Your journey begins in Halifax, where you can enjoy red-brick heritage buildings, lovely parks, the landmark Citadel Hill National Historic Site, top-quality museums, Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery, and a 2-mile-long seafront boardwalk. We definitely recommend spending an extra day or two here on a Pre-program before embarking on MS Roald Amundsen.
Day 2 Yarmouth, Nova Scotia - French, Fishing, and Forchu
Welcome to this historic town at the intersection of traditional Anglo-Scottish and Acadian French cultures.

Day 3 Eastport, Maine - Easternmost City in the USA
Stroll the downtown Historic District here and take in its shops, restaurants, and cafés. The native Passamaquoddy people have called nearby Moose Island home for at least 10,000 years, in an area which attracts seals, eagles, and whales. We may see Old Sow in nearby Passamaquoddy Bay, believed to be the biggest whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere.
Day 4 Bar Harbor, Maine - Quintessentially Maine
Surrounded by stunning Acadia National Park and perched by the sea on Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor has a classic Maine ambience. You’ll find some of the region’s best seafood restaurants here, and whales, seals, and puffins can be spotted along the coast.
Day 5 Rockland, Maine - Small-Town Charm, World-Class Art
Like many communities in Maine, this small coastal town on Penobscot Bay grew out of the lobster-fishing industry, but is now known for its boutiques, fine dining, and galleries. Art lovers can spend time at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and the world-famous Farnsworth Art Museum, enjoying works by Andrew Wyeth and other fine painters.

Day 8-9 Boston, Massachusetts - The Cradle of Liberty
From its history as the oldest city in America to its fanatical sports fans, the city of Boston is a true treasure trove for visitors.

Walk the Freedom Trail for a sense of the city's revolutionary roots, taste famous Boston clam chowder, or enjoy the dynamic contemporary art, music, and theater scenes.
