LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Two new lavish land programs allow Crystal guests to extend their vacations with five 2014 luxury cruises through North America's East Coast and French Canada.  Available on Crystal Serenity's September-October voyages, the two- and three-night, pre- and post-cruise packages offer travelers the opportunity to explore beyond the rich New England/Canada cruise itineraries that begin or end in Quebec City.  Guests can choose from programs in Toronto and Niagara Falls, Montreal and Quebec City, or enjoy a free transfer between Quebec and Montreal to plan one's own extended adventure.

Toronto & Niagara Falls, 2 nights: 

  • A tour of breathtaking Niagara Falls, followed by a wet sailing excursion through the spray at the base of the falls aboard the Maid of the Mist.

  • A sky-high dinner 1,100 feet above Toronto at the CN Tower's rotating 360 restaurant – home of the world's highest wine cellar – boasting market-fresh regional specialties with a changing view of the city's lights and shoreline.
  • Exploration of a "hidden" Toronto via the PATH – a 16-mile underground network of shops, museums, theatres and world-class dining.

  • Accommodations at the chic Auberge Saint-Antoine hotel in the heart of Quebec City – itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and the Ritz-Carlton Montreal, situated walking distance from the city's many attractions.
