One Ocean Expeditions | Canadian Maritimes Fins and Fiddles

Holiday Duration: 11 Nights

Overview

Overview

The Maritimes by ship? Of course!

Canada’s Atlantic Provinces are one of the most fascinating places in North America and the One Ocean Expedition starts and finishes its exploration of the Maritimes in the town of Louisburg, on Cape Breton Island. You will see a staggering abundance of wildlife, including prolific birdlife, numerous seal and whale species and even have an opportunity to encounter the fabled wild horses of Sable Island. As the cruise moves towards the mouth of the St Lawrence River, you should see whales such as the humpback, minke and blue whale – as well as grey and harp seals. Daily shore excursions with expert guides, a range of wonderful activities and a inspired dining menu make this an ideal way to experience this enchanting region of Canada.
Weather and sea conditions may require an itinerary change or different shore excursions but that is half the fun of small ship expedition cruising. Ask us for details of other One Ocean Expedition cruises too.

Cabins

Cabins

All cabins feature outside viewing ranging from deck three traditional with port holes, up to decks 4 through 6 offering expansive panoramic windows. Cabins all have lower berths that have the ability to be single beds, or 1 double bed depending on your needs. Extensive renovations have provided new carpets, high quality cabinetry with soft close drawers, contemporary and spacious bathroom design, all paired with soft accent lighting offering options dependant on our guests daily activities and mood. All cabins offer modern sectional lounge quarters, providing a quiet nook to read or catch up on journalling. Space is exceptional as each cabin offers 22M squared living space, whilst the One Ocean Suites are absolutely palatial offering 44M squared with enough room to entertain or do back – flips (your choice)!

There is an open-bridge policy and guests are welcome to meet the navigating crew at virtually any time of day; there’s always something to learn from the officers on watch and the bridge is one of the best places on the ship for spotting whales and sea birds. The bridge is closed during times of tricky navigation, pilotage, or weather.
