Review summary

I don't think I would ever do this cruise again. It is just too hit and miss as far as seeing the fall foliage, and the weather can be suspect. We were not able to visit Prince Edward Island due to weather, which was the one stop we were really looking forward to.

Our room steward was fabulous. All the bartenders were very good, as well as the cocktail waiters. The dining room staff was not up to the previous Holland America cruises that we had been on before.

We had a lanai suite, and on this particular cruise probably wasn't worth the additional expense. It was too cold to really sit out on the promenade for any length of time.
