Review summary

the service was genuinely welcoming and caring. we enjoyed all the food we tried, except a disappointing evening in crown grill. no problem, they comped the meal.

(and no, judge judy, we did not eat the steak)

sabatini's was outstanding, and we had an amazing evening at the chef table

dinner. embarking and disembarking were seamless.

sadly, the weather wasn't kind but the people on our itinerary were.

if you get a chance, go to pete's pub in st john. great chat and colorful locals.

if you go to charlotte town, don't miss a tour of the falconry. those birds are

they still have those silly wall hair dryers. ancient lo-def tvs, and no restrooms in the sanctuary. nice and clean, but needs a refit.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
this is like a forgotten wet bar and fancy marble counters..but incredible storage. i counted 24 deep drawers (including in the bath) and 4 closets. there are 7 of these suites in a private corridor. our room was very quiet except when docking or anchoring in the morning. it's on deck 6 so we picked up those noises. really convenient location.

Ship tip

bring a roll-up puffer jacket as it get's really cold in some venues..especially near gangways and deck doors.
