This was an excellent trip! The itinerary was standout, with daily wonderful shore excursions that exposed us to the various ethnic cultures of eastern Canada--food, music, language, history, etc. Staterooms are very roomy and well-fitted. The crew and staff are second to none that we have ever sailed with before, and the food was fabulous;. All in all, well worth the "premium price" of the cruise, and we would certainly recommend this cruise to others. The pasengers all seemed to be aged 60 to 80, and well travelled. So this would not be a cruise for families or kids.
