Just completed my round trip on the Nova Star. Can't say enough good things about it. Fantastic service, food, entertainment and accommodations. Will be taking another trip for sure!

The Route

The shortest route between Portland and Yarmouth is straight across the Gulf of Maine. Traveling on Nova Star will offer a much more relaxing and enjoyable alternative to driving 12 hours or more by going overland.
