Available with Crystal Serenity’s September-October voyages, the two- and three-night, pre- and post-cruise programs feature Toronto and Niagara Falls or Montréal and Québec City, or provide a free transfer between Québec and Montréal for cruisers who plan their own adventures.
The two-night 'Toronto & Niagara Falls' combines the famous falls with a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, home to 28 wineries and a Heritage District of specialty shops and eateries, plus a winemaker’s lunch. In Toronto are a dinner 1,100 feet above the city at the CN Tower’s rotating 360 restaurant and exploration of the PATH, a 16-mile underground network of shops, museums, theaters and dining.
'Québec City and Montréal by Train,' three nights, includes accommodations at the chic Auberge Saint-Antoine hotel in the heart of Québec City and the Ritz-Carlton Montréal, in walking distance of many attractions. Participants travel by business class train between Montréal and Québec City. The program includes exploration of Québec City’s museés, shops and historical districts, plus Montréal’s Notre Dame Basilica, Latin Quarter and Mount Royal.
