Polar ice fields, pastoral river valleys and Pacific archipelagos: the 10 cruises plotted on this map run the gamut of waterborne sightseeing adventure and luxury. And whether by nimble small ships or mega-vessels, they ferry Canadians to some of the most sensational and scarcely seen sights in the country (and North America and the world) — experiences that many simply can’t have by foot, bike, car, train or plane.
