QM2_Silversea_Niagara_Website Banners21.jpg
Cape Cod (Scenic Cruising)/Boston

DAY 20 | 9 Jun
Bar Harbor (Maine)

QM2_Silversea_Niagara_Website Banners24.jpg
Sydney (Canada)

Once the booming hub of coal mines and steel mills, this bustling city has slowed down to enjoy the quieter things in life. And so, should you.

DAY 24 | 13 Jun
QM2_Silversea_Niagara_Website Banners26.jpg
St. John’s (Canada)

Steep streets that lean towards the sea, hemmed in by vibrant, multicoloured houses make up the oldest city in North America without any of its overwhelming atmosphere. But if you want to dive beneath the surface to see some of its wildlife, you could head to the Fluvarium where you can see its local residents – the brown trout and eels – and learn more about the freshwater ecosystem that weaves through this destination.

DAY 25 - 28 | 14 - 17 Jun
At Sea

For your transoceanic sailing you can embrace more of your ship. With everything taken care of, from another chilled glass of lemonade while you sit in the Panorama Lounge to a candle-lit dinner for two, the only thing you need to concern yourself with is what to do next. Maybe you’ll brush up on your tango skills during one of the complimentary lessons, or head to an enrichment session where you could learn a variety of things from a world-class sommelier to natural history – it’s completely up to you.

DAY 29 | 18 Jun
QM2_Silversea_Niagara_Website Banners28.jpg
Cork (Ireland)

One of your final stops on this luxurious cruise is classic Cork. Imbibed with Irish spirit and a friendly attitude, when in Ireland do as the locals do – head to the pub. Find one of its old taverns interspersed between brightly coloured houses and grab one of its world-class beers before heading, ironically, to the English Market where you can sample true, juicy Irish steak. To finish off the day, walk along its pleasant riverside pathway and savour the atmosphere of Ireland’s second biggest city.

DAY 30 | 19 Jun
QM2_Silversea_Niagara_Website Banners29.jpg

For your penultimate destination you’ll arrive back on English soil in charming Cornwall, home to rugged, wind-swept shorelines, some of the world’s best surfing and arguably, the best pasties. When you dock in Falmouth today, you could stay close to port and explore the Maritime Museum which hosts a rich history or sun yourself on its beaches. But where’s the fun in that? Why not try the untamed pathways that lead into the generous nature surrounding this wild and wonderful coastline?

DAY 31 | 20 Jun
