Falling in Love with Fall
There’s an old business adage that says "Those who fail to plan, plan to fail." The same could be said of travel vacations. Although summer has barely made an official entrance, it’s never too early to think about the next change of season and your next getaway.

And what makes a fall foliage cruise through New England such a great choice? According to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), fall cruises that hug the Eastern Seaboard offer one of the very best ways in which travelers can get a real sense of America’s rich history, while at the same time taking in the incredible bursts of autumn’s colors. These cruises appeal to both the senses and the intellect.

New England exudes its own authentic charm and beauty amid a backdrop of brilliant fall foliage to enjoy. Imagine cruising through a region rich with museums, galleries, historic sights and world-class dining. There are lighthouses to climb, romantic seaside hamlets to explore and freshly broiled lobster to feast upon.

Many of these cruises are very convenient if you’re looking to get away while staying relatively close to home.

A sample of a New England/Maritime Canada cruise might go as follows: Set sail from Boston, and call at ports such as Portland and Bar Harbor, Maine; Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. and Halifax, Nova Scotia. While onboard, enjoy your ship's wide open-spaces, balconies and acres of glass walls and windows to soak in the changing landscape and brilliant fall colors.

While in port, consider a guided shore excursion featuring any of the following: Boston’s historic Fenway Park; a walking tour of mansions in Newport, R.I.; an ocean trail hike in Bar Harbor, Maine or a kayak adventure in Portland, Maine.

So don’t hesitate to contact Cruise Holidays for more booking details for your next fall getaway.
