Greenland and Eastern Canada Cruise

aboard the Caribbean Princess

Tour Highlights

In a region of crystal clear skies and the world’s cleanest air, Greenland is known for its magnificent vistas of mountains and valleys, stunning icebergs, wildlife on land and in the water, and colourful houses perched on its rocky slopes.
Here on the world’s largest island, you will find volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, lava fields, green mountains with beautiful wildflowers, breathtaking fjords and photogenic villages of colourfully painted wooden cottages. Icebergs and glaciers are probably the most famous features of the island - colossal fantastic shapes of blue and white that float on a sea of deep azure. As for wildlife, Greenland is flush with seals, whales, polar bears and reindeer, to name but a few. The people who live here are a unique blend of Inuit and Danish blood, which has resulted in a Greenlandic society rich in culture. 

This cruise, which begins and ends in New York, sails first to Nova Scotia, then to spectacular Greenland, and returns via St. John’s Newfoundland, so we will also get to experience the beauty, historic areas and the hospitality of the Atlantic provinces. 

Our ship for this cruise program is the Caribbean Princess, which features all the amenities of a 5-Star resort hotel. Award-winning shore excursions and fascinating onboard programs will bring everything to life, and talented chefs will take you on a mouth-watering culinary journey featuring local fare. 

Take in some of the finest cruise ship entertainment as the theatre lights up the top deck with feature films, lavish Broadway productions and international performers in the state-of-the-art Princess theatres! 

* All shore excursions are optional and may be purchased in advance on Princess Cruises’ website or on board the ship.

* Shore excursions at Greenland ports may be limited. Most of the ports there are easy for walking and exploring.
