The falling Aussie dollar does not mean Australians need to avoid travelling to North America, with Cruise Express set to host a 20-night cruise tour to New York, New England and Canada this September, with fares locked in at 2014 levels with no currency surcharges.
The value-for-money ‘Colours of New England’ package offers return flights, a two-week cruise, 47 meals and accommodation and sightseeing in New York for four days, including a Broadway show, cruise around Manhattan Island, entry to the ‘Top of the Rock’ viewing deck in the Big Apple and a spectacular, bon voyage dinner on the last night in New York at The View – the city’s only revolving restaurant, 48 stories high.
After four days in New York, passengers will board the luxury 2100-passenger ship, Celebrity Summit and sail past the Statue of Liberty for a 14-night, round-trip cruise north to historic Boston and the Maine ports of Portland and Bar Harbor, with passengers able to enjoy the New England region’s spectacular autumn colours.
The cruise also offers visits to several Canadian destinations including French-flavoured Quebec City, Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, the lighthouses and fishing villages of Nova Scotia and also Canada’s own Sydney – a quaint Nova Scotian port of 31,000 people, which, like Australia’s Sydney, was named after British home secretary, Lord Sydney, in the 1780s.
Departing Australia on September 16, 2015, the escorted, 20-night tour is available from A$6990 per person, twin-share, including return flights from Australia, four nights’ accommodation and sightseeing in New York, the 14-night cruise, onboard gratuities, group transfers and a total of 47 meals. Fares, which are subject to conditions and availability, are pegged at 2014 levels with no currency surcharges and the itinerary offers minimal, out-of-pocket expenses.
