.
