Ship tip

This ship is a bit smaller than some of the newer ships and not quite as up to date on some features. This does not affect enjoyment of the cruise.

Loved the Anne of Green Gables stop. Especially meaningful if you have read the book.

Quebec City, Quebec

5 out of 5
Quebec City was a surprize to us. Very beautiful city with much to see. We did not take the ship's excursion, but hired our own tour guide who did a great job.

Montreal, Quebec

Did not take a tour here. It was raining so we didn't see much of the city.
