The itinerary was great and sailing the Saguenay fjord was very special. All stops were well planned and appropriate. Good ship, excelent crew. Holland is a great choice. From food to entertainment this cruise was good. And the cost/benefit is really there.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Clear, clean. Mid ship, low level always good for not feeling the ship movement. The ship needs an update, so does the cabin.

Ship tip

It is a great ship, mid size, perfect for anyone that does not like crowds. But it needs an update. Although well kept, one can see it is in need of an update.

Although a big city, you do not feel the stress or the rush. And the old town is a must walking place to see in detail.
