With a French-Canadian feel, highlights include Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal, Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel and the old port district. The city boasts a number of fascinating museums in the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History and Montreal Science Centre as well as the scenic Montreal Botanical Garden. If looking to get out of the city, go to Mount Royal just outside the centre for sweeping views or the gorgeous skyline.
Old Quebec has a unique feel as you explore the quaint streets and squares, and the church of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine- the oldest pilgrimage destination in North America at over 350 years old. The surrounding boasts the 30m waterfall of Parc de la Chute-Montmorency and the gorgeous woodlands, lakes and rivers of Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier. In addition, learn all about the indigenous population of Canada at the Huron-Wendat heritage.

Visitors can easily explore the highlights of the city on foot, admiring the Halifax waterfront and tasting a range of craft beers at multiple breweries before enjoying the exhilarating atmosphere of live ice-hockey. Many free performances are frequently held on the harbour, such as acrobatics, dancers and magicians.
You will be at sea on day 10 while travelling from Halifax to Boston.
Among the oldest established cities in the US, Boston has a long history from the days of independence up to modern times as the home of the world famous Boston Red Sox. A trip to Boston has to include catching a game of baseball and a walk along the Freedom Trail, with stop-offs at renowned sites telling the story of the American Revolution. Visitors can also find authentic, classic Boston cuisine at many different Boston Food Trucks across the city.
There are simply too many places to mention when it comes to the Big Apple but highlights have to be: the Statue of liberty, Empire State Building, Central Park, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge, the Natural History Museum and the Met art museum- not to mention all the cool sights of downtown Brooklyn, swanky Manhattan and the classic skyline from Rhode Island. New York is a bucket-list destination that just cannot be missed.
