Mother Nature will do one of her best shows in late September and early October, with cruise ships providing views of coastal New England and Canada during the colorful fall foliage display. You'll visit prime leaf-peeping destinations such as Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine and the narrow channels of Quebec's St. Lawrence Seaway, where you'll see colorful leaves on both sides.
Living in Florida, but originally from the New York, I sometimes do miss the Fall and the changing colors of the leaves on the trees. These cruises would be wonderful to experience this time of year and some really nice ports of call.
