Holland America Canada and New England Cruise

11 nights from €2,689 per person Including Flights


Begin your cruise aboard the Holland America Volendam, in the picturesque city of Boston, before heading on to Maine and Nova Scotia. Experience the cosmopolitan pulse of Halifax and the historical Sydney that offers up great views of the Cape Breton Highlands. Idyllic Charlottetown will be your next stop, before you make your way to the unspoiled landscape of the Gulf of St Lawrence. Along the way you will have the opportunity to explore the natural landscape of each destination, from the coastal views to the native wildlife. Spend a couple of nights in Montreal before your flight home.

Holland America Volendam prides itself in being a smaller sized ship to explore the East Coast. Life on board is all about the indulgent experiences, including learning to make your own glass of wine to enjoy at dinnertime, rejuvenating with a relaxing treatment at Greenhouse Spa & Salon, and enjoying fantastic live music and shows at The World Stage.(TM/HAL)

Day 5
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Cosmopolitan and a culture hub, Halifax has become a popular destination thanks to its crisp, clean air and leafy parks that are dotted around heritage buildings. Head to the rugged shore and take in the sights of Peggy’s Cove – a ragged example of the topography here.

Sydney is the gateway to a rich history, beautiful landscapes that take in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the Bras D’Or Lake.
