Sit back and soak up a leisurely panoramic peek of Portland’s highlights.

Enjoy the seascapes along the eastern promenade, an expansive ocean-side park peppered with large homes overlooking the water, and ride through the vibrant downtown. Explore the cobbles of the quaint Old Port, which are lined with handsomely restored 19th-century brick buildings housing colourful cafes, boutiques and restaurants. Admire the Portland Observatory, America's last standing maritime signal tower, and the lovely architecture of Victoria Mansion, built in 1860. You’ll pass the Portland Museum of Art and Wadsworth-Longfellow House, and ride along western promenade, before heading across the bridge to Bug Light for fantastic views of Portland and your ship in dock.
