MIAMI, March 27 /CNW/ - Featuring 10 unforgettable ports and an overnight
stay in Quebec City, Celebrity Cruises' 2009 Canada/New England sailings are a
must for cruise enthusiasts who swoon at the sight of autumn foliage. The
cruises open for booking today.
Although just three sailings comprise Celebrity's 2009 Canada/New England
season, each itinerary offers spectacular views and Celebrity's signature
service with style. The first sailing is a 14-night cruise on September 19,
followed by a 13-night voyage on October 3, and a 14-night cruise on October
16, all on Celebrity Constellation, round-trip out of Cape Liberty (Bayonne),
All three sailings feature an overnight stay in one of Celebrity's past
guests' favorite ports, Quebec City, Quebec. Known for its French heritage,
cobbled alleyways, and the scenic St. Charles and St. Lawrence rivers, Quebec
City offers Celebrity's guests a host of shore excursions that range from a
romantic horse-drawn carriage ride with dinner in the old quarter to a
bicycling tour to the cascading Montmorency Falls. Each sailing also includes
a full-day visit to Sydney, Nova Scotia, where guests can embrace the local
culture through shore excursions such as "The Heart of the Island," which
takes guests to picturesque Cape Breton Island, highly rated by National
Geographic Traveler. The excursion weaves through rugged countryside to the
Nova Scotia Highland Village, a 50-acre historical site overlooking the "Great
Inland Sea," or Bras d'Or Lakes region.
The three voyages also feature calls on Newport, Rhode Island, and
Boston, Massachusetts, which Celebrity Constellation hasn't visited since
2007, as well as Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and Portland, Maine,
where Celebrity offers a shore excursion showcasing the beauty of White
Mountain National Forest and the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway.
Other ports in Celebrity's 2009 Canada/New England season include Bar Harbor,
Maine; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Saint John, New Brunswick.
