While the West Coast may be lamenting the reduction in ships heading north to Alaska, the East Coast – specifically the Canadian Maritimes – stands to have one of their best seasons ever.
In Halifax, Silversea‘s Silver Spirit will kick off the Canada and New England cruise season on April 27th when she calls at historic Pier 22 – the Canadian equivilant of Ellis Island during the heydey of transaltantic immigration over one hundred years ago.  Three days later, Costa Altantica will also call in Halifax as she kicks off a series of early Canada/New England voyages.
Typically, the cruise season in the maritimes begins around June, and picks up dramatically in the fall months of September and October, when fall colors are out in full-force.  This year, the season kicks off in April and continues full-force until the end of October, when Queen Mary 2 wraps things up.
Some of the ships calling this year include Holland America‘s incredibly-popular Maasdam, which has plied these waters for many years, as well as relative newcomers like Carnival Glory, Enchantment of the Seas, MSC Poesia, and even a visit by the brand-new AIDAluna, flagship of German cruise line AIDA.
For those who have never considered a trip to the Maritimes, there has never been a better time to explore this beautiful and friendly area.
