First cruise with Holland America, an excellent experience in every way.  Enjoyed schooner in Portland, hop on hop off in St. John, Small tour bus with informed guide to Peggy's cove and reversing falls in Halifax, walking around Sydney, Cape Breton Island and another schooner in Bar Harbor completed the perfect vacation.  Weather was around 72 most of the time and no rain!
