Ports

Saint John is the only city on the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada, situated at the mouth of Sain John river. It is a perfect starting point for many trips to admire the Canadian nature: the Irving Nature Park, Rockwood Park or the Reversing Falls, to name a few. You can also visit the Carleton Martello Tower or the New Brunswick Museum to learn more about the area. Finally take a walk at an indoor city market where you can taste local specialities and buy some handcrafted souvenirs.

New York is the most popular city in the United States and exerts a significant impact upon fashion, art, research, technology, entertainment and so much more. Here you can go to a musical, take a walk in Central Park, visit Metropolitan Museum of Art, and see the view from the Empire State Building. This is a destination you need to visit more then once!
