Approximately 4½ Hours
Prince Edward Island is noted for its friendly people, warm hospitality and welcoming smiles, but this picturesque Island also boasts many icons, ranging from sprawling sandy beaches, a sassy redhead named Anne, and the rolling red cliffs of the North Shore.
It is a scenic drive from Charlottetown to Cavendish, where you will enter Prince Edward Island National Park.
Next, it is a quick drive to reach the Anne of Green Gables National Historic Site. Here you'll find the idyllic farmstead where local author Lucy Maud Montgomery drew inspiration for the story of one of Canada's most-loved fictional characters, Anne of Green Gables. During free time on site, explore the memory-filled rooms of Anne's home, stroll the immaculate grounds and Lovers' Lane, and perhaps treat yourself to a memento from the impressive gift shop.
Finally, follow a tableau of rolling farmlands, stunning seascapes, tiny villages and bustling harbors to the community of New Glasgow, voted one of Canada's prettiest little villages.
Enjoy a lobster lunch (or you can choose potato pie, fish cakes or a chicken broccoli crepe) at the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company -- an island landmark renowned for its food. The restaurant is located in a renovated 1913 butter factory and showcases its world-famous preserves. Your meal will include a fresh-cooked lobster with traditional island potato salad and coleslaw, followed by raspberry cheesecake pie.
Return to the ship with fond memories.
