The Disney Magic will embark on two special cruises to Quebec this fall that will take the ship to three new ports that are new to Disney Cruise Line passengers and the Disney Parks Blog is sharing some of the Port Adventures that will be available in those brand new stops.
For the first sailing, guests will board in New York City and stop at Halifax, before visiting the new ports of Saguenay and Baie-Comeau, then stopping in Quebec City after an overnight stay there. The second sailing will return to New York City from Quebec City and visit the same four ports.
Saguenay features rich wildlife, mountains, forests, and the only fjord in North America that is inhabited on both shores. The harbor city is known for its culture, with museums and art galleries, cultural opportunities that highlight the French heritage, and mouthwatering cuisine.
With the Best of Saguenay Port Adventure, guests will be able to visit the Saguenay Fjord and the Fjord Museum, explore a historic paper mill, check out a local family wool business, and make a stop at the home of painter Arthur Villeneuve.
Guests can explore the local waterways with the Zodiac Adventure or Sea Kayaking. The deep waters of the fjord are home to a multitude of sea life, including seals and whales.
For the grown-ups, the Microbrewery and Vineyard tour is a relaxing way to discover local spirits, some featuring local ingredients like blueberries and maple.
Baie-Comeau, a young city near the Manicouagan Crater, boasts rushing rivers, dense forests, and glacial retreats.
Guests can take a closer look with the Experience Glacier and Shell Valley Port Adventure, with a stop at the Garden of Glaciers, that includes a multi-sensory exploration of glaciers, and Seashell Valley, a geological site featuring piles of seashells in the middle of the forest.
Baie-Comeau Heritage includes a photo stop at the Saint-Pancrace harbor and an exploration of life in a lumberjack town, complete with a hearty lumberjack meal.
The Baie-Comeau Historical Walking Tour features a tour of the town, the Sainte-Amelie Church, and traditional tea at a local hotel.
Quebec City is nestled in the valley of the Saint Lawrence River. Reminiscent of France, guests will find Quebec City to have a unique European charm.
The Historic Quebec with Montmorency Falls Port Adventure will take guests to the historic Place-Royale square, the Chateau Frontenac hotel, through the countryside of Quebec, and to the Montmorency falls, which are taller than Niagara Falls.
Learn about the Native American culture of the area with a visit to the Huron-Wendake Village and Onhoua Cheteke8e. There the Huron people will share their home and their heritage.
The Quebec City Food Tour includes a food crawl across Old Quebec and features samples of over a dozen French-Canadian dishes. Finally, for the grown ups, the Microbrewery Tour will take guests to some of the trendy local breweries in the Saint-Roch district.
The first 7-Night Quebec Cruise leaves from New York City to Quebec City on September 20th, and the Magic returns from Quebec City with another 7-night sailing on September 27th.
