Cruises from Quebec City depart in the fall.
Upon entering this provincial Canadian capital, visitors will think they've arrived in medieval Europe. The Lower Town lines the shore of the St. Lawrence River, while in the Upper Town, stone houses front cobblestone streets. The often-photographed Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac hotel overlooks the city from its high perch. Stops on sightseeing excursions include Petit Champlain, the oldest street in North America; Dufferin Terrace, with its superb views of the St. Lawrence River; the Citadel, built in 1820; and Montmorency Falls.
