There is nothing more majestic than to witness the annual spectacle of the changing of fall colours. When the sugar maples turn flame red and are accompanied by so many other trees turning yellow, orange or crimson, the landscape takes on a glow that is beyond breathtaking. Fall is often a time of year in Eastern Canada and New England when the sky tends to be deep azure, as the sun still shines bright, but its warmth begins to ebb. What better time than to board a cruise ship and sail from one port to the next while viewing this ongoing spectacle. I always recommend the later cruises from mid October until the end of the fall season, which is around the start of November. As the global climate changes, colours now come later, but they will often stay into early November unless a quick gale or snowstorm finishes the season with a sudden bang. The ports of call exude either the New England charm in places like Boston, Portland or Bar Harbor while the Canadian ports offer that gentile flavor that is so characteristic of Canada. Visiting historic Halifax, the Victorian charm of Charlottetown or the Old World French speaking cities of Québec, you will be delighted with Canadian hospitality along with incredibly delicious cuisine. This book provides initially provides you with some geographic and historic background for both Eastern Canada and New England. There are also chapters that illustrate how the lifestyles and governments of the two neighbouring countries differ. And alas there is a chapter on each of the ports that are visited by cruise ships at this time of year. Most cruises last for a period of from ten to 14-days, so no single cruise can visit all the possibilities. There are recommendations as to the major sights in each port along with dining and shopping tips, all based upon my personal experience as one who simply adores this part of both countries, especially in the autumn. Bon Voyage - let's go cruising.
