7 Night Canada And Ne Discovery (Montreal To Boston) Sail Date: July 30, 2016 Ship: Veendam Cabin Type: Oceanview Cabin Number:324 Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 11 months ago
Good excursion choices, good food selection and quality in the Lido dining area. Enjoyed the Windows & Digital Photography classes. Friendly cabin staff.
For improvement: a) Suggests insufficient preventative maintenance and quality assurance for several tenders to be non-operational at same time; b) The daily notices and some other papers were difficult to read due to attempts to being artistic...letters on colored backgrounds or tan, beige lettering. A simple Black on White is much more legible, particularly for senior eyes.
The mini-bus tour of Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Park was well worth the additional cost over the 'standard' bus tour. The mini-bus could make photo-stops not available to the standard bus, and the mini-bus driver could make optional stops at rider requests.
An excellent option we took advantage of was to have a rental car available and do our own 4 to 5 hr tour, including where to eat. Rental shuttle (Budget) picked us up at port, and returned us afterwards.
