Rotterdam

September 2016 - Rotterdam to Canada, New England, New York

NE/Canada Cruise in the Fall

The Rotterdam is a nice size ship, not too big or smalll, and able to dock at the pier at most ports.  Had to use a tender at Bar Harbor, ME.  With the smaller size ship, I didn't feel that the ports were overwhelmed with tourists when we arrived.  On this cruise the ports were close to the town and for those who had not been to these town, I feel that the excursions were not as necessary as some.  We did take an excursion to Peggy's Cove, which was beautiful, but on the day we went there were so many tour buses that it overwhelmed the area (and the one bathroom available).  This was our first non-Caribbean cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

charsims's Tips

Montreal, Quebec - There was a lot of construction in the area if you are trying to drive, beware. Very pretty and historical town that is walk-able from the port, once the shuttle gets you to the real port instead of the temporary one.
Quebec City, Quebec - Bring your walking shoes. Very, very hilly, but historical. The Château Frontenac Hotel was beautiful.
Sydney, Nova Scotia - Dont' go to Peggy's Cove unless you can verify how busy it is going to be.
Rotterdam Rotterdam - On the trip from Boston to Montreal, I would recommend the port side if you want to be able to see land for most of the trip.
