Carnival Triumph includes the region of Quebec in its 2009 itinerary.
If you are looking for a different cruise offering the best of both worlds - the view of magnificent scenery and a visit of a city with a reputation that speaks for itself - Carnival Cruise Lines offers three departures from New York for a nine-day cruise entitled "Quebec - After the Glaciers" aboard the Carnival Triumph (102,000 tons) in summer 2009.

These cruises include stops along the St. Lawrence River in Baie-Comeau and Havre St-Pierre. Travelers will enjoy watching the whales and other various marine life, as well as view impressive scenery sculpted by glaciers. The round-trip cruises will leave from New York on June 25, July 23 and August 20, 2009.
