Review Summary

This was a great cruise. I would do it again. We met many people that were getting back on the ship to do the cruise back to Boston. I recommend doing at least a short excursion to find out a little about the area and then doing some sightseeing on your own.

Beautiful area, especially the shoreline. Took an excursion to see the area and visit one of the lighthouses. The tour guide was good - very knowledgeable.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Took the morning to walk the city. Visited the Public Gardens and it is well worth seeing. Had an excursion to Peggy's Cove in the afternoon. That was an awesome place to visit - such a quaint little fishing village with lots of history. The tour guide was awesome - knowledgeable with a good since of humor. Loved her accent!

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Took a walking tour to see some of the churches. What a great tour!! The churches were beautiful and the tour guide had arranged for someone at each church to tell about the history of that church.

La Baie, Quebec

5 out of 5
This was a great port! Some of the locals were there to put on a show for us while we were preparing to leave the ship. They had some blueberry pie and juice for us to sample along with some other demonstrations. The crafts in the port center were beautiful! We took a taxi to an area to hike up to a waterfall. The path was really nice and easy to walk and the waterfall at the end was amazing.

Quebec City, Quebec

5 out of 5
This city is a must to see!! I wish we had planned more time there. I do plan to go back so I can spend several days to really see the city. The people were very friendly and the food was great!! The lower part is such a pretty, quaint place to walk around!!
