Come and explore the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers for 6 Days and 5 Nights. Board in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and disembark in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Along the shores of the Ottawa River, you’ll come face to face with the capital of Canada where a warm Canadian welcome awaits you. Politics and pageantry abound in this city known for its year-round festive flair. Ottawa is the seat of Canada’s federal government.

It’s the political centre of Canada, home to international dignitaries and site of world-class museums and galleries galore, satisfying every interest.

Cruising along the Ottawa River you’ll find yourself situated directly between predominantly English-speaking Ontario and French-speaking Quebec, basking in a unique blend of Canada’s founding cultures. Cruising in either direction, you will experience the many faces, stages, and attractions of the St. Lawrence River. A dynamic international waterway whose deep-draft navigation route is an essential lifeline between North America and overseas trade centres.
