Day 2

At Sea

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favorite book

Day 3

St. John, New Brunswick, Canada

Take a stroll through Saint John and you’ll find beautifully-preserved 19th-century buildings, traditional restaurants, and charming boutiques and galleries. In the City Market, the historic heart of the city, a colorful market offers everything from fresh produce and seafood to locally-made goods and souvenirs, as well as a wonderful place to chat with the locals. 

Visit the charming fishing village of St. Martins or take a breathtaking walk above the highest tides on Earth at Skywalk Saint John for a stunning view of the Reversing Falls Rapids, where twice daily, the mighty Bay of Fundy tides push on the Saint John River, forcing it to reverse its flow so that it flows backward. The natural wonders continue at Stonehammer Geopark, which is the perfect place to paddle down Ice Age rivers or zipline over erratic rocks.  

Day 4 - 5

Bar Harbor, Maine, USA

Once called Man-es-ayd’ik, or “clam-gathering place,” by the Wabanaki people, Bar Harbor is relaxed and fun but still retains an air of elegance from its history as an enclave for elites including the Morgans, Vanderbilts, and Astors. It was the Rockefellers who convinced big landowners to donate the land to create Acadia National Park – over 50 square miles of mountains, lakes, hiking, biking, scenic vistas, and dramatic coastline. 

The restaurants and boutiques of Main Street and the neighboring villages on Mount Desert Island offer the simple to the spectacular. Museums are generally small and focused, presenting the history of the island’s Gilded Age, it’s Native American heritage, and the Gulf of Maine’s unique ecosystems. Galleries feature contemporary artists, Maine artists, and historic works. A must-do is the Shore Path. Extending two miles from the town pier, it offers the best sights, sounds and smells of the shore of Frenchman Bay

Day 6

Portland, Maine, USA

Established in 1633 as a fishing village, Portland grew to become not only the largest tonnage seaport in New England but also a charming destination of cobblestone streets, delectable seafood, and history galore. The Old Port district is the center of it all with its restored brick warehouses bustling with shops, galleries, cafés, bars, and restaurants serving the freshest possible lobster. 

The Portland Museum of Art showcases works by Homer, Picasso, Matisse, Monet, and more, while the views of the city from Portland Observatory are a work of art in their own right. Another classic vignette can be viewed at Portland Head Light, Maine’s oldest lighthouse. Take a walk on the Western Promenade, a public park atop a bluff, for majestic river and mountain vistas. And don’t miss the West End, full of Victorian-era homes including the Victoria Mansion museum
