Tracking Ritz-Carlton's inaugural season sailing the Canadian and US eastern seaboard, the mid - September 2020 cruise combines stops in Iceland and the beautiful colonial town of Qaqortoq, in Southern Greenland, before heading towards the Canadian province of Newfoundland. With an initial stop at the ancient Viking settlement of L'Anse aux Meadows, the yacht heads southward within the Gulf of St Lawrence, towards the spectacular Gros Morne National Park, a world heritage site and worthy of the overnight stay scheduled on the itinerary.

Continuing southward, a further overnight stay allows ample time to sample the delights of Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, enjoying its Victorian-era houses and buildings.

Then, heading east to Nova Scotia and the port of Louisbourg, the itinerary concludes in Halifax, bringing to an end what has been a rare chance to visit Canada, Iceland and Greenland on just one cruise.


Continuing its deployment in Eastern Canada, the Ritz-Carlton Yacht concludes the month of September with a shorter cruise that still manages to pack a punch. Departing Halifax, the yacht heads for the Canadian Maritime resorts of Lunenberg, Nova Scotia and St.Andrews, New Brunswick.

Lunenburg is a world heritage site whose colourful buildings date from the 18th and 19th centuries whilst St.Andrews is a pretty seaside town with turn of the century charm.

The yacht continues southward to the US port of Bar Harbor in Maine, once a getaway for the upper echelons of society and now gateway to Acadia National Park, which in Autumn offers spectacular foliage.

The final three days of the itinerary feature full days spent in three New England locations: the thriving port of Rockland, the charming port of cobblestone streets, delectable seafood and abundant history that is Portland and finally Salem, the town that in 1692 witnessed the infamous Salem witch trials. Disembarkation is in Boston, with the opportunity to extend your stay at the home of the American Revolution.

Bar Harbor


The third cruise sees the Ritz-Carlton yacht head back up the St. Lawrence River, repeating the stop at fashionable Bar Harbor and the following day, stopping overnight in Halifax.

After a full day enjoying the charming waterfront area, with its boutiques, cafés and restaurants, the yacht commences its journey northward heading for French Canada's centre Quebec and finally Montreal.

Prior to reaching the province of Quebec, the yacht drops anchor again at Charlottetown before sailing further up the St. Lawrence River, finally reaching Quebec province and Percé,

Continuing in its usual unrushed way, two days later and still negotiating the St. Lawrence, the yacht arrives at Tadoussac. Lying at the confluence of the Saguenay and St. Lawrence rivers, this bohemian village is filled with funky eateries and shops as well as historic French-Canadian architecture.

The final couple of days herald a full day in Quebec followed by an overnight and then disembarkation in Montreal.

Quebec City is the very soul of the province - boasting a picturesque Old Town that is a world heritage site, a living museum of narrow cobblestone streets, 17th and 18th century houses, with the splendid Château Frontenac towering above it all.

The second largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris, Montreal is a potent mixture of picturesque squares, grand old-world architecture and vibrant arts scene.

Montreal


The final cruise of the Autumn series is a reversal of the above, visiting the same ports and terminating in Boston.
