August 2016 - Veendam to Canada, New England, New York
This is actually a very busy cruise. Only 1 day at sea. Bar Harbor, Halifax, Quebec, and Montreal are excellent ports with great excursions. We had thought about going around Montreal on our own before going to the airport and VERY glad we took the tour with the airport drop off at the end. We forgot that all the signs are in French. Would have been tough to navigate on our own. Halifax Victorian gardens are a definite pick to see. Veendam is just big enough to have lots going on and not so big that it becomes a zoo. We were pleasantly surprised that the weather was less hot than we braced for in August. We didn't think to bring an umbrella that was needed in Quebec. All in all we really relaxed on this cruise.
