Fall foliage season in Canada and New England is in full swing, and right now ms Maasdam, ms Eurodam and ms Veendam are there exploring the region. What better way to see the emerald, golden and ruby hues of the foliage than from the deck of a cruise ship. Reaching from New York to Gaspe, Quebec, it’s one of the most popular sailing itineraries Holland America Line offers. If you’re not snapping photos from the ship, why not go ashore and see this beautiful area up close? The best way to see all that the region has to offer is on a shore excursion, and there are plenty to choose from. From active and adventurous to relaxed and refined, there’s something for everyone.
Guest Kathy Lovin took a Canada & New England cruise this summer and sent these fabulous shots from two of her favorite shore excursions.
Here’s a shot of a great memory on our shore excursion “Ultimate Anne of Green Gables Experience” to the Anne of Green Gables home on Prince Edward Island. It’s a photo of a tree in Lover’s Lane on the property, where folks have scratched their initials over the years.
