Review summary

The destinations were wonderful.  Quebec City felt like being in Europe.  PEI was beautiful as was going to Peggy's Cove in Halifax.  Bar Harbor is also pretty and interesting.  Sydney is not much of a destination, so take a tour that brings you out of town.

It would have been 4 stars but for an issue with a tour of Arcadia N.P., which was poorly handled by Shore Excursion Manager: Amy Hanson.

Service and Staff

Our room stewards: Sandri and Agus, were outstanding. Everyone else was wonderful except: Amy Hanson, Shore Excursion Manager, who was arrogant and dismissive of the issue we had with a tour.

The cabin and balcony were very nice clean and quiet.

Ship tip

This ship is smaller and older than any others we have been on. It was easy to negotiate. The food was above average. The shows were not much except for a truly amazing magic show, (Matthew Dowden). Our balcony room was very nice. The destinations were, for the most part, wonderful.
