Our cruise was wonderful!  All throughout the St. Lawrence Seaway, the cruise was very smooth.  The shore excursions that we took were great, showing us the beauty of Canada.  The weather overall was good and the colors peaked while on this cruise in some of our destinations, which really added to this being a wonderful, memorable week.  The "free dining" worked out well for us, allowing us to meet different people nightly, including people from our own hometown.  The staff was friendly and helpful!  The laundry facilities worked well. The piano bar nightly was enjoyable.Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was comfortable and enjoyable. We enjoyed our nightly towel "animals". :-) Ice was replenished twice daily which we really appreciated. Our room stewards were great!

Enjoyed the Intimate Tour of Acadia National Park. Had a great tour guide. Colors were beautiful and the view at Cadillac Mountain was fantastic!
