Raw Beauty and Unexpected Landscapes
Canada is an incredibly diverse country, from
historic cities of the east, to the plains and jaw-dropping mountains of the west and the Arctic wilderness of the north.
Atlantic Canada – especially
Newfoundland – is a land apart, with a distinct culture, stunning scenery and invariably plenty roads. An MSC cruise will take you to Halifax, the hip capital of Nova Scotia that offers great museums, hundreds of pubs and the best live music in the east, to the Prince Edward Island, the bucolic country of Anne of Green Gables, and to Newfoundland’s boisterous capital, St John’s, where you can whale-watch or picnic at a lighthouse.
During an MSC cruise you can enjoy the long, jagged coastline punctured by picturesque bays, sandy beaches, towering cliffs of the
Provinces and the natural and historic charms of Newfoundland. The Atlantic Ocean was crucial to the development of this part of Canada, not only in bringing waves of settlers but also accounting for its greatest industries: shipbuilding and fishing. Spread over the promontory Cap Diamant and the banks of the St Lawrence River, Québec City is instead one of Canada’s most beautifully located cities and certainly its most historic one.
