I had the opportunity to enjoy a cruise with my family this past September. We had a great time visiting fisherman towns and seeing the fall colours along the cost of New England and Canada.
I’m excited to share the highlights from the trip! … I’ll keep the writing brief and let the pictures tell the story.
The first bit to know is that these cruises are huge! They’re full of activities, restaurants, bars, games, arcades, theatres and shows; packing a bit of everything so that everyone has something they can enjoy. Some of the highlights from our cruise were:
- The Views
- The Pools and Jacuzzis
- The Activities and Games!
- The Live Music Shows!
Our first stop was at Portland, Maine. We began the day taking the “Portland Highlights” bus which that drove us around the town; showcasing a lighthouse and other historical sites. The best part of Portland was enjoying lunch in the small town of Freeport.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Our next stop was at Bar Harbor, Maine. This day we all hopped on a bus and took the “Ultimate Island Experience” which took us all over the island to see:
- Acadia National Park
- Cadillac Mountain
- Thunder Hole
St. John, New Brunswick
The third stop of the cruise took us all the way to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. Vickie and I decided to have our own DIY day and walk around the town; which took us to some pretty interesting sights:
- Old Market Square
- Loyalist House and Loyalist Cemetery
- The Reversing Falls
- Tim Horton’s, Poutine and Beavertails!
Hallifax, Nova Scotia
Our last stop brought us to the far corner of Hallifax, Nova Scotia. This was by far our favourite stop. Our family rented a car and roadtripped all the way to the lighthouse and historical fisherman’s town of Peggy’s Cove where we enjoyed some beautiful views and a terrific day.

I just want to appreciate the opportunity to share and enjoy time with family.
Cheers ’till next time!
