At a Glance

Manhattan’s sophistication and Bar Harbor’s easy manner, the Scottish bagpipes of Halifax and Québec City’s French culture, all on one vibrant journey! Sight the raised torch of Lady Liberty sailing out of New York Harbor on a dramatic voyage showcasing natural wonder and glorious history, from the wild beauty of Maine’s Acadia National Park to a 1774 Nova Scotia fortress teeming with life nearly three centuries later. Onboard experts detail the historic importance of your route and ample free time allows for signature discoveries.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • In New York City, ride a ferry with a Road Scholar expert to Liberty Island, where you view the Statue of Liberty on the ground or brave 354 steps for a spectacular vista of New York Harbor.
  • In Bar Harbor, Maine, begin at the town pier and walk the half-mile shore path, dating to 1880, to view the four Porcupine Islands, rocky granite shores and beautiful mansions.
  • With an expert in Sydney, Nova Scotia, walk the Colonial Town to see 200-year-old buildings, including the Cossit and Jost houses (circa 1787) and the restored stone St. Patrick’s Church.
