Cruises operate from between Boston and Montréal or Québec City, or round-trip Boston in a season that stretches from spring through autumn.
From April through October, Volendam and Zuiderdam offer seven-day 'Canada & New England Discovery' trips. Ten- and 11-day cruises on Volendam add Newfoundland, while a 24-day expedition adds Greenland and circumnavigates Iceland.
Added perks for booking early
For a limited time, when travelers book 2024 Canada/New England cruises with the 'Have It All' premium package, the line is including gratuities and free upgrades to the Elite Beverage Package and Premium Wi-Fi. (Standard inclusions are shore excursions, specialty dining, a Signature Beverage Package and Surf Wi-Fi.)
Volendam's 24-day cruise round-trip Boston circles Iceland, making six calls, with 10 additional visits in Greenland, Maine and Canada's Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Volendam will sail between Boston and Montréal in both the summer and fall on seven-day itineraries. Ports include Bar Harbor, Maine; Québec City; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and Sydney and Halifax, Nova Scotia. (The Sept. 28 departure subsitutes Rockland, Maine, for Bar Harbor.)
Zuiderdam's seven-day itineraries between Boston and Québec City (overnight) include Bar Harbor, Charlottetown, Sydney and Halifax. (The Sept. 21 cruise calls Rockland instead of Bar Harbor and doesn't overnight at Québec.)
One seven-day 'Historic Coasts' cruise round-trip from Boston aboard Volendam departs July 20 and calls at Portland and Bar Harbor, Maine; Saint John, New Brunswick; Halifax and Sydney.
