Really enjoyed the small ship. For a relatively new cruise line, service and resources were excellent. The local entertainers were a treat--they added real local color and authenticity. Some shore excursions need refinement in terms of length and content. Quality of food was excellent--especially enjoyed the delicious soups and fresh, creative salads. Cabin was pleasant and comfortable--good mattress and pillows. We really liked the ports and itinerary, but were greatly disappointed that weather prevented us going to Isles de la Madeleine. Truly enjoyed the tour of cemetery where victims of Titanic are buried in Halifax; cruising the Saguenay fjord; seeing the fabulous scenery of Gaspe and Perce.
