Montreal to New York this ‘fall’
Autumn is a very special season to be in south east Canada and New England. This is a region of beautiful forests and striking scenery and come October the lush green of summer takes on a new identity. Crunchier, rosier, more romantic...

Awash with ochre, rust and bronze, everywhere you look is an idyllic picture. A warm glow of nostalgia, with much to embrace and explore in the here-and-now too.

And on Seven Seas Mariner, you’ll have a full 11-nights to experience the magic of a New England ‘fall’.

Departing Montreal on October 20, 2023, you’ll take the short trip along the St Lawrence River overnight to arrive in Quebec the following morning.

Crowned with the imposing facade of the Chateau Frontenac, Quebec’s walled old city is arranged on two levels, built into the cliff face. Enter the fairy-tale in the lower old city and take the funicular railway to the upper part of town to explore the citadel, cathedral and a whole range of shops and cafes.

And then enjoy a totally different pace in Saguenay – the only fjord in Canada accessible to cruise ships. If you’re looking for an active excursion, out on the water or hiking the leafy waterside trails, today is your heaven on earth.

The journey continues with stops in Corner Brook (Newfoundland) and Sydney (Nova Scotia) before spending a wonderful day in Halifax (Nova Scotia) – the largest city on Canada’s Atlantic coast.

Explore the Bay of Fundy during your afternoon and evening stay in Saint John (New Brunswick) before crossing the border into the USA to visit four States in as many days.

Bar Harbor (Maine) is one of the region’s lobster capitals and an immaculate playground of the well-to-do, at the foot of Acadia National Park. From there, you’ll head to Boston (Massachusetts), home of the famous tea party, and Newport (Rhode Island), before disembarking in New York City – a place that needs no introduction.

Rome to Barcelona this November
If Europe is your dream continent, then why not spoil yourself with a seven-night last minute escape from Rome to Barcelona on Seven Seas Splendor?

Incorporating up to 60 complimentary excursions and visiting a new port every single day of the journey, this last-minute cruise deal is for those who love connecting with the destinations and then returning to the ship for a blissful evening of restful relaxation and divine food.

The cruise starts in Civitavecchia, the port gateway to Rome, and follows the Mediterranean coastline north towards Livorno, which is ideally situated for easy access to Florence - the Tuscan capital – or Pisa, with its famous leaning tower.

La Spezia presents another opportunity to take a tour or train to Pisa, or alternatively soak up authentic local Italian vibes in the legendary Cinque Terre – five villages nestled in the cliff faces leading to the Mediterranean Sea.

Your journey continues into France, with a day in Villefranche (neighbouring Nice) and Toulon.

And as the journey enters its final couple of days you’ll explore the western reaches of the sheltered Mediterranean Sea, with charming Spanish ports: Palamos – much-loved by the surrealist sensation, Salvador Dali – and Palma de Mallorca for the classic Spanish island scene.

Head home from Barcelona with the magic of Las Ramblas to entertain you en route to the airport.
