This was a fun cruise with lots of ports. Unfortunately the weather had changed and we had some very cold and windy days. Montreal and Quebec offered the most to do and see. I would recommend going a few days before the cruise to make the most of Montreal..
Its always hard to judge when the fall leaves wil be just right, I think the week before I went the colors were probably at their best. I heard from several of the Canadians the weather was MUCH better, Most of the fall color was gone in Canada, but Bar Harbor was in full color with all her gorgeous maple leaves..
Holland America always does a good job catering to its older passengers. The Indonesian crew is ALWAYS smiling and happy to assist. Food is good and well presented.
Only drawback was the loading and unloading of the cruise tour buses. Getting 60 elderly people on and off buses takes time. Think most places could be walked or discovered by taxi.
I would definitely recommend this cruise
