A new Pearl Seas Cruises voyage combines ports in Maine with destinations in New Brunswick and the Bay of Fundy.

The seven-night cruise operates round-trip Portland and calls at Rockland, Eastport and Bar Harbor in Maine, and Grand Manan Island, St. Andrews and St. John in New Brunswick.

Three departures are offered in 2018: May 12, Oct. 16 and Oct. 23.

Led by Pearl Seas’ expert guides, Pearl Mist passengers can stroll along the charming, turn-of-the-century streets of St. Andrews' National Historic District, and visit Grand Manan Island, renowned for whale-watching and birdwatching. Some 240 species of birds make the island their home.

The cruise also visits St. John on the Bay of Fundy, where the tides force the waters to reverse their flow, creating the famous Reversing Rapids at the mouth of the Saint John River.

Along the way Pearl Mist provides enrichment programs, regionally inspired dining, opportunities to view spectacular coastal scenery and chances to visit art galleries, historic sites, museums and markets.
