Earlier this year, we wrote about the new ship that Adventure Canada will be getting for the 2015 cruise season: the 198-guest Ocean Endeavour. Now, itâs time to talk about the itinerary that will welcome her into service: the Mighty St. Lawrence.

|June 22||Magdalene Islands|
|June 23||South Coast, Newfoundland|
|June 24||Saint Pierre, France|
