This cruise was a wonderful overview of the Canadian Maritimes and Quebec City. Bar Harbor is one of my favorites and we loved PEI and Halifax. Sydney was our least favorite. Heading north on the cruise was perfect as the day at sea fell at a good point in the week. The food was great, as were the Happy Hour specials. This is definitely an older crowd, but if you go in knowing that, it's very relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend booking your own shore excursions... you see more and it's far less expensive!

Cabin / Stateroom
Great cabin... very spacious, especially in the bathroom.

This is an older adults cruise. Do not bring the kids. Bring a good book, too. The entertainment is somewhat stodgy and they need a much better DJ. When they played music from the different eras, the DJ clearly had no clue what was good dance music from each decade.
