Begin your Canadian cruise and stay holiday with 4 nights in downtown Toronto. Explore Toronto at your leisure, soaking up the sights and sounds and perhaps flexing the credit card in the world-class shopping centres. Venture into the dynamic neighbourhoods that the city is famous for and spend some time unwinding on the incredible waterfront.
Then it’s time to head to one of Canada’s top destinations Niagara Falls. Marvel at the spectacle of the famous Niagara Falls, one of Canada’s most spectacular sights. One of the seven natural wonders of the world; Niagara is actually made up of 3 separate waterfalls, the American Falls, the Horseshoe or Canadian Falls and Bridal Veil Falls.

Toronto - Late spring, early summer and autumn are the most pleasant walking months in the city—and this is a walkable city. September, one of the loveliest months of the year, is also packed with the Toronto International Film Festival fêtes and a spate of other weekend festivals. If you plan travelling during these times I would suggest you book your accommodation early otherwise you may have difficulty finding a place to stay.
