A favorite of Lonely Planet and Conde Nast Traveler as a top spot to scope out this year, our neighbors up north are celebrating their 150th Birthday in 2017, and there are plenty of ways to take part in the festivities. July 1 is Canada Day, so expect all major cities to host great parties with plenty to see and do. But the biggest draw for next year? All of the country’s 40-plus National Parks will be free to visitors.

Paired with the panoramic views available on Radiance of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas, which both take trips to Canada this year, our Canadian cruises can get you right into the heart of the best the country has to offer, from historic forts within its cities to its natural wonders.

A new year means new opportunities: to get in shape, get a promotion, but most importantly—to indulge your wanderlust by traveling. Thankfully, you have no shortage of options when it comes to planning your next vacation, since Royal Caribbean International offers cruises to destinations all over the globe.
