Enchantment of the Seas - 8 Night New England & Canada Cruise
If sailing towards the tropics does not suit you, Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas travels north to explore the coast of New England and Canada. During your the sea days, enjoy the on-board amenities like gambling at the Casino Royal, learning to climb on the rock wall or soaking up the sun on the pool deck.
While in Boston you can walk the Freedom Trail or visit the Salem & Witch museum. In Halifax, golfing excursions or city tours are popular. In Portland, enjoy a lobster bake or visit fishing villages like Kennebunkport. Or, rent a bicycle for the day and have a self-paced tour of Bar Harbor and St. John.
It is also worth noting that as of early 2010, Royal Caribbean is spending more than $100 million to retrofit its ships with Advanced Wastewater Treatment. This greener cruising initiative is aimed at reducing Royal Caribbean's impact on the world's oceans.
