9 Night Cruise sailing from Detroit to Montreal aboard Victory II.
Witness the splendor of the French-Canadian countryside as we sail through the St. Lawrence Seaway, Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. Enjoy an idyllic drive into the foothills of the Laurentian Mountains to see the towering Montmorency Falls cascading down a 272-foot cliff. Navigate the 1,000 Islands corridor and tour Kingston’s preserved gothic cathedrals, historic monuments and the fascinating Penitentiary Museum. From a thrilling visit to spectacular Niagara Falls to a tour of Detroit’s Henry Ford Museum, each day of this itinerary is filled with magic.
Highlights of this cruise:
Montreal is the cultural capital of Quebec and the main entry point to the province. The second largest city in Canada, it is a city rich in culture and history, is clean and safe. It is close to many major centres in Canada and the United States, and above it offers visitors a taste of Europe without crossing the Atlantic. The city is beautiful and has an undeniable “joie de vivre.”
Montreal boasts fine restaurants, elegant boutiques, department stores and shopping complexes, historical buildings, museums, impressive concert halls, and many theatres and stadiums that are home to professional sports teams.
Montreal’s underground city is a vast network of pedestrian passageways that link residential buildings, skyscrapers, hotels, restaurants, cinemas, banks, nearly 1,000 boutiques and major downtown department stores.
Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. Located at a commanding position on cliffs overlooking the St. Lawrence Seaway, Quebec City’s Old Town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only city in North America outside Mexico with its original city walls. In both parts of the Old City – Haute and Basse – the winding cobbled streets are flanked by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century stone houses and churches, graceful parks and squares, and countless monuments.
Many sights of interest are in the Old Town (Vieux-Québec), which constitutes the walled city on top of the hill. Many surrounding neighbourhoods, either in Haute-Ville (“Upper Town”) or in Basse-Ville (“Lower Town”), are of great interest. The city spreads westward from the St. Lawrence River, for the most part extending from the original old city. The true downtown core of Quebec City is located just west of the old city. Across the river from Quebec City is the town of Lévis. Frequent ferry service connects the two sides of the river.
Toronto is the Canada’s largest metropolis, lying on the shore of Lake Ontario, the easternmost of the Great Lakes. Toronto is considered the cultural, entertainment, and financial capital of the nation. The city is also the seat of the Ontario government.
Toronto is a sprawling multicultural city, with some sixty significant minorities. There is a wide diversity of restaurants and you’ll see highrise buildings side by side with neo-Gothic and Art Deco architecture and exciting performing-arts and nightlife scenes.
Downtown and midtown boast most of the city’s best attractions, the most celebrated of them all is the CN Tower, the world’s tallest free-standing structure. Next door lies the modern hump of the SkyDome sports stadium. The city’s other attractions include the Art Gallery of Ontario, which possesses a first-rate selection of Canadian painting, and the Royal Ontario Museum, where pride of place goes to the Chinese collection.
The Thomson Gallery and Bata Shoe Museum are also worth a visit. The Toronto Gallery of Inuit Art, the Victorian gentility of Spadina House and the replica of Fort York, the colonial settlement where Toronto began, are also worth a look.
Detroit is the largest city in the U.S. state of Michigan and a major port city on the Detroit River. It is a large city made up of a number of distinct districts. Downtown is on the riverfront, so the rest of the city expands north, east, and west from downtown. The Cultural Center, home to most of the city’s museums, is just north of downtown, in Midtown.
Downtown Detroit is unique – an International Riverfront, ornate buildings, sculptures, fountains, the nation’s second largest theater district, and one of the nation’s largest collection of pre-depression era skyscrapers.
The Midtown-New Center is the city’s cultural center, home to several world class museums and galleries. The area is also home to some great 1920s architecture. It is probably the most unique destination in Detroit.
