Global Cruises expands with immersive tours across Canada/New England

Miami-based Global Cruises launched its new Canada & New England Portfolio of immersive shore excursions.

These are designed to showcase the rich cultural, historical and culinary heritage of destinations in Canada including Charlottetown, Halifax, Saint John and Sydney, and in New England including Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor and Newport.

'Our Canada & New England Portfolio reflects our commitment to offering diverse, high-quality travel experiences,' said Leyla Osorio, CEO of Global Cruises. 'Guests will enjoy an innovative journey filled with stories, flavors and sights that epitomize the essence of these regions. With our experiences, we seek to reintroduce these destinations in a completely new, immersive way.'

Bar Harbor's tours extend an intimate glimpse into America's Gilded Age elegance, captivating natural landscapes of Acadia National Park and the heritage of the Wabanaki Nations. Boston's excursions dive into Revolutionary War history with interactive, character-led tours down cobblestone streets. Charlottetown's tours offer a deep dive into the city's architectural and spiritual past for an enriching exploration of Prince Edward Island's capital.

Global Cruises presents Halifax as a treasure trove for seafood tastings, known for its fresh lobster and crab, while Portland blends its seafaring legacy with a vibrant arts scene and Beer Mastery Tour. Newport provides a gateway to the Gilded Age, cultural richness and scenic vineyards.

In Sydney, visitors are immersed in Gaelic culture through a curated experience that blends culture and scenery on Cape Breton Island. Saint John mixes its nautical roots with scenic wonders like the Reversing Falls with the highest tidal change in the world.

Across the portfolio are distinctive Global Cruises experiences including selfie adventures, behind-the-scenes tours and 'How were they built?' elements.

Founded in 2008, Global Cruises operates more than 8,000 shore operations annually across 108 ports around the world. It is Travelife certified for sustainability, working with Conservation International.
