Review summary

Nice, easy going cruise without a zillion people in every port. Didn't like losing valuable time in Quebec.


4 out of 5
I didn't like that porters came and grabbed my suitcase, carried it about 100 feet, then wanted a tip. I told him no but he was pushy.

Food and Dining

Very nice. Long wait for the singing crepe man but he was excellent!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Excellent massage but they tired to push products on me that I didn't want.

Good dancers, great violinists, great band with the national Geographic movie. Mediocre comedians. I would like to have seen a Broadway type production as I'd seen on a Carnival cruise.

Our time was severely cut short so we couldn't do planned activities. Poor excuse for doing so; they knew ahead of time and should have planned better.
