Review summary

This is a good cruise to take if you want a taste of the Quebec, and Nova Scotia area.  We chose the Ocean View Room, which was very comfortable.


The food was good, but if you are a foodie you may judge it as decent.


The crew was friendly and helpful.  The entertainment was okay, but they seem to have a lot of selling items such as Art Actions, etc. as entertainment.


If your looking for a laid back, relaxing cruise this is it.  Not a lot of frills, but nice people and beautiful sites to see if you take the shore tours.

The cabin was great, and the bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was a problem. The tub was really high, which made it hard to get in and out of If your a senior you might want to check on this. They may have a handicap suite.

Ship tip

I would suggest taking the anytime seating. The main dining room opens for dinner at 5:15PM, and it gets crowded. If you don't have a reservation you may have to wait awhile. Or, if you wish a later seating make your reservations for the time you want for every night of your cruise right away.
