Day Seven: Tuesday, June 16 - Sydney: Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic ...
Breakfast: Breakfast on board, open seating.

Morning: Embark on a guided visit of the Fortress of Louisbourg. The French came to Louisbourg in 1713 after ceding Acadia and Newfoundland to the British as per the terms of the Treaty of Utrecht. They built the fortress to protect France's interest in the New World and to serve as the center of France's lucrative cod fishing industry off the Grand Banks. The location of the fortress on the eastern tip of Cape Breton Island enabled it to act both as the capital of the new colony at Isle Royale and as the first line of defense in France's struggle against Britain for colonial supremacy in North America.



Entering the Fortress of Louisbourg you leave the modern world behind and step back to 1744. The fortress is alive with animators in full costume and character. Visit the lively town tavern, see Chapelle St. Louis, the garrison chapel, or explore the King's Bastion Barracks, the largest building on site and one of the largest buildings in North America in its day. Stroll through the fortress streets amongst the impressive walls, majestic gates, quaint homes and formal gardens.

Lunch: Enjoy a meal as the inhabitants would in 1744 with a lunch at Fortress Louisbourg, featuring 18th century cuisine.

Afternoon: Explore Sydney with a local expert - from the mining and steel town of yesterday to the vibrant tourist area of today.

Dinner: Dinner is onboard ship in the Rotterdam Dining Room

Cruising the Gulf of St. Lawrence: The Fur Trade and the French-Indian Alliance/Gulf of St. Lawrence

Breakfast: Breakfast on board, open seating.

Morning: As we make our way through the Gulf of St. Lawrence, learn about the history of the fur trade industry in Quebec and the alliance created between the French settlers and the native population of the region. Historically important to the area’s First Nations people for both transportation and as a fishery, the gulf was also the site of the first known exchange between the native population of the Quebec region and Europeans.


The first documented voyage through the gulf’s waters by Europeans was in 1534 with the arrival of Jacques Cartier. In 1603, Samuel de Champlain negotiated the first economic and military alliance between North American Indians and Europeans at Tadoussac. Under the terms of the agreement, the First Nations would transport and deliver beaver pelts to the French in exchange for European goods and a pledge to aid the Huron and Algonquin in their longstanding war with the Iroquois of New York.

Lunch: Lunch on board the ship. You may decide to eat in the dining room, at the Lido buffet, the poolside grill or other locations the ship offer. Open seating is available at all locations.

Afternoon: Relax on deck as the ship glides through the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The world’s largest estuary, the gulf is the outlet of North America’s Great Lakes via the St. Lawrence River. Known as the “great highway into the continent” this inland waterway of the northeast lead to the bounty of forests, furs and raw materials. Carved between the Laurentians to the north and the Appalachians to the south, it forms a natural pathway to the lakes of Ontario, Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior.
