Port of Toronto

Toronto is the capital of the Canadian province of Ontario, located right on Lake Ontario. It's a thoroughly metropolitan and diverse city that is dotted with a number of well-thought-out green spaces ideal for any cruisers who might tire of the city's hustle and bustle quickly.

While there is much to see and do in Toronto, from world-class theater and museums to interesting local markets and a vast array of excellent restaurants, a visit to CN Tower is a must for any first-time visitor. Standing at over 1,800 feet, CN Tower is the tallest building in the western hemisphere and a ride to the top offers visitors unprecedented views reaching as far as 100 miles away. Plus, the tower is home to award-winning restaurants and even has a kids' play area. Cruisers who prefer the outdoors should check out the Toronto Zoo, any of the city's beaches or the trails at the 400-acre High Park.
