You can take a bus, you can take a plane, you can even take a train all the way down to New York City from Toronto. But, you know what, you can hop on board a boat to NYC, too.

Step right up to Viking Cruise's "Canadian Discovery" adventure, which will disembark from the 6ix and make its way to NYC on a 13-day trip. But, of course, with many action-packed stops along the way.

After the cruise ship sets off from Toronto, the boat will sail through the St. Lawrence Seaway before it anchors at Trois-Rivières in Québec. Here, travellers can likely spot some of the Canadian wildlife the country is known for, or take a culinary tour where you can check out some local favourites.

The next day, the cruise will stop at Quebec City where you can walk throughout the Old Town and hike around the picturesque Mont-Sainte-Anne. On Day 6, the boat will stop off at Saguenay where you can go off on a high-speed "zodiac craft" that will take you right to the fjord.

On days 7 and 8, you'll stop at Sept-îles and Cap-aux-Meules in Quebec, where you can tour the archipelago or go whale watching, and look out for seals on Brion Island.

Then, the cruise will anchor in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, where travellers can listen to some local music, learn more about the province's rich history, or of course, eat their way through the city.

After a day of sailing through the Atlantic Ocean, the boat stops off in Halifax where you can take a Segway tour or kayak through McNabs Island.

Then after another day out at sea, the cruise will end off right in the Big Apple, where travellers will disembark from the boat and either sight-see in NYC or head straight back home.

Now, while the 2022 cruise dates are all completely soldout, there are still tons of bookings available for 2023 in May and August. That being said, it will cost a pretty penny, as prices to hop on board start at a cool $11,695.
