Review summary

I would definitely recommend this cruise to people. This is not a cruise where you party the whole time and drink. There weren't a lot of young kids. It was an older group. I would guess the average age is 50. Once again, I loved the Lanai Stateroom! I feared that people walking on the deck outside would be noisey. But, that was not the case.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food was good but there was not a great variety or selection that I have had on larger ships. we did the open dining.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
They were just as good as other cruises. I really do not go on a cruise for activities on the ship.

I only went to see a movie. We tried to see the comedian but there were no seats left.

Service and Staff

Everyone was very helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was clean. After 7 days, I had a hard time getting from one end of the ship to the other. I think only deck 6 went the complete length of the ship. All food and activities were on the upper decks.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I loved the Lanai stateroom! You can walk out a sliding door and get to the deck where you can see the scenery. The door and window are designed so you can see out but others cannot see in. The Lanai rooms are on deck 6 where I can get out and walk completely around the ship and see the other side.

Ship tip

It is a mid sized ship.

Hiked up to the falls! I would also recommend this.

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

2 out of 5
We took an excursion which showed the best of Prince Edward Island. Unfortunately, the 6+ hour tour was a real snoozer. If you want to do an excursion take a shorter version.

Quebec City, Quebec

4 out of 5
The excursion to see the church and Montmercy falls. We both wished that we could spend a few hours at the falls. I think it was 90 minutes at the church and only 30 minutes at the falls. They should either add more time for the falls or take some time from the church. The tour guide talked too my about the every detail of the church.

Montreal, Quebec Did not visit port

This was the end of the cruise and got a rental car to go to another part of Canada for a few days. I have been to Montreal before.
