Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1-2: New York, USA: Hotel Overnight – Depart 17.00

On arrival in New York, you will be transferred to the hotel for your one night stay. In the morning you will be transferred to the port to board MSC Meraviglia. The ship departs in the evening, sailing past the iconic Statue of Liberty.

Wandering through the patchwork of neighbourhoods is as great a thrill as any single sight. Frantic Chinatown edges stylish Soho , which is but a stone’s throw from the quiet, angled lanes of the once-bohemian West Village . A perfect espresso in a shabby-chic Williamsburg café, a rooftop view from Chelsea’s High Line or a ride on the “A” to Far Rockaway is worth much more than an “I Love New York” handbag. Cheaper, too, and the memory will last longer.

Day 3: At Sea:

Explore the facilities onboard as you sail north to Canada.

Day 4: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada: Arrive 13.00 Depart 19.00

Where the Hills Meet the Sea

Nova Scotia: one of the most spectacular wild landscapes on the Canadian Atlantic coast with its vast green areas is a true paradise for nature lovers who can admire moose, eagles, and go whale watching to see the numerous types of cetaceans that live in the surrounding seas, including whales and dolphins.
Your MSC cruise will take you on the discovery of this beautiful Canadian province, which is also home to some of the oldest cities in North America, such as Sydney.

Located on a fjord of Spanish Bay, Sydney is the largest urban center on the island of Cape Breton, with a past linked to the mining industry. The tourist attractions of the city are mainly related to its cultural heritage from Scotland: its population, in fact, is a diverse mix of nationalities that put on various Canadian cultural events of Scottish or Eastern European origin taking place throughout the year.

Day 5: Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada: Arrive 09.00 Depart 17.00

A Fishing Village in the Middle of the Woods.

Overlooking the icy waters of the Humber River in the Bay of Islands, and surrounded by the largest mountains in Newfoundland is Corner Brook, one of Canada’s most beautiful towns and the next stop on your MSC Cruise.

Corner Brook is small, with fewer than 20,000 inhabitants, but it is full of charm. It is the perfect place for those who love nature, walking in the open air and hiking in the woods. Near the city, there are amazing wooded areas ideal for walks through lush, pristine nature, where you can observe and meet up-close some of the animal species typical of the area.

Cox’s Cove is also worth a visit for its breathtaking view and waterfalls. A small fishing village, it was founded in the 1840s and is located on Middle Arm, a large bay off the Bay of Islands, not far from Corner Brook.

Day 6: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada: Arrive 12.00 Depart 20.00

Canada’s Birthplace.

“Land of emeralds, rubies and sapphires” was the description of the beauty of Prince Edward Island given by author Lucy Maud Montgomery, famous for having narrated the adventures of red-haired Anne of Green Gables in many of her novels. It is precisely here, in the land that is home to many events focused around this literary character – celebrated by festivals and places to visit – that Charlottetown is found, a stop not to be missed on your MSC cruise.

Colonial architecture, elegant Victorian-style buildings, tree-lined avenues, perfectly manicured parks and gardens: the capital of Prince Edward Island is a typical example of an urban English checkerboard layout with a central square with public buildings and four other smaller squares arranged symmetrically around it.

Day 7: At Sea

Day 8-9: Quebec City, Quebec, Canada: Arrive 07.00 Overnight Depart 13.00

The Oldest City in New France!

Pretty and well-maintained, Québec City is located on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River and is dominated by majestic Chateau Frontenac, the symbolic hotel of the capital, known for its fairytale architecture offering a spectacular view of the surrounding roads and green areas.

The excursions around this Canadian metropolis available on your MSC Cruise are numerous: visiting Quebec City is like taking a trip into the past where the city’s four hundred years of history can be seen everywhere. The entire old city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to the amazing set of human works of art and architecture and the natural beauty that is found everywhere.

Day 10-11: At Sea

Day 12: New York, USA: Arrive 09.00

Following your disembarkation, you will be transferred to the airport to get your return flight to Dublin.

1 night in a 4* New York hotel, room only, before your cruise.
