Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2017
Cabin: Junior Suite

Itinerary was great, although the leaves were not changing as we were led to believe. The dining was very good and the crew was very warm and helpful. The turnaround was very smooth as it all took place on the ship instead of going thru customs.

The captain (Mike) for this cruise was very friendly and approachable. He kept us informed about what was going on and was very good at explaining the Canadian government's speed limit on the St Lawrence River to avoid collisions with migrating whales which made us late arriving at certain ports.

The entertainment on the ship was first rate with a great deal of variety. The shore excursions were well thought out and we had a great number and variety to choose from.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

Cabin JS

The only bad part about this cruise was that we moved from a balcony on the Atlantic crossing, which was incredibly quiet to a Junior Suite which was horrible as far as noise goes. We had banging and crashing noises from 5:30am all thru the day until about 3:30am the next morning. We contacted guest services and little was done to stop or lessen the noise. We found out that our cabin was under the Park Cafe and all of the food and towels came thru a passage way with a door right above our cabin. Also during the day the crew was repairing lounge chairs, also above our cabin. I contacted Guest Services about this noise during the day and they said they would take care of it. They did not. We have been off the ship for almost a week and finally catching up on our sleep.

Cabin #8076 should be avoided and those in proximity of 8076.
