Fall for autumn’s waterways
With Fred. Olsen’s latest adventure in the USA
As summer drifts into autumn the USA’S East Coast comes alive with shimmering hues of crimson, gold, yellow and bronze.
For 2020 Fred. Olsen have one of their most spectacular cruises yet, which combines the breath-taking colours of the fall with some of the most remarkable cities in the USA and Canada.
HEADING TO NEW YORK
You’ll sail the man-made Cape Cod Canal, passing through autumn coloured woodland and under impressive bridges, before waking to the sight of the iconic Statue of Liberty.
New York City will be yours to discover during two days in the ‘Big Apple’.
Saying goodbye to New York as you sail the Hudson River – only accessible to smaller ships such as Balmoral – your views will be that of tree-laden riverbanks resplendent with brown and red fall foliage.
A relaxing journey along the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal will also present you with gorgeous autumnal scenes en route to Baltimore, gateway to Washington DC.
MUST VISIT SITES
Tour from Baltimore to the US capital and you can take your pick of must see sites, such as the White House and Lincoln Memorial.
Elsewhere, visits to Portland and Boston will provide rich rewards too. Perhaps discover the quaint cobbled streets and shops of the Old Port in Portland; and admire the appealing fusion of hi-tech towers and classic Georgian architecture in Boston, home of the famous Freedom Trail.
NORTH OF THE BORDER
Lies a taste of Canada’s beautiful Eastern Seaboard, which comes to life in the fall. You’ll visit stunning Newfoundland countryside and the historic Signal Hill; Sydney, perfectly placed for explorations of Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Highlands or the Bras d’or Lakes.
During your Canadian visit you can experience the culture-rich cities of Halifax and Saint John.
At each Canadian call, you’re sure to find yourself fully immersed in the natural beauty, fresh air and welcoming atmosphere of this remarkable country.
Balmoral will now take you to the sunsplashed Atlantic Ocean islands of Bermuda and São Miguel, for soothing warmth, inviting crystal clear waters and glorious beaches before sailing the Atlantic Ocean to Southampton.
A smaller ship doesn’t mean less space. Far from it in fact. Balmoral has fewer people on board and so it’s easy to find a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink or a good book. There’s room to stretch out by the pool and you can get ashore more quickly too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port of call with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.
