Canadian Connections Cruise Itinerary Map showing the St. Lawrence Seaway from Kingston to Quebec City

Cruise the St. Lawrence River in the warm summer months. Enjoy the cool breeze as your ship meanders through the Thousand Islands and the St. Lawrence Seaway Lock System, bound for Quebec. No visit to Canada would be complete without visiting Quebec City – the charming showpiece of old Europe that still remains true to its heritage.

History and heritage plays a big part in this region. In Upper Canada Village – a living museum – visit a shoemaker who makes and repairs leather shoes and boots with hand tools and wooden forms, or follow the smells of fresh bread to the bakety. Explore Old Quebec City, the only walled city on the continent. Tour Fort Wellington, built during the War of 1812 and now a National Historic Site.
