Cruises from Montreal depart from summer through fall.
A decidedly French atmosphere greets visitors to this Canadian city. Many cruise ships dock at the old town, putting the restaurants, shops and many of the major sites within walking distance. Visitors can tour the old town in a horse-drawn carriage. Other lures include the views from the Mont Royal lookout, a ride to the top of Olympic Park, the Western Hemisphere's oldest public clock at the Sulpician Seminary and the Laurentian Mountains. The city hosts the renowned Montreal Jazz Festival in June and July.
