Fantastic Experience

Sail Date: June 10, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship was very comfortable and passenger friendly. The area for reading, crosswords, jigsaw puzzles or just relaxing was my favorite. Very different from most ships where the passenger is relagated to a tiny reading room, this was open and airy and had lots to do. We met several passengers around the jigsaw puzzle area that led to good conversations. Having up-to-date magazines and newspapers daily was great for 15 minutes here and there, especially late in the day. The ship was very clean and staff helpful and friendly.

Pros: The ports visited were interesting and different from other cruises. The excursions were both enjoyable and worthwhile.

Cons: The only excursion that was not good was visiting the fort. The fort portion was fine but to call the 4 minute trip by bus a tour of the city was a joke. Better to just reduce the cost and call it a trip to the fort alone.

Quebec City, Quebec
Loved walking around and taking an overall city tour. The Falls were great and island of Orleans was beautiful.
Don't Miss: Island of Orleans and the Falls.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Even though we landed in hurricane Alberto weather we enjoyed the amphibious tour best. We also did tea at the Halifax Citadel but thought this tour was misleadingly advertized since there was no tour of the city with it. The cost was a bit high for this tour.
Don't Miss: Amphibious tour.

Sydney, Nova Scotia
We loved the area and enjoyed the sailing but the sail was a bit boring since we mostly drifted and got little feel for sailing.
