Princess Cruises will offer its largest Canada/New England deployment in autumn 2019 and the chance to visit Greenland round-trip from New York aboard Caribbean Princess.

The season includes three ships with 16 departures, visiting 16 destinations on seven itineraries. Three late night calls and two overnights in port are featured, along with access to four UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The new 16-day 'Greenland & Canada' voyage round-trip from New York on Caribbean Princess visits three ports in Greenland and three ports in Canada. Also new is a 24-day 'Canada & New England' voyage round-trip from Southampton (England) on Sapphire Princess, with an overnight stay in New York and a maiden call at Rockland, Maine.

'Canada & New England' voyages depart Saturdays from New York on Regal Princess, and there will be more departures than ever of the line's 10-day 'Classic Canada & New England' voyages, including one in August.

These sail from Québec City and New York on Caribbean Princess, with overnight stays in Québec and scenic cruising on the St. Lawrence River on every cruise. Plus, there will be late-night stays in Boston and Saguenay on every Québec to New York departure.

Thirteen-day 'Canada & Colonial America' voyages sail both in summer and autumn between Québec and Port Everglades on Caribbean Princess, with overnight stays in Québec.

A five-day 'Canadian Atlantic Provinces Getaway' will sail from New York on Regal Princess.

Passengers will have access to UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Historic District of Old Québec, Old Town Lunenburg, Landscape of Grand Pré and the Statue of Liberty.

Two cruise-tour options visit colonial America or Niagara Falls and eastern Canada.

The 'Historic America' program includes such important places as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello estate, Colonial Williamsburg, Independence Hall in Philadelphia and the Gettysburg Battlefield.

The 'Maple Explorer' program features cities like national capital Ottawa and French-flavored Montréal with guided tours of the Canadian Museum of History, dazzling cathedrals and the historic 19th century Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A cruise through the picturesque Thousand Islands is included.

A reduced deposit of 10% is available for Captain's Circle member bookings made by Aug. 31, 2018.
