Sail Date: Oct 2015

We have river and ocean cruised several times. This was totally unlike those. Tiny cabins because the size of the boat. Very tight quarters but you know that if you read the brochures first.

The ship is this size so it can fit into the locks on the Erie Canal. We went up the Hudson River, Erie Canal , Lake Ontario, and St Lawrence Seaway. We hit the fall color perfectly and what a gorges way to see the colors. Each stop had something to see and learn.

The bar is BYOB of all things. Mark your bottle and the honor system really worked. Least expensive bar tab ever on a cruise. We found the food outstanding. Lunch was soup and sandwiches. Dinner was usually 2 choices with wine and beer served with lunch and dinner. The food wasn't necessarily fancy but was very nice. The service staff cleaned your room and then fed you!

Cabin Review

Cabin IV

Very tight but clean. We didn't come for the cabin.
