Review summary

We were pleased with many aspects of our New England and Canada cruise.  The service was great, the cabin (interior) comparable to those on other cruise lines, closet space very generous.  We ate most of our meals in the Lido Marketplace and found the selection and service to be excellent.  It was also our first trip to Canada and we were happy with the ports of call; especially Halifax, Charlottetown, Saguenay and Quebec City.  We chose to end our cruise in Quebec City so we did not get a chance to see Montreal. 

Overall we had a very good time but found the activities on board a bit sparse.  We were glad we only had one day at sea.
