Setting sail from New York

The Big Apple is one of the world's most iconic, cosmopolitan cities, a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. From the lofty heights of the Manhattan skyscrapers to the hipster hangouts of resurgent Brooklyn, New York City buzzes with energy and excitement, and there's never been a better time to visit. Cultural highlights include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts and the theatres of Broadway, and the culinary scene is arguably the most exciting in the US, with an ever-changing smorgasbord of innovative restaurants, pop-ups and fashionable street food trucks.

Our tip

Head to the ‘Top of the Rock’ at the Rockefeller Centre, for views rivalling those at from the observation platform of the Empire State Building, but without the crowds.

Arriving in Montréal

Bilingual Montréal is Québec's largest city, a vibrant island metropolis with a distinctive blend of old style European charm and thrusting modernity. Architectural highlights include the beautiful Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal, and the city also boasts the world's third largest botanical garden. Winters here can be harsh, but in summer the city comes alive with festivals, including the famous International Jazz Festival in June/July. Montréal is also a real Mecca for foodies, and can pose a serious threat to the waistline, with all manner of gastronomic treats on offer.

Don't miss

The onomatopoetic Tam Tam day if you’re around on a Sunday during the summer – go to Mont-Royal park to see, and hear, the drums.
