Ship Facts: Canadian Empress Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Very relaxing

We boarded in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and a trip to Upper Canadian Village, around the Thousand Islands and returned. Lovely ship, very friendly and accommodating crew. If you are looking for luxury cruising, don't do a riverboat, but if you like the smooth St Lawrence River and always being in sight of land and getting to know almost everyone onboard, then you will love this. We had a Premier room with a double bed, one of two on the ship. We had port holes for windows and one of us had to crawl over the other to get out of bed in the night. However, we could sleep together, which was our goal. We also had a sofa, 2 tables and a sink in our cabin. The bathroom was the standard for every cabin, small but effective. We brought one large suitcase and 2 overnighters and had room to store them, but don't bring more! Limited room to hang clothing but storage drawers were 4 if I recall correctly. No laundry facilities. Everything was clean and kept that way.

We stopped at The Heritage Museum of the 1,000 Islands, Fulford Mansion, Fort Wellington, UCV and the 1,000 Islands Tower. We stayed onboard for many of these stops as it rained every single day, however umbrellas were provided and we could have gone, as did most people. The food was good, though I would stop short of saying really creative. We had food for 3 meals, afternoon tea and evenings during the entertainment. We were never hungry. The menu was varied and they made allowances for preferences and allergies if you told them in advance. Nightly entertainment included comedians/musicians and magic/comedy. We stayed up for 2 and were highly entertained. As I said before, not a luxury cruise but we liked it a lot and would do it again.
