Indulgence in Eastern Canada

Duration: 8 days  Visiting: Canada

English and French cultures fuse into this romantic journey through the picturesque and historic cities of Eastern Canada. From high rise Toronto to the thundering thrills of Niagara Falls, and quality time in the beautiful cities of Ottawa and Quebec, this Luxury Gold journey is a mixture of excitement, culture and quaint charm. Dine at the family-run Le Moulin de Saint Laurent on Ile d’Orleans in a historic former flour mill where Chef Martin Pronovost has prepared an evening of seasonal cuisine and music. In Montreal’s Saint-Joseph Oratory you’ll learn how a pipe organ works and enjoy a short recital of the different styles of organ music. The castle like surrounds of the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac provides you with a historic home in Old Quebec City. This moderately paced journey consists of nearly all two-night stays. Even so, being a shorter duration and with so much included, time often seems to fly by. Of course, that’s why the relaxing Canada and New England Cruise is such a popular addition, allowing guests the best of both worlds.
