St. Lawrence River Passage
"What river is this?" asked Jacques Cartier of his Indian guide as he looked on the St. Lawrence.
"A river without end," the Indian replied.
And so it seems, as this cruise explores the staggering variety of one of the world's great rivers.
Along its course you'll experience the numerous attractions and extraordinary scenery of the Upper St. Lawrence.
Quebec City, Canada's showpiece, provides the venue for the beginning or end of your cruise.
Here you can experience the world charm and grace of "Old" Europe.
You will encounter Quebec City's unparalleled joie de vivre (love of life) found nowhere else in North America.
Enjoy Old Quebec (the only walled city in North America) with its massive ramparts still bolstering the Plains of Abraham; and behold the imperial green-roofed towers of the legendary Chateau Frontenac.
En route you will discover the magic of the Thousand Islands, the deep historical roots of "Loyalist Brockville" and the unique living community of Upper Canada Village.
Between Montreal and Quebec City there are the "grassy Battures", rich mudflat home to myriad species of birds.
You will pass the "Segnieury" areas, the prominent village cathedrals of Quebec, and witness the awesome cliffs stretching up to the historic Plains of Abraham.
"This has been the most wonderful vacation I have ever taken - thanks to the exemplary service you have provided. The first night, you promised you would spoil us, and you did! You said we would have a fantastic time, and we did! What you didn't mention was how much we would regret having the cruise end, and we do regret that. And that's why you'll be seeing us again! Everyone I spoke with echoed those same sentiments."
