With its sprawling coastline, no trip to Prince Edward Island is complete without cruising along the beautiful north-central shore. Enjoy the shoreline views, without the hassles of driving yourself, on this half-day sightseeing tour. Ride through a national park to see beaches and fishing villages, shop for local products, and visit a landmark farm made famous by Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, Green Gables, complete with sight entry included.

During our “10-Day Canada and New England” cruise aboard Caribbean Princess, our ship docked at Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Since we had spare time in the morning before our shore excursion to the Green Gables, we left the ship and walked to St. Dunstan's Basilica in an easy walking distance. Walking along Great George Street, we passed by the statue of Angus Bernard MacEachern, the first bishop of the diocese of Charlottetown. As we approached the basilica, we realized that the basilica had multiple smaller spires surrounding the towering twin spires. The basilica’s stone brick façade with the dominating twin spires and the simple cross on the gable between the spires was impressive enough for the basilica as the Cathedral of the Diocese of Charlottetown and also as a National Historic Site of Canada as a fine example of the High Victorian Gothic Revival architectural style. Upon entering the basilica, we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful Gothic nave which gave us a feel of warm and comforting feel instead of dark and oppressive feel of many Gothic cathedrals. The ornate cathedral ceiling and walls in white color lightened the feel inside the nave, and the light color marble like columns also had the same effect. The ornate high altar with beautiful stained glass window with saints and angels was so elegant. The stately pipe organ and the chandeliers were elegant, too. This basilica is a must visit landmark in Charlottetown.
