Quebec City, Canada
Quebec City, Canada was first settled in 1535 by France and is one of North America’s oldest, and most beautiful cities. A captivating sense of French influence still echoes at every turn–from the language to the cuisine and the architecture. There is so much rich history and culture to explore on Quebec cruises. Walk the quaint streets passed stone houses, churches, cafés, and abandoned military fortifications that at one time helped to hold invading forces at bay.
The fascinating heritage of Quebec City begins in The Old Town (Vieux-Quebec) district. Located on the city harbor on the bank of the St. Lawrence River, this well-preserved neighborhood was first established over 400 years ago as a permanent French settlement and is also an UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the wonderful historic attractions and landmarks as you make your way along the narrow streets, including Le Chateau Frontenac (1893) and Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec (1647). Sample the best of Quebecois cuisine at one of the many fine dining establishments in the neighborhood with menus that reflect truly Canadian, yet very European-inspired gastronomy.
Quebec has many museums, but Musée de la Civilisation is by far the most popular in town and definitely worth a visit. Experience the stimulating interactive, participatory exhibits and one exhibit of note explores the cultures of Quebec’s native populations. Dive into Quebecois history with a state-of-the-art 30-minute sound and light show at Musée du Fort. The whole family will enjoy the riveting story of the six sieges of Quebec City and accompanying history lesson.

On the south shore of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown’s red soil adds to the area’s natural beauty. No visit would be complete without sampling the local mussels, which are some of the best in the world.
