2017 Canada and New England with the Queen

A one-time Autumn Holiday to Atlantic Canada & New England aboard the grandest Ocean Liner afloat, Cunard’s QUEEN MARY 2.

Some moments are so perfect, they simply can never be duplicated.  That’s why this special fall foliage adventure including a voyage on Cunard Line’s peerless Queen Mary 2 is offered just once only. Soak in the energy of the Big Apple with an overnight stay in the heart of Times Square, then be whisked through the fall foliage of Vermont on Amtrak’s Adirondack for three glorious nights in Montreal, a city so European that you will feel as if you are on another continent. Via Rail takes you through the autumnal glory of French Canada from Montreal to stunning Quebec City where, beneath the ramparts of the castle-like Chateau Frontenac, the Queen Mary 2 awaits. Embark on a rare 7-night voyage on Cunard’s flagship, fresh from a refurbishment that added new lounges and enhanced dining. Look for whales off the Gaspé Peninsula and discover the art galleries of Saguenay. The Scottish vibe of Halifax is the perfect kilted crescendo before your return to the bright lights of New York.
