Newly launched Nova Star Cruises is attracting day trippers and travellers from across the globe, enticed by this scenic, relaxing way to journey between Maine, USA and Nova Scotia, Canada.
Guests may simply drive their vehicles or walk on board the brand new ship to experience ten hours of picturesque views and family entertainment on this fair maiden.
The ship cruises along the sparkling bays and historic harbours of Maine, and the charming coastline of Nova Scotia, with its quintessential clapboard houses, craggy cliffs and lonely lighthouses.
Guests may dine on local fare in the two restaurants and four bars on board, with cuisine to suit all appetites and tastes. Try your hand at the Century Casino while crossing the international waters, with its blackjack tables, poker table and slot machines.
Families, couples and singles can relax in over-sized recliner seats or take a nap in a luxury cabin, large enough for a family of four, fully equipped with bathroom facilities. The Nova Spa offers relaxing facials and massages, and guests can while away the hours browsing local artisan wares, books and duty-free goods in the on-board retail outlet, Novatique.
Children are entertained for hours in the Shrimp's Quarters, where they make new friends, ride the slide, watch movies and play games.
Guests beginning or ending their journey at Yarmouth, in Canada's Maritime province of Nova Scotia, are greeted by an extraordinary Acadian past in towns such as Clare, Argyle and Pubnico, the world's oldest Acadian community. From the rich fishing grounds to traditional musical gatherings referred to as a "tyme", Yarmouth and Acadian Shores is a destination shaped by the sea.
Known as Canada's ocean playground, Nova Scotia's rich cultural heritage, picturesque seafaring towns and outdoor adventures make it the perfect holiday destination for travellers heading to or from the east coast of the USA.
