Montréal : urban delights
Montréal : urban delights
The cruise terminal at Montréal, like in many Saint Lawrence ports of call, is exceptionally well located in the heart of the Old Port, a stone's throw from historic Old Montréal. Arrival into Montréal is spectacular and comes replete with phenomenal vistas of Old Montréal, the city centre and Mount Royal. Alexandra Quay, where the terminal is located, can accommodate two large ships and one smaller one on the same day. From the terminal, it is a short stroll — between 5 and 8 minutes — along cobblestone streets to the romantic heart of Old Montréal.

If your ship is scheduled to call into port at Havre Saint-Pierre, you will find yourself in Québec's North Shore region, about a 14-hour drive northeast along the Saint Lawrence from Montréal. The municipality is home to a little over 3000 inhabitants and extends along some 175 kilometres of coastline. To lend you a better sense of geographical isolation, Havre Saint-Pierre is located near the end of Highway 138 which continues on to Kegaska, about two and a half hours to the east. The villages beyond that are linked by coastal or air shuttle.

Iles de la Madeleine, intimate
Iles de la Madeleine, intimate
A visit to the Magdalen Islands is a one-of-a-kind experience and quite different from the other Saint Lawrence ports of call. First and foremost, the majority of ships drop anchor some distance out from the port at Cap-aux-Meules. Only smaller ships such as the Pearl Mist, CTMA Vacancier, National Geographic Explorer and others can dock in port. One of the primary differences lies in the fact that the destination comprises a chain of a dozen islands, half of which are joined by sand dunes. Although they are indeed islands, it would wrong to assume that you could tour them in a matter of a few hours given that they extend over an area of more than 200 km2.
