Sky Princess and Caribbean Princess are set for a second consecutive seasonal pairing in Canada/New England in 2021, again with one sailing that visits Greenland.

Both ships offer the Princess MedallionClass experience.

The 2021 Canada/New England program goes on sale Sept. 18, and features 16 departures, visiting 18 destinations on six itineraries ranging from seven to 16 days.

New York round-trip

Weeklong cruises on Sky Princess round-trip New York visit Newport (Rhode Island), Boston, Bar Harbor, Saint John (New Brunswick) and Halifax. Departures are Sept. 18 and 25, and Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30.

Ten-day cruises on Caribbean Princess will sail from New York to Québec City, calling at Newport, Boston, Bar Harbor, Saint John, Halifax, Sydney (Cape Breton) and Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island). Departures are Sept 1 and 21, and Oct. 11. And 10-day Québec to New York cruises, stopping at Saguenay, Charlottetown, Sydney, Halifax, Bar Harbor and Boston depart Aug. 6, Sept. 11 and Oct. 1.

Repositioning sailings and Greenland

To start the season, Caribbean Princess will reposition from Florida on a 13-day ‘Canada & Colonial America’ voyage July 24 from Fort Lauderdale to Québec. Ports include Charleston, New York, Newport, Boston, Portland, Saint John and Halifax.

And Caribbean Princess returns to Florida after the season on a 14-day ‘Canada & Colonial America’ voyage from Québec to Fort Lauderdale stopping at Saguenay, Sept Îles, Sydney, Halifax, Saint John, Bar Harbor, Boston, Newport, New York and Charleston. The cruise embarks Oct 21.

The opportunity to visit Greenland, which Princess will be offering for a third season in connection with Canada/New England, is on a 16-day sailing round-trip New York. Caribbean Princess departs Aug. 16 and calls at Halifax, Sydney, Nuuk, Qaqortoq, Nanortalik and St. John.

Late-night stays and cruise-tours

The line’s ‘More Ashore’ late night port calls (departing at 9 p.m. or later) give more time to explore Boston and Charleston, and overnight stays in Québec City are offered on select sailings.

Two land programs are available to combine with cruises. The ‘Historic America Cruise-tour’ includes places like Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate, Colonial Williamsburg, Independence Hall in Philadelphia and the Gettysburg Battlefield.

The ‘Maple Explorer Cruise-tour’ features Niagara Falls, Canada’s capital of Ottawa and French-flavored Montréal, with guided tours of the Canadian Museum of Civilization, cathedrals and the historic 19th century Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
