Tendering was awful; 2 hours from the time we entered the line until we landed on the pier

Review summary

Room stewards were great, very clean rooms everyday.  Good food, not great, but good. Tours were great, although the Halifax all day bus tour should have reduced the number of participants (two groups instead of one large group) and provide the tour guide and participants with headsets.

The ships entertainers reminded me of a bad high school assembly. The outside performers were great to just OK.

We were right under the rear deck of the Lido level pool. Every morning they would wash down the deck with a garden hose and the water ended drained onto our outdoor deck. I just missed getting drenched one morning. Everyday, our deck was soaking wet.

Ship tip

Smaller cruise liner which makes it easy to get around the ship.

Ports of call

Montreal, Quebec
