Maasdam

May 2015 - 7 Night Canada & New England Discovery (Montreal To Boston) Cruise on Maasdam

Great Itiniary but...

The best part of this cruise was its Itiniary. The ports of call were excellent and we enjoyed almost all of out shore excursions (one in each port). Do not do The Best of Prince Edwards Island - too many shopping stops and it did not stop at the red cliffs - only saw them from a distance. Avoid the Hop On Hop Off bus - not enough time to do more than one or two stops on only one route. The ship was beautiful and elegant. The staff was friendly but service was just OK. Dinner took forever and we were the last ones out of the dining room every night. We have had better Steward's on other ships. The entertainment was fair - too many nights of the ship's singers and dancers and not enough outside entertainers. There were fewer activities compared to our other cruises and they did not have any game shows - not even the Love and Marriage Show or the Quest. The food was just OK - we did not go to any specialty restaurants. The weather was on the cild side - Fall may be a better tine to go for both weather and the Fall foilage.

LovinCruising's Tips

Cruise Gulf Of St. Lawrence - very smooth sailing
Cruise St. Lawrence River - we were expecting to see more scenery on the shoreline
Sydney, Nova Scotia - The Lewisburg (sp) Fort was very interesting - too bad it was cold and raining
Boston, Massachusetts - we disembarked and went to the airport. lasttime we were there saw the USS Constitution which was a very good tour.
Bar Harbor, Maine - We had done Acadia Park and Cadillac Mt in the past (very good) so we did the Lighthouse tour by sea - very interesting but the weather was cold on the upper deck. The lower deck was heated but crowded.
Montreal, Quebec - we arrived a day and a half early and spent a full day in Old Montreal. No time to tour on embarkation day.
Halifax, Nova Scotia - The Citadel was very interesting - you should take a taxi instead of the Hop On Hop Off bus
Maasdam Maasdam - If you are a late riser be aware that breakfast ends at 10 AM!
Grandeur of the Seas Grandeur of the Seas - The pianist in the Schooner Bar was great - we could sing along with the songs we grew up with
