(39) Cruising the Northeast United States, Canada and Bermuda

Most New England and Canada cruises depart from New York, Boston, Montreal and Quebec. Some cruises turn into the Lawrence Gulf to Newfoundland before sailing up the St Lawrence River to the walled city of Quebec or French Montreal. Bermuda cruises also leave from northeast cities. Bermuda is a collection of 150 islands (only 20 are inhabited) lying 600 miles southeast of New York in the Atlantic Ocean. Most cruise ships head for the largest island Great Bermuda and ports of King's Wharf, Dockyard and St. George.

  • Best Bet: Book an excursion that includes an authentic New England Clambake.
  • Best Time: For New England and Canada, cruise when autumn foliage is at its peak from late September through October. Thanksgiving in Bermuda, anyone?
