We had sailed on this ship earlier this year in Europe. We saw many of the same crew members, who remembered us. The major cities visited - Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, Boston and NYC - were very special. Tours were generally quite nice and informative. Because of speed restrictions on the St. Lawrence by the Canadian government, we were unable to get to Prince Edward Island. We went to Gaspe in eastern Quebec Province. Nothing terrible special there. Our room was quite nice and reasonably spacious. Having an unobstructed view from our balcony is always nice. Service in our room was excellent. Our steward kept the refrigerator and coffee bar stocked just right. Our tour guides were quite knowledgeable and certainly loved their cities. The premium tours in Halifax (to Peggy's Cove) and Montreal (Foodie's tour) were quite enjoyable. We generally had enough time to explore. As a photographer on assignment, I found unique photo ops. The smaller cities - Gaspe and Saguenay - were disappointing. We had hoped to see fall color but were a bit early since it had been quite warm in Eastern Canada while we were there. Our cruise thru the Cape Cod Canal was beautiful, late in the afternoon. The following morning going up the Hudson River to NYC was quite remarkable. Photographing the city, the sky scrapers, bridges and the Statue of Liberty was very pleasurable. In spite of missing a desired city, this was a very special tour and I would recommend Viking again and againg
