Sail Date: Jun 2014

We boarded the Canadian Empress at Quebec City ready for our six night cruise up the St. Lawrence River/Seaway. We sailed to Trois Rivieres, Montreal, Upper Canada Village, Brockville, Gananoque, and finally disembarked in Kingston, Ontario.

The Canadian Empress is a replica steamboat to resemble those in the early 1900's. The rooms were very small, but big enough to manage once you had a routine set up. We had two twin beds, one of which could be put up during the day; however, we kept both of them down and it worked out fine.

There were 48 passengers on our cruise and we got to know most of them by the end of the cruise. The hospitality staff was great. They served our meals and also made up our rooms. The meals were very good and varied. The galley staff took care of special dietary requests to the best of their ability.

Cabin Review

Cabin Standard room

There were two twin beds in the room, one of which can be put up during the day. However, we kept both of them down and it worked out fine. There isn't a lot of room for luggage, but we managed with two big suitcases (we were on a eleven day trip, including the cruise). One was stored under the bed, the other stood up near the door. The bathroom was quite small, however it was manageable.
