The largest city on Prince Edward Island as well as its capital, Charlottetown's Victorian architecture, abundance of parks and its harbourside location make it an idyllic stop for visitors.

Sydney is the gateway to Highland village, the scenic Cabot Trail, golden inland seas, and the Fortress of Louisbourg- where every barn, barrack and pipe, drum corps appears just as it did when King Louis' troops occupied the site in 1744.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Cruise to Bar Harbor, Maine
For much of the year, sunlight touches the United States first at Cadillac Mountain on the Maine Coast. From the granite-slabbed summit, light tiptoes down across the rest of Mount Desert Isle, Acadia National Park, the town of Bar Harbor and before illuminating the rest of the country. Raw coastal scenery attracted The Hudson River School painters in the 1840s, and their art lured countless visitors to the area. Bar Harbour quickly became a haven for the East Coast affluent and was bejeweled with grand mansions and immaculate gardens. Stroll down the streets of town, relax on the Village Green with the famous Lobster flavoured ice-cream, or hike up Cadillac Mountain.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
