Fantastic cruise itinerary for someone looking for something different than palm trees and coconuts!  We are from Florida and found this cruise to be one of the best we have taken to date.  Fantastic ports of call; Amazing people we met along the way; Awesome scenery! 


Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We've been on several cruises and this one had to most easy embarkation and disembarkation yet... Went so efficiently and smooth that both took no time at all.

Montreal, Quebec
Due to flight delays, we didn't get to spend much time in this beautiful city.
Cruise St. Lawrence River
Quebec City, Quebec
Rainy day but we checked out a lot of the city via walking (that's what they make raincoats and umbrellas for). Found a quaint place for lunch and highly recommend: Q de Sac, stop by and tell Sam hello!
Cruise Gulf Of St. Lawrence
Great day to relax and get to know the ship
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Fun and quaint place... recommend the GPS tour as we learned a lot from the areas it sent us to.
Sydney, Nova Scotia
Stunning town, fantastic people! We walked around and checked out downtown in the am and then had a walking tour of old Sydney in the afternoon. Absolutely recommend this tour. Our guide, Jay, was so very knowledgeable and fun and he introduced us to some great people and history! Make sure you do this tour and say hello to the 'Ragin' Cajun'! Oh my she was a hoot and seemed like such a beautiful person!
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Peggy's Cove, amazing and another checkmark on my bucket list!
Bar Harbor, Maine
One of the most beautiful places we visited. Took a water tour of the lighthouses and had a blast.
Boston, Massachusetts
So much history and such a diverse beautiful place. This is where we disembarked and spent a fantastic day checking out the city. Visited 'Cheers' and had lunch, another checkmark on my bucket list!!!
