EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
From New York and New England to eastern Canada, experience the picturesque coastline the very best way — up close. From the deck of a nimble small ship, view lighthouses in Maine and Nova Scotia, sail into unspoiled bays and inlets, learn about island life, explore lovely villages, dock beneath steeples and battlements, and perhaps spot a whale breaching an inland waterway. Cap your voyage amid the French flair of Montreal.


• In quaint Bar Harbor, Maine, learn why this fishing village surrounded by Acadia National Park was a favorite summer home of the Astors and Rockefellers.
• In Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, experience the best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America, founded in 1753.
• On lush Prince Edward Island, explore the Anne of Green Gables House and understand why it inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel.

Activity Notes

Considerable walking and standing on uneven terrain; unavoidable stairs, boarding small boats. There is no elevator on the ship.
