Highlights

 

A trip that covers some of North America’s oldest cities and settlements, as well as incredible cuisine and gorgeous landscapes, awaits with this 18 day Boston and Eastern Canada cruise.

Arrive in Boston, the capital city of Massachusetts. Those with an interest in history have a seemingly endless list of things to do and see in Boston, from following the Freedom Walk past some of the city’s most historically important landmarks, to visiting the Paul Revere House, Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, and the Bunker Hill Monument. Sports fans can be taken out to the ball game at Fenway Park, or theatre connoisseurs can attend a performance at Symphony Hall. The time spent in Boston before the cruise departure is entirely at your leisure, and there is no set itinerary for you to follow. See and do as much around the city as you like ahead of making your way to the cruise port to board the inimitable Celebrity Summit.
The Celebrity Summit is extraordinary in every sense of the word. It is recently emerged from an industry-leading redesign and now flaunts cutting-edge spaces, staterooms and style. Drop your bags off in your stateroom and waste no time exploring the facilities that span the Celebrity Summit’s impressive 12 decks. Take note of the Main Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy your meals while aboard, and make plans to work through the culinary offerings at the ship’s multiple other restaurants and eateries. The cruising itinerary includes three days spent at sea, so you have ample time to take advantage of all of the ship’s facilities, from being pampered with a treatment at the day spa, to sipping sundowners in one of the bars and lounges..

The cruise makes its first port in the pretty town of Portland in Maine. Feel yourself surrounded by its history and folklore as you stroll past heritage buildings and turn-of-the-century warehouses, or discover a newer side to Portland by hopping between some of its craft breweries and cool cafes. The next destination visited is Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island. This isle has been called home by some of North America’s wealthiest citizens – Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and Carnegie – and is also popular as a gateway to Acadia National Park. Cross into Canadian waters and brush up on your French for two days spent in Quebec City. Check off the city’s best-known landmarks, such as Chateau Frontenac and Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec, as you meander through the Old Town and surrounding districts. Savour the taste of traditional Quebec cuisine with plates of poutine and lashings of maple syrup, and perhaps explore the wider region with excursions to Montmorency Falls and Ile d’Orleans. Move to Prince Edward Island to experience the Victorian-era style of Charlottetown, and have a day in Sydney on Cape Breton Island to soak up the isle’s coastal walking trails, quaint townships and fascinating museums. The final port of call on the cruise is Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia. Gaze over the city from a vantage point at the hilltop Citadel, or get a fix of greenery with a walk through the public gardens..

 
 

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Boston

Make your way to the airport and check in for your USA-bound flight! You touch down in Boston, the capital of Massachusetts, and find your own way to the hotel for check in.

You are then at your leisure to discover this historic city at your own pace for the next three days. History buffs will want to dive straight into Boston’s long-stretching legacy. The city is, after all, one of the oldest in the United States. Head out onto the Freedom Trail to wander this route that winds past some of Boston’s most important historic sites, including some that played pivotal roles in the American Revolution. See the world’s oldest-commissioned floating warship on a visit to the docked USS Constitution at the Charlestown Navy Yard, or explore the heritage of the city’s African American community at the Museum of African American History. Other museums and galleries of note around Boston include John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Isabelle Stewart Gardner Museum, and MIT Museum.

Take a stroll around the green spaces of Boston Common and Public Garden, or don your baseball cap and pick up a hot dog to watch a game at Fenway Park. Bibliophiles will want to marvel at the stacks inside Boston Public Library and its almost 19 million volumes, and foodies can make a beeline for Haymarket to check out the Public Market. Peruse the delicious and artisan offerings from the 40 vendor stalls, or time your visit to line up with one of the market’s cooking classes or tasting sessions. Other excellent markets in Boston include Copley Square Farmers Market, Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, and the Time Out Market. Use these market meanders and aimless street wanderings to track down some of Boston’s most renowned eats – slices of Boston cream pie, lobster rolls slathered in butter, bowls of steaming hot clam chowder, and briny ocean-fresh oysters.

Day 2: Boston

Your first full day in Boston! There is no set sightseeing schedule for while you’re in the city, so how the day pans out is totally in your hands. You might opt to have a lazy morning in your hotel room and head out into the city to find a local café for breakfast. Fuel up with classic diner fare – scrambled eggs, black coffee, maple-topped pancakes – or seek out one of the city’s trendier haunts for small batch-roasted brews, housemade pastries and gourmet sandwiches. Continue your discovery of Boston’s food and drink scene with visits to local breweries, famed ice cream parlours, donut shops, and view-blessed rooftop bars.

Day 3: Boston

Today is your final full day in Boston. This is your time to squeeze in any visits or sightseeing not yet checked off your wish-list. Admire the blooms at Arnold Arboretum on a free guided tour, stroll the mile-long path of the Greenway, and explore the waterfront precincts around Boston Harbor. For some ideas on unique things to do in Boston, look into a trip to the Mapparium inside The Mary Baker Eddy Library; play tricks on your mind at the Scarlett O’Hara House; or sate a sweet-tooth with by tasting chocolate made using an 18th-century recipe at Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop. Toast to your last night in Boston by heading out for a dinner of sensational Bostonian seafood – whole grilled fish, fresh crudo, fried crab, lobster bisque and more.

Day 4: Boston – Cruise (D) cruise-icon

You have the morning as leisure time until you make you way to the cruise port to board the Celebrity Summit. Be sure to arrive at the port with plenty of time to spare. Step foot aboard the Celebrity Summit and immediately feel your jaw drop. This incredible vessel has been completely revolutionised and now boasts cutting-edge new design, facilities and style. Across its 12 decks, the Celebrity Summit counts nine restaurants and eateries, five bars and lounges, a swimming pool and basketball court, jogging track, day spa, wellness centre and more. Settle into your plush stateroom and then spend the rest of the day familiarising yourself with the wealth of to-dos and activities that are now at your fingertips. Head to the Main Restaurant for dinner to get a taste of what gourmet cuisine you can expect over the next 12 nights (all meals and drinks are included while on-board).

Day 5: Portland, Maine (B, L, D) cruise-icon

The Celebrity Summit makes its first port of the cruise in Portland. This coastal city in the state of Maine was established as a fishing and trading settlement by the British in 1632, and still holds onto much of this colonial charm. Your time ashore has no set itinerary and you are free to wander and explore however you like. Take a walk along the waterfront to see the historic fishing wharves and converted warehouses, learn about the city’s heritage at the Maine Historical Society or Victoria Mansion, or browse specialty shops covering everything from quirky socks to handcrafted gifts. Some of the top sights to see include the Portland Head Lighthouse, Peaks Island and Fort Williams Park. The city also has a stellar food and drinks offering, and boasts a great line-up of farm-to-table restaurants, spectacular seafood diners, bustling farmers’ markets and trendy craft breweries. Return to the ship in time for dinner and departure.

Day 6: Bar Harbor, Maine (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Arrive in Bar Harbor. This small yet swanky town has been called home by some of America’s richest citizens – Rockefeller, Carnegie and Vanderbilt all included. Today, the town is commonly used as a launching pad for visiting Acacia National Park. Other landmarks to see from Bar Harbor include Cadillac Mountain, the Cranberry Islands and the Porcupine Islands. Closer to town, things to do in Bar Harbor include whale-watching excursions, seaside walks and dining at restaurants that specialise in lobster.

Day 7: At Sea (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Use today’s sailing itinerary to take advantage of the Celebrity Summit’s on-board facilities and opportunities. You might stake out a prime position on the sundeck and unwind with a book; mingle with other passengers in one of the bars or lounges; sign up for a treatment in the divine spa; or roll the dice at one of the tables in the gaming rooms.

Day 8: At Sea (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Another day at sea and another world of possibilities thanks to the Celebrity Summit’s plethora of activities, shared spaces and programs.

Day 9: Quebec City, Quebec (B, L, D) cruise-icon

The cruise has crossed into Canadian waters and makes its first port in the Great White North in Quebec City, the capital of the French-speaking province. The city was first settled by the French in 1535 and lays claim to being one of the oldest cities in all of North America. Much of this European influence continues to be felt throughout the city, from the French-inspired cuisine to the architecture throughout the many historic neighbourhoods. Perhaps begin your time in Quebec City in the Old Town (or Vieux-Quebec). This area was one of the first to be established and is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander around its narrow streets and pass by landmarks including Chateau Frontenac and Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec. Some of the city’s other districts to have on your sightseeing radar include Petit-Champlain and Place Royale, Vieux-Port and Saint-Jean Baptiste.

Day 10: Quebec City, Quebec (B, L, D) cruise-icon

You have a second day to continue uncovering the delights of Quebec City. Gourmands may want to dedicate today to indulging in classic Quebec fare; a cuisine that is as rich as it is delicious. Seek out servings of tourtiere (meat pie), poutine (French fries topped with gravy and cheese curds), creton (a salted pork spread similar to pate), and sides of hearty baked beans. For sweet tooths, look to slices of sugar pie and lashings of maple syrup. Those wanting to see more of Quebec beyond the city limits can take a day trip out to Montmorency Falls, Ile d’Orleans, Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier, or even Montreal.

Day 11: At Sea (B, L, D) cruise-icon

The Celebrity Summit sets out on the voyage to its next destination and the whole day is spent at sea. Relax in your stylish stateroom, sit down to meals or snacks at any of the ship’s eateries, or spend time out on deck soaking in the scenery as you sail.

Day 12: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Arrive to Charlottetown, the capital of Prince Edward Island. This provincial capital was named after the wife of King George III and, in 1864, was the location of the famous conference that eventually led to the unification of Canada. Although Charlottetown is relatively compact, it offers its visitors much to do. Take in some of the city’s historical sights, or take a stroll through the downtown area to see the Victorian-era architecture and streets lined with redbrick facades. There are also plenty of stately heritage homes and even a mock Gothic cathedral to see. When your feet need respite from hitting the pavement, make for a table at one of the craft breweries, casual cafes or local farmers’ markets.

Day 13: Sydney, Nova Scotia (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Explore Sydney on Cape Breton Island today. Established in 1785, this small port city was one of the first touchpoints immigrants arriving from Europe used to have with Canada. Make a point of seeing Sydney’s best-known oversized landmark, the Big Fiddle – the largest of its kind in the world! Head to one of Sydney’s historic homes or museums to learn more about the city’s past. Some of the most popular include Cossit House, the Cape Breton Centre for Heritage & Science, and St. Patrick’s Church Museum. Keen walkers can head out of the city towards a section of the Cabot Trail, and this might even tie in with a quick pitstop to the town of Baddeck and the shores of Bras d’Or Lakes.

Day 14: Halifax, Nova Scotia (B, L, D) cruise-icon

As well as being the provincial capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax is known for its rich maritime history and the Citadel site that dominates its skyline. Guided tours take visitors through the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site and offer valuable insight into just how important this fortress was in the city’s defence. Dive into Halifax’s relationship with the sea at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, or green thumbs can take a walk through the Victorian-era Halifax Public Gardens. Point Pleasant Park is another beautiful spot for leisurely strolls. Another path to follow is the four-kilometre Harbourwalk, a route that passes the Halifax waterfront as well as some of the city’s oldest buildings and a number of excellent dining spots.

Day 15: At Sea (B, L, D) cruise-icon

This is your final full-day spent aboard the Celebrity Summit as the ship sets out on its return voyage to Boston. Make the most of today to revisit any favourite meals from the ship’s restaurants, organise another treatment in the spa, or sip lip-smacking cocktails in the Rendezvous Lounge or Sunset Bar.

Day 16: Boston – airplane-takeoff – Australia (B)

Disembark the Celebrity Summit after breakfast. You are then at your leisure until the necessary time when you must make your own way to the airport to catch your homeward flights.

Day 17: In-flight

Day 18: Australia

Arrive back in Australia today.
