A very different ocean cruise proposition

Many ocean cruises feature exotic and warm destinations like the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. 

Not this one. Cruise lovers are being offered the opportunity to explore the rugged landscapes of Newfoundland on a circumnavigation of the wild Canadian island. 

My late father was Newfoundlander and I still have many family members living on what is a fascinating island with unique history and amazing wildlife. 

Adventure Canada and Australian small ship specialist Cruise Traveller are offering an 11-night Newfoundland Circumnavigation package that begins in quirky St. Johns, on June 25, 2020, and
includes one-night’s pre-cruise accommodation and a 10-night circumnavigation of Newfoundland.

St John's is the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador province and its harbour was settled by the British in the 1600s. It is bleak and cold in winter, stunning in summer with its colourful row houses (below). 

Guests can save 15% when booking twin share - prices start from US$5945 per person, twin-share, in a category 3 interior cabin – a saving of US$1050 per person. 

In a junior suite, prices start from US$12,575 per person, twin share – a saving of US$2220 per person. This offer is available until October 31, 2019.

For a limited time and subject to availability, Adventure Canada and Cruise Traveller are also offering supplement-free fares for single travellers (in categories 3-7). 

Newfoundland is an island located off Canada’s east Atlantic Coast, similar in size to Ireland but a whole lot wilder. 

The cruise will be on board 198-passenger, eco-friendly vessel Ocean Endeavour. 

Highlights include a traditional Mikmaq welcome at Miawpukek First Nation Reserve and hiking at Gros Morne National Park. The itinerary also features a visit to the restored, 1000-year-old Norse Settlement of L'Anse aux Meadows - the earliest evidence of European presence in North America.

Before returning to St. John’s guests will also visit the French territory of Saint-Pierre. Located off the coast of Newfoundland, Saint-Pierre is the last bastion of France’s colonial presence in North America.  

It all sounds fantastic. 

Flights from Australia are, of course, extra.
