When to Cruise?
The season for cruises in this region runs from May to October. Bermuda offers a warm summer climate around 80F. The New England and Canada season is concentrated on September and October when the Autumn foliage is at its best.
Eastcoast USA hosts the warm seas of Bermuda, the Autumn colours of New England and Canada and the battlefields of Colonial USA. Bermuda offers warm summer weather, great beaches and British ambience on these self governing islands. New England is popular in the Autumn (Fall) with its spectacular colours and cruises will often be combined with visits to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Some cruises will also explore the St Lawrence River as far as Quebec or Montreal. Then there are cruises southward along the Eastern seaboard that will explore the colonial heritage and Civil War battlefields of the USA.


Bermuda
Cruises to Bermuda can be taken from New York or Miami but are increasingly available from some other eastern seaboard cities. Bermuda is a collection of 150 islands (only 20 are inhabited) lying 600 miles southeast of New York in The Atlantic Ocean. Most ships will head for the largest island Great Bermuda where there is a choice of interesting ports - King's Wharf, home to the historic Royal Dockyard - Hamilton, great for shopping - St George's, picturesque, colonial architecture, churches and museums. Here you will find a more refined atmosphere than in the Caribbean.
 
New England and Canada
New England and Canada cruises depart from New York, Boston, Montreal and Quebec. Travelling north you will be able to enjoy the spectacular autumn colours in the Arcadia National Park from ports like Bar Harbour. Halifax in Nova Scotia will provide a rich nautical history in its museums and from Sydney you can explore Cape Breton Island. Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island is small and rustic, typical of old-fashioned Canada. Turning into the St Lawrence Gulf cruises may call at Corner Brook in Newfoundland before sailing up the St Lawrence River to the walled city of Quebec or French Montreal.
 
Colonial USA
Colonial USA cruises will sail southward from New York or other north-eastern cities, or in combination with Canada and New England cruises from Montreal. They will call at Norfolk for Colonial Williamsburg, Charleston where the Civil War started and Savannah offering a wealth of history and architecture, Port Canaveral for the Space Centre or Orlando before arriving in Miami.
