Sydney Harbour Bridge. Australia.

People enjoying Manly beach in Sydney, Australia

People enjoying Manly beach in Sydney, Australia

Bondi Beach gets all the attention, but Manly Beach in the Northern Beaches is a bit more local. The Corso is lined with shops and restaurants, including local favourite, Hugo's. If surfing is your thing, this is the place to be. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a fantastic way to soak in the city's coastline.

The Gap at Watsons Bay in Sydney, Australia

Walk Watsons

Hop on the ferry or one of the regular buses that go to Watsons Bay to enjoy the scenic hike around South Head. During your journey, you'll enjoy views of Sydney Harbour, North Head, the historic Hornby Lighthouse and, of course, the sapphire-blue Pacific Ocean. The Gap offers breathtaking views of the sea from the rocky cliffside.

A plate of fresh Sydney rock oysters

Local Cuisine

With all the water surrounding you, it's no surprise that seafood takes centre stage on many plates in the city. Head to Sydney Fish Market for giant Sydney Rock oysters or classic fish and ships. Stop into a local pie shop for a traditional Australian meat pie, or explore Sydney's international side with udon or ramen noodles at a Japanese noodle bar, or seek out prawn dumplings in Chinatown.

An opal ring displayed on a stone

There are plenty of shopping centres in the heart of the city, including Westfield Mall, Pitt Street Mall and the wonderful Queen Victoria Building, which is now a shopping centre featuring top designers. Seek out cutting boards made from local camphor laurel – they're not only beautiful but also have natural antimicrobial properties. During your Sydney cruise holiday, look for jewellery made from opal, the national gemstone of Australia.

Top Sights & Attractions To See Before Cruises From Sydney

Sydney opera house.

The Sydney Opera House is the city’s defining landmark and a fabulous display of modern architecture. The exterior was designed in the shape of the sails of a sailboat, and its unique structure often gleams in the sunlight. The Opera House’s sail shape also provides excellent acoustics for the many performances that occur inside the venue each year, which include opera, ballet, music, comedy, kid shows, inspirational speakers, and more. 

Taronga Zoo

Sydney’s Taronga Zoo is a popular attraction for animal lovers embarking on one of our cruises from Sydney. This award-winning zoo features over 4,000 animals, which includes species that are native to Australia as well as rare and endangered animals. Head up on the Sky Safari, the only cable car in Sydney, for spectacular views.

Bondi Beach

Australia’s most famous beach is also one of its most beautiful. Bondi Beach is only about 15 minutes southeast of Sydney’s city center and provides a quintessential Australian beach-going experience. You’ll find soft golden sand, beachfront restaurants and bars, and lots of surfing and other water sports. 

Manly Beach

Another popular beach to visit in Australia is Manly Beach, especially if you love surfing. Manly Beach was the site of the world’s first surfing contest back in 1964. While its legendary waves along the northern end of the beach at Queenscliff Bommie are only recommended for advanced surfers, the area on the southern end of Manly Beach has great waves for beginner surfers, too.

Top things to do in sydney, climb the sydney harbour bridge.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a heritage-listed bridge made of steel and features a defining arch, and one of the top things to do in Sydney is climb it.

Enjoy the View from Sydney Tower Eye

Another way to get high above the city is during a ride on the Sydney Tower Eye, which takes you to the highest point in Sydney. You’ll have a bird’s-eye view of the harbor, city skyline, and distant Blue Mountains off the coastline. After you take a ride on the Sydney Tower Eye, you can also visit the observation deck, 4-D cinema, and other exhibits that come included with admission.

Play at Luna Park Sydney

If you’re looking for some family fun before embarking on a cruise from Sydney, head to  Luna Park, a restored amusement park that dates back to the 1930s. Both kids and adults will love going on exhilarating rides, taking a leisurely spin on the Ferris wheel, and gliding down giant slides. During your visit, you’ll also find carnival-style foods and games.

Where c an I eat in Sydney?

Foodies will love Sydney’s international food scene. From ritzy waterfront restaurants to laid-back eateries along one of Sydney’s “eat streets,” the city has it all. For an after-dinner drink, it’s hard to beat a cocktail in one of the sky bars located atop its many skyscrapers. If you’re looking for a gourmet meal in a setting like nowhere else, head to Sixpenny or Bennelong, an elegant restaurant located inside the Sydney Opera House.

What’s the culture and history of Sydney?

Sydney Harbour was originally the home of the aboriginal tribes of Australia. With the arrival of Britain’s First Fleet in 1788, the city of Sydney (named after Lord Sydney, the British Home Secretary at the time) was established as a penal colony of Great Britain. By 1840, the transportation of convicts to the city had ceased. A decade later, the population of the city grew exponentially after a local gold rush. 

Up until 1900, Sydney was the capital of New South Wales, a British colony. But after the Commonwealth of Australia was established in 1901, Sydney became the capital of the state of New South Wales, which joined the Australian Federation. The wild and harsh start of colonial Sydney is now long in the past. Today, you’ll find a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with one of the most diverse populations in the world.

Where can I go shopping near the Sydney cruise port?

You will find an assortment of shopping malls near the Sydney cruise port. Some of the largest are Westfield Sydney, The Galeries, and World Square. For local boutiques, head to the intersection of Oxford Street and Glenmore Road. In the neighborhood of Paddington, you’ll find shops with cutting-edge fashion from new designers. For souvenirs and art, head to The Rocks near the Sydney Opera House, or the Strand for Australian hats and boots. 

How can I get around Sydney?

Sydney has a variety of public transportation options. Its extensive bus route system goes to many of the most popular tourist sites, plus there are a light rail and ferry service. In addition, the Sydney Metro provides fast, frequent service around the city. As for taxis, you’ll find them waiting right outside the Sydney cruise terminal, as well as in taxi ranks all around the city.

What are the local currency and tipping customs?

Australia’s official currency is the Australian dollar. The paper bills come in increments of $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100. Credit cards are widely accepted, but traveler’s checks are not. Tipping isn’t expected in Australia, but is appreciated. If you do tip, a smaller amount around 10% is usually acceptable.

The Points Guy

12 best cruises to Canada and New England

MSN has partnered with The Points Guy for our coverage of credit card products. MSN and The Points Guy may receive a commission from card issuers.

Canada and New England cruises are best known for taking mature travelers to experience vibrant autumnal foliage in multiple destinations.

However, the region’s photogenic landscapes, charming ports and fresh local seafood make time ashore uniquely enjoyable for couples and families. Plus, late summer and early fall getaways can be convenient and affordable, especially if you already live on the East Coast.

These cruises, mainly offered from late August through mid-October (although limited June and July dates are also available), sail round trip from New York or Boston or one-way between either city and Montreal or Quebec City.

Itinerary lengths for Canada and New England cruises range from seven to 11 nights. Ships typically call on ports in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, as well as Bar Harbor, Maine, or even Newport, Rhode Island. High-end, smaller-ship cruise lines may offer more in-depth itineraries of 11 to 15 nights, with more inclusions and higher price tags.

For cruise news, reviews and tips, sign up for TPG’s cruise newsletter .

Remember that it’s important to book well in advance if you want to cruise during peak foliage weeks, generally late September to mid-October. Also, Newport, Bar Harbor and some lesser-visited ports on these itineraries do not have cruise piers; transferring to shore via tender boat can be time-consuming, if not difficult or impossible for passengers with mobility challenges.

Here are 12 of the best cruises to Canada and New England to consider.

Carnival: 7-day Canada

Carnival Cruise Line will bring Carnival Venezia to New York in June 2023.

The 4,072-passenger ship, a four-year-old Vista-class vessel formerly in the fleet of Carnival’s sister line Costa Cruises, will offer fun and affordably priced four- to seven-day Canada & New England itineraries from mid-August through late September in 2023 and 2024 — albeit with a decidedly Italian flair.

Despite the name, the seven-night sailings actually skip New England and call on three Canadian ports — St. John, New Brunswick, and Halifax and Sydney in Nova Scotia. They also feature three “fun days at sea.”

Who should go: Both Carnival and Costa are known for large ships with exuberant decor and a party vibe. Carnival Venezia mixes Costa’s glitzy Italian-style dining and bar offerings with Carnival favorites such as Guy’s Burger Joint and Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse.

So, anyone booking these sailings can expect the onboard ambiance to energize the typically sedate Canada and New England experience. The ship is family friendly, with a kids club and Waterworks aquapark on board. It’s suitable for all ages — if a lively, social cruise is preferred.

Celebrity: 11-night Boston, Maine & Canada

Celebrity Cruises is offering its 11-night Boston, Maine & Canada itinerary on seven early autumn dates in 2023 and 2024. The round-trip sailings from Boston — three aboard 2,158-passenger Celebrity Summit this year, which are almost sold out, and four on 2,852-passenger Celebrity Eclipse next year — call on ports in Maine (Portland, Rockland or Bar Harbor), Nova Scotia (Halifax and Sydney), Prince Edward Island (Charlottetown), and Quebec (Quebec City, where the ship overnights).

The overnight in Quebec City also offers an opportunity to enjoy one of Canada’s most charming cities after dark. Don’t miss the narrow, cobblestone streets of 400-year-old Old Quebec, with its inviting cafes.

Who should go: This round-trip itinerary is a convenient option for couples or friends seeking to experience the highlights of New England and Canada during the prime late-summer and early-autumn foliage season. Celebrity’s ships are designed with adults in mind. They offer multiple onboard bars and lounges for socializing — and the indoor, adults-only Solarium pool is perfect for relaxation as fall temperatures dip.

Holland America: 11-day Newfoundland & New England Discovery

Not all Canada and New England cruises are timed for leaf-peeping. Holland America’s 11-day Newfoundland & New England Discovery in August 2024 on 1,438-guest Volendam aims to make the most of the region’s late-summer weather.

The cruise embarks in Boston and disembarks in Montreal. In between, Volendam visits seven additional ports (Portland, Maine; St. John, New Brunswick; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Corner Brook, Newfoundland; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and Saguenay and Quebec City, Quebec). It offers a comprehensive tour of Canada’s Atlantic Provinces and Quebec.

Who should go: Holland America attracts retirees and other passengers in the 60-plus age range. The compact Volendam offers a traditional onboard atmosphere, but foodies should know it offers a limited selection of dining venues and lounges. On the plus side, Volendam’s pool features a retractable roof in case of cool or rainy weather. This particular itinerary has no ports requiring tender transfers, making all destinations accessible to most passengers with disabilities.

Norwegian: 7-night Canada & New England, Newport & Portland

Norwegian Cruise Line has multiple ships cruising almost two dozen Canada and New England itineraries from Boston, New York and Baltimore in 2023 and 2024. For value, convenience and a megaship experience, check out the seven-night Canada & New England: Newport & Portland itinerary sailing round trip from New York aboard 4,266-passenger Norwegian Escape in September and October 2023.

In 2024, 7-night Canada & New England: Bar Harbor & Newport sailings aboard 3,963-passenger Norwegian Breakaway are almost identical. Both call on five ports: Newport, Rhode Island; Portland and Bar Harbor, Maine; St. John, New Brunswick; and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Who should go: Norwegian’s Breakaway-class ships offer a resort-meets-theme-park experience with a lively onboard vibe appealing to couples, families and groups of friends. That said, the ships lack an indoor pool.

Cruises during the cooler fall months are best suited for those who enjoy the outdoors. Bar Harbor is the gateway to Acadia National Park, and St. John offers access to the Bay of Fundy’s legendary tides. They’re also ideal for travelers who appreciate historic architecture. Newport is known for its Gilded Age mansions, and Halifax offers access to the picturesque village of Peggy’s Cove.

Oceania: 15-night Colonial America

The 15-night Colonial America voyage from Montreal to Miami in late September 2023 aboard Oceania Cruises ’ newest ship, the 1,200-passenger Oceania Vista, calls on nine ports along the Eastern seaboard. It offers passengers a range of experiences, from autumnal landscapes to tropical breezes.

The sailing is aboard the Vista, the cruise line’s first new-build ship in more than a decade. It will visit Quebec City and Saguenay in Quebec; Sydney and Shelburne in Nova Scotia; Bar Harbor and Portland in Maine; Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts; New York (with an overnight); and Charleston in South Carolina before passengers disembark in Miami.

Who should go: Oceania’s premium cruise experience appeals to couples seeking an onboard ambiance that combines the ample public spaces of a larger ship with the elegant decor and elevated service of a small luxury vessel. Oceania has long focused on culinary excellence, and Vista was built with fine dining in mind.

The ship offers several new restaurants, including Ember for modern American cuisine and the wellness-focused Aquamar Kitchen, along with guest favorites such as Red Ginger for pan-Asian and Polo Grill for steaks and seafood. The ship also features a new, immersive mixology program.

Princess Cruises: 7-day Canada & New England

Princess Cruises offers multiple seven- to 13-day round-trip and one-way sailings to Canada and New England from New York and Boston in 2023 and 2024.

However, our pick is the seven-day Canada & New England itinerary in 2024, which combines visits to five ports with a cruise aboard one of Princess’ newer Royal-class ships, the 3,360-passenger Enchanted Princess.

Passengers will sail round trip from New York and visit Newport, Rhode Island; Boston, Massachusetts; Bar Harbor, Maine; St. John, New Brunswick; and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Weekly sailings take place from late August to mid-October. (You can sail the same itinerary on the 3,080-passenger Emerald Princess in 2023.)

Who should go: Princess ships, even its newer vessels, offer a more traditional take on cruising that’s popular with couples and groups of friends who enjoy a quieter experience — although the after-dinner sing-a-longs in Crooners piano bar can get lively. Enchanted Princess does lack waterslides, thrill-oriented activities and an indoor pool if those amenities are important to you.

Travelers who enjoy dining at different venues each night will appreciate the ship’s five specialty restaurants (for an additional cost) and more than half-dozen complimentary dining venues. Don’t miss the excellent Gigi’s Pizzeria, a sit-down restaurant included in the cruise fare.

Regent: 11-night Fall Season Colors Boston to Montreal

Regent Seven Seas Cruises ’ newest ship, 750-passenger Seven Seas Grandeur, debuts in late 2023. In fall 2024, it will sail a series of Canada and New England itineraries from New York and Boston, as well as Montreal.

The 11-night Fall Season Colors Boston to Montreal sailing Oct. 1, 2024, is timed to allow passengers to enjoy regional foliage at its peak as the ship calls on Portland, Maine; Saint John, New Brunswick; Sydney, Nova Scotia; Corner Brook, Newfoundland; and Havre-Saint-Pierre, Sept-Iles, Saguenay, and Quebec City in Quebec.

Who should go: Regent’s all-inclusive luxury cruises — which include airfare, transfers, onboard beverages and dining, gratuities, Wi-Fi and unlimited shore excursions — have correspondingly luxurious prices. So, passengers are mostly affluent professionals and retirees who enjoy the seamless ease of an all-inclusive sailing offering five-star service.

Connoisseurs of fine dining will be in their element with eight onboard restaurants, which include Chartreuse for fine French cuisine and Pacific Rim for flavorful pan-Asian menus. Plus, passengers can indulge their foodie passions with chef-led classes in the onboard Culinary Arts Kitchen.

Seven Seas Grandeur does not offer an indoor pool for cool-weather swims.

Royal Caribbean: 9-night Canada & New England

Royal Caribbean offers Canada and New England cruises from three cities (Boston, New York and Baltimore) in late summer and fall 2023. To truly experience the Eastern Seaboard, try the nine-night Canada & New England Cruise sailing round trip from Cape Liberty, New Jersey, aboard the 3,798-passenger Liberty of the Seas. The itinerary visits Boston; Portland and Bar Harbor in Maine; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and St. John, New Brunswick.

Who should go: Liberty of the Seas is designed to appeal to all ages. A late-August sailing with affordable pricing means a late-summer family getaway is possible, while September and October dates attract more couples and retirees.

Liberty of the Seas doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of Royal Caribbean’s newer, larger ships. However, it does feature waterslides, a kids’ aquapark, a FlowRider surf simulator, an ice skating rink, mini-golf, an arcade, 11 dining venues, 10 bars and lounges, Broadway-style entertainment and more. It also boasts an adults-only indoor Solarium pool and several outdoor pools and hot tubs.

Seabourn: 12-day Canada & New England Fall Foliage

Enjoying the region’s colorful autumnal landscapes is the primary agenda on Seabourn’s 12-day Canada & New England Fall Foliage cruises, scheduled from late August to early October in both 2023 and 2024 aboard the 458-passenger Seabourn Quest.

These sailings between New York and Montreal visit Newport, Rhode Island; Boston, Massachusetts; Bar Harbor, Maine; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and Saguenay, Quebec City, and Trois-Rivières in Quebec.

Who should go: Seabourn ’s all-inclusive small-luxury-cruise experience is reflected in its fares, so these itineraries require a generous travel budget. As a result, passengers are typically financially well-off couples, including international travelers, who appreciate the fleet’s private-club-style ambiance and personalized service.

All of the ship’s cabins are spacious, ocean-facing suites, and 90% of Quest’s accommodations feature a veranda. The ship might be small, but it still offers four onboard restaurants, including The Grill by Thomas Keller, famed chef of Napa Valley’s French Laundry.

Silversea: 11-day New York to Quebec City

For upscale, door-to-door, all-inclusive cruising to New England and Canada, Silversea Cruises offers almost two dozen options on a wide selection of summer and fall dates. The most comprehensive trip is an 11-day New York-to-Quebec City itinerary in summer 2024 aboard the 388-passenger Silver Shadow.

The itinerary includes calls on Newport, Rhode Island; Boston, Massachusetts; Portland, Maine; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and Cap-aux-Meules, Saguenay, and Quebec City in Quebec.

Who should go: Silversea passengers are generally wealthy retired couples passionate about cruising on small luxury ships. They appreciate fine wines and elevated dining, such as the French cuisine offered in La Dame, one of four onboard restaurants. Nightlife on Silver Shadow is generally low-key, though there is a small casino.

Silversea’s all-inclusive pricing includes airfare, transfers, gratuities (and butler service), complimentary beverages, and at least one included shore excursion per port.

Viking: 13-day Eastern Seaboard Explorer

Viking’s 13-day Eastern Seaboard Explorer itinerary aboard its identical 930-guest ocean ships, Viking Neptune, Viking Star and Viking Mars, is offered on seven dates in June, July and September 2023, and three dates in August and September 2024.

The one-way sailing travels between New York and Montreal (or vice versa, with overnights in each city), and the ships visit Quebec City, Saguenay, and Gaspé in Quebec; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Boston.

Who should go: Adults-only Viking appeals to cruisers who appreciate a subdued onboard experience centered around learning about a destination via guest lectures and shore excursions. The cruise line’s passengers tend to be retirement age or older.

Viking’s fans love the ships’ serene Scandinavian-inspired decor, complimentary spa thermal area and pricing that includes wine and beer with lunch and dinner, gratuities and one free shore excursion per port. The ships do not offer an onboard casino, but two pools (one with a retractable roof) offer relaxation during sea days.

Windstar: 11-day Southeast Canadian Explorations

The 11-day Southeast Canadian Explorations itinerary aboard Windstar Cruises ’ 312-guest Star Pride cruises between Montreal to Boston in September and October 2023 and September and October 2024. Sailings call on Quebec City, Gaspé (or Baie-Comeau), and Cap-aux-Meules in Quebec; Louisbourg and Halifax in Nova Scotia; and Portland and Eastport (or Bar Harbor) in Maine.

Who should go: Star Pride is one of the smallest ships offering Canada and New England itineraries, so these sailings are ideal for travelers seeking an intimate cruise experience with more casual camaraderie than most other small-luxury-ship cruises. The ship features five onboard restaurants, and staterooms are generously sized (the smallest is 277 square feet).

While cruise fares are not all-inclusive, passengers can pay a daily fee for a package that includes unlimited beer, wine and cocktails, as well as Wi-Fi and crew gratuities.
