Have you always thought about joining a book club, but just haven’t had the time? Well here’s your opportunity.
If you love books, boats, and beautiful scenery, this trip is definitely for you. Adventure Canada is now offering tickets for its first ever Floating Book Club, a 13-day voyage across remote parts of Newfoundland and Labrador. Of course, notable Canadian authors will also be on board to chat all things culture and history.
Terry Fallis, whose Best Laid Plans inspired a CBC miniseries of the same name will be aboard the Ocean Endeavour, as will Annabel scribe Kathleen Winter and Stories About Storytellers author Doug Gibson.
Guests who join them will have the opportunity to pick their brains about Canada, the writing process and more, since their novels can be related to the scenery seen on the trip.
Of course no cruise is complete without the standard fun stuff. Plenty of wine and fine cuisine will be at guests’ disposal (what’s the point of a book club without wine and snacks anyhow?), and some spectacular sight-seeing spots are on the agenda as well.
Not to mention the polar bears, seals and whales that will most likely be spotted along the way.
Adventure Canada is currently selling cabins for the cruise departing July 5 from St. Pierre, a French territory near Canada. Prices range from $4,995 for an interior cabin with a private bath to $16,195 for a cabin with a picture window, a private bath, refrigerator and two lower berths. Flights not included.
