Very scholarly, a big Irish influence and a place where the Kennedy name is held in very high regard. It felt rather like Oxford and Cambridge do, you are acutely aware of the importance of academia, and there is the same 'Town v Gown' mentality that exists in Oxford and Cambridge.
An interesting port, the Pier 21 immigration museum and the Titanic experience excursion made this a pleasant call in beautiful sunshine. We had an excellent guide though which greatly enhanced our experience.
Everything we expected and more with none of the anti British horror stories we had heard having any credence at all. Somewhere I had long wanted to visit and I was not disappointed.The sail up and down the St.Lawrence river makes the stop at Quebec all the more impressive.
A very warm and friendly place, sadness at it being the last port but it was memorable for the very friendly people and for the spectacular harbour entrance/exit. I did not have space to review St John New Brunswick our other port, again the people were nice but we caught it on a bad day it was very foggy and as a consequence looked rather drab and grey, which, I am sure it is not.
