Autumn is the ideal time to explore the beautiful vistas of east coast America and Canada. Witness the lush forests transforming into a breathtaking palette of reds, yellows and oranges as you travel from New York to Montreal with Oceania Cruises.

Starting amongst the bright lights of the Big Apple, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the 'City That Never Sleeps' during a three-night pre-cruise stay. Leaving New York, you'll traverse the coast along Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, taking in soaring cliffs and docking in enchanting ports that reveal a fascinating history of colonial settlements, the American Revolution and the Civil War. You'll then cross the border into Canada and cruise its majestic coastline, discovering UNESCO World Heritage Sites, stunning nature and unique history in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec.

Travelling aboard Oceania Vista, you'll find a luxurious environment designed in perfect synchronicity with the stunning coastal views that populate the journey. With sophisticated signatures and chic design combining with The Finest Cuisine at Sea® and dedicated personalised service, Oceania Vista is the definition of luxury at sea.

Itinerary

Fly from London to New York and take a private transfer to your hotel for a relaxing three-night pre-cruise stay in the Big Apple. New York is one of the world's most exciting cities and there's more than enough to fill your time. But where to begin? Perhaps toast your first night with some incredible dining.
Spend your first full day in New York enjoying whatever it is that interests you - there's quite literally something for everyone. So whether it’s the sacred soil of Ground Zero, a stroll through Central Park or a trip to the American Museum of Natural History, you're guaranteed an unforgettable day.
With one final day to explore New York, you might be spoiled for choice when it comes to filling your time. Should you take in a Broadway show or simply enjoy the non-stop show of people that parade through the streets? The possibilities are endless in the five boroughs of New York City, so get out and enjoy.
Today you'll say goodbye to the excitement of New York and take a private transfer to the port to board the magnificent Oceania Vista, your home on the waters for the next few days. You'll be immediately struck by the level of service and luxury. Settle in and get ready for your voyage.
Newport is an enchanting up-market resort city that sits amongst a rocky shoreline populated by lighthouses and Gilded Age mansions. You can tour many of the properties, including the Vanderbilt's opulent Marble House. Other experiences that you might enjoy in Newport include the granite Castle Hill Culinary discovery tour.
Boston is a city that effortlessly combines history and modernity, offering you an interesting look into the American Revolution as well as a host of fantastic contemporary amenities. For a 360-degree view of the city, head for the Skywalk Observatory on the 50th floor of the Prudential Tower. For art, browse the Museum of Fine Arts, which includes works ranging from Van Gogh to Egyptian sculpture.
When Bar Harbor was established in the 19th century it was originally called Eden. You'll understand exactly why from the moment you lay eyes on this seaside paradise. Perfect for lovers of the outdoors, you might enjoy a hike through Acadia National Park for breathtaking views of Cadillac Mountain or tour the Abbe Museum and discover the fascinating history of the Wabanaki Indians.
Located in the beautiful Bay of Fundy, Saint John is home to a variety of breathtaking natural experiences. Discover the bizarre Reversing Falls, a daily tidal phenomenon so severe it reverses the flow of the Saint John River, or visit Canada's oldest continuing museum, the New Brunswick, where displays include the skeletal remains of a rare North Atlantic right whale.
Shelburne is home to a magnificent waterfront lined with perfectly preserved 18th century buildings. For a fascinating day trip, travel to the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Town Lunenburg, the best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America, or explore Kejimkujik National Park, part of the Southwest Nova UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Sydney is a city that's steeped in history and is home to a host of landmarks from the late 1700s, such as the colonial Cossit House and the Jost House, which features a one-of-a-kind beehive bake-oven. For a further exploration of the history of Nova Scotia the city's oldest Catholic church, St. Patricks doubles as a fascinating museum.
A day spent aboard Oceania Vista is one of luxury and indulgence. You'll have a range of activities to choose from alongside some truly incredible dining experiences. Vista delivers on its promise of The Finest Cuisine at Sea® with four brand new restaurants that perfectly compliment their already fantastic culinary offering.
Saguenay is the gateway to Quebec and offers some of the most breathtaking nature experiences in all of Canada. Be sure not to miss out on a hike through Saguenay National Park. The park cradles the dramatic Musée du Fjord that has enchanted travellers for centuries. Then head to La Baie for a tour of painter Arthur Villeneuve’s home and view the impressive frescoes.
Truly one of the most enchanting cities on your journey, Quebec has a distinctively French atmosphere that has bled into the cuisine and architecture, particularly in the fabulous Old Town. Surrounded by several miles of granite walls dating back hundreds of years, the Old Town is home to the Musée de la Civilisation, a treasure trove of items recreating the city’s early days.
French-speaking and thoroughly romantic, Montreal is the perfect place to end your cruise. The Old Port is a hub of entertainment, while the Museum of Fine Arts is revered for its collection of more than 30,000 beautiful objects. For a breath of fresh air away from the excitement of the city, the Montreal Botanical Garden has been a draw since 1931 and is well worth a leisurely stroll.
Bid a fond farewell to the ship and crew as you disembark in Montreal for your overnight return flight back to the UK. If you’re not ready for the journey to end, Montreal is a fantastic destination for a post-cruise stay, so be sure to ask our Travel Specialists about extending your stay here, or even moving on to a new destination.
