This was our first time sailing with Pearl Seas. The cruise is well organized and interesting. Much information was provided each day by a resident ship expert. The meals are mostly very good with some selection of regional menu items and excellent service by the restaurant manager and wait staff. The staff overall was friendly and approachable, even often sharing meals with the guests. We did feel we got to know them a little. Nightly entertainment was provided ship resident singers and pianist who was also a magician. We would have liked to see some local groups brought onboard from areas we visited. Shore excursions were excellent with local guides who spoke clearly and slowly, so important for the mostly senior travelers who take this cruises!
The cabins on the Pearl Mist are very large, well maintained, and with full size bathrooms.
The highlight of the visit was the show Fabuleuse - quite an extravaganza with 200 costumed actors, horses, geese, a pig, cannon, fireworks, waterfall, fire, etc. the entire show is lip-synced in French or English (ours was in English). Amazing choreography.View All undefined undefined Reviews
Foundation Hall Museum - excellent displays, some interactive, about the history of the area and beginning of Confederation. Unfortunately, the museum is scheduled to close within two years.
Museum of Immigration and Maritime Museum of Atlantic are both excellent. Nice tour and film in M of I. Good films on Halifax Explosion and on the Titanic in MM of Atlantic. Great dinner at Salty's on the wharf
Pretty town. Took part of the walking tour, then went shopping.
Short tour to a lobster pound and then Raye's Mustard Mill - both interesting.
Guide on trolley tour was excellent. Loved Acadia National Park, even in the rain
