Overview

Specially planned to take advantage of Balmoral’s smaller size, this very special itinerary offers a rare chance to experience the seasonal scenic splendour of America’s size-restricted rivers and waterways in the fall, along with remarkable cities in the US and Canada, all on one exhilarating North American adventure.

Your unforgettable exploration of North America’s incredible East Coast will be punctuated by many memorable experiences. Heading to New York, you’ll sail the man-made Cape Cod Canal, passing through autumn-coloured woodland and under impressive bridges, before waking to the sight of the iconic Statue of Liberty. Legendary attractions – skyscrapers, world-renowned stores, Broadway, Times Square, Central Park, the 9/11 Memorial and more – are yours to discover during two days in the ‘Big Apple’.

 Balmoral will then take you beyond New York and along the Hudson River – only accessible to smaller ships – for views of tree-laden riverbanks resplendent with brown and red fall foliage. A relaxing journey along the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal will also present you with gorgeous autumnal scenes en route to Baltimore, gateway to Washington DC. Tour from Baltimore to the US capital and you can take your pick of must-visit sites, such as the White House and Lincoln Memorial.

Elsewhere, visits to Portland and Boston will provide rich rewards too. Perhaps discover the quaint cobbled streets, shops and microbreweries of the Old Port in Portland; and admire the appealing fusion of hi-tech towers and classic Georgian architecture in Boston, home of the famous Freedom Trail. North of the US border, your cruise also includes a taste of Canada’s beautiful Eastern Seaboard, which comes to life in the fall. You’ll visit St John’s, surrounded by stunning Newfoundland countryside and home to the historic Signal Hill; Sydney, perfectly placed for explorations of Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Highlands, the Bras d’Or Lakes and Fortress Louisbourg National Park; and the culture-rich cities of Halifax and Saint John. At each Canadian call, you’re sure to find yourself fully immersed in the natural beauty, fresh air and welcoming atmosphere of this remarkable country. Finally, for contrasting experiences to those enjoyed in North America, Balmoral will take you to the sun-splashed Atlantic Ocean islands of Bermuda and São Miguel, for soothing warmth, inviting crystal-clear waters and glorious beaches.
