The pages of history and stunning natural beauty blend seamlessly as you cruise the color-drenched shores of Canada & New England with Princess. Visit the iconic lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove in Halifax, return to the Gilded Age in Newport and stroll down Boston’s historic Freedom Trail. Or ascend Cadillac Mountain in picturesque Acadia National Park for one of the “Best National Park Experiences,” according to Lonely Planet. On board, you’ll dine like a New Englander on succulent crab cakes and lobster as the allure of the northern seaboard embraces you — and leaves you changed forever.

I sailed the brand-new Enchanted Princess to the Southern Caribbean in March of this year, and I have to say, the ship was STUNNINGLY beautiful. After 35 cruises, the Enchanted Princess is one of my favorite ships. You can check out my vacation pictures in my Facebook photo album here. Of course, in that album there are a lot of Caribbean shots, but there are plenty of pictures of the amazing Enchanted Princess as well. The food, service & entertainment was fantastic on my Enchanted Princess cruise, and I’d love to see you on this ship!

On your Autumnal Enchanted Princess cruise, visiting Bar Harbor in Maine, you may want to look at Princess Cruise’s Shore Excursion to Acadia National Park…it includes a Lobster Bake!

What you will visit:

Acadia National Park/Park Loop Road
First established in 1916, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is the oldest national park east of the Mississippi. A 47,000-acre Atlantic coastline recreation area, it is best showcased by Park Loop Road, a 27-mile stretch designated as one of America’s most scenic byways. It ribbons past such highlights as Otter Cliff, historic Jordan Pond House, and Thunder Hole.
What you will see along the way:
Take in the stunning coastline of Acadia, the first National Park east of the Mississippi. Take in sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests of spruce and pine, and mountain summits. Travel down the Park’s 27-mile Park Loop Road past famous sights including Sieur de Monts Springs, Schooner Head, Thunder Hole, Otter Cliffs, and Jordon Pond House.

Photo Opportunities:
Depending on traffic conditions, you will enjoy two scenic photo stops within the park.

Maine’s lobsters set the standard by which all the world’s lobsters are judged. Your lobster lunch includes a buffet starring lobster (steak is available for non-lobster eaters), and is accompanied by mussels, corn on the cob, and potato. A blueberry dessert made with sweet Maine blueberries is a grand finish to your meal.

While in Halifax —

Or, while in Halifax, Canada, you could visit Peggy’s Cove on another shore excursion with Princess. The shore excursion I’d recommend also visits the Fairview Lawn Cemetery which is where the 121 victims of the Titanic were laid to rest. I’ve done this excursion twice, and I’ve enjoyed the Canadian scenery both times, but visiting in the fall of the year was by far the prettiest time to see this destination.

You don’t have to go far to discover charming ports, stunning national parks and rich history. That’s why Princess Cruises sails to Canada & New England, where you’ll follow in the footsteps of America’s forefathers in cities like Newport & Boston, and see the bright lights of New York City. Whether you’re retracing the past or taking in the East Coast’s legendary autumn colors, you’ll get to experience it all with Princess Cruises, named “Best Cruise Itineraries” (Recommend Magazine).

I love sailing from New York City. Seeing the Statue of Liberty from your ship is something that you’ll never forget.

Are you ready to begin planning your New England Cruise? Give me a shout, and I’ll get started working for you. I did a 5-night Canada cruise out of NYC in October of 2019, and I have to say, I’d love to do it again, but make it longer…visiting Boston, Newport & Rhode Island would be wonderful! You can check out my pictures from this cruise on the Regal Princess here.
